Passion. I’ve always heard that word and felt super inspired. Like wow. Yes, passion, let’s do this thing! But do you ever feel like your “passion” isn’t going anywhere, or isn’t ever enough? I’ve been pursuing a professional career in the performing arts since I was nine, and even before I knew exactly how to […]


Business Tips

Dear Liv, Bad news: you’re not going to get any less awkward. Good news: you’re going to become more confident and embrace “adorkable.” It turns out, boys do like adorkable, so you’re going to be just fine. About boys, we might as well hit that topic right away. Boys are weird. They don’t become less weird […]

The year 2017 is here and like many of you, I’m making my list of New Year’s Goals. One of those goals being to spend LESS time on social media. But HOW ON EARTH am I supposed to stay connected to people?! How am I supposed to stay up to date on the latest trends?! […]


Encouragement

I love ice skating.  I’ve been going ice skating since I was really little. Although I really like it, I am so, so bad at it.  I grip the wall of the rink and shuffle myself around. If I slip even slightly, I freak out. I went ice skating a few weeks ago with a couple of […]


Encouragement

The glimmer of my tiny Christmas tree lights shimmer and I exhale, writing this to you. We are about to celebrate the greatest of all miracles in a few short days – God coming to earth. It is truly a miracle, that God came down to get us. There are just some times and some seasons […]


Encouragement

I clutch onto the candle, look at the glimmering lights of the tree, and I know what my heart needs most this Christmas and every Christmas. His light to penetrate my dark. Sometimes that’s painful. I spent many mornings this season, in front of this little tree with God, praying like He’s my only hope […]


Encouragement

When I was in 6th grade, I went to my very first dance.  I watched as all of the boys and girls found partners, and began swaying an arms length apart from each other.  My mom had insisted on coming to the dance with me, and she made it clear that if I wanted to […]


Encouragement

I met this girl many years ago, although I don’t really remember how or when she became such a huge influence in my life. Nonetheless, here we are. She’s ruthless, cold-blooded, and extremely detrimental. She’s insulting and, frankly, she’s just annoying, and I can’t seem to get her words out of my head. I know […]


Encouragement

People-Pleaser. I’m pretty sure if I were to have a phrase tattooed on my forehead, it would be “people-pleaser.” I know there are many of you who are reading this saying, “Yup! That’s me too!” Now in a way, people-pleasing can be a great thing. Jesus commands us to help and serve one another in love and […]


Encouragement

We have heard the adage, “Today is a gift, that’s why it’s called ‘the present!’” But how can we BE present when so many distractions are calling us to look forward or to look behind? How do we find the balance between the tenses so that the here and now aren’t completely overlooked in the […]


Encouragement

What is sacrificial love? The question is posed to a room full of young people. I mull that question over in my mind. Over, and over, and over. It tumbles through my thoughts as I’m shoving suitcases into the back of the van the next morning–trying to get people loaded up, because we’re running not […]


Encouragement

I always expect the worst. That way, bad outcomes are never as bad as what I imagined. And when the worst does happen, at least I get the strange, sad pleasure of saying “I knew it.” My trick is that I keep this whole thought process internal, so people don’t label me as a pessimist. […]


Encouragement

“I just don’t feel like myself.” That’s what I heard myself saying to a room full of women, half of which I’d just met. As hard as I tried to keep it all locked inside, the tears began to fall, like I was mourning a someone gone missing. She felt long gone, the real me. […]
