It's coming to the end of the year and I thought I'd share some different perspectives that have helped me find joy in my life. Obviously, I have my days—but these are a few ways I'm able to restart my outlook on life every morning that God blesses me with: Read More
Imagine what it'd be like to only be able to speak to God during specific times throughout the day, or even the week. What if God only allowed our prayers to be heard on Tuesdays from 4–4:15pm? That any other time you'd call to Him or ask for guidance, He wouldn't be listening. Read More

It's been a long run. Crazy to think it's been two & a half years at the company. I didn't think I'd be at Fossil for more than 3 months since I started as a temp. So much has changed about me. Not only as a professional, but as a person as well. I've grown into someone I never thought I'd ever be... Read More
