Hey, I'm Allison.

Thanks for stopping by! I like to imagine my little slice of the internet as the online equivalent of a lakefront park: picnic blankets, sand pails, and long conversations as the waves splash.

Whether you're looking for beauty, truth, or solidarity,
I hope you find it here.


Three of my favorite places in the world 👇 Milwaukee Art Museum, Lake Michigan, Assisi



Take a deep breath. Real deep like it goes way down into your core. Do you feel that abandon, as if you could take on anything without bondage or fear? Y'all, that's the place Jesus wants to bring you in every moment: freedom and life in abundance.   



Sometimes we can imagine life with Christ to be stale and routine. How sad is this!? The truth? We are invited to the new: new life, new challenge, new adventure. "The world offers you comfort, but you were not made for comfort. You were made for greatness!"



We're going to make mistakes, that's guaranteed. But we've been gifted an Institution founded by Christ Himself. We have the Sacraments, the Scriptures, and the Saints who rejoice with the Trinity now and show us it's possible to be Holy!
