Someone Who Will Cry With You…

“One of my favorite passages of scripture is the shortest one in the book.  John 11: 35 simply says, “Jesus wept.”  I love this verse because it shows a savior in touch with the human condition: pain.  He wept.  He allowed himself to feel grief and at that moment, tears streamed down his face like a river.  He’s the friend that will sit with you and cry.”©Simone Holloway, 2020.

On The Run

Hello old friends, new followers, and fellow bloggers-  If we’re honest, I’ve been in this amazing yet crazy place with God.  For the past few months, I’ve felt like David on the run, hiding in caves, seeking safety/shelter.  Can you imagine, you’re living what you deem to be your best life when transition hits?  What…

I Got It Wrong

Goodbye.

“There’s no way that I have an idol in my life.  No way.  I mean, I love God, right?  Yes, we love God but there are things in our lives that we love more.  That, ladies and gents is idolatry, the loving of something/someone more than the Father. “©Simone Holloway, 2018

Shades Down, Lights Off

“At this moment, I understand so deeply what Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain felt, to be surrounded by people that don’t know you, who are oblivious to the inward turmoil that you’re facing because they assume by your success, position, gifting and outward garments that you’re okay.” ©Simone Holloway, 2018

Was It Worth It?

Hello old friends, new followers, and fellow bloggers-  Good evening.  Tonight’s post was hard to write, for it forced me to face another level of vulnerability within myself.  Transparency makes me slightly uncomfortable but I’ve resolved that to live the life the Father has created for me, I must be transparent.  I don’t know if…
