coffee time.


cafe du monde cup, a gift from people I love
a million books and notebooks
my bible. 


Lately I've just been collecting quotes from all over the place. 
Class, reading, good conversations.
It's my best friend rubbing off on me. 
[she's like... a professional quote compiler. it's impressive.]


If you're interested, read on.


about research:

"desire is more important than opportunity or ability.
it's not the most talented people who get to do this. 
It's the ones that really want it."
-Dr. Gary Schnittjer

"As a Christian, research should be one of the most humbling things you can do.
We believe we find truth, we don't create it.
The right attitude is one of submission."
-Dr. Toews

"As a Christian in research, it's important not to undertip
and leave a gospel tract. 
Do things with excellence, treat people well, 
and your worldview will matter in the best way. "
-Dr. Williams


On Life and Suffering:


"Only the suffering God can help."
-Bonhoeffer


"The presence of God is a game changer"
-Dr. Toews

"And this do, knowing the time, that it is already
the hour for you to awaken from your sleep;
for salvation is nearer to us than when we first believed."
Romans 13:11

"all coping mechanisms work, they just have side effects."
-Jeff Black



Just a few things that have been running through my head. 
Happy Friday! 
Have a lovely weekend!

  1. I love this so much; thanks for sharing! It makes me miss PBU like crazy... esp. Dr Williams and Toews. "Game-changer" is one of his most favorite expressions.

    Also - thanks for the love! <3
