To live with all my might, while I do live

Psalm 84:5
Blessed are those whose strength is in you,
whose hearts are set on pilgrimage.

Yes, hello. I'm Carissa Joy.

Welcome to the place where I bare my soul.

I am: a twenty-something senior at Liberty University, a missionary kid from Utah, a born and raised Californian.

I love Jesus, scarves, dancing (badly), my teddy bear, and YOU.

All I want to do is make it through life fulfilling the purpose God has set out for me.
And I believe He has called me to a very high purpose.

I just don't know what it is yet.

Happy 4th Birthday, blog. :)

  • Me: But I have about fifty books at home I haven't read, there's no reason for me to buy these.
  • My brain: Okay, but consider this: more books.
You are not free until you have no need to impress anybody.

I resurrected one of my recent personal writings and posted it to my blog. It’s a fun one.

Enjoy!

You wrecked me and
I apologized.

How the heck are boys so stressful

I’m not always happy to get my period, but getting it within an hour of coming home after a night of dancing in white pants, yeah that was happy.

Going swing dancing tonight. Last Friday night in SLC!

I still cannot with this.
