a_m_arie I'M HOME. Finally. Things I learned this semester: community is sweet, people love me more than I know and deserve, and learning is rich. God is very faithful, even when he's quiet, even when I neglect His love. 2d

a_m_arie Since December I have read all these (though for one of them I simply finished half). Not pictured are a novel, a feminist tract, and a whole heap of critical theory articles. Please be impressed by my reading skillz. (Two more papers and a reflection essay until I'm done with finals!!) 4d

a_m_arie Sometimes I feel tired and unmotivated and adventure-less and lacking in creativity and discouraged, but then God says, "I love you." And I may still be all those things, but at least now there's light. 1w

a_m_arie And with that, I conclude my last official Torrey reading until my Senior spring. Finishing the 776th page of this particular text, however groggily done, was a milestone in my education. I am immeasurably thankful for Torrey and all that it's taught me so far. Oxford, I'm one step closer to your hallowed halls. #torreylyfe #torreyhonors #BrosK // "Ah, dear friends, do not be afraid of life! How good life is when you do something good and rightful!" - F.

a_m_arie Another #latergram from when I led #thiurbanplunge2016, now a week ago. Some wisdom from #streetart. Signs and words are everywhere if you just look. #venicebeach #LAstory 1mon

a_m_arie Another photo from the Mosaic House last weekend. I'm so thankful for color. This may sound strange, but I find it oddly nourishing. How odd and lovely and poetic is it that God gave us color when he made the world? #thiurbanplunge2016 #LAstory #venicebeach 1mon

a_m_arie Urban Plunge yesterday was an absolute gift. I am always joyfully surprised by the many springs of color flowing up out of the nooks and crannies of Los Angeles, and this, in my opinion, is one of the most beautiful I've witnessed to date. It is an image of the rear studio in the Mosaic House of Venice Beach. I am blessed by Cheri and Gonzolo's quiet pursuit of joy through abounding color and good work. #thiurbanplunge2016 #LAstory {more photos to come} 1mon

a_m_arie I had coffee and read books at Dripp today. It was great. Also, please notice the colors in this floor. Fasting from coffee for Lent has definitely changed my experience of coffee, a fact for which I am thankful. 2mon

a_m_arie This is a picture of Oxford. I am posting it to let the people know that I will be studying abroad there in Fall 2016 with some beautiful people. I cannot phrase anything to adequately express my excitement - elation might be a good word. Perhaps "walking on air." 2mon

a_m_arie This is the view from my lovely home. I left today for another semester - always somewhat surreal. But I look forward to what the Lord has in store this spring, and remain thankful that home is still quite close. #radlands #back2biola #laskagood 4mon

a_m_arie I went hiking today...for some reason I'm always surprised at just how beautiful the beautiful parts of Redlands are. How lovely it is that beauty inspires sweet surprise. This is one spot I'd never discovered. Thankful that Paige and I had the joy of finding it together today. #socality #socalwinter #liveauthentic #laskagood 4mon

a_m_arie Hi. I like coffee and singing. I also like books - I'm reading Pride and Prejudice again and just finished Wuthering Heights yesterday. ️ "It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife." // #siblingsinsnow {Pt. 4/4} 5mon
