farmgirlinflipflops "Much in life depends on the quality of our thoughts." - Dr. Phyllis Rand
For my education class, I had to read an article by one of our professors on teaching students critical thinking. "Learn to love hard work," she writes. Sometimes thinking right IS hard work... welcome to college and adulthood and life! But what I'm grateful for this morning is that His thoughts are so much higher than mine. That His thoughts toward me are peace, and grace, and forgiveness... always. If I want to pattern my life after His, thoughts are a great place to start!! #educationclass #unexpectedblessings #homework #criticalthinking #JESUSthoughts

farmgirlinflipflops "Broken people are the most beautiful." Forgiven people forgive the unforgivable. Grace is the stuff of 70x7, and "the new has come." If I'm a forgiven person, why can't I extend the same kind of love that Christ showed?
I'm so very blessed by the kind of strong, beautiful women God put in my life. "For such a time as this..." We have the best Jesus ever - His constant work of grace unfolding. I love our standing-conversations over coffee and bonding over struggles. Life is a beautiful mess.

farmgirlinflipflops Christmas break Mondays are a whole different animal from spring semester Mondays. Those times when I took Abby and we went to lunch after the dentist and we ate hamburgers and went exploring on frozen roads... those are the tiny memories that make life worth living. But... bring it on, Monday. I survived you once and I'll do it again!! #mondaymonday #loveyourmondays #exploring #memories 3d

farmgirlinflipflops Sometimes I'm all healthy and stuff... and sometimes I celebrate the end of a successful week and the beginning of another. So grateful for friends like @keriley17_ who introduce me to Trivia Crack and sing aloud in the car and tease me about... oh, all kinds of things. #marbleslab #lifeisgood #sundaynight 4d

If you'll be my sweet melody...."

I think I just realized this is my new favorite song. Like seriously.

farmgirlinflipflops today's pretty much amazing study views. This is high on the list of favorite places to for hitting the books. It's three stories above the harbor and surrounded by the jazz and coffee of Drowsy Poet. Literally heavenly.

farmgirlinflipflops cool things this morning at 0600: (1) I worked out (I swear I'll have calf muscles SOMEDAY!!) and (2) I figured out the self timer on my iPhone!! Perks to having the gym all to yourself: nobody giggles at your wimpy reps or your fussing at an iPhone on the floor. #workout #iphoneprobs #suchislife #photographers #lesigh 6d

farmgirlinflipflops "In the fourth watch of the night he came to them, walking on the sea. When the disciples saw him, they were terrified, and cried out in fear; but immediately Jesus spoke to them, saying, “Take heart; it is I. Do not be afraid.” Peter answered him, “Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.” He said, “Come." (Matthew 14:25-29)
Sometimes, Jesus comes to us and calls to us in the *most* UNCONVENTIONAL of ways. And when He says "come"; though the way seem impossible to our minds, it's all-possible in His. Peter only begins to fail when he takes his eyes off of Jesus; you know the story. But "take heart" and fix your eyes on Him. Jesus is the One walking the waves at midnight - He's the One asking us to come - and He's the one Who will hold us up.

farmgirlinflipflops LAST first day of school!! Graduation is on the horizon and I couldn't be more excited. People ask if I'm nervous about graduating and hitting up the "real world," and I think, "NO SIR!" If I ever actually am, it'll only be because I can't decide which adventure to choose first. So bring it on!! Jesus always has the grandest ideas. #senior #toomanyselfies #graduating #adventures #hannahtakesontheworld2015 1w

farmgirlinflipflops I'd like to let Colorado know that next time I want a roller coaster ride, I'm not talking about 30,000 feet above the Rockies. You should've seen this impressive little storm in real life! #flying #southwestair #latergram 2w

farmgirlinflipflops I'm leaving Washington today, and I mainly want to take two things with me: (1) a handful of blue mountain sky, and (2) this guy. — All my Facebook friends already met him, so I thought it was high time I introduced Insta to our adorable faces. #helloworld 2w

farmgirlinflipflops I couldn't help it... I just couldn't! One last blended salted caramel mocha before leaving my most favorite coffeeshop on earth - in this little mountain town just 20 minutes from wonderful snowboarding and gorgeous vistas. Sometimes I wonder why it's not a bigger town... and then I realize that if it was like Vale or Aspen, then, well. Maybe I wouldn't love it quite so much. #tinychewytown #smalltownlove 2w

farmgirlinflipflops Abby wanted to go for a swim, but I wouldn't let her.
Just kidding - she completely freaked out when I got "too close!!!" to the steep bank. Don't worry, the water can't be any less than 40 degrees and about two inches deep. #noswimming #january
