p_turp Great time with my parents this weekend! Only fitting to eat Hispanic food as I think we might've been born in the wrong region! I love them and I love their unconditional support for my endeavors. They're also pretty in love after 30 years. My heart (and stomach) are full. || #ricenbeans #guac #vscocam #vsco #instasize 1w

p_turp Modern Student || No longer restricted to the classroom, the modern day student is now online. #HigherEd is now changing its scope and rhythm. I have the opportunity of designing an online classroom experience. We're all designers of things. We're creators, distinctively like our Creator. We use words and interactions with media to engage and inspire, but it must never remove the human element. Knowledge is meant to be applied. Don't just fill your head, fill your heart. #instavsco #vscocam #vsco #instasize 1mon

p_turp Protection || We are guarded people. Fortresses in our hearts everywhere. What are we so protective of that we don't let anyone in? The problem is that we place our trust in other people and therein find our identity in how they handle our most vulnerable, guarded things. God didn't design it to be this way. He designed you to trust Him and His heart first and foremost. The paradox when we do this is we allow God to define us. It may seem like misplaced trust in someone you've never seen, but in reality it establishes a firm foundation that cannot be shaken. God will never let us down in our most significant of triumphs and in our biggest of failures. He redeems what's broken and trades ashes for beauty. This is what He's known for! There's hope in Him! Allow His boundaries to be your boundaries and dwell in a full, purposeful life where the things that matter most are elevated. He knows what we best need, after all, because he created us. As Martin Luther once penned, "A mighty fortress is our God!" "Did we in our own strength confide? Our striving would be losing, were not [God] on our side." #InstaSize #vscocam #vsco #igpuertorico #igsanjuan 1mon

p_turp Meet @philipluca || he's a Romanian Lion tamer (see photo), v-neck ambassador, multi-lingual cultural connoisseur, makes a mean breakfast via his friend baby ray, and in a world where beards can be worshipped, he's a great hair and beard advocate. He's hosted me this weekend in DC and I'm grateful for his friendship. Show him some love. 1mon

p_turp A storm is but for a season. His joy lasts a lifetime | I've been on a plane way too often the past two months. There were some ups and downs, some uncertain moments and some moments of relief. Through it all, I've learned life and flying have many things in common. To be surrounded by majestic imagery of our world from 30,000 feet doesn't make the world around us (or the people who dwell upon it) at 5 or 6 feet any less majestic. It's more about perspective, trust, and allowing yourself the opportunity to see life differently. Wherever you're at today, find encouragement in knowing that we have good days, bad days, and mediocre days. Gaining godly perspective on the happenings of your good, bad, and seemingly mediocre days is priceless. It brings a sense of relief in the chaos, a sense of humility in success, and sense of trust in uncertainty, and a compass to our big decisions. I hope my little journey brings some encouragement to others today. Be blessed. || #instavsco #instasize #vsco #vscocam #jetblue 1mon

p_turp The Three Flags of El Morro || Left to Right: "Cross of Burgandy" or Las Aspas de Borgoña [Historic Spanish Battle Flag], the Puerto Rican National Flag, and the USA flag. The first shots for the US in WWI were fired from El Castillo's battery in 1915 which prevented a German supply ship, the Odenwald, from delivering supplies to German submarines waiting in the Atlantic. #vsco #vscocam #igpuertorico #flags #banderas #InstaSize #instavsco 2mon
