On New Year's Day of 2011 I sent my first blog post out into the internet. Since then I've written over 500 posts on RISING*SHINING and I've grown to be so thankful to have this space to connect with new people and to write, write, write. It has made me a better writer and put me in touch with a creative side I didn't know I had.
Below are some of my favorite posts that I've written through the years, organized by topic, as well as links to the topic archives if you'd like to keep reading.
