When do you take off the leash?

When do you take off the leash?

As most of you know, I’m the momma to a four-legged boy named Mo. I’ve always loved dogs, but when we had two children within 19 months of each other, I found caring for a dog to stretch me beyond my maternal capacity. Consequently, we opted for a long stint without a dog. Ten years […]

Priorities that Make a Difference – Part 7

Today marks a personal victory. I type my last entry of this Priority Time series with great celebration! When I started this series in the early summer of 2018, I believed in the value of a priority time. A daily, unhurried time to get to know the Lord through the Bible and prayer was a relational […]

Priorities that Make a Difference – Part 6

For those of us who grew up in church, it isn’t a newsflash that we should read our Bible and pray. Yet if we were to be transparent, most of us find ourselves wanting the time to be more impactful at best or, at worst, we’ve given up in defeat. Like many other aspects of […]

If you’ve followed my blog for the last several years, thank you! It’s an honor that you would read my words. I have to laugh at myself – and I hope you’ll at least smile with me – as I jump into today’s blog. I have a list of ideas that the Lord has given […]

What’s it like to be on the other side of you?

What’s it like to be on the other side of you?

I’ve found myself as a student again in this season of my life. In January, I began two classes. One of the classes posed a question that I dare you to ask those around you: What’s it like to be on the other side of me? Don’t just ask one person. Don’t just ask people […]

A Life Lesson from Travel Size Shampoo

A Life Lesson from Travel Size Shampoo

Long ago and far away in another life, I travelled for my job and learned how to pack efficiently. The rule of picking one or two pairs of shoes and coordinating all of your wardrobe around them is especially important when you wear a size 12 shoe. I was pretty good at packing back then. […]

Singing in the Rain

I haven’t done a demographic study of my blog followers. I suppose I should… along with 100 other things in the SEO and social media world. My guess is that you’re a woman over 20, maybe over 30. If you’re younger or a male, kudos to you! You’re smart to hang around and learn some […]

Navigating the Minefield of Doubt — Part 2

Is it the light at the end of the tunnel… or a train coming straight for you?  Sometimes in our journeys, we’re faced with forks in the road and questions we cannot answer. Last week, I introduced you to the author of Psalm 77 and his honest struggle. Check out last week’s post if you […]

Navigating the Minefield of Doubt — Part 1

Navigating the Minefield of Doubt — Part 1

Have you ever begged the Lord to speak clearly? … to show up in some tangible way? … to provide an answer to a humanly unanswerable problem?   Have you ever been encouraged thinking you’re sensing God’s answer on one day, only to be completely uncertain the next? If you nodded your head, you’re in […]

That Woman…

That Woman…

If you don’t have college-age kiddos yet, you might want a heads up that you’ll become a prime target for some clever marketing from your child’s college. So far, we’re two for two in colleges hitting us up to buy outrageously priced care packages at the beginning of the school year. The selling technique goes […]
