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 […]

Peace on Earth — Part 4

Peace on Earth — Part 4

If you read my last post, you might recall that I encouraged you to consider your purpose, people, and place as a way to evaluate your level of peace as you enter 2019. Perhaps your relationships are great, but you’re feeling unfulfilled and need to eliminate something unfruitful in your daily activities. Replace that thing […]

Peace on Earth — Part 3

Happy 2019! I’ve never been happier to see the start of a new year! It’s been a minute since I posted Part 1 and Part 2 of Peace on Earth. As I went back and reread this series, I was reminded what a powerful weapon praising God is against the enemy’s schemes. (Never underestimate the […]

Peace on Earth — Part 2

Peace on Earth — Part 2

Just last month, Mark and two of his friends from college made a trip to Atlanta for the weekend. In my typical fashion, I was scurrying around until their arrival to make sure I had everything at our place needed for Mark and his friends to feel welcomed and loved. Chris and I knew we […]

Peace on Earth — Part 1

Peace on Earth — Part 1

And as You speak, a hundred billion galaxies are born… And as You speak, a hundred billion creatures catch Your breath… And as You speak, a hundred billion failures disappear… In my priority time earlier this week, I started by listening to these words from Hillsong’s So Will I. It’s a song that I initially […]

We Miss You

We Miss You

There’s hard. And then there’s another level of hard. I’ve thought about this post for nearly 300 days. This marks the 4thyear that I’ve posted a blog calling for prayer for high school and college freshmen. I’ve asked parents of freshmen to submit names and I’ve paired each student with a willing prayer warrior. The […]
