Little did I know that God was preparing us for the day we didn’t know we’d encounter. My husband was scheduled to have a medical test on Wednesday, June 30th, and at first he didn’t want me to take the time off work to go with him. I began thinking that I should go with

No one more than I loves comfy, serene, and beautiful places. And yet, it’s only from times of agitation that I have seen myself grow beyond what I thought I was capable of. I don’t like this any more than you. We are creatures of comfort and I’m all about creating cozy, inviting spaces in
Why do you think you can do it all and not wear yourself down? Everyone needs margin to rest, reset and refuel. One day at a time. That’s what we were created for, to only handle so much and then let it go and rest. It’s when we try to take on more than what
Loving people we disagree with isn’t easy, and yet, I feel God convicting my own heart all over again. God calls us to love others and live unoffended, and not give others control over our emotions or how we live out our future. Learning to love others well, when it’s hard, is God’s best for
Friends show up as strangers, it’s up to us to make friendships. Forever friends keep showing up in all the seasons of our lives. Sitting in the quietness of my friend’s finished basement with a pumpkin spice coffee, is a huge gift to my heart. Her guest room is welcoming and a familiar place like
There are messages to be delivered, projects to be completed and battles to be won. God uses unlikely people to accomplish His will. I dreaded speech class in college, but I got an A in spite of heart palpitations every time I had to speak in front of the class. I liked writing, but I

The first year or two we lived in Mississippi I pretty much skipped my favorite season, fall. I was waiting for the cool crisp, sunny weather to arrive before I decorated, or dressed for the season. Shorter days came, school was in full swing and others put out their fall decor.I waited. It was a
I overslept my alarm. I can’t even remember hearing it go off or shutting it off. I jumped out of bed with a start, and ran to wake up my daughter for virtual school (hello fall of 2020), to make coffee and to get ready to leave for work. Mornings like this feel invasive. Pleasing
There are times God has to practically shove us out of our nest and send us flying into the unknown, because we’re not willing to take a risk on our own. Whether it’s God’s plans or ours sometimes we just need to move. This is exactly where I was when we moved from Colorado to
Nothing about it made sense. Our Plans or God’s? Maybe it doesn’t even matter. We had prayed all summer long and felt nothing but a desert in our souls. My husband’s freelance work begin drying up more and more. The owners of the home we were renting decided to sell. We had no visible direction.
Irrational fears don’t play fair. Like when we don’t apply for a new job because we’ve worked on one computer platform for so long that we have convinced ourselves we’ll be quite computer illiterate on the other one. This may sound stupid y’all, but fears often do in hindsight. Little irrational fears combined with larger,
Irrational fears may be silly, or embarrassing, but y’all they are for real. I know they are no joke because of how many times I find myself angsting over or paralyzed by one. I bet you’ve experienced this in one way or another in your life too. The first and only job I was ever
Nothing prepares us for lightning strikes stripping the bark off of trees during storms or seasons of life where it’s hard to focus, as our life takes on new shapes and forms we’ve never seen. Maybe we have less time, or too much time. We may find ourselves pivoting from the path we’ve known. A
I sat in my grandfather’s lap and easily convinced him to get hearing aids when no one else could. Not my mom (his middle daughter), or my grandmother. They may have tilled the ground, and prepared the soil of his heart and mind. But, it was his brown haired, brown eyed persuasive granddaughter, who had
