The Zone

This week I was chatting with a friend who will be moving this coming week. He and his family are on a faith journey very similar to ours. He and his wife build my faith each time we chat and I’m so thankful to walk out our faith journeys together! As he and I were chatting this morning, I told him that I don’t know how to do this whole thing because it all just feels so different. Let me explain. I have been known to be a planner. I have been known to charge forward and make decisions. However, this … Continue reading 

We are Tennessee Bound!

I have some of the craziest, best news to share with you all. My family is moving to Tennessee! (I really need to learn where the double ee’s belong because that took way too many times to type!) This story still leaves me a bit speechless, but I’ll do my best to tell you the amazing God things going on. Well, it all started 18 years ago. No, I’m not joking! For those of us who would like to know now all the parts of our future, well, just stop. It just doesn’t work like that. We had no idea … Continue reading 

My Prayer

I just finished the book Forgotten God by Francis Chan this morning. It was an excellent book about the Holy Spirit. At the end of the book, Francis Chan writes a prayer that stood out to me. It wasn’t anything grand or abnormal necessarily, but it stood out all the same. Here is a small sampling: We need Your wisdom and understanding as we seek to live this life. Keep us from disbelief, from fear. We need Your strength to help us do what you are asking us to do and to live how You are asking us to live.  … Continue reading 

You are Unique (in all the good ways!)

For awhile now I’ve been looking around at the unique people in my life. Some I know, some I simply observe. These people are pretty amazing. They have skills many don’t possess because while each of us is unique, a greater emphasis is put on their uniqueness. There’s a boy at my church who is super motivated. He is always volunteering and looking for more ways to help. People could look at his intensity and perhaps get frustrated, but I see a willing soul who gets the vision of giving to others. While I don’t know him or his parents … Continue reading 

Tie Your Shoes

When I started writing on here, one of my goals was to be transparent about my life. I write here whenever I am inspired and can share it. Over the winter I didn’t post much because I was going through a deep refining time that was extremely personal. My inspirations are written down on numerous pieces of paper and journals (yes, I finished one journal and had to start writing in another) that perhaps will be shared in some manner in the future. Today, I wanted to share with you one area of my life that you wouldn’t see by … Continue reading 

JOY

When I was getting ready for bed on Tuesday night, I just had this feeling that Wednesday was going to be a rough day. I was sad the next day was coming and didn’t know what to do with it. When I woke up Wednesday, that was the first feeling I had upon opening my eyes. I did not want to greet the day. While life had been busy the first half of the week, I know (now!) that Wednesday just made me feel behind. I had not accomplished the “normal” things on my list from Monday and Tuesday. The … Continue reading
