Stones of Remembrance

Stories are my favorite. I especially love family stories. I love to tell them, and I love to hear them. I think that’s most likely the main reason that my novel (which I’m currently in the process of editing) incorporates some of the stories of my family that have been passed down to me. AsContinue reading “Stones of Remembrance”

2020 Word of the Year

If you’re new around here, you probably don’t know that this is only my 3rd year doing the whole “word of the year” thing.  I wasn’t sure I was going to share mine this year.  Honestly, I’m still not sure I’m really comfortable sharing my word for 2020.  I resisted this word for a awhile,Continue reading “2020 Word of the Year”

{Life in October}

Happy October, dear readers! I know, it’s been a hot minute since I’ve done a blog post.  Somehow I always delude myself into thinking that summer will bring soooo much time for writing, and then *snap* it’s gone.

It’s Holy Week.

It’s Holy Week. Combine that with just coming home from 5 days with 200+ leaders from our global church family, I’m feeling a little overwhelmed by Jesus right now.  I’m amazed at His greatness and His glory, and I’m constantly reminded that He is worth of every tiny speck of praise I have to giveContinue reading “It’s Holy Week.”

Humbled. One day last week, I woke up with anxiety and stress about so many things.  Car insurance. A child’s health concerns. Lesson plans. Taxes. My to-do list. The phone bill. I posted about some of this on Instagram, followed my own de-stress checklist, and went about my day.  I accomplished a few things onContinue reading “{Humility}”

{WOTY: Trust brings Transformation}

As I posted before, my 2018 Word of the Year (WOTY) is TRUST.  I’ve made it a daily habit to be in God’s Word every day of 2018, and as I am reading, I am asking the Lord to teach me about trust.  Almost every day so far, there has been something that I haveContinue reading “{WOTY: Trust brings Transformation}”

{Word of the year: TRUST}

Living With Intention 2018.  It’s going to be an intentional year for goals.  Last year, I had a few goals, and I accomplished some of them, and others I failed at miserably.  This year, I have more tools to help me be intentional, but more than that, I feel like I can really do thisContinue reading “{Word of the year: TRUST}”
