Good Grief

Grief is a hard thing. No matter how you slice it, it’s just stupid and hard. A very sad thing happened to my family yesterday. Our four month old Golden Retriever puppy was hit by a car in front of our house. My three sweet children and my husband and I all sobbed in our front yard as Tracker took …

Comparison killed the cat

You’ve all heard the saying, “Curiosity killed the cat!” But I think that little ditty is due for a revision. Comparison is the real killer, wouldn’t you agree? Man, it’s so funny how God works. I just taught on this topic at the Impact Women’s Conference in Nevada just last month, and yet it’s still been coming to front of …

Dangerous ground

Okay, Readers… it’s time we take a few steps onto some dangerous ground together. If you’re a regular reader of my blog, you know that I’ve been on a hiatus this past month. We’ve been on a pretty intense travel schedule between my work and my husband’s rescue efforts (a story for another blog), and honestly I wasn’t sure exactly …

Against the wind

“Against the wind We were runnin’ against the wind We were young and strong, we were runnin’ against the wind.” I love that song. Well, I love the Forrest Gump soundtrack anyway. And of course the lyrics to this song fit perfectly with my blog today because not only am I an official ‘runner’ now- as you know if you’ve …

What’s the point?

Last night was my monthly women’s huddle. I have the great pleasure of leading a small group of Impact Women who are bound and determined to change their life! No small responsibility, I assure you, but I am learning just as much as they are on this path to self discovery and self mastery. And recently, God has put such …

Mary, did you know?

I hate that song. I’m sorry if it’s your favorite Christmas song, but I’m definitely not a fan. Is it new? I think I heard it for the first time last year, and now there are covers of it! Are there really multiple recordings of this terrible ballad? I can’t get into it because although it’s catchy, I’ll admit it, …

Attacked

Have you ever been attacked? I’m talking about the kind of attack, where you’re going about your day as if nothing is out of the ordinary, and all of the sudden someone shows up and scares you to your core. They hold a gun to your head, and they make you question absolutely every decision you’ve made that day to …

Transplants

About two years ago we put the first house we ever bought on the market. We have been so very blessed by God. Sometimes I don’t understand it. I often find myself just in awe of what He has done in my life… both before and since I’ve known Him. But alas, Thomas and I were ever so very blessed …

Washed away

As I climbed into the… hot tub (let’s just call it what it is) I realized… … I’m free! When I was young, and even into my late teens and early twenties, I believed with all my heart that one day the Bible would be like the earth being flat. One day we would all just feel silly for having …
