Looking backwards

Y’all, it’s never too far into the year to reflect and look back at where you’ve been… and more importantly, where you’re going. This year, on January 1st, I sat down and did what I always do on the 1st of every year: I reflected on the previous year, and I looked forward- actively, not passively- towards the new year. …

Guest spot

I don’t know if you guys know… but I blog. Yes, it’s true. And I don’t know if you guys know, but I am helping to found one of the coolest non-profits that you’re ever going to know about if you’re a woman. No offense to the dudes- you know I love you- but this non-profit is called Impact Women …

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 …

What I see

So jumping in on the Facebook ‘how have you aged’ challenge here, and reflecting on the very first photo I chose in 2007 to launch myself into the Facebook world verses the photo I now have representing me as my profile image today.   My goodness… where do I start?

Your greatest weapon

It occurred to me as I was driving Hwy 40 on my way from Tennessee to California for Christmas that God really has this thing dialed. He really does have it all figured out. You see, I was reading my devotional early one morning- somewhere near Amarillo, Texas- as I have done for the last three hundred and fifty some …

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 …

A light in the darkness

On August 1, 2018, a 27 year old woman named Sam Sayers went on a hike at Vesper Peak in the Cascade Mountains in Northern Washington… She did not return. I’ve been waiting to write this blog because I wanted it to end on a happy note. I wanted to type the last period knowing the story was over- or …

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 …
