5 Guidelines to Getting It Together

Can you really have it all together? Maybe not, but there are 5 things that can help!

Sometimes I find I need to learn something more than once. This summer I’m revisiting a few things God has shown me in the hopes that the lessons will go deeper. I’ve often tried to have a life that’s put together. I want to get it all done, perfectly, and come out smiling on the […]

How Awesome Will Your Summer Be?

Having an awesome summer is possible with this simple change!

Summer is the great playtime of the year. It’s like recess; a break from the responsibilities. Except when it’s not.  I find myself holding this idea that summer should be FANTASTIC and FUN and SUN. But there’s still laundry and cooking and vacuuming. The bills keep coming and the everyday-ness of life still happens.  How […]

A Letter to My Future Self

What would you tell your future self? Maybe you need to hear these words today. Don't miss this letter!

My daughter had an assignment at school recently to write a letter to herself, and the teacher will send it to her when she graduates high school. As I listened to her talk about her letter, I found myself thinking about my own letter. Last year I wrote a letter to my body; perhaps a […]

What I’m Reading

This month was a little lighter on the reading list for me. It was busy and I didn’t make the time. I only read one complete book. Other ones were finishing or starting, but one book made it from cover to cover in June. And it was great. It made me realize something about the […]

How Doing Less Helped Me Do More

Do you ever feel like you have so much to do and you can't get anything done? Maybe the secret is easier than you think! Find out how doing less may be the answer to help you DO MORE!

It sounds all wrong. We think about how much we want to get done. The go, go, go, more, more, more spinning around us, and we try to add one more thing. I know because I’ve done it, for years. And it was the very thing making me feel like a failure. I was tired […]

What Circle Are You In?

When it comes to people I see great big circles drawn on the ground. The circles have labels like pretty or smart or athletic. And sometimes the circles even overlap. Everyone that fits in their circle finds their place. Yet, I am left standing on the outside for one reason. I never fit into the […]

Five Minute Friday…Worth

What would you think of when you hear the word WORTH? Five minutes, no rules. See what happens.

It’s been a long time since I’ve stretched my fingers across the keys for five minutes of freedom. I’ve written Five Minute Friday posts before, but then other things came up and my focus changed. When I saw a friend write about today’s word, I just had to get back.   See, the word is […]

When Your Voice Shakes

I had to make an announcement today at church. It was a small announcement, nothing earth shattering. Still my voice shook. I felt silly for letting something so minor get the best of me. My husband assured me you couldn’t tell and all was well. Yet, I was still frustrated with myself. I didn’t want […]

Too Good Not To Share

It’s easy to get lost in the negative in this online world. The news leaves us twisted and social media can leave us green. Perfect pins can make us wonder if we’re ever going to be enough and emails scream for our attention. In all this noise, I still believe there is good out there. […]

3 Things You Need to Know About Who You Are

A visit to any bookstore will show how self-obsessed we’ve become as a society. Titles scream about how we can be thinner, smarter, more productive, a master chef. If you desire it, you can be it (in 12 easy steps!) That’s what they want us to believe anyway. The world pushes us to always look […]
