On Quitting Facebook

Oh dear Facebook, dear, dear Facebook… I think it’s time and you know it. I’ve been wrestling with you and me for weeks now. Wondering why I was showing up and giving over so many valuable minutes to you (even with 9 months of social media free weekends). You know you weren’t adding value to […]

IT’S “EVALUATE YOUR LIFE” DAY!

Today is a special day for many reasons. It’s my sorority’s National Day of Service today. I’m co-hosting my first women’s small group with lovelies from our new church in our little apartment, Star Wars: Episode VII tickets go on sale tonight (woot! woot!) AND it’s “Evaluate Your Life” Day. Go, Google it! It’s a real thing and one that I […]

I SURVIVED THE WILDERNESS

A dear friend emailed me about 8 weeks ago and invited me to take an online class with her. When it comes to spiritual growth, learning more about the character of God and doing as the Spirit calls us to, I trust her. And though the class has a Holy Yoga component to it (not for me), it […]

DIY Perpetual Journal

Last December, my son and I visited a high school friend of mine who lives in California. We chose to visit after Christmas and to ring in the New Year together. It was a wonderful four and half days of warmer weather, reflection and dreaming. Every morning, I would get up and get a cup […]

In This Middle Space

I have been struggling with recovery from having my wisdom teeth removed. I didn’t expect that I would bounce back like my son when he had his out at 15yo and was eating a cheeseburger in 3 days, but I did not also anticipate my lengthy recovery. Even as I sit and write this, I am […]

52 Lists Project Journal

I am SO excited about this project for a few of reasons! 1 | Because a friend who knows me better than I realized found and bought me one and I didn’t even know it existed. I love feeling loved by God through others. So good. 2 | Because it’s something I know I’ll use and […]

Making It Happen 6×6

Good stuff isn’t it? I really don’t have anything to add to it except for how I’m making it practical for me and my kiddo. By now, you know I journal stuff… GETTING TO MY 6 And my preparation for putting together my 6×6 was no different. For me this wasn’t a stretch since I’d […]

#GOOFYFORGUATEMALA

Last November, I heard our pastor share about the mission fields that the church has been an active part of. We were still fairly new members to our church here in TX and I was feeling like the world was too huge for me to know where to begin acting on faith. I was incredibly overwhelmed. He shared about how […]

MAKING ROOM

I have missed this space and sharing in it, but I’ve been busy since my last post; busy making room. I didn’t even realize that I was doing this, but while reading this year’s Naptime Diaries Advent Devotional (now out of stock), Advent took on new meaning for me. In full transparency, we don’t begin counting down until December 1st […]

PREPARING FOR THE NEW YEAR

This is truly one of my most favorite times of the year. Well, yes because of Christmas and the holiday cheer and its meaning and its wonder but also because I start planning for the following year. ___ This has caused me much angst in years past. Partially because I’ve tried to do it all […]
