You Have More Control Than You Think and a Giveaway

I had the honor of reading Jennifer Dukes Lee’s book, It’s All Under Control, and now I get to see the fruit of this book as it releases today. Each time I opened the book, my eyes were opened to new understandings about myself and the concept of control....
There Goes My Heart

There Goes My Heart

A year ago, I watched a U-Haul pull away from view carrying my son and daughter-in-law with all their possessions. A year of living together brought a sense of comfort and routine. But this day a little over a year ago, left me with one thought … there goes my...
What Volleyball Taught Me

What Volleyball Taught Me

I woke up the other morning with thoughts of letting go while at the same time holding on. As I lay in bed, I began to talk to God. Keep in mind the conversation was one-sided until I paused. God used the pause as an opening to show me what it looks like to be me. Let...

You Are the Message

You Are the Message

There is so much I want to tell you. I might say how much I love sunsets and each one is a miracle from God. Or maybe, that family means everything to me. Then again, I could share the depths of my feelings on any given day. Each time, I shared something new, I wonder...
The Healing Properties of Walking

The Healing Properties of Walking

I don’t know when I first began to love taking walks. It almost feels like it’s always been that way. The feeling of freedom, fresh air and fun is quite intoxicating. What I know for sure is that summer leads to consistent walks and I am discovering the...
Foreigner in a Foreign Land

Foreigner in a Foreign Land

Clusters of boys and girls hung out in small groups on the asphalt parking lot better known as the playground. Girls giggled and pointed at the boys and the boys tried to look too cool to notice. I was in one of those circles of girls longingly looking over at the...

Women Are Like That

Women are like that, aren’t they? We long to find someone who has been where we’ve been, who shares our fragile places, who sees our sunsets with the same shades of blue. Beth Moore, Jesus the One and Only Beth Moore has a way of speaking and writing words...
