Who Says Getting Older Isn’t Fun?

Who Says Getting Older Isn’t Fun?

For years, I believed my mom was thirty-nine years old. Even after we celebrated another birthday mom always declared she was thirty-nine and in her defense, she looked great. When my brothers and I were young, we took mom's age at face value and didn't question the...

EnneaWhat?? My Life as the Helper

EnneaWhat?? My Life as the Helper

EnneaWhat?? An Introduction to the Enneagram

EnneaWhat?? An Introduction to the Enneagram

I am the person who is not only intrigued by personality tests but also loves to take them. Now before you get the wrong idea this is not something I do often. I have found from the several tests I’ve taken that there are many parts that describe me very well. In the...

A New Year and a New Word

A New Year and a New Word

It's one word I tell myself. Surely it won't be that hard. I've climbed to the top of a volcano. One word is no big deal, right?? For those of you that choose a word for the year or the word chooses you, have you ever contemplated these thoughts? Do you believe that...

Persevere into the New Year ~ 2020 is Here

As the last few days of 2019 slip away, I am suddenly reminded of the new decade that is upon us. Ten years quickly flash in my mind and a fresh start comes into view. Hope rises and the great unknown stands ready to reveal itself during this new decade. I'm the girl...

Advent Week Four ~ Sacred Expectancy

Advent Week Four ~ Sacred Expectancy

For those of you who are still on the journey toward a sacred pause, I appreciate you. I pray you are feeling a sense of slower rhythms as you turn the corner into Christmas week. Each breath in is your invitation to call upon the One who wants to save you from...

Advent Week Three ~ Sacred Heart Work

Today we begin the third week of Advent. Taking time to pause in this busy season is never easy, but giving yourself the gift of Jesus is worth it. I love having you on this sacred journey with me. God’s invitation to pause, be still, listen, and wait well for the...

Advent Week Two ~ Sacred Intentionality

Advent Week Two ~ Sacred Intentionality

We are entering Week Two of Advent. Thank you for coming back and giving yourself the gift of a sacred pause. Last week, we worked on slowing down to capture stillness in our busy days. It was a time of sitting in the quiet and letting God join us in that space. There...

Advent Week One – Sacred Stillness

You are entering the first week of Advent. Already your breath is uneven and scattered as your to-do list for the holidays looms large. Your heart is racing and you cannot even imagine making it through four more weeks at the pace you are going.  As you draw in...

Prepare Ye the Way

Prepare Ye the Way

I wrote this post several years ago for God-Sized Dreams. The words still speak truth and remind me of the approaching holiday season. I love the idea of preparing not only my home but my heart and soul also. Join me as we dive into this idea of "preparing the way"...

Remnant-Keeper

Remnant-Keeper

The same One who counts your tears holds the pieces of your life tenderly as they are falling apart. You run haphazardly to pick up the scattered remnants but find your Father has already gathered them into His arms. You are loved and cherished by the Remnant-Keeper...

Kindred Spirits

Kindred Spirits

It started with a book. A gathering of four friends. A short drive and a walk along the beach where a lone mailbox marked "Kindred Spirit" was ready to capture our stories. Snippets of conversation floated on the ocean breeze and hidden desires filled each heart. The...

The Middle of Renewal
