A month full of thankfulness?

It has been a month since I have sat back and poured into this blog. Actually, it's been a month since I've truly taken time to reflect on all that has been going on for our family. We're in a season of chaos... Actually, I feel like mine and Dustin's relationship has always included chaos,... Continue Reading →

The blessing of true fellowship

In efforts to be transparent, I'm going to share something with you, my friends. I have started this blog post again and again, but I always become a little overwhelmed (or a lot overwhelmed) and I quit. Like, what did I do to deserve such a supportive and loving group to do life with?  ... Continue Reading →

Take the journey

We let fear talk us out of doing crazy, exciting things. Sometimes, we even let fear talk us out of doing the small, little things. I want to own my own business. Psh..that's not a real job. I'm going to take control of my health. Yeah, but why? You're not intelligent enough to do so.... Continue Reading →

I didn't put much thought to the image I portrayed throughout the day, I acted on my emotions. But since then, I've felt quite... Continue Reading →

Don’t be afraid to ask for help

I'll admit to having a certain level of pride in my independence. I enjoy the confidence that comes from knowing I can accomplish something on my own. But like my favorite podcast, Journeywomen, likes to remind me — we don't live our lives in a solitary bubble. Our stories are rich with all kinds of... Continue Reading →

Some thoughts 17 years later…

I wish I had something profound to say on this Tuesday evening, but in all reality I don’t.   I was young when 9/11 happened. I didn’t understand it then, and I don’t understand it now. I think we all sometimes question why God would let bad things happen. And that doesn’t just go for... Continue Reading →
