Faith Over Fear!

July 12, 2018

Hello friends! Today I’m excited to introduce you to my amazing writer and speaker friend Jennifer Goebbel. She is a mama of three girls and one boy, married for 19+ years, and has a God-given gift to teach (I love listening to her speak and marvel as she brings the Bible to life in new ways) . She is guest posting today on the blog, […]

Grace For The Holiday Griever (Part 1 of 3)

November 17, 2017

How do you navigate when grief rears its ugly head and threatens to steal your holiday cheer? If you’re feeling the sting of grief this holiday season, this three-part series “grace for the holiday griever” is for you. Part 1: Grace & Space When grief pounced its way into our lives five years ago, I had no idea how suffocating and all consuming it would […]

Unlocking A New Level of Strength

September 29, 2017

“Why do you have a weird rock in your drawer?” my eleven year old daughter Sydney asked. Oh, the mysterious rock. I’ve been holding onto that rock for several years now. This rock birthed itself at a writing and speaking conference called She Speaks. At the end of the last session, they asked us to still our spirit and listen for one word from God […]

Finding Your Unique Purpose

September 8, 2017

The woman directly in front of me in aerobics class collapsed to the ground. I stood motionless in my white Reebok high tops shocked and conflicted – wishing I could help but knowing I’d do more harm than good. Another woman in our class moved with command towards the woman on the floor. She began giving CPR. If only I’d paid more attention in the […]

Enough With the Fear Factor

July 1, 2017

“The cave you fear to enter holds the treasures you seek.”     — Joseph Campbell Fear can hold us back from some of the most exhilarating joy we’ll ever experience.  Fear whispers lies at us: “You can’t do that.” “Who do you think you are?” “Don’t even bother.  You’ll just fail.” Like a bully at the playground, fear pounces just as we get the […]

Thankfulness

March 8, 2016

My head felt like a fifty pound weight balancing precariously on a toothpick.  At any moment, it might snap.  It hurt to ride in a car.  It hurt to sit in a chair.  It hurt to turn my head from side to side. My husband Doug affectionately referred to me as his “china doll”.  Fragile.  Handle with care. The MRI would reveal a bulging disc in the neck.  Ouch.  […]

Give and Take

February 15, 2016

We are good for each other and to each other.  A friend of mine recently texted me this message.  We both lost our sons, we both have dealt with health related issues affecting our families for years, and we both have a tendency in friendships to default to giving rather than receiving. Giving comes naturally to me.  Whether it’s encouraging a friend, mentoring someone in […]

Magically Beautiful

November 20, 2015

“Has anyone ever said you look like Linda Carter with your glasses on?” Uh … no.  But my co-worker had unknowingly paid me the biggest compliment.  My mind flashed back to one of my favorite childhood memories.  Linda Carter played my childhood hero … Wonder Woman. She is the ultimate woman.  Binding up criminals with her golden rope.  Protecting and saving innocent people with her […]

Contagious

August 30, 2015

Laptop removed?  Check.  Shoes off?  Check.  Bag of liquids in bin?  Check. It’s an airport security ritual.  I got everything into the grey bins, hoisted my carry-on bag onto the belt at the security checkpoint and walked through the sensor without anything going off.  Whew. “Ma’am, I need to inspect your bag”. Oh no.  I could tell this bag inspector meant business as she rifled […]

Struggling to Fly

August 9, 2015

In the midst of our grief when Jenson passed away, something new started showing up constantly.  Butterflies.  I’d never really paid much attention to butterflies before the rainstorm of crushing grief saturated our life.  But they started to become a theme even a mom knee deep in grief couldn’t ignore. One day as I was working through the grief with my counselor Mary, I shared with […]
