3 Reasons Why You Should Absolutely Step Out and Write

I stood outside the car so crazy scared. For years I had wanted to go to a writers conference. I’d researched them online, asked questions of others who had gone, always wanting and wishing I could do it.

When the Darkness of Depression Overwhelms

Have you ever sat down with someone for coffee and realized that not only are they beautiful inside and out, but they are filled up with so much life-wisdom that you just want to hear more?

The meaningful.  That’s where I want to live this December. The other morning I overheard my boys talking about their Christmas plans, sleepovers in each others rooms, peppermint bark that we’d be sharing with their teachers, family that will be arriving, the caramel rolls …it was filled with so much wonder and excitement, I just stood…

Three Reasons We Don't Share Our Story

If you’ve spent more than five minutes in church, you’ve probably heard that Jesus is a big fan of us going into all the world to tell the good news. To make disciples. To be His rep to those around us. To “share our faith”. Why is that so difficult to do? Why does it seem so…

On My 15th Wedding Anniversary: The Five Things I Know

Fifteen years ago today I peeked around the corner to catch a glimpse of him. After catching my breath, I held my brother’s arm and walked down the aisle to marry him. That day, I was never more sure of where I was suppose to be, right there with him at 6pm, with the sun…
