Embracing Brokenness

The people who inspire me most are the ones brave enough to share their stories.  We’ve all got a story, but most of us are too afraid to show our true selves and share all we’ve been through.  I believe in using discernment to…

Journeying Through Transitions

  I’ve been in a season of transition… out of routine, finding new normals, lots of change. This doesn’t come easily to a scheduled girl like myself, but it takes change to be challenged. I was blessed with being able to buy a home…

Clothe Yourself in Compassion

This weekend, I took my daughter shopping.  My sweet and sassy 9 year old, was desperately seeking a pair of overalls.  The 90s are back in full effect!  (Scrunchies – I can’t even!) So, we grabbed a few things and headed to the dressing…

Maybe it’s just me, but when I decide to dig into something, I want it to be a smooth upward trajectory toward successfully meeting my end goal. I’m not a fan of the bumps along the way… things throwing me off course… old patterns…

Run The Road You’re Called To Travel: Detours Ahead

A week ago, I was running my Saturday long run (which is a pretty short run these days) when I saw notices for the Austin Marathon taking place the next day. Yellow diamond-shaped signs saying DETOUR AHEAD were all along Congress Ave., where the…

Arrested in Affliction…

Recently at church, our pastor was talking about the afflictions we all have. Addictions. Illness. Compulsions. Abuse. Shame. Secrets. The burdens we carry. He has such a beautiful, genuine way of speaking and you could see visible raw reactions among us. I looked around…
