Discernment in the Night Seasons

Throughout my life, a deep aching lonliness has consistently been present for me.  It’s been a darkness that’s followed me in and out of homes and relationships.  Honestly, I can’t remember a long period of time where I didn’t feel it.  The relationships I…

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

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…

Life’s Storms

It’s surprising to find myself feeling called to write about faith, running, and love when ALL of those things are so messy for me right now. It’s a reminder of how God’s plan doesn’t usually make sense when you’re in the midst of something…

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…
