When I was a little girl I thought that our family car was the only one really driven by people. I don’t know where the idea came from, but I thought that the other cars on the road were driven by robots. I remember sitting in the back of our red Camry riding down the road […]

On Being Stuck

Untitled design

I am a solid J on the Myers-Briggs Test, meaning I’m a planner. Sometimes I think God made me that way as a great cosmic joke because I am certain I’m the only one in my immediate family. When my parents last came to visit they told me they would arrive sometime between Friday-Tuesday and they […]

My Favorite Reads of 2015 So Far

Last year I accomplished a pretty lofty goal of reading 52 books in 52 weeks by reading 53 books in 2014. Since I was able to accomplish this, I thought that I might try again this year. I more than finished the goal (over achiever status) surely I could do this again! Not only that, but I upped […]

Learning from Abraham


Yesterday I was shared about my personal struggle seeing the point in prayer. Genesis 18:16:33 features Abraham pleading for Sodom and has resonated with me over the last couple of days. Abraham was not only willing to be pesky in asking the Lord to move, intervene or change course. Not only did Abraham’s seemingly fearless approach to asking […]

Pesky Prayers

This is my second post in the Write 31 Days series. While it’s only my second time posting, I promise I’ve written everyday- it’s just not always shareable. I hand-wrote most of today’s post yesterday, but rainy Saturday naps and college football distracted me from physically posting. Oops, sorry about that. — I have to […]

Write 31 Days


Every October Crystal Stein and Myquillyn Smith host a series called Write 31 Days where they challenge writers to do just that. To write everyday for the month of October. Without really thinking about it I signed up a few weeks ago. As the end of September loomed I grew more and more doubtful of my participation. Other participants had […]


It’s been a while since I last posted here and really since I last wrote at all. Life off the internet has been busy, full, stressful and good. Each academic year the end of the spring and start of summer feels like a whirlwind that catches you by surprise (even though you know it’s coming) […]

Not to be Desperate, but…

I’m a terrible sales person. I generally do not agree to host “parties” (you know what I mean) and I’m not a huge fan of attending them. However, I’m currently hosting, until Friday the 27th, a virtual Thirty-One Gifts party. After moving to South Carolina I was first introduced to Thirty-One gifts. I noticed wristlet wallets […]

The Fringe Hours


  Friday I mentioned a book that I recently read called The Fringe Hours: Making Time for you. This book written by Jessica Turner comes out tomorrow, February 17th. I had the opportunity to read the Fringe Hours as a part of the launch team and was surprised by just how much this book influenced […]

Fringe Friday

Valentine's Day

I recently finished a great new book called Fringe Hours by Jessica Turner. Fringe Hours helps women to learn how to manage their time so they are able to do the things they enjoy and care for themselves. It was in many ways truly life changing to me. I will be posting soon about the […]
