What If…We Didn’t Fear Change?

Posted on

I wrote this blog post about a month ago…and, well, March 15th is the day after the day after tomorrow. Today a friend posted a motivational word photo which read, “Don’t be Afraid of Change.”  Umm, we are on the precipice of change, like uber, major, big time, anything goes type of change, and I, for […]

What If…God isn’t Santa Claus?

Posted on

When I was in elementary school I went to the mall with my friend and her mom and we ended up in a shoe store where I found the shoes of my 3rd grade dreams. Since I faithfully did my chores around the house, I tucked my hard earned cash into my rainbow velcro wallet and […]

Guest Post: Thankfulness

Posted on

Thankfulness entails honesty.  Why pretend when God knows the deepest parts of our hearts?  The moment I realized there was no such thing as a secret between me and God, my awe of Him increased, along with my love for Him.  I breathed in at that moment the truth that God loves me, as is, […]

Time is my love language. For whatever reason, time is a really big deal to me.  How I use it or the people it is filled with, it’s a big deal because there is only so much of it and deep in my heart I desire to be a good steward of this gift called […]

God never “comes and goes.”  He is always.  He […]

If You Ask About a Muffin…

Posted on

A couple of weeks ago I was looking in the display at a restaurant at what looked like a scrumptious gluten free blueberry muffin.  Of course I knew I wasn’t going to buy it, one because it’s still laden with sugar whether it’s gluten free or not, and two, because like most baked goods, it […]

Little BIG Feet

Posted on

If you don’t know how much I love feet, scroll down to the bottom of this page…I’ll wait… Okay.  So, let me clarify, because by “love feet” I want to make sure it’s clear which ones I mean: NOT stinky, sweaty, hairy, scaly ones BUT YES to: chewy, teeny, tiny, pink, plump, yummy ones But […]
