Moment of Truth Monday

I seriously enjoy flowers. I love the aroma they give, aesthetic beauty they offer, and the way they can change the mood of a room. I appreciate the end product of the tenacity and efficiency of gardeners. I do NOT have a green thumb, nor do I full understand what that requires. Though, I have single-handedly…… Continue reading Moment of Truth Monday

Moment of Truth Monday

I used to dream of being a singer. It started in the early days of my dad’s song leading at church. He would go practice and my sisters and I would assume the stage with our microphone stands.

With fingers crossed, eyes closed, and an inaudible plea {please let it be me, God},…… Continue reading Crossing My Fingers Taught Me This

The little excerpts of truth, really just honest expressions from my little heart, seem to resonate with my friends. For that reason, I thought maybe I’d…… Continue reading Moment of Truth Monday

One Decision Changed my Friendships

A couple of years ago I made a decision that had an impact I could NOT have imagined. I was scrolling, actually probably more like trolling, through social media one morning when I saw a tweet that caught my eye. It invited readers to apply for a book launch team. My book-loving self wanted to…… Continue reading One Decision Changed my Friendships

The Truth About Triggers

Trigger warning: __________________. It seems like every other post I read has a ‘trigger’ warning. These warnings, while intended to be a nod toward consideration {and I appreciate that kindness}, give me permission to scroll on when I may need to sit with big emotions. The fact of the matter is, we were created to experience deep feelings. That’s…… Continue reading The Truth About Triggers
