YES—>It is ALMOST Time!

I have spent the better part of the last nine months birthing something to share with you! No, this is not a twisted attempt at telling you I am expecting, but after the year we just had, that would seem like the worst kind of choose your own adventure ending. Several years ago, I dedicated…… Continue reading YES—>It is ALMOST Time!

Wisdom in the Weeds: Exercise Integrity

My relationship with exercise has always been fickle. The treadmill might be a top priority for 2 days, but then I keep my distance for 2 weeks. I wish I was exaggerating. I assure you, I am not.

Wednesday Wisdom: Let it Unfold

Her words hung in the air between us and lingered in my mind long after the appointment ended. Not only had I never considered the practice, I was not even sure I knew how to proceed. Let it unfold.

Are you Eligible?

I don’t know about you, but I am quick to qualify and disqualify myself in many arenas. If I think I know more on a subject, I’m eligible to speak.

Faith Requires Movement

Yet at the same time many even among the leaders believed in him. But because of the Pharisees they would not confess their faith for fear they would be put out of the synagogue; for they loved praise from men more than praise from God.  John 12: 42-43 {NIV}   These verses are a gut punch…… Continue reading Faith Requires Movement

Broken, Leftover Pieces

I stared at the giant, broken Lego set and secretly hoped to find a way out of “repairing” it. Although I didn’t have a hand in its original creation, I previously performed emergency surgery. With this particular robot, or machine, or {who knows what it is}–parts just seemed to consistently fall off! So, I did…… Continue reading Broken, Leftover Pieces
