Moment of Truth Monday [in May]

  Hey there, friend! I’m glad you are here. In fact, I’ve grown to love Mondays with you. You see the table in that photo? That’s where I sit every time I draft a post, and that mug [or whichever is clean at the time] is always full of my favorite tea. Did you know…… Continue reading Moment of Truth Monday [in May]

Before my dreams of being a lawyer, I wanted to be a singer. I had all the heart and zero stage fright. Forget that my “stage” was in an empty church. As a child, those details were inconsequential. Desire trumped rational. [Spoiler alert: I did not become a performer or a lawyer, but they were…… Continue reading Moment of Truth Monday

Size has been a point of conversation my entire life. Mind you, it’s not a topic I’ve initiated or enjoyed. Mere dislike of a subject doesn’t keep it at bay, unfortunately. In elementary school, I was often “volun-told” to crawl under the bathroom stall and unlock the door. Not only does my current germaphobe self…… Continue reading Moment of Truth Monday

I’m a big fan of words. The #sowkind movement is [after all] rooted in my belief that words have the ability to influence stories, change seasons, and adjust perspectives. Words really matter, but words alone are not enough. Very often in my parenting-I have used a phrase that was as much for me as it…… Continue reading Moment of Truth Monday
