Going All In and Finding Freedom

Going All In and Finding Freedom

If I’m honest with myself, and God knows I hate when I have to be, I know that I haven’t been fully committed to much in my life. I’m a girl who loves options — an escape plan, a new boss, even another lover to replace a current one if things don’t work out. At the first … Continue reading

Working (and Experimenting?) in Your Faith

Working (and Experimenting?) in Your Faith

Yesterday, I read a post from Life & Business Coach Kachelle Kelly that I literally chanted in order to get through my day. If you don’t follow her on Facebook or Twitter, please take the time to do so. She is the real deal, and a consistent blessing in her encouragement. God is no respecter … Continue reading

We miss our friends and our church dearly, and though we love our family with everything we have, we don’t always feel like we belong here. We’re still getting used … Continue reading

The Decision to Thrive

Sweetie Pies, what I have is good enough. What I lack is not presently needed. The only pressure to make everything perfect comes from me. Everyone else only expects my best, and they give me a little flexibility to have an off day or three. Doing something, anything within our purpose creates a document on society, and as … Continue reading

Shifting Gears

Sweetie Pies, I looked in the mirror this morning and saw every second of my 32 years staring back at me. Yesterday, my son went to our local college as part of a program to show students how much fun collegiate life is (he told me they even “graduated”), and I realized that the years are flying … Continue reading
