We don’t always realize how beautiful the tapestry of our life is turning out to be.  We get caught up in the busy of everyday life and fail to take note of the extraordinary way He weaves things together.  Friends, even when life doesn’t make sense or you are left wondering why God lays somethingContinue Reading

Just do the next thing ~ A God-sized Dreams Post

I love to dream.  I love to brainstorm.  I love to see the big picture. There is a downside to being the big picture girl.  The downside being those darn details. As a dreamer, the details can easily overwhelm and, at times, paralyze me.  And my enemy, the one that pounces on weakness, he knows it.Continue Reading

I have a {God-Sized} Dream

A few months ago, I hit send on an application to be a part of Holley Gerth’s God-Sized Dream Team. I didn’t expect to make it through and literally squealed when I was one of the 99 women chosen. The program has blessed my socks off over the past few weeks and we are just gettingContinue Reading

What We Can Learn from Tragedy

I have been quiet in this space. A week ago Friday, the landscape of our country changed.  Good versus evil collided in a way that none could have imagined and it has left us shaken, sad and questioning.

An Anecdote of Fear and Angels

When I realized that the only parking available was in a several story parking garage, I felt sick to my stomach.  Parking garages and I do not get along.  I feel like the top of any vehicle I am in is going to be shorn off or that the entire thing is going to collapseContinue Reading

When Worlds Collide

Many of my blogging friends (or should I say friends that blog?) are participating in 31 days of… the brain child of popular blogger, Nester Smith.  I had every intention of participating via In Be’Tween Moms, even had a cute little graphic made. But real life happened. My husband and I went on a 10Continue Reading

A reminder to Be Still

Life can rush by at a crazy pace, especially if we take our eyes off eternity. Lisa Chan, wife of one of my favorite authors, Frances Chan, has just released a short inspirational film aptly entitled, Be Still. Sometimes, when I allow myself to get caught up in the busyness of life- the Mom taxi,Continue Reading
