You are Lovely, a free printable

This past weekend I was suppose to teach a workshop on how to identify and move past lies that come into your life after trauma. Yup, big topic huh? Well……. Then there was this little thing called Hurricane Flo and the event was moved to October (and you can still get tickets for it here). […]

World Suicide Prevention Day.

Today is world suicide prevention day. There are so many thoughts that I just haven’t been able to get out about today. I think about the first time I thought about ending my life. I was nine years old sitting in a tree. I think about how many times I’ve survived my attempts, those I […]

Unequipped. Thoughts on being called

He doesn’t call the equipped. He equips the called. How many times have you heard those simple sentences? I know in my life, a ton.

Full Force

The other day a friend told me that she loved how I went after things full force. Something about the way I dove straight into new things was just so exciting. It blindsided me. Really, it  did. For years I was told how I didn’t do anything well, tried to take on too much, or […]

Quiet time confessions

Some of my favorite moments are curling up in a big chair in the early mornings with a hot cup of coffee, my bible and journal. In those moments words pour out of my heart and head on to the pages. Writing through verses, prayers and breaking through what God is saying to me has […]

Done

  I wash most of my laundry at least twice, not out of an ocd, but out of a deep need for clean clothes. You would think, washing them once would be fine. But, when you wash a load of laundry and its forgotten for days, running it over and over is vital. It quickly […]

Space

              A while ago I walked into the cosmetology school where my sister teaches  ready to go out all. By all out I mean, purple. After hours and hours of flipping through pinterest, tucked between what to do with used essential oil bottles and one pot meals there was […]

An Epiphany

I love words. I believe how you say something is important. Digging for deeper meanings, pairing words together, and the verbiage that is used are all exciting for me. It is an odd love, but it’s mine. A friend and I were texting about blog names a while ago. I was stuck and just throwing […]
