So that last post was about being at a crossroads… having options in front of you and wondering which door to walk through.

But what about those seasons when you are driving along and WANTING options, looking … More Freeway Driving
A lot of my young adult life, I found myself seized with indecision, so desirous of God’s will, of what people described as His best., and yet so uncertain of where He was directing me, how to hear from Him, whether or not I was hearing from Him, that I just spun myself in circles … More Intersections

I fell hard and momentarily felt like I re-ruptured my achilles tendon… I was in the kind of pain that burns and tickles simultaneously; I was exhausted from days of planning and preparing wonderful things until 1:30 am; and my monthly visitor had arrived.

That 430 am wakeup was a wild one. I woke from a dream that I had a little girl rounding out our current family of boys where I reign as queen. Frankly, I LOVE having boys. I have an amazing dad and two brilliant brothers; I am an athlete and have coached for years; I … More Dreams and Visions
I have this dear friend who is lovely and organized and plans beautifully and loves well, and who has grown more than just about anyone I know in the past couple years in terms of authenticity and depth and truth-telling.
