A Clarification (to my previous post)

I want to clear things up just a bit, though I don’t know if my efforts will do much good. Nevertheless, it is being said of me that in a recent blog post of mine I am “bashing working moms. ” However, I want to make it known that it certainly wasn’t my intent to […]

What Defines a Person . . .

. . . thank the Lord it doesn’t have to be the past. I was in my last year at bible college, on a good path toward a great future, in love with a guy I’d met over the summer who now lived hours away, preparing for a vocation in full-time ministry.  I was ready […]

Little Purple Flower Shop Job

I’ve taken a little part-time job at the local flower shop.  I know, I know; I’m a SAHM, not a working mom. So what.  Things change.  I knew at some point they would, I just never thought flower arranging  would be involved.

My Top 10 + 1

Throughout my life, I’ve taken note of some pretty incredible principles and have noted some great sayings that put things into perspective when I’ve needed perspective, given me inspiration when I’ve been in a rut, or have been a boon to my attitude when I’ve been feeling schlumpy.  Whatever the case might be, I keep […]

Blog Envy? Nah . . .

>Sometimes I peruse other blog sites and think how cool the authors and creators must be. Their blogs are awesome, have really great design, interesting photos, and the writing is outstanding. Their blogs make me want to invite them over and be friends. Then I come back to mine and try to compete. But that’s […]

>I can’t believe this is my first post of the year for a couple of reasons: 1. It’s already a week and a half into the year and I’ve failed to post anything until now. 2. This is only because I feel I need to get something out there. 3. I’m still feeling quite uninspired. […]

A Past Prayer

>Nearly 8 years ago, I was sitting on the floor at the chapel altar, tears streaming down my face, heart wide open before God. I felt Him leading me out of myself and out of my comfort zone, asking me to risk it big for Him. I was saying yes . . . on one […]

Present Focus

>I was talking to a friend of mine the other day that used the term “focus” instead of “resolution” in reference to new year, new goals. I like that; so I borrow the term from her. Over the past couple of months I have been trying to be more present in my own life. I […]

Outliers

> I recently finished reading Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell; a wonderful read! As always, I was fascinated by the hidden aspects of long-held stereotypes or the mistaken “truths” we hold dear. Gladwell dissects these ideas in such an interesting fashion that it made me not want to stop reading. Here are a couple of things […]
