“Get me, mama!” The pitter patter of sweet little feet has grown into the thundering stomps of a rambunctious six year old daring me and his daddy to try to catch him as he races down the long hall, around the kitchen island, and into the living room. Did I mention it’s usually accompanied by […]

“Maybe God is just showing me that I need to cling to what He’s shown me – what He’s called me to – and just OWN it. What if He’s just waiting on my obedience?” Even hearing the words come out of my mouth made me feel determined and anxious all at once. Sometimes the […]

I have a confession… I’m not perfect. I know, it’s probably super shocking, right? *insert eye roll emoji here* You see, I’ve always been somewhat of a perfectionist. The first time I really knew that label applied to me was in 4th or 5th grade, when we had to write our standard info at the […]

It was a humid, mid-summer day in the South. I can remember it like it was yesterday and not 30-ish years ago: I was maybe about 8 or 9 years old and I remember standing on the high dive at the local public pool. I had watched other kids jump – seemingly fearlessly – off […]

As my girl, Lara Casey, says, “There isn’t anything magical about January 1st.” And I believe it. I do. But… There is something a little wild about going to bed in one year and waking up in a new one. It’s like a boost of momentum and determination without even trying…just waking up and thinking, […]

Cultivating Community in 2020

Ain’t no time like summertime to tackle some good books! In fact, I’m willing to bet you’ve got at least one or two just sitting on your bookshelf, nightstand, coffee table, or in your Amazon cart just waiting for you to remember they’re there. I’ve confessed it before and I’ll do it again: I’m a […]

10 Reads For An Intentional Summer

I’ve never considered myself to be very smart when it comes to theology or theological concepts. It takes me a little while to grasp the deeper teachings and concepts – especially when it’s taught or presented in a way that’s straight-forward, practical, and bland. However, when the same information is presented as a story, now […]

Easter Changes Everything

Seriously, though. If it’s possible, the title of this post is true…and I’m not too embarrassed about it. Well, maybe a little…but that’s okay.   If you read my previous post, you know that my husband and I recently celebrated 10 years of marriage. I keep telling him it’s been the best 10 years of […]

Disney Is My Love Language

A whole, entire decade has passed since we said “I do.” Did you hear that? A decade! Don’t get me wrong, I know there are far more couples who have celebrated greater anniversary milestones than us, but 10 years is most certainly something to celebrate! It seems so crazy that we’ve been married for ten whole […]
