“Delayed obedience is disobedience.” I can hear the words replay just as clearly as if they were spoken a moment ago and not well over 15 years prior to me writing this. It was one of those moments that seems to etch itself into your very being, even without you fully understanding its importance and […]

“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 […]

Hey there, friend! It’s been a while since I popped in on the blog. I’ve been so busy with #allthethings that quite honestly, it’s just taken a back seat. I will say, though, I’m SO happy to be back! Kinda like when you haven’t seen your best friend in what feels like forever and you’re […]

My daddy taught me early that when you meet someone new, you give ’em a firm handshake and look ’em in the eye. I still do that today. However, I am a southern girl through and through and if you’re not a hugger, you better be on your toes ’cause that’s how we roll down […]
