So there is something to be said for a stress free start back to school. I'm not sure what that saying would be, but I can only imagine it to be nice things & angels singing. We can literally plan, prep & organize every. single. detail. but ultimately, it's what works best for the whole family unit.… Continue reading Starting off the school year right…
You know that old George Straight song, "She Let Herself Go"? There is something to be said for it. Far too often we have put restrictions, guidelines, and rules on our life - of what society accepts as normal. It's ridged, uncomfortable and I really don't know anyone that can actually adhere to it.… Continue reading She let herself go…
So if you read my last post, you're familiar with the idea of "bloom where you're planted", which was recommended to me by my personal & business mentor. Specifically, to be an encourager. This isn't something that comes to me naturally. Like at all. And because of that, I'll be sharing things periodically that have… Continue reading The “L” Word
Somehow, an entire month has passed since my last blog post. Believe me, I've thought about it. I've had about a million different ideas of things to write about. But I've also spent 347 hours in the garden, put up at least 112 ears of corn, 28 cans of green beans, and I've lost track… Continue reading Bloom Where You’re Planted

Have you ever prayed ever-so-diligently that the Lord would reveal your purpose & then waited (and waited) for what seemed like an eternity, only to not hear what you thought… Continue reading Purpose In Life
I know. I totally just threw you with that title, right? I am mind blown. Like literally trying to form the words that are a jumbled up thought process in my mind. I. Can't. Even. right now. Like, I get it. But, I don't, because the human heart is so ugly. Let's just… Continue reading Dying to the EGO & Self-Forgetfulness
I absolutely, positively love this time of year. I love all the things that bloom. The sunshine & warm air. All the things that are born, all the things that sprout, and pretty much all the things that make me sneeze. There is something about this time of year. A time of new birth, renewal,… Continue reading All the things that bloom
When did we stop dreaming? Why? Were you a child? Or maybe entering adulthood? But why? Why did you fall to the harshness of reality? As a kid, I had dreams of becoming a lawyer (too many Perry Mason episodes, I guess), but then reality, even in early childhood discouraged me from… Continue reading When did we stop dreaming?
So I was sitting in bed the other night, and had the TV on (truth be told I don't watch it a lot), and heard a commercial for a weight loss program, and the question asked in it was "How do you show up to life each day?" (or some version of that) For… Continue reading How Do You Show Up to Life Each Day?
