Life balance is not a calendar or time issue. Life balance is a heart issue.
One of the things I love about reading is being able to share the story, or the information, with others. I’ve always loved being able to talk with others about what I’m reading. As I’ve recently been working with a ministry coach to figure out some “what’s next” in my life and vocation, one ofContinue reading “Book Review: Emotionally Healthy Spirituality”
Recently, I spent a couple of days at The Quiet Place, NC. The first afternoon I was there, I experienced, then wrote, what is below: As I sat on the rock, overlooking the waterfall, I felt like I could finally breathe. I felt that driving here. Like I could breathe again. Each time I roundedContinue reading “Breathe”
To the Church I love, that welcomed me, that formed me, that supported me, that affirms me. To the Church that again and again is “Jesus with skin on” for me: I write with tears in my eyes as I think upon all the ways you have loved me. You took me in when IContinue reading “Dear Church”

I see her climbing on everything. She still does that. We called her monkey when she was little.Continue reading “When Did She Grow Up?”
Nine years ago today I became a mommy for the first time. I told Professor that this morning. His response? “And yeah, if I hadn’t been born, you wouldn’t be a mom to this large crazy family either.” He’s right. That’s why he’s Professor. This kid knows stuff about stuff that I frankly don’t knowContinue reading “My 9-year-old Professor”
Today is Gorilla’s birthday. I officially have a 2-year-old boy in the house. His favorite word right now is “nooooo.” I wish I knew how to put an audio clip of him saying it, as it’s pretty funny. He does it mostly to be silly. We celebrated his birthday with cake, ice cream and gifts whileContinue reading “Happy Birthday Gorilla!”
