If I could do it all over again…

This has been in my drafts forever because I didn’t know how to articulate all of my thoughts. But here it goes: Have you ever TOLD someone the First Vision?  I don’t mean TAUGHT someone. Teaching it is a whole other matter. I mean just sat down and factually said what occurred? Yes? No? Well,…

How COVID Helped Me Reset.

It’s been a long time since I’ve written. I love to write – but the entire year of 2020 has really left me speechless. I didn’t know what to think or how to think with the pandemic, masks, and riots staring me down at every turn. So I stopped trying to make sense of it…

Those Kinds of People

I love people. I LOVE people!!! Good people. Kind people. The ones who smile at you as you walk down the aisle of a grocery store, or the ones who open the door for you on the way into class. The ones who call and text you out of the blue just see how you’re…

The next RIGHT thing

A few days ago, I went and saw Frozen II. Don’t worry, I’ll be careful not to include any spoilers. But I walked out of that theater amazed. I loved it. Not because it was fun and upbeat and funny at all the right moments – which it was. I loved it because of one…

I unfollowed you.

I unfollowed you. But it’s not what you think. Let me explain. I didn’t unfollow you because I dislike you or I’m uninterested in your life. I didn’t unfollow you because I’m trying to be mean or because maybe you don’t follow me back. That’s not why I unfollowed you. I do like you! I…

I’m Imperfect

I am by no means an extraordinary person. I don’t write my blog because I think I’m super inspirational. I don’t write my blog because I think I’m an incredible and powerful influencer. I’m not. I don’t. I write because I’m ordinary. I write because I’m imperfect. I write because others inspire me. It’s true….

She’s too happy…

“She’s too happy.” At various times in my life, I have heard people say this about me. They say it with disdain – as an insult. As if being happy was somehow distasteful. As if my happiness and energy was all a façade… all for show. Fake even. Here’s the thing. I LIKE to be…

Our Ride of Life

Something you should know about my husband, Grant, is that he is really big into CrossFit. He loves it. And while I need more convincing to go do the workouts, he used to coach it every day at 5:30 a.m. For those who don’t know, CrossFit is a workout, and that workout is all about…

People Throw Rocks at Things That Shine

Have you ever noticed how children love things that shine? Children seem to be drawn to those things because of their sparkle, shine, and light. Why is that? I think it’s because whatever is shining, causes wonder. A child, who is also full of light, is drawn towards something that is equally shiny and sparkly….

Choose to care. Choose Light!

I’m re-dedicating myself to LIGHT. Or in other words, I am re-dedicating myself to Jesus Christ. What I mean by that is… I’m going to care more. I’m going to care about the things my body and my mind intake. I’m going to care about the things I can control. I may not be able…
