Nothing…really

       I have had an epiphany as of late.  I am completely clueless and powerless to run my life–marriage, ministry, fertility, relationships, leadership, etc.  You may be saying, “duh!”  However, do not all of us have this false sense of control from time to time?  We think we have it covered…oh yeah, I have doneContinue reading “Nothing…really”

Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen

So, I have a confession. When I became a teenager in the late 80s it was en vogue to carry a photo album in your purse. Insecure 13 and 14 year old that I was, one could not tell.

Spring comes in it’s purposed time…

This year marks the first year I can remember in a long time where people are speaking their weariness of winter everyday.

It’s like people get stupid when they walkContinue reading “How the corner was turned…”

Letting go…

This has been a particularly emotional week for me. It started last week with the preparations for my niece, Brittany’s wedding (where in the process, I began taking double the amount of hormones for infertility). The wedding was wonderful, even though, it was an adventure with rain and relocation. Instead of outside in the rainContinue reading “Letting go…”

This past week I have been in Chicago with Greg and Rick and Teresa Dunn for the Gospel Coalition conference, and then I trecked over to Memphis for Tiffany and Chris Leuck’s wedding. It has been a FULL week, but it has been a blessing. As I looked out at my backyard this morning, IContinue reading “blooming fruit”
