• What’s on YOUR list?

    January 29, 2020 by

    I don’t know about you, but I am ALWAYS busy! ALWAYS! And it can be really tempting to just get into a groove and go with the flow. We wake up one day and realize a big portion of our lives has passed us by and we have no idea how we got to where… Read more

  • January 22, 2020 by

        I know what it feels like to try an outrun your own thoughts. Your own guilt and shame. It feels hopeless. And it makes us desperate. Desperate for anything that will silence the noise or at the least… something that’s louder than the noise. We shut our eyes tight in the dark when… Read more

    Broken. ⁠⠀Broken homes filled with broken people with broken hearts by broken dreams.⁠⠀We don’t need to look far to see find them. Those broken people. And so very often, they look a lot like everyone else. They look a lot like us.⁠⠀Those broken homes, and hearts and dreams… from the outside we’d never pick those… Read more

  • Bittersweet Disappointment

    December 9, 2019 by

    It’s been a while since I’ve been here. Here, with my hands poised over a keyboard with so many words pushing to get out that I’m not sure if my fingers will keep up. And it’s funny (and not in the HA-HA way) that the words come on the tail of a draining day. William… Read more

  • Brave Grief

    October 31, 2019 by

    Grief. We’ve all felt it. And no matter what the reason, it can be tempting to believe that this is the worst we’ll ever feel. Yesterday was my oldest son’s 14th birthday. And while I was so happy and thankful to be celebrating this boy who struggled so much in his first few days of… Read more

  • Overflow

    October 17, 2019 by

    Rest is good. And there’s never a bad time to open up God’s Word and dig in. But I have a tendency to rest too much and a habit of always reading and very seldom ever doing. I have two devotional books that I use during the day. One for home and one for work.… Read more

  • Finding Comfort to Give Comfort

    October 16, 2019 by

    I don’t know about you but comfort isn’t exactly how I’d describe some of my most difficult times. To be honest- it was during those times that I felt the farthest from God. I didn’t feel comforted. I felt abandoned. And that perceived abandonment caused me to rebel and lash out at God in ways… Read more

  • Responsibly Free

    October 3, 2019 by

    I wonder how many of us would connect responsibilities with freedom. I have a responsibility to pay my bills, go to work, feed my family. While there are many other smaller responsibilities, those three alone take up a huge portion of my time. And that doesn’t always leave behind the feeling of freedom. And that… Read more

  • Deep Waters

    September 29, 2019 by

    We’ve all been there. Some more than others. Those times when life seems like a constant struggle to keep our head above water. And the more we fight the current and waves the more tempting it gets to just give up and sink. We look around and it seems like everyone else has made it… Read more

  • How to Keep Loving at the End of Your Rope.

    September 26, 2019 by

    I have a confession. For the past three days I’ve been binge watching Netflix. The Gilmore Girls have been my quiet escape from any and everything. I haven’t written anything. I’ve barely prayed. I’ve done the bare minimum with my devotional. I’ve stayed up late and woke up late. And I’ve let the rules of… Read more

  • You Are Worth It

    September 16, 2019 by

    Worthy. That’s a pretty hefty word. And we define it in so many different ways. We demand that we’re worth it with our mouths and yet live the complete opposite in our actions. We do this because what we view as worthy changes with our circumstances… which in this life can be often. In my… Read more

  • Gotta Have Grace

    September 14, 2019 by

    Grace. We hear it, preach it, love it. But sometimes it’s hard to show it. And even harder to live it. I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how God uses our own broken stories to heal others. And that in the telling we often find our own healing. But I’ve also been thinking about… Read more

  • The Good Soil of Loving Yourself

    September 7, 2019 by

    “The seed cast on good earth is the person who hears and takes in the News, and then produces a harvest beyond his wildest dreams.” Matthew 13: 23 If you read the Parable of The Sower in full, you’ll hear about four different types of people. Three out of the four don’t exactly inspire. But… Read more

  • The REAL Truth About Loving Yourself

    September 4, 2019 by

    As I was scrolling through Pinterest the other day I came across a quote. It caught my attention because it was under the category of loving oneself. It read: When you start seeing your worth, you’ll find it harder to stay around people who don’t. I jotted down the words and kept scrolling only to… Read more

  • Loving Yourself By Yourself

    August 28, 2019 by

    Alone. Solo. Single. Solitary. Stag. Those words don’t exactly bring to mind joy or fulfilment, do they? Sure the idea of a nice quiet day spent doing only want you want sounds nice but if you’re like me- as soon as the noise dies down the walls close in. We long for a time with… Read more

  • Love Yourself. Use Your Talents.

    August 26, 2019 by

    It makes your chest hurt. Your stomach flop. And your palms sweat.
    Fear. The ugliest four-letter word you’ll ever hear.

  • Loving Yourself Means Letting Go

    August 23, 2019 by

    I get it. I really do. You’ve been so focused for so long on making it work that letting go now just feels like quitting. You know the it I’m talking about. The very first thing you thought of when you read the title to this post. And I know exactly what happened when the… Read more

  • The GO{LOVE}YOURSELF Purpose

    August 17, 2019 by

    GO{LOVE}YOURSELF was birthed out of the almost desperate desire to reach out and take the hands of the millions of women who struggle every day with depression, anxiety, fear and regret. Maybe you’re one of those women. Over and over again, you let those struggles keep you from making the best choices for your life.… Read more

  • God is Moving.

    March 25, 2020 by

    “If they had been thinking of that land from which they had gone out, they would have had opportunity to return. But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one. Therefore, God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared for them a city” Hebrews 11:… Read more
