Loyal {Five Minute Friday}

Part of living life creatively means jumping in with two feet and being loyal to your vision of what is possible. It is easy to get discouraged with your progress or lack, with your ability to forge ahead or tendency to pause longer than you'd like, or anything else where your confidence gets a nudge … Continue reading Loyal {Five Minute Friday}

Whole-list-ical (3.20.17)

Lately I've been feeling a touch resentful of life in general and how things never quite resolve. Somehow I'm only newly learning that even though life does tend to 'work out' it usuallydoesn't  happen before the next thing gets confangled and convoluted. There's nearly always something that needs to get fixed before you think life … Continue reading Whole-list-ical (3.20.17)

And we continue on. {wholemama faith}

Where is the line that draws between the middle of what was and what is? The line that marks the turning of a head to glance behind or the focusing of the eyes on things at hand? How do we keep ourselves in careful love of present and not fall to always wondering what might have been … Continue reading And we continue on. {wholemama faith}

It's a topic I've had to feel out over the course of this year. … Continue reading Hopefully Churching – {Guest Post at Circling the Story}

Hope // Five Minute Friday

I greet the unexpected occasions and downturns in life with hope more easily than my day to day.  My daily ends in a rush of exhuastion and satisfaction in finally being able to go to bed or to just enjoy a few minutes alone in peace.  Bedtime is more of a moment to dwell in … Continue reading Hope // Five Minute Friday

Brave and Bold. 

"Bravery comes from God-given, God-sized faith." - Jennie Allen, on Instagram today.  Sometimes I feel like I hold back only because I'm afraid of what will happen if I don't. Other times I feel like I hold back because I do not know the steps to take to get to where I'm meant to be after … Continue reading Brave and Bold.
