Adjusting Focus {Whole Together Family 2/31}

A few years ago, I cohosted a weekly series and linkup called Wholemama. We wrote once a week on a one word prompt and we wrote about how even as we have all these separate roles, each one informs and builds the other. We wrote about how our creative, spiritual, and mothering roles all interwound … Continue reading Adjusting Focus {Whole Together Family 2/31}

Idiosyncratic – Reality of Life and Goals (6)

This might be the kind of 31 days series that happens in 3 months. I'm sorry to say. But I'm also interested in the possibilities of considering the topic for longer. Because sometime no matter how much you want something or how hard you chase it, now just isn't the right time and maybe putting … Continue reading Idiosyncratic – Reality of Life and Goals (6)

Showing Up (Day 5)

This is the day where the struggle went down. I almost want to quit already. But it's only day 5 and I can't let myself because this is something I want.  I want to write.  It's important to me. It'd be easier to say it doesn't matter and let it go by the wayside of … Continue reading Showing Up (Day 5)

31 Days: Adaptable 

I've chosen a topic and posted every day for the last four Octobers. These yearly forays into writing more and topics hit the perfect sweet spot between requirement and creativity. Each year has been an adventure.  This year will be the first I've not chosen the topic weeks in advance and done some writing ahead … Continue reading 31 Days: Adaptable 

What I’m Into – 31days recommendations, Fall Squealing, and Books | October 2015

Fall! Spring is my favorite but fall is a close second. Fall is shorter in Idaho. Tends to go from hot, to a milf monthlong fall, to snow without much lingering. The cold, light wind and the crackling leaves always revive my humor. Not to mention the promise of pumpkin pie. Oh, and Fall running … Continue reading What I’m Into – 31days recommendations, Fall Squealing, and Books | October 2015

When calm means leaving things unfinished :: soul calm {31/31}

Sometimes I try too hard to do the things I've set out to do. And sometimes that drives me crazy and makes me miss the things in life I tend to skip putting on my to-do list. Or would rather not be there altogether. This last week has been filled to the brim somehow. With … Continue reading When calm means leaving things unfinished :: soul calm {31/31}

Turn Over :: soul calm {26/31}

During my sophomore year of college I went to a spiritual retreat sort of thing put on by Intervarsity. I was shocked by much of what we learned (I talked more about that here). Spiritual practices that have more base in mysticism - rather than playing to my staunch lutheranism accidentally steeped in a little calvinism - scared … Continue reading Turn Over :: soul calm {26/31}

Tranquilities :: soul calm {25/31}

"To Come Home to Yourself" By John O'Donohue "May all that is within you Be released. May your fears yield Their deepest tranquilities. May all that is unlived in you Blossom into a future Graced with love." Page 97, To Bless the Space Between Us: A Book of Blessings I am blogging everyday this October … Continue reading Tranquilities :: soul calm {25/31}
