IT COUNTS!

One week ago, I made a commitment to myself to post a blog every single day for 730 days. I’ll write a post later on why I chose two years and all the other things you want to know but here’s how I almost failed today. It’s 11:08pm CST and I am just now writingContinue reading “IT COUNTS!”

What does love require of you?

One of the most defining moments of my life began to unfold two years ago today. I laid in a dark room on the third floor of the house I was living at in complete isolation and depression for a few weeks. I had a back brace on from an auto accident I had aContinue reading “What does love require of you?”

Build your faith on the solid rock of God’s truths, not on the sand of your own.

You are likely familiar with this story about Abram and Sarai in Genesis. God promised him a son. And not just a son, but he promised him to be the father of many nations. His descendants would outnumber the stars, and would be a holy people who loved and served the Lord all of theirContinue reading “Build your faith on the solid rock of God’s truths, not on the sand of your own.”

Your season of disappointment is actually an appointment with Holy Spirit.

In 2018, I joined (and committed to) Crossfit. I also met my physical therapist, who would not only help me overcome chronic knee pain and get back to doing all the things I love, but also later became my coach. I also met my nutritionist, who temporarily wrecked my whole life and taught me toContinue reading “Your season of disappointment is actually an appointment with Holy Spirit.”

No matter what role you play in the life of your church, it matters.

Chances are, you’re headed to church at some point today. For some of you, you’ll stand on a stage and lead worship or preach the message. Others of you might hold a baby, play games with a group of preschoolers or make a kid with special needs feel like a million bucks by meeting himContinue reading “No matter what role you play in the life of your church, it matters.”

No goal is too big for the confidence God created you to have.

It’s a terrible time to talk about goals. It’s Saturday. It’s July. It’s the 6th day of the month. Today is the kind of day many of us are believing the lie we already failed and we should either give up or wait for Monday, August 1 or January to start attacking the thing weContinue reading “No goal is too big for the confidence God created you to have.”

Say yes one more time.

A few months back, I shared pieces of my story with fatherlessness (Abandoned and adopted. Twice. and Abuse lies.). I saved the hardest piece for today. It’s been five years since Bucky fell out of the sky. I spent my entire childhood begging God to be a daddy’s girl. When I was a little girl,Continue reading “Say yes one more time.”

Stop being busy

One of the saddest things I hear is when I ask people how life is and their response is, “busy.” “Busy” implies they are running from thing to thing, commitment to commitment, and not enjoying it. They always have that look on their face and that tone in their voice. That feeling like it’s justContinue reading “Stop being busy”

Discovering the heart of a champion: A look into my PT journey

“She will develop arthritis at a young age.” “Let’s stay away from lifting weights. Your body just can’t handle it.” “You will never be a recreational runner again.” “If you don’t have this surgery, you will end up in a wheelchair in your 30s.” These are the things I heard over and over again throughoutContinue reading “Discovering the heart of a champion: A look into my PT journey”

Abuse Lies.

Last week, I posted a piece of my story about my struggle with feeling worthy after my biological and adoptive fathers both abandoned me. Today, I want to share more of that story. The pain and my struggle with feeling a father’s love didn’t end at my mom’s divorce in 1997. In fact, it gotContinue reading “Abuse Lies.”
