Maybe I’m stating the obvious to some, but I titled this post with words I need to remember often. You don’t have to do it all. When I get an idea, I feel the need to act. When I see a need, I feel compelled to fill it. When I think someone else should do...
The last couple of weeks have been H A R D. Situational pain spoke loud to my heart and soul for days on end. When the mind knows what the heart needs to remember, there’s a battle waged. The two aren’t in alignment and that right there is enough to keep...
God’s been repealing pride and revealing brokenness and it hurts like heck. I’ve raged. I’ve sobbed. I’ve let Him keep digging because the work He does is always good. When circumstances seem to happen to you, it’s easy to assume the other is the greatest offender. In...
Life feels unpredictable when the weathering of one season mingles with another. I’m not sure what to expect in a given day because, much like Texas winter, the morning starts chilly but by noon the air is humid and warm. My heart flip-flops and I’m not sure what to...
For the last few weeks my hubby has been asking me (repeatedly) to watch a cartoon movie with him. Y’all, this is not typical. We reserve family friendly shows for family time, but he’s been asking me to watch this one with him even when our kiddos weren’t around....
If you’re on social media at all you’ve no doubt heard of #thedress. Did you see it? Let me rephrase that. What did you see? That’s the question. I saw white & gold, almost exclusively. My husband saw black & blue, exclusively. That seemed to be...
Ever find yourself struggling through life’s challenges? Maybe you’re tired and weary. Maybe fears and doubts threaten your ability to live well as a Christian.
I believe God has more peace, joy, and freedom than many of us come to know. I want this for us.
I also believe God is bigger and better than any of us can ever know. I want us to see more of Him daily.
Here we’ll journey through areas of emotional health, soul care, and spiritual growth in order to cultivate a life-well lived and a soul well-nourished. Not a perfect life, but a life reliant on the One who is perfect.
While it may not be easy, it’s worth it.

Trying to get another person to think, act, or live the way you think they should will never draw them close to you relationally, emotionally, spiritually. It damages relationship and the possibility for real connection.
Deeply grieved over divisiveness that keeps us from seeking God first and seeing others as part of God’s valued creation.
We are called to steward our lives and let God live through us. Instead, we’re letting others see the enemy remove us from life-giving connection.
Shame fuels disconnection within ourselves, with others, & with God. We try to break free from shame by telling ourselves positive mantras to override negative messages wired into our being. When it doesn't work, the shame cycle spins more. pic.twitter.com/d5e6qtC4Za
If you grew up without grace or aren’t experiencing permission to live fully alive as the person God designed you to be, don’t give up. There is hope even if it’s hard to see right now.
God has something more to reveal to you than what the voice of condemnation has done to you.
