The Soothing Power of Water

When my heart gets messy or undone or overwhelmed...when I need to work out my mind as it drowns with ideas or memories or both....whenever I need to find the heart of God in the heart of me, I go find water. If you ever can't find me, there is a good chance that you...

The Long Driveway Home

When I was a little girl, we lived down a long rocky driveway. I would ride my bike from our house to the end of it every day to get our mail. The mailboxes were bunched together on the side of the state highway where our driveway came out. I used to dream of...

In Search of Quiet

I don't know when I became a 100 year old woman, but here we are. A chunk of my counseling session yesterday was me yapping about noise so much that my counselor gave me homework. She asked that I book at least two days, one night alone, away...somewhere, anywhere,...

The Art of Storytelling in Haiti

It has been awhile...I am sorry. A little backstory... I really thought once I had a new beautiful home for all of my words that I would write ALL the time. Sharing my musings, travels, lessons, tips, etc. as I had always tried to do...but NOW more officially (read...

The Gift of 47.

I am bringing my whole heart…my whole self to my 47th year. I am tremendously humbled and grateful to be here…now. Even more, for the first time in my whole life, I truly believe my best days are ahead of me…not behind.

Musings

This is where it all began for me. A simple blog started back in 2011 has led to all of this. I consider my writing the place where God and I get real with each other. My process is a little odd in that I don’t prep as much as I sit down and just let the Holy Spirit take over the keyboard. The process is HOLY and offering all of it up to a world that judges so harshly….well that feels vulnerable and terrifying. Yet, this is where God and I work it all out, and I share because other writers shared their stories with me. That is what we do…we pass down our stories to each other like breadcrumbs. We are all in this together.

Music is definitely on of my love languages and so there was no doubt that I would figure out a way to share with you the music that was leaving its imprint on my heart. In this space, the goal is to share my own playlists along with other’s that are wrecking my heart in all of the best ways. I hope you will find something here that speaks to your heart.

Be bold enough to use your voice, brave enough to listen to your heart, and strong enough to live the life you’ve always imagined. // Unknown
