In Search of Quiet

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,...

Hello + Welcome

I can hardly believe I am writing this post. *cue ALL the tears* Two years ago, while laying on a massage table, I had a vision about a podcast that would recreate what I was experiencing weekly in my living room with my IF: Tribe. True community. Real and raw...

Grieving + Single

I am not doing well.  I thought I was doing well. Especially after a visit to say good-bye to someone I loved. Then Monday... ...and every day since.  In counseling today I had all of the words and none of the words.  Then...

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
