About a year ago, I had this crazy notion to write a BLOG. I thought it might be fun. And I figured writing would make me stretch me a little…OK, a lot. My word for 2014 was “connection”, so the BLOG writing thing seemed to fit.
What Is Your Word For 2015?
I am flat-out horrible at keeping New Year’s Resolutions! In fact, I kicked that whole resolution thing to the curb years ago vowing never to put myself through the horrible gut-wrenching process ever again. Ever. What does work for me – and may for you – is to choose a word for the coming year. Yep. One word. I figure… Read More
The Gift Of Free Will
There are days I wish God would do away with all this “free will” nonsense. Being a robotic, wind-up doll wouldn’t be so bad, would it? We’d never screw up. And we’d stop second guessing our decisions. Maybe you’re like me. Some of the decisions I’ve made in my life have turned out better than I could have ever hoped… Read More
Burning The Candle At Both Ends
Even as a kid, my Mom would tell me to slow down a little. “Quit saying yes to everything and everybody.” she’d say, “You’re burning the candle at both ends and you’ll have a price to pay when there’s nothing left.” I am good at a few things, but I am literally a Rock Star when it comes to over… Read More
Let's Blow The Doors Off!
“You Christians have in your keeping a document with enough dynamite in it to blow the whole of civilization to bits, to turn society upside down, to bring peace to this war-torn world. But you read it as if it were just good literature, and nothing else.” ~ Mahatma Gandhi

Our re-entry turned… Read More
Good, Bad or Ugly…Own It!
When things go wrong or spin out of control, many of us fall into the trap of playing the blame game! Scripture calls us to have conversation with that gal in the mirror to do a fierce moral inventory of our role in every situation. I can honestly tell you from personal experience, when we find ourselves in a mess, it is… Read More
Do I Smell Burning Hair?
Being exhausted and stretched beyond reason appears to be the status quo today. Back in my high pressured corporate days, I used to tease about running around with my hair on fire. Now it’s like wearing a red badge of courage. Exhaustion is the new status symbol. We are all overcommitted and few of us have any white space or margin… Read More
Inner Beauty Doesn't Wash Off
When I stand in line at the grocery store, I feel those photo-shopped women on the magazine covers staring at me! I know they are whispering to each other… “Oh good Lord, do you see what she’s wearing? And no makeup!” “Cutting back to one small meal and a few carrot sticks a day would do her a world of… Read More
