TC, contact me for the details about how to get your book! Congratulations!
Everyone else, I’ll see you back here (and at my co-facilitator Jason’s) next week to begin our discussion!
I know, I know…. I’ve been gone so long you started to assume that the aliens had come to take me back to my home planet, right? Nope. I’m still here. And after holidays and travel and much, much, much busyness, we’re ready to launch into a new book! I’ve always been a bit skeptical about … [Read More...]
In case you’re new to my neighborhood, let me tell you something about me that you may not know: I love the ocean. I was born for it. And God has used it to teach me some of the most profound lessons of my life. About five or six years ago, while my brother was dating his now-wife, our family … [Read More...]
Do you know what love looks like? I do. Lori. Nancy. Jamie. Alyssa. Sunia. Talli. Jodi. Seven of my sisters who choose, every day, to go out and do good. To love. To make a difference. And on Thanksgiving night, Sunia and Jamie sent us a message and said, “Who wants to join us in making … [Read More...]

I’m a follower. Always been more comfortable following than leading. But I haven’t always chosen the best leaders to follow, and that lesson was a very painful one in my early 20s. I had moved away from home to be closer to my boyfriend. And the first time I attended his church, I loved it. The … [Read More...]
A little over a year ago, I started going to a new church. From the very beginning, I could tell that there was something different about this church, I just couldn’t explain it in words. And then, about a month ago, I heard someone else explain it perfectly: “This is a church where it’s okay that … [Read More...]
Do you ever have one of those forgetful moments when you get up and walk into a different room and suddenly, you can’t recall why you’re there?
