    Inspiration for Your Mountain

    August 22, 2017

    The mountains set before you, they’re yours to conquer.  You climb for growth and perspective, and more than that, you climb because something inside you tells you to.  Your purpose pulls you. Some days you walk, other days you run.  Then there are days you rest quietly.  No matter the choice of action, you’ve kept going.

    The Other Side of the Fence

    August 17, 2017

    My back yard has a privacy fence.  Except for the squirrel with 007 skills and the skunk that came for peanut butter, the fence serves its purpose well, keeping onlookers out.  Standing 6ft tall, it guards the private sector of my outside world.   The fence hides me.  Within a rectangle, I can move freely!  […]

    Quiet Invitation

    August 13, 2017

    Quiet places rarely happen.  Having a quiet mind and stillness of body is rare these days.  From the moment our feet touch the floor we invade a noisy space of accomplished tasks.  Our minds begin an hourly journey of sorting and analyzing.   Quiet is rare.   Stepping outside, my bare feet are welcomed by […]

    Jesus Laughed

    July 16, 2017

    I’ve wondered from time to time what Jesus’ laugh sounded like? Do you think it sounded jolly like Santa with a “Ho,Ho,Ho”?  Perhaps it broke out in one exuberant “HAAA!”   The idea of listening to Jesus laugh sounds like a foreign concept.  Growing from childhood to adulthood has a way of silencing our laugh.

    Treasure Found In Sand

    April 12, 2017

    Every morning my eyes would open to the first beams of the light shining over the waves of the Florida coast, as if the horizon was opening her eyes with me.  It was time; time for me to run to the beach and troll for treasure!  Surely the tide washed in some wonderful shells for […]

    Walking Through Mysteries

    March 23, 2017

    Healing.   Honestly, I didn’t know if I would get to write this.  I’ve battled headaches for over 25 years.  The last six months have been too painful to express without it sounding like complaining.  I’ve been focused on my family and homeschooling.  When you have limited strength you focus your strength on the most important […]

    With Play Comes Possibilities

    February 26, 2017

    It seems Father speaks through one puzzle piece at a time.  Every piece joins to another and a greater perspective is seen. “Opportunity Dwells in the Household of Faith” “Partnership” This puzzle piece (or part of this little book) came through a dream and is fitting for the season at hand . . . it’s […]

    January 16, 2017

    The Path of Authority

    December 20, 2016

    These last six months have been a challenge for me.  I was diagnosed with Chronic daily migraines. I didn’t believe it at first, it took a trip to the neurologist and a headache diary for me to see how chronic they actually were … black and white facts tend to speak loudly.  It’s been a […]

    Do You Know Your Calling?

    November 2, 2016

    On the verge of turning 40 years old I still don’t feel as though I’m walking in my complete Calling.  Where did the path turn when I stepped out of college?  Are those business law courses helping me now?  I’m a wife of almost 20 years, I’m raising 3 amazingly talented girls (whom I home […]

    Keep Singing Your Melody

    October 29, 2016

    She stood among her piers trying to remember the words to a melody heard just prior.  She holds the paper over her mouth so only her eyes can be seen … her voice is shy when being watched.  The paper she holds is filled with music notes and words she cannot read.  I see her […]
