We're walking on this journey together!



Breaking Bracelets (and Chains)

A couple weeks ago, I had one of those hard conversations. You know the ones.

Maybe you have numerous work clients calling your phone, 2 hungry kids asking “what’s for dinner?,” laundry piled up over your head, or unpaid bills stacked on the table. I’m sure our to-do lists look very different. But, there is a common visitor on our lists of what not to do- spend waste our time complainingContinue reading “What Not To Do”

: an overwhelming feeling of reverence, admiration, fear, etc., produced by that which is grand, extremely powerful, or the like


There’s something special about awe. Unlike a lot of adjectives, “awe” is not overused or degraded in meaning. Awe still contains the power and the strength that many words have lost over the years.  Continue reading “Awed by Grace”
