I was looking through old pictures last month and came across a picture from 2013. Trip, my then baby, was about 10 months old and I had been working out consistently and pretty intensely for about six months. I had muscle, I had tone, and I really liked my legs (not to be weird.)Read More

I don’t like posting pictures of myself, it makes me feel goofy, it makes me look at all my imperfections, it makes me see my flaws. But sometimes our perspective of ourselves is skewed and it takes a friend, a leader to help show us our true talent and our true beauty.Read More
I can let my thoughts take control of me. I chalk it up to being an emotional person, and being an emotional person isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Emotional people can be empathic and generous, but we can also suffer with people pleasing, depression and anxiety.Read More
I woke up in a funk. Has this ever happened to you? Ok, I’ve been in a funk for about three days. I’m sharp, snide, or as my friends like to say, “snarky.”

My Grandmother never returned to the group stating, “I wonder what they say about me when I’m not around.”Read More
Ever have a situation where you want to unleash all your rage on your significant other?
You’re angry, annoyed, over it.
How you react in those moments, for better or worse, will greatly impact your marriage.

I am not Miss Pinterest by any stretch of the imagination, but sometimes a really good word causes me to stretch my limits.
Ok... seriousness for one minute.
My friend, Becca, gave an amazing message the other week. I like practical, step-by-step, how to messages...maybe I’m basic? It inspired me to “be intentional.”Read More
“I spend my time with God at 4:30am,” a wise pastor once said to me. “Well, morning aren’t my thing,” I replied. I went home thinking, “I want to give God my best and my best is in the evening.” When I did study his word, or pray, or worship Him evening would be my time.Read More
