An open letter to the woman who feels like there’s something missing

Sitting here in this cafe, surrounded by groups of women who are leaning in close and confiding in each other, I’m more certain than ever that I need to write this. I hear it in the conversation that carries above the music, and I see it in the encouraging hugs of hello and goodbye;...

5 things to consider when your path seems stalled…

  Pursuing your dreams is exhilarating, but it can also be challenging. Especially when things aren’t happening as quickly or as smoothly as you thought they would. If you’re at a place in your path where you feel like your dreams have stalled, here are five things to consider: 1. Are your expectations realistic? When...

When you feel like it’s too late to pursue your dream…

When you feel like it’s too late to pursue your dream…

Early in my journey as a writer, when I first set out to pursue my dream of becoming an author, I dug out an old box that my mom had saved from my high school years. At the bottom, buried under dried prom and homecoming flowers, my graduation cap and gown, and pictures upon pictures of...

When you don’t feel good about your body: 5 things to remember

In my work with moms and women, I’ve had countless conversations about how we often struggle with our self-image. We look in the mirror and instead of appreciating our unique qualities, the negative self-talk begins. As someone who has struggled too, I know how it is to battle these feelings, and even obsessions. But...

What to remember when you’re facing change (and why it’s a beautiful certainty)

  A friend asked me recently how we did it – how we moved our two teenagers across states like that with one going into 8th grade and one going into 10th. How did we make it look so easy? she wondered. It wasn’t easy, I promised her. There were tears and unknowns and excruciating goodbyes....

What will you do with your 168 hours?

What will you do with your 168 hours?

“We all have 168 hours in a week and one life to live.” I look at those words written by Jessica Turner at Ann Voskamp’s blog and I pause. 168 hours. When you say a week, it sounds like a week – routine and packed with this, that and the other thing. But when you break...

What’s hiding under your tent? (and the secret I kept for 33 years)

Jun 15, 2015

What’s hiding under your tent? That was the question that spurred me to finally share a secret I had kept for 33 years (that I can actually laugh about now). But before I get into that, let me back up a bit. I recently read Brene Brown’s NYT Bestseller Daring Greatly in a book club with...

Do you have the Courage to Be You?

Do you have the Courage to Be You?

Do you have the courage to be you? That is the question my friend Jenny Williamson asks readers in her new book, and it’s a question that changed her life and set her on a journey of discovering her, “water-walking, giant-slaying, history-making destiny.” I’m so excited to share Jenny’s book with you today. If you’ve been...

Finding Your Dreams in His Story

Life is a story and each day is a new page, and even though that sounds totally cliché, the ironic thing is, when we stop trying to figure it all out—when we shift from pursuing our dreams for our own agenda to being available for God to use to reach out to others, we start to...
