For or Against

March 27, 2014

I heard someone wise once say that she wants to be "known for what she's for; not what she's against." I find that I want the same thing. In a world where the voices of contention, criticism, angst, and cynicism are loud and proud, I think a positive spin on what we care about is deeply needed. …

The temps are still a bit up and down, but for the most part, Spring has arrived in the Carolinas. I absolutely love this season - the flowers in bloom and warm afternoon sunshine bring such a renewed sense of joy and hope after a long winter. It's also a great reflection of this period of my life. …

How Did We Know?

March 20, 2014

Just the other day, we were having a conversation with a dear friend who asked us a very good question. She said, "How did you know the dream/vision you are pursuing is from God? How did you fight through the doubts and know it wasn't just something selfish?" In all honesty, it was quite a long …

I Won't Go Back

March 17, 2014

Every third Sunday morning at Good Shepherd, the rockin’ and rowdy choir gets to be a part of leading worship.  I thoroughly enjoy being in the alto section of this choir, and it has been such a great opportunity to get to know other church members and have a musical outlet. Another reason I love …

The other day, Devin and I took a hike...on our new property! It was so fun to discover all sorts of nooks and crannies we were only able to glance at before. Here are a few pics from our adventure:

The Rail

March 13, 2014

I have leaned on or sat up on the top rail of plank fencing so many times just to watch horses go around an arena, learn from a clinician, encourage and cheer on fellow riders, dream out loud with friends, and catch up on the latest happenings. It was also while perched on a top rail that I saw our …

It's Enough

March 10, 2014

Last night, Devin and I took a moment to stand out on our back deck and enjoy the clarity of a night sky in the country. While the commute is taking a little getting used to, we absolutely love the new house and property. What a joy it is to take a morning walk on the  land and get to know all the …

No Stopping Point

March 6, 2014

I recently listened to a postcast interview with Shelley Giglio (wife of Louie Giglio, co-Founder of Passion Conferences, and Chief Strategist and Band Manager for sixstepsrecords).  She and Louie have partnered in student ministry over 20 years, and I have loved watching them take seemingly …

Taking in the View

February 28, 2014

Apparently prepping my 501(c)3 paperwork, taking part in a youth Winter Retreat weekend, painting a new house, subbing at a preschool, packing up the apartment, and moving in has created a little bit of a whirlwind in my life because I’m all off schedule on my blogging this week.  It’s been easy to …
