Chasing Failure

Posted by on Jul 10, 2017 in Book, Following God | 0 comments

Today at Red Rocks Church, Ryan Leak, the author and producer of Chasing Failure, came to speak. He’s a gifted speaker with the ability to draw you into his amazing story. His question to the audience was ‘What would you do if you knew you could not fail?’ Become today who you are tomorrow. What I loved about his message was the positive spin on trying even if it doesn’t result in the outcome you desire. Several people have said to me, ‘You wrote a book. You’re an author.’ I personally don’t consider myself an author. I like the term writer...

Connection

Posted by on Jun 23, 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Today I choose thankfulness. Today I choose gratitude. And today I choose connection. These are thoughts that came with me from a few weekends ago and keep permeating my mind. Mike and I spent an entire weekend in the mountains at a marriage retreat. There was no cell service, just us, other couples we knew, food and wine, and beautiful nature. The kids were at our best friends house enjoying time with their ‘cousins.’ And it was pure bliss. I got to eat chocolate peanut butter balls with abandon. You catch my drift… Connection was the word that kept coming back and is...

Rejection

Another season of growth has finally come to a close. This has been a season I haven’t wanted to deal with in the slightest. Change and growth are hard, but it’s normally for your own good. I personally have dug my heels in and said ‘no I don’t want to change’. Growth has come this time in the form of rejection. Rejection has been a theme through the last few seasons, but has also provided a ton of feedback on my life. It has helped me in recognizing where I need to cut back on activities, who and where to invest my time, and how to really help those who need...

Finding favor

What beautiful snowy night on May 18th! Being snowed in is a wonderful way to catch up on life, have conversation with the hubby and write. I haven’t forgotten about writing and have actually written a few things I’ll be posting over the next couple of weeks. These past few months have flown by with the kids school and classes, teaching class, and moving into a new home. It hasn’t left time to drink my coffee while warm, write or invest in others. Two weeks ago we had some time to drink coffee and invest in others. It was a wonderful marriage retreat in the mountains which...

Abuse and boundary setting

My previous relationship started out as innocent as the next. Our first date was over seven hours long. Seth was easy to talk to, pleasant to be around and charming. We started with dinner at an Italian place, then we went hiking at one of his favorite places, took in a movie and, finally, we rented a movie. I wouldn’t let him kiss me because I didn’t kiss on the first date. So, he asked if he could kiss me on the cheek and I said yes. I sent him an email he next day, thanking him for the date. He later told me that he wasn’t going to ask me out again because I didn’t kiss him. The only...
