How My Life is Changing After Cancer

Posted by on Apr 10, 2018 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

Back in January life took a turn I didn’t see coming. When my doctor said my thyroid nodules had grown, I went ahead and had a biopsy done. The biopsy came back suspicious for thyroid cancer and two weeks ago, they took my thyroid out. Crazily the pathology came back with papillary thyroid cancer in both sides. While the cancer is all gone, the doctors will be watching me more closely now. My health has taken some crazy turns the last few years. Last October, I became really tired and hit a brick wall with my energy. When I tired to hit...

Rob Porter, the classic narcissist

Posted by on Feb 27, 2018 in Domestic Violence | 0 comments

Domestic violence is prevalent in today’s news. Recently, Rob Porter who resigned from the White House two weeks ago, had allegations of abuse come against him by two ex-wives. As it turns out, the first #MeToo story to actually trip up the White House needed to be as graphic and violent as the accusations against Rob Porter. It involved a Rhodes Scholar golden boy who had been married to two old-fashioned girls. This, and indeed the entire situation, provides the perfect mirror to reflect all the ways in which systems, fail women....

Self-righteousness keeps us from compassion

Posted by on Feb 11, 2018 in Compassion, Following God | 0 comments

This past August it became very clear with the launch of my book that I would be moving in a different direction of healing. During the process of writing my book, I was able to remove the emotion and as a consequence didn’t shed a tear. Several people have asked, ‘Was it carthartic writing your book?’ And my answer has been yes and no. Personally, I thought I didn’t cry because I was healed from all the hurt the book represented. Not so much… Usually my crying happens at church, or at BSF (which they’re...

Friendship

Posted by on Jan 11, 2018 in Compassion, Harrison, Kids, Relationships | 1 comment

Moving creates new opportunities to establish new friendships. Every time we go to the park, my son Harrison meets a new ‘friend’. A couple of little boys we’ve met have actually enjoyed playing with Harrison. It’s definitely been fun to watch, but also heartbreaking because he thinks everyone is his friend even when they’re not or they have to leave. This got me thinking about the friendship circles we’ve been through in recent years. Moving around and going through divorce has definitely lead me to be a...

Gather

Posted by on Oct 24, 2017 in Compassion, Following God, Relationships | 0 comments

After going through a season of¬†rejection and then realizing my need for connection, gather was the next word in the progression of healing. Gather can be defined as ‘bring together and take in from scattered places or sources.’ I also think of gather as getting people together for a movement, or a common interest. That’s how I categorize my friendships. Each person is from a different area of our life whether its from work, church, workout friends, hobbies or new neighbors. It’s the common connection with these people...

Potholes

Posted by on Sep 11, 2017 in Encouragement, Following God, Health | 0 comments

This past year has been filled with so many amazing things and also some setbacks. It’s been a trying year when it comes to my health. Last year I had a liver resection and was miraculously better after 4 weeks and back to working out at 6 weeks. The fact that is wasn’t cancer was an even bigger praise! But this year, I’ve had stupid stuff happen to my health. Dropped a 30 pound weight on my foot in March and had a bone bruise for 3 weeks. Then in June my calf muscle tore. Slowly, but surely I’ve been recouping from...

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...

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…...
