Roller Coasters

Posted by on Jun 1, 2018 in Domestic Violence, Encouragement, Hope | 0 comments

I love roller coasters! We grew up going to Cedar Point in Sandusky, OH and rode them almost every summer when we visited my grandparents. They are so much fun with the twists and turn, and never knowing what’s around the next bend or corner. My son is also a dare devil and loves to ride them too. We recently rode one at the Kiddie Park in Oklahoma and it was a blast getting to watch him squeal with delight as we went around the track. My daughter didn’t care for it at all and is definitely my more cautious child. This got me...

Hands and Feet

Posted by on May 9, 2018 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

My first year serving in BSF leadership is coming to a close this week. This year has been much needed surgery, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. 18 women were gifted to me this year. I use the word gifted because they have been the sweetest gift of encouragement, empathy, love, and support as we walked alongside each other through the year. I not only gained wonderful new friends, but hiking buddies, new connections, spiritual encouragement, and growth as a person. We learned so much over the year, but one consistent theme throughout...

Living abundantly

Posted by on Apr 29, 2018 in Book, Encouragement | 0 comments

Living abundantly is a hope for people who have gone through hard times or suffering. Living abundantly is defined as life abounding in fullness of joy and strength of mind, body and soul. It can also motivate a person to seek a change in their life. How does one go about creating an abundant life? This is something I’ve worked to incorporate in my life since my divorce in 2003. I longed to know what the abundant life meant and how it could be lived out on a daily basis. Along the way, I learned lessons on living abundantly through hard...

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┬árejection 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...
