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…...

Rejection

Posted by on May 31, 2017 in Compassion, Suffering, Transition | 0 comments

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...

Finding favor

Posted by on May 19, 2017 in Uncategorized | 0 comments

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...

Abuse and boundary setting

Posted by on Mar 8, 2017 in Book, Domestic Violence, Narcissism | 0 comments

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...

Awakening

Posted by on Jan 3, 2017 in Following God, Transition | 0 comments

2017 has already started out with interesting twists and turns. There have been some wake-up calls which have left me baffled and wondering what’s next. I keep trying to make changes happen in my own time and in my own way. Changes that aren’t easy, but could potentially yield long term gain for myself and family. As I’ve started navigating this there is still a general theme of wait. Wait and see what I do… Awakening is the theme being preached at my church. It’s a very fitting message for the beginning of the...
