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 which can lead to gathering together. Several...

Potholes

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 this last injury as I train for a 1/2 marathon....

Chasing Failure

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...

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 year as people start New Years resolutions and goal...

How is it December?

Posted by on Dec 8, 2015 in Encouragement, Following God, Transition | 0 comments

2015 is almost to a close and I wonder where did the year go? It has been such an amazing time of growth, opportunity and change. To say I’m wondering what 2016 holds is an understatement. Very excited at the opportunities that lay before us and continuing to pray about my purpose and footing. Recently as I’ve been contemplating our families next steps, I ran across a video by one of my favorite designers, Joanna Gaines. Love her design ideas and her fresh spin on living and loving life. More importantly I love her take on following dreams and what it means for her and her...

Holy Spirit Empowered

This past weekend was the ifgathering, a conference equipping women to live out their life’s purpose. The two days are comprised of amazing speakers, some who are well known and others who are on the rise. All have published books and some have started movements and non-profits. What’s amazing is the accomplishments of these women at such young ages. 40 is young to me now. Christine Caine stands out to me every time I hear her. Talk about a truly gifted speaker who is on fire for God! Her talk this year was about living out your destiny and not someone else’s. An unhealthy...
