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 my time, and how to really help those who need...

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...

Just Breathe

Posted by on Jun 2, 2016 in Infertility, Kids, Transition | 0 comments

So I’ve been in love with this song Breathe before it hit the airwaves in 2015. This song holds so much meaning in my life with two little ones. Many families have navigated two kids 15 months apart, but this was not what I envisioned in my head as a family. When we were going through infertility, we thought for sure our kids would be at least two years apart given the hurdles to get them here. Surprise when Madelyn showed up, but that’s a blog post for another time. What struck me about this song, outside of the fact that Jonny is a wonderful song writer, is the tempo and...

How is it December?

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...

New occupation

Posted by on Jun 14, 2015 in Harrison, Kids, Transition | 0 comments

Today for the first time I filled in Stay at Home Mom as my occupation. My sweet husband had given me a massage as a gift for Mothers Day. They asked what my occupation was and I hadn’t answered that question in a while. It was different, but made sense. This really is my new reality for the next few years. I’m still working through what that means and how to do it well. I got to sit and really think about what that means for me and my family. There are still things I get to do such as consulting, working on my book (finally) and volunteering for causes close to my heart....

Transition

Corrie ten Boom said “I have learned in my years on earth to hold everything loosely because when I hold things tightly God has to pry my fingers away. And that hurts.” Transition is something that I’ve had to learn to appreciate and embrace with each step of journey. My life has had several transitions – single to married to divorced to married again to infertility to becoming a mom for the first time. Each transition and time of change was necessary for me to grow. Growth is something that I’ve actually learned to enjoy even if it means heartache, change, joy or whatever fun adjective I...
