The Enneagram test is a currently a hot topic in personality testing and group dynamics studies. I’ve done the test (paid for version) and I took a simple free online test and got the same results, so I would say I’m pretty consistent in my personality type. I do think these types of tests are…

Here I am at the 31st day of writing for this year’s Write 31 Days series.  This year of writing has been a little different for me.  Last night I read back through every post of this month, the topics that I was in the weeds over the last couple of months, a few things…

Last night in my small group we were discussing Nehemiah and the calling he had been given to rebuild the wall of Jerusalem. This was no small task and one of the things that stuck with me most in this week’s lesson was how he had been a caretaker of the plan God put in…

Fortunately, not too many weeks feel like that for me, but this one has for whatever reason. However, it is Friday and that means the weekend! Which is forecasted to include days…

A couple of days ago I wrote about the little things and the song Dream Small, that some of our greatest moments are in the seemingly small consistent things we do every day. The ones that not many people will notice, or maybe are never even known. But, what about our big dreams? The thing…

We are one week away from Halloween! I’ve been around lots of littles lately who have been talking up their costumes and getting excited for lots of fall events wearing their costume. Superheroes. Princesses. Video game and movie characters. Sports figures. The list goes on. So fun for them! I never loved Halloween as a…

Last night I did one of those chores I consistently put off for a long time, usually until the basket is nearly overflowing behind the door of my laundry room.  Ironing. I know, ironing is seemingly an ancient practice but welcome to my hang-dry life. I don’t use the dryer for too many things, especially…
