  Today is my Dad’s birthday, and we got to celebrate him this weekend. There’s a lot of lessons I’ve learned from my Dad through the years, but the one that sticks with me the most is courage.  I was pretty much a fearful kid. I didn’t really like trying new things, most of them…

Sunday. Sabbath. Rest. The one thing that seems so hard to find time for, but the one thing we all really need. And then, need to #doitagain regularly. Carving out time to rest looks different for everyone. Taking a walk. Time spent with someone who matters. Creating or crafting. Cooking or baking. Tending a garden…

Happy Saturday! This week was packed, two work events, rodeo meeting, Bible study and I was  glad for a Friday night at home! Of course when there’s a week that feels like there isn’t really spare time, is the week when something unexpected happens that you don’t really have time for. Hello, Wednesday. And, my…

This week is a hard one for me, I’ve lost two besties in October, one October 10, 2006 and another last year, October 15, 2017.  Two things I could do without ever having to #doitagain.  But, we aren’t promised that grief will not come.  In fact, it’s come again recently.  And, it’s still just as…

I’ve always been a believer in checking in on someone when they come to mind repeatedly. Even if I don’t know what may/may not be going on for them, if someone is on my mind “out of the blue” I will reach out. I don’t know if you’ve ever received a call or text from…

It’s been a while since my last Book Review, so I thought now was a good time to #doitagain.  I read a lot at the end of summer and through September, this review is a mix of a wide range of books. I left off the last post having finished The Wife Between Us and…

A common practice in business and life coaching that you have probably heard over and over is to write down your goals. If you write them down, research has shown you’re more likely to stick to and accomplish them. I’ve never really been one to write down my goals. I’ve also heard this advice about…

One of my favorite week night activities is meeting with a small group of women for Bible study.  The last two years I’ve not been able to be involved in small group due to my MBA and having classes in the evenings. I’ve really missed those nights gathered around a table or in a living…

I’m in my car fairly often by myself and I usually take advantage of the drive time to catch up with friends on the phone or using chat apps like HeyTell and Voxer and voice text. I love that time time talking to friends while I’m driving, it is often a much needed catch up. However,…

September was a month for me.  In a word, it was dreary.  In so many ways. The thing I kept going back to throughout September was circling. There were things that I had to really circle in prayer.  And, I asked for help from a couple of my besties. The ones who can do the…
