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…

I wrote earlier this month about saying “no”, but the flip side of “no” is when to say “yes”. This is another area of my life I often find myself circling in prayer. In the big and the little things I choose to say “yes” to.  I read Lysa Terkeurst’s book The Best Yes several…

Friday afternoon I had a rare treat of happy hour out with friends, specifically this week the friends I used to work with.  Since changing jobs this fall I’ve missed my work friends the most.  My new job is going really well, but coming from a large team to virtually no team has been an…

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…

I booked a trip on Sunday evening for the spring and was talking about the pricing of various airline tickets and additional costs for baggage, etc. as we were looking at flights. I really appreciate the airlines who make it simple to pack your bags and fly without a bunch of extra cost.  If only…

When I was near the end of my MBA a few other commitments were coming to an end as well. I made a conscious decision as those things ended to say “no” to anything else for the rest of 2018. This would allow me some time to soak up some down time, to spend time…
