This weekend I had the pleasure of being interviewed by a woman who I recently connected with (shout out to Sage Da Coach from Outside the Box!). She asked me what I had learned this year from God. I instantly knew, I learned that I need others. I have been so wired to be self-reliant and independent, and a lot of times I need to be, but I am learning that I don’t need to be all the time. There are times I simply will not be able to do things all on my own, and I will need help.
What? I’m able to walk? I should be walking? This was news to me! I had been hobbling, rolling, crawling and hopping around for the last 6 weeks, but no walking. I had been doing everything BUT walking! Now, I can just walk?!

“So are you seeing anyone?”, she asks as we sit across from one another in her marvolously decorated dining room and finish up supper. When I walked in I was instantly impressed and a little taken aback by the amazing interior design work that graced each space. She then let on that she herself was… Continue reading Being Asked the Question
Many years ago I was pretty much desperate to be in a committed relationship. I hate to use that word but it’s pretty accurate. I was needy and codependent and did not know my identity. When you’re in a state like that you’re liable to accept anything. And so I did. Thankfully God got a… Continue reading Can I Be Casual?
Hello there! Please check out my guest podcast here. SHALOM!
It’s funny how long you can go living in a state that is less than ideal. Your life has been that way for so long you don’t know any better. It is your normal, even when it is abnormal. Who are you if that thing changes? What will your life look like in this new… Continue reading Life Without Fear
Social media is one of those things that it is what you make it. It can be a great way to celebrate life or a reminder of what you do not have. For the most part I enjoy seeing the celebrations shared but sometimes I could go without seeing them. Sometimes I get a little… Continue reading Starting Off At A Deficit
