We are whole. We do not bleed from childhood brokenness and trauma that traveled with us into the season of adulthood. They were halted at the onset of puberty. Or better yet, at the creation in the womb.
I was listening to a podcast this morning that I’m really growing fond of. The host is a Christian single woman who’s found herself in her mid 30s with her life looking nothing like she thought it would. Sound familiar? Well this morning’s interview was with another woman who has a strong faith but got… Continue reading Some Things Just Come Easy
Before this season I knew next to nothing about getting a book publishing deal. And can I tell you a secret? Even with two self-published books under my belt, I still didn’t consider myself “a real writer”. I mean, I’m a good writer (in my opinion) but I did not study writing or major in… Continue reading A Real Writer
I remember last year I was invited to an open mic night by a friend. When I arrived I was asked if I was performing. I’m sure I looked like a poet, with my retro hair and high waist pants (I love vintage style) but I let the woman down easy. “Nope,” I said with… Continue reading A Company of Poets
Hi guys! I think I’ve mentioned I’ve been branching out in my writing more. One of the ways I’ve been growing as a writer is by taking a poetry workshop.

The daughter took a sip of her latte and typed feverishly at her keyboard. She had brought her laptop so… Continue reading Writing, Family & Time
This weekend I celebrated the release of my 2nd book How To Overcome Heartbreak: Stories That Heal. It took me exactly 9 months to start this book project and publish it. That’s probably pretty quick for most but that was the gift God has offered me in this season. I have the gift of TIME.… Continue reading Gifts, Parties & Sacrifice
“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
So this month marks my 2 year anniversary with this little blog :-). It was definitely NOT love at first sight, I’ll tell you that much! Being a “writer” was never on my agenda. Though always an avid reader, I never intentionally pursued writing. I imagined that maybe “one day” I’d come out with a… Continue reading HAPPY ANNIVERSARY!
HAPPY BIRTHDAY to my little blog!!! It has been one year this month that I started blogging and words can’t express how amazed I am at the fruit that has come from this site. BUT since it IS a BLOG, I will just have to TRY to use words :-). In all honesty I originally had NO intention of… Continue reading Happy Birthday Blog!
