Just Stop Talking

The end of the year is approaching and we're all making plans for next year. My husband and I are in the process of choosing our #oneword for 2021. It's a "thing" in our home. We pray and meditate on God's instruction for the coming year. Then, we choose a word that will keep us… Continue reading Just Stop Talking

Eating: It’s Definitely A “Thing”

Eating has always been a "thing" for me. I've been obsessive about my weight since I was fifteen and broke a hundred pounds on the scale. 104, to be exact. I'll never forget it. That same week my dance instructor told me "You're gaining weight. Watch that." Not sure if I thought I'd live my… Continue reading Eating: It’s Definitely A “Thing”

The Amy Cooper Apology: Stop Saying “I’m Sorry” and Repent

I first fell in love with words when I was seven years old. I still passionately love words today. To speak them, write them, or read them— centers me in the presence of God. Words are powerful. They can invoke pride, fear, comfort and chaos. That's why when I saw the video of Amy Cooper… Continue reading The Amy Cooper Apology: Stop Saying “I’m Sorry” and Repent
