hello resistance

When you know you’re called to do something, it’s not uncommon to meet resistance. On Valentine’s Day, I set up shop with my typewriter. I was ready! I dressed up for Valentine’s day with a red ribbon in my hair, “Valentine Cards” sign taped onto the table, and typewriter plugged in ready to make cards […]

6 am bible readings

Last year I said yes to doing a 6 AM Bible reading every Wednesday. I don’t know what I was thinking. I didn’t realize how crazy the commitment was at the time; I just wanted to read out loud! It was a commitment of 52 early mornings. I’m a morning person, but not a 6 […]

reflections on card-making

Making cards and writing letters to my loved ones are some of my favorite things. I know this to be true. However, I see a huge gap between living that wonderful life of card-making and how I’m living today. Sometimes we have to look outside ourselves to find clues as to what’s happening inside. As […]

just write.

In the last decade and a half, you have seen me go through many phases of writing. I hate that it’s been so inconsistent. I’ve condemned myself on how I never finish what I set out to do. The fear that I’ll fail yet again is lingering in the air, taunting me. The fear of […]

wonky mornings

The piano has been my lifeline for decades. This morning I woke up bleary-eyed and convicted of scrolling too long on social media last night amongst other things, y’know. We all know the discipline of praying, journaling, and reading the Word is necessary and good for every part of our being, but there are times […]

2 more weeks + the single life

I can’t believe I’m two weeks away from moving into my very own home. Oh, it’s a dream for who knows how long, but life circumstances and high living costs hadn’t allow it. As a single lady in her thirties, I’m realizing what a special time this is. The perks of being single is much […]
