another new beginning....seems they are coming at me left and right.

Beginnings.
I love beginnings.  Movies, books, days, vacations, friendships ... ice cream cones.  The only exception could be learning this dang guitar....it's not an easy task, if I might say so.

This is a new beginning for us.  A totally new, fresh,

a little freak out...no big deal...help!

The rain pours down.  The sky is dark.  The house is quiet.  The kids are at school.  The to-do list is dwindling….that is if you don’t count EVERYTHING I have to do to prepare for this journey ahead.  

I’m curious.  What would you do…if you felt the nudge to leave it all behind and venture into a new realm of the unknown?  Would you take the leap? Would you

Perfectly orchestrated...yet, facing impossibilities

In all honesty, and shockingly so, my life feels pretty. perfectly. orchestrated. at the moment.  Don’t get me wrong there are obstacles.  
Impossible Looking Roadblocks, more like.


However, in all of our imperfect circumstances and stupid insecurities and among all the questioning and doubt, I find myself … grateful in this moment….excited about my future.

Finding ME...embracing the discovery.

In all the striving I find peace.  I find rest in the midst of the motion of life that surrounds me.  This is a shocker to me.  I had no idea I would be in this place.



I’m sure you’ve been there…so busy your head is spinning and you can’t figure out which task to pickup next or why you can’t get 37 things done at the same time.  You know I have this entire house to go through …inch by inch…drawer by drawer…closet by closet.

The Purging Process of the Journey

Have you ever experienced one of those team building exercises where you have to fall straight back and trust that someone will be there to catch you?  This is about how life feels right now.


I feel like ... I'm falling.  Trusting.  Expecting.  

This journey "The Long Way Home" is completely changing me already

Surprise visit HOME...shock and awe.

I'm getting way thrilled, to say the least, about this wild journey ahead we've fittingly coined  "The long way home" (seems to be the best way to describe it as we'll be finding our next home somewhere along the way.)  Read here. Or watch the YouTube video here. 

planting, watering and growing...in this life...all around...now begins the adventure
(I wrote this a few days ago while nearing the end of our little Texas Spring Break adventure…read on.)

Talk about a long way home....Last Thursday evening about 5pm...after a brief discussion of what we'd do on our upcoming Spring Break we decided to load up the Land Rover and set our sails for Texas (16 hours away) to visit family and friends.  Within literally 2 hours of packing we were on our way.

The Long Way Home

When’s the last time you failed at something?  What about the last time you were rejected in a big way?  Have you ever fallen flat on your face?  We’ve all been there and I’m certainly no exception.  I’ve been down more times than I care to count to be entirely honest! 

Recently I put myself out there…. to be scrutinized, judged and analyzed.  All in hopes that a door that I wanted to walk through would swing open wide.  It came back to me that I didn’t measure up. I had failed.  I was flat out rejected with no explanation of any kind.  

If you’ve heard me speak at all you know how strongly I feel about the power of gratitude so I immediately fought back the tears, dusted off my knees

A Giant Journey...our BIG news

Life is one grand adventure.  Occasionally this adventure seems to take on a life of its own.  When I started traveling in my early 20’s I developed a passion for seeing new places and meeting new people.  The desire for greater adventure and experiences seemed to be coursing through my veins at an exponential speed. I was hooked.

One word for 2017...what's yours?

We’re one month into 2017 already and I’m curious as to what you’re experiencing so far.  If you were to give 2017 ONE word what would it be?  Check out the post from the beginning of the month.  As a refresher: Mine is FREEDOM!  Freedom from insecurities that have had me bound up for most of my life.  Freedom from fear of other people’s opinions of me. Freedom from doubt and unbelief.  Freedom to be the woman God has created me to be. What’s your word?

Words contain so much power.

What are you feeding?

faith or doubt? future or past?
Whatever you starve has no opportunity to grow.  Without food something surely dies.  What are you spending your energy on?  That’s what will grow and flourish.
My past is littered with pain, constant change, failures and on the other hand, major adventures and travel.  As you may already know, I was diagnosed with

10 things to do if you're in transition

Thanks Transition is no easy thing.  Passing through one season of life to another takes effort, focus, patience, direction and most of all….time.  How long does transition take?  It all depends.
It could take days, weeks, months and even years to move through a transition into the next phase or season of life.  It can’t be rushed.  We’re all so very different and each situation presents new challenges.


Why are you in transition?  Are you in crisis mode or simply moving up in the world?  Maybe you’re not here by choice.  Any number of situations could’ve brought you to this point.  Divorce, marriage, having a baby, losing a child, kids going away to college,

The elephant in the room

I’m a firm believer in getting out of your cozy little comfort zone of limiting beliefs and insecurities.  This is more often than not, easier said than done.  My case is no different.  

I recently enrolled in a speaker challenge through a

What is your word? speak it out

Starting off on the right foot….its kinda important.

Just inside of 2017 I’m sensing excitement, more than nervousness, for what’s to come.  There’s hope.
What is your hope for 2017?
