But why?

But why?

Don’t you just love it when you tell your child to do something and they say “But why?”  Sometimes that is a question we just dread hearing.  Sometimes, it is a question we eagerly ask.  And sometimes, it is a question we avoid asking. “But why?” can come from a place of manipulation or curiosity…

Knowing, Believing, Trusting

Knowing, Believing, Trusting

Do you ever feel like you study God’s word but it does not change anything?  I do.  Sometimes I even feel cheated.  Other times I just beat myself up because I feel like I am obviously not studying enough or correctly.  I am realizing that knowing things and experiencing things are different. Jesus said “You…

I am Like a Mockingbird

I am Like a Mockingbird

I have been really enjoying the red and blue birds that visit our backyard every day.  They like to perch on the trampoline, fly around the yard and rest in the trees that line our property.  Their vibrant red and blue color pops amongst the green foliage on the trees.  They stand out.  They display…

From Broken to Beautiful

From Broken to Beautiful

Sea glass is broken pieces of glass, turned and tossed in the ocean.  It is carried to the shore by waves.  It shines and glistens on the sand and is found by passers by.  They are so excited about their find.  It is such a beautiful gift.    Something that once was whole.  Something that once…

One Step at a Time

I want what I want and I want it now! That is the typical mentality I have when it comes to my dreams and desires. My inclination to be this way is encouraged by the world around me. Just take a minute to stop and look around. We have so much information that we are…

Grace To Be Me

Grace To Be Me

I came across this picture with a quote that said: “GRACE CHANGES EVERYTHING: The secret to being enough in a do-more world.” It goes along perfectly with the theme of grace we’ve been discussing in a small group we’re participating in at Hood Memorial Church entitled Freeway. In going through this the past several weeks,…

New Mercies

New Mercies

I love lots of different types of music. So many emotions can be expressed through music.  I like listening to the words and trying to picture what the writer is painting with the lyrics.   Depending on where I’m at on life’s journey, I get different pictures from the same song at different times.  That happened…

Quietly Hidden

Quietly Hidden

If you had asked me if I liked being in control my response would have quickly been NO! Even my temperament says that I don’t have a desire to control myself or others. I’ve been talking with others and reading some stuff recently that God has used to open my eyes to ways I do…

My Food Confession

My Food Confession

People that know me know that I have an interest in tasty and healthy real food.  I read a lot about how different foods can be used as medicine and about the different food trends of today.  I really enjoy reading about and cooking things from scratch verses buying pre-made items.  While I don’t think…

What Exactly is Life Coaching…and Who is it For?

What Exactly is Life Coaching…and Who is it For?

I was introduced to coaching through a small group setting.  For several months we journeyed together and the process of self-discovery was life changing.  I identified some areas of my life that were keeping me stuck and I wasn’t sure what exactly to do with them.  After the small group coaching ended, I continued meeting…
