I remember how excited I was as we bought our tickets. Sitting in the car, watching the sky curl into itself as the stars began to pop out, just before the massive screen illuminated our faces with a soft flickering glow. To anyone else, it was another night at the drive-in theatre. To me, I was in … More HTWYL: Never Set Goals
Welcome back! I hope you all enjoyed your Christmases with family and friends. What did I get for Christmas? A full week off from work (i.e. time with hubs and lots of books). Thank you, Lord! Aside from the illness I picked up (on Christmas Eve no less), I spent a good chunk of time … More When Did Art Become an Equation?
It’s hard, isn’t it? Having everything you know function one way for so long and then suddenly you have to move, a loved one passes away, your friend betrays you, you lose your job; I mean, the list is literally endless. And it doesn’t have to be something nearly that big to make us resist: a … More Resisting Change

Two weeks ago, I began praying very specifically over different aspects of my writing and growing a ministry. It has been hard for me to get into a routine which included those important parts of my soul, with all of the transitions we have been experiencing between jobs, gyms, groups, and more. All I want is to … More I Serve a Venti-God [OR] The Journey to Come
I’m not a huge movie buff; don’t get me wrong, I love movies. But I was raised on a few VHS-tape classics (Indiana Jones all the way!) and never spent much time in the theaters because I was too busy with the adventure of my own life. Can I just add a side-note to say that whether … More Indiana Jones, Final Destination, …and Jesus?
Do you ever impress yourself with something you’ve written? For me, it comes when I’m looking back through scribbles in a notebook and suddenly, wow, did I actually have that thought? Who knew I could be profound? The exact second I have that pride-filled musing, I have to give myself a mental slap because it’s clear … More Book Week: The Highlight Reel
Success derives from indifference; at least that’s what society tells us. We don’t like to let our emotions run wild. Instead, we’d rather medicate ourselves into a bland state of mediocrity before our extremes get the better of us. Everything is designed as a sedative. The first time we express “too much” or “too little” energy … More Goldilocks Syndrome
June. Seriously? How did we get here already? I don’t know about you, but I’m in need of a quick pause. With time flying by exponentially-faster each moment, sometimes it really helps me to stop, take a breath, and reevaluate the last few months. Care to join me? *Inhale.* Breathe deep. Let your lungs fill. … More Take A Breath & Reevaluate
Another year has come and gone and what do we have to show for it? Plenty of shiny new things from Christmas a few days past, old memories, new scars. But now what? What do we do when a new year is on the horizon, when everything around you is focused on newness and change … More New Year, Same You?
