One is Enough

I will confess: one is rarely ever enough for me. One episode of Downton Abby on Netflix turns into binge watching an entire season. One minute checking email turns into an hour scrolling through social media. One potato chip....I mean seriously, who can do that?? The concept of one being enough is somewhat foreign to

Thoughts from an Author-in-training

The other day a friend asked me if writing a book is really any different from the other writing I've done? She knows that I've been writing church curriculum lessons for the past four years, contributing to devotionals occasionally, writing weekly blog posts, and getting to do some other cool writing gigs.

Aren’t We All Still A Little Like Teenagers?

I used to be scared of teenagers—even when I was one. And in full disclosure I still can get intimidated by them. Whereas preschoolers and elementary kids can be easily impressed with you simply because you are older and therefore, in their minds, an expert on things, teenagers are not. A teenager’s motto seems to

When You Just Can’t

I’m tired. Really tired. Like I just can’t do it tired. Usually by the end of summer vacation I am ready. Ready for a new school year. Ready to try out new Pinterest inspired lunches. Ready to be on top of the homework hustle. Ready to put on my chauffeur hat. Ready to get back

Spiritual Super Glue

Have you ever read the 3 John's? Those tiny books near the very back of the Bible with the clever names of First, Second and Third John? I will confess that I have never given those books much thought until I had to write several curriculum lessons from them. Even then I remember noticing a

About My Work

This blog serves as an online journal of sorts. It is where I go to process my thoughts and feelings. It is where I write about what it means to shine the light of Jesus in an ever darkening world. And it is where I record the beautiful glimpses of God’s extraordinary grace in the midst of my very ordinary life.
