Some very personal thoughts on feeling powerless – come walk with me.

Can I tell you a story?…..one you might know some of….but not all of…one that you may never have heard at all. It’s a story just like everyone else’s….but I just really want you to understand where I am coming from. I think I suffer the most when I believe that I am powerless…when I […]

How to Heal – (from things that aren’t true)

A beloved in my life asked me this week…very simply…HOW DO YOU HEAL? I knew what she meant….I knew she was talking about some things that no one on the outside can see….but that have been tormenting her on the inside. WHAT I KNOW…from experience…is that we can spend weeks, months, YEARS, LIFETIMES trying to […]

I know this might seem like a crazy or uncomfortable or maybe even inappropriate subject during the holidays (or any other day, right?)…but please women, stay with me here……. there is a need….an […]

In all honesty….Mr. Ross and I overscheduled ourselves X100 for late summer and fall…………….and we are doing it….but goodness gracious do we ever need some down time around here….we are kind of exhausted….the happy kind….tired is tired so we are figuring out all sorts of ways to chill……FOR ME……I have learned all sorts of new […]

The truth about Soul Comfort….(because you have probably been lied to.)

Don’t you love how I hooked you into here with that juicy title? Well…have a read…. Have you ever been lied to? Probably. I’m going to just be bold and say…yes, of course you have been lied to, at some time or another in your beautiful life. Sometimes it’s hard to find comfort, especially the […]
