Cue ALL THE FEELS because this book right here is AVAILABLE FOR PRE-ORDER ON AMAZON!!! If, you too, are realizing life isn’t going as planned (does it ever?), I wrote this book for you. Because I want to know God is genuinely present in real life circumstances like busyness and loss and that awkward conversation with a friend. When I stop planning …

Some of you may have seen this teaser photo posted last week. As my valued readers and the ones I deeply appreciate, I want to share some exciting news with you. As many of you know, I attended SheSpeaks in the summer. I went to pitch a book proposal to a publisher. But God had other plans. The publisher I had a …

You know those people who invite inspiration simply by sharing the truth of their story? Christin Taylor is one of those women and I’m beyond thrilled to introduce her to you, as a friend and guest blogger. Christin is an incredible writer, author, professor, and all-around lovely soul.

Re:Write Conference Retrospective

Can I just say, Wow! I mean, W-O-W!

Attending Re:Write, was the most incredible conference experience ever!

Author wisdom, writing inspiration, life perspective, an ocean of new faces, abundant stories, it was all so overwhelming and deer-in-the-headlights-ish. Solid, yet simple reminders of how to persevere in the uphill mental battle of writing.

Drinking from a dozen fire hoses, is what it felt like!

Thank you for praying, for believing and cheering me forward. I need that. We all need that. Comfort blanketed as I stepped into the scared knowing there was a team of people waving a banner and ushering me into a dream. Thank you to amazing parents who helped us financially and savored time with our boys because they believe in being a part of my journey. Humble gulps, I swallowed them every minute of the weekend. Gratitude praise is what flows out now.
