4am Thoughts: Launching My Art Shop

It is 4:45am and I’m on the cusp of launching my art shop on Etsy. This feeling is unsettling because of the unknown. I have more questions than answers at this point. Am I doing the right thing? Is now the time? Will it be received well? Will my community grow? Do I really want […]

Sharing My Testimony on CBN

I was gifted the opportunity to share my testimony with CBN’s Turning Point International (TPi) program. Originally, when approached to share my testimony, I was nervous and wasn’t sure if I was ready to publicly share on such a large platform. I let my prayers lead me to saying yes and I am so glad […]

The Power of No

I wish I could paint the creative process that evolves in my head to accurately give you all insight into my world. In words; think of a large amusement park with many different attractions, zigzag lines, chaos and order, lots of colors, music, and so many options of rides.

I Am Who He Says I Am

The people in my life who really know me can attest to that fact that I am always encouraging them and random strangers all of the time. […]

Silent No More: Abuse

I remember being a single mother; caught in a whirlwind between healing from an abusive marriage and raising a newborn. My world was flipped upside down in so many ways. In that season I fully realized who held my world. That discovery of the depth of Jesus’s love for me was real. That kind of […]

Care-Less

In the art of transparency: I’ve spent too much time concerned with other’s thoughts of me. I’ve told myself, “I can’t because this person will be offended” or “I am not sure what they will say, so I won’t ruffle feathers.” I’ve jumped through hoops trying to accommodate people who honestly could care less about […]

When The Lights Go Out

Today I was in the midst of taking a shower after a fun workout with my daughter in the backyard. I was thanking the Lord for specific things when all of a sudden the lights went out (COMPLETE DARKNESS). I took a two second break and went back to thanking the Lord even through the […]

SIR

He fits my soul like a precise cut piece of steel, tested and true to equip the international space station! Ha, I am just being all-poetic, but I can do that because I am in love! I’ve reserved this portion of my life intentionally to allow myself to be present, to cultivate what we are […]
