I’m a teacher! Why and how I switched careers in my later thirties :)

When God Redirects! It all started with some discontent. Ain't nothing like a lil holy discontent to mess up your life 🙂 . Allow me to take you back a bit. I quit college in 2006 because I was pregnant and single and I just couldn't manage the tragedy that was now my life. My …

I’m A Prophet… Now what? From revelation to acceptance.

I know, I know. I can hardly even admit it to myself sometimes. I can hear y'all saying, "well how she went from being a journalist to a prophet..." Same thing I ask myself. I'm a teacher now too... But hear me out. I'd stopped blogging because I was getting weary and confused. I graduated …

Seasons Change

As we witness nature transition so beautifully and effortlessly from fall to winter… We should all take a lesson from the trees.

SEASONS (I borrowed this picture from my church's website} The Tree in its SEASONS (I borrowed this picture from my church’s website)

I’ve been trying to understand where my fairly recent obsession with landscape photography came from.

I grew up in the country in a small town right by the ocean. I spent my childhood playing in the bushes, making mud pies and climbing trees. Most of my mornings were spent by the ocean, with my grandmother, watching the dawn break. (I sometimes look at my son playing video games or tapping away at his tablet and feel a tinge of guilt – my childhood was, by far, way more enriching than his – of course he’ll never think so 🙂 ).

Needless to say, I find my solace in nature. And so it’s not unnatural that I should want to capture it. I’ve almost exhausted what’s left of the fall foliage, now I find myself looking forward to winter…

Autumn Falls!

Re-Post Just Because it’s Fall 🙂

october3Lately, I have discovered I have a passion for photography. I don’t even know where it came from but  for the past few months, while walking back and forth to work, I have been overwhelmed by the beauty of God all around me and there’s a burning desire in me to capture it, similar to when I get inspiration for a poem. Unfortunately, I don’t have a “photographer’s camera”, it’s just me and my I-phone and I know nothing of lines, compositions, shutter speeds and ISO, so I’ve just been doing the best I know how until I can get a real camera and take some photography classes. ( P.S. Christmas is coming up and my birthday is two months later, if anyone wants to buy me a Nikon D3300 I will love you forever 🙂 )

And so, in this very difficult season I’m in (I like to call it my refinement process) I’m…

“What Would You Do If You Couldn’t Fail?”

I am a great writer. I KNOW that. I know that I can tell a story, write a poem or a song, get a message across, create, convince, coerce... I can work magic with my pen. It doesn't matter the subject matter or the forum, I can convey it and I can do it well. …

Give Your Gifts

I woke up this morning at 4:00 am to a bubbly seven year old, bursting at the seams with excitement, ready to open his gifts. I usually look forward to the joy on his face when he rips open a package and sees something he's been wishing for all year. The thank yous and hugs …

A Grateful Heart

“I would maintain that thanks are the highest form of thought, and that gratitude is happiness doubled by wonder.” G.K. Chesterton As I sit here listening to Grateful by Kurt Carr and feeling the love of God flow through me, I'm reminded of one simple yet profound truth: gratitude brings happiness. In fact, it is my …
