Warring With the Word While Waiting – Encouragement and Instructions.

I just felt led to speak on something very personal to me that I feel is on time for you as well. You've heard it a million times. I've blogged about it a couple of times as well. Dear God When? When will it be my turn? When will you come and do for me …

A story of Courage in Affliction

I've been neglecting the blog. Although I'm sure no one really noticed. Word around journalism town is that blogging is on the decline. It's all about "the video" now they say: Facebook Live, Instagram Live, Persicope (maybe?) and YouTube. That may be so. Unfortunately, God gave me a desire and a passion to write and …

To 20-year-old me: “I saw the end.”

  Dear sweet broken-hearted girl, You are so smart and talented and brave. And above all else you are beautiful. You are a beautiful soul. No one has ever told you that. But if they did, you probably wouldn't accept it. You spend all your days avoiding mirrors just tearing yourself apart. Your not as petite, …

While You Wait… (Be of Good Courage)

Remember.... This resurrection life you received from God is not a timid, grave-tending life. It’s adventurously expectant, greeting God with a childlike “What’s next, Papa?” God’s Spirit touches our spirits and confirms who we really are. We know who he is, and we know who we are: Father and children. And we know we are …

Fighting the Good Fight – Moment of Transparency.

I hate to leave large gaps of time on the blog with no new posts because then it looks like the blog is abandoned. I really do want to blog more regularly but it's been difficult. Nothing comes. I think it is the season I am in. I feel like I am in a holding …

When Obedience Disappoints

A few months ago I made a move that I believed God was leading me to make and it failed... Terribly. I had my hopes built up, thought this instruction would lead me to an end result I was praying about for a while now. I prayed, fasted and obeyed but the move crashed.. And …

An Open Letter to A Sister in Christ:

I'll admit the image of you bothered me. Being around you always placed me on edge. It made me uncomfortable and uneasy within myself. I prayed about it. I know division is not of God and so for months I tried to figure out why. Why is it that I felt this aversion to you? You've …

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…
