Are you Reading Books on Purpose?

Amelia Bedelia, Sweet Valley High, Nancy Drew, and the Choose Your Own Adventure series were so much fun to read as a child. Into adulthood, Mary Higgins Clark and Danielle Steel were my favorite authors. As a mom of a toddler, Sandra Boynton was our “go to”! THE KID wore out…

Are you tired of waiting on God?

Have you ever tried to grow out your bangs? After months of struggling with the “too long BUT too short phase”- give up, have your hairdresser cut them, (or cut them yourself? SHHHH don’t tell!) and immediately regret it! If you just held out through the “I hate them and will fix…

1 Tip To Believe You’re Already Amazing

I’m gonna be “Straight Up” Paula Abdul style with you! Rubber meets the road, pedal to the metal, and no turning back. I remember like it was yesterday. I was walking down the hallway, strutting like a Peacock with its feathers fluffed out. I was ON POINT!! (I don’t know what…

How to Add Value to the People You Meet

Laundry! Eat Candy! Wear Yoga pants all day and don’t DO Yoga! As someone who’s trying to figure out what I want to be when I grow up, those are just a few of the answers I want to say when people ask me, “What do YOU do?” Self consciousness creeps in…

The Best Way to Overcome your Burdens

As a child, I thought Jesus liked His eggs sunny side up. I never understood biblical metaphors like Psalm 23:1 “The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want.” I don’t want the Lord to be my shepherd?  (It’s a good thing I was a cute child!) Psalm 23 goes on…

How Do You Measure Up To The Truth?

Do you carry around a measuring stick? Last Friday I introduced you to Kaye Wilson. She is a beautiful, intelligent, well-educated, capable woman. She has 5 wonderful children, plays the piano, speaks french, and is a certified parenting coach. (which means she literally “knows” how to parent, right?) If I put…

Who Do You Trust With Your Heart?

Have you ever participated in a team building exercise that encourages trust? Fall backwards and people will catch you. Put on a blindfold and have someone guide you along a path? No thank you! The only blindfold I wear is my sleep mask. (Have you tried a sleep mask? I can’t sleep…

What do you hope for in your life?

There are many things I’ve “wished ” for over the years. I’ve wished for straight hair and for Kirk Cameron to be my boyfriend. I’ve wished I was taller, shorter, younger, older, smarter, and cuter. I’ve even wished for a pony! There’s an old song written by Dusty Springfield that goes,…

How to Sow Good Seed in your Life

The moment I heard the phrase “Good Seed”, my brain started firing on all cylinders! (Hard to do without SUGAR!) How do you determine “good seed”? I asked my Dad since he works in the seed business. (I Promise…I didn’t even plan it to work out this way!) He said, “Through…
