I read something one day about writing our own psalms by taking the format of many of the Psalms (eyes on the problem and self and then moving the focus to God and ending in praise), and decided to try it out. The word “why” screams within my soul, battling the truth of Your Word.... Continue Reading →

When Life Causes You to Spin

As a child it was so fun to spin until I was dizzy and then attempt to walk without falling down. At 40, getting dizzy is easier than ever and nowhere near as fun as I remember! Knowing how difficult walking, or even staying upright is when you’re dizzy, I’m always amazed when I see... Continue Reading →


  Broken. Merriam Webster defines it as “violently separated into parts” or “damaged or altered”. Have you ever felt this way? As if your very heart were violently wrenched from your chest and torn into pieces? It’s so raw and physical you can’t believe that anyone could look at you and not see it. It... Continue Reading →

There'll be days your heart... Continue Reading →

The Word

In following many different bloggers, and just reading Christian writings across the internet in general, I was introduced to “the word”. One word that a person would focus on throughout the year, and allow God to speak to them through. Words like compassion, trust, grace, less, follow, etc. The word served as an inspiration and...

A Love Letter to my Father

I look at the amazing masterpiece that you have created and marvel at how you brought so much beauty out of the wreckage of my life. There were times I absolutely could not see your hand in my life no matter how hard I looked. I felt abandoned, rejected, alone... But I never was. You were... Continue Reading →
