This morning I was reminded of something I heard Bob Goff say at a conference last year. He talked about how Jesus sees us for who we are becoming. Not for who we were, not for who we currently are. He sees us for who He’s making us to be. This struck a deep cord … Continue reading Who You Are Becoming
It can feel difficult to fully step into who you were created to be. Believe me, I know. Things like risk, fear, shame, confusion or other challenges can muffle our ability to listen to our soul or pay attention to the unique longings and passions God put inside of us. As I’ve spent the past … Continue reading What Were You Made to Do?
I’ve mentioned a handful of times in my writing that I’ve been invited on a journey to find my own voice. Of course this means I’m practicing finding my writer’s voice, but really what I’m doing is finding my soul’s voice. Many factors have contributed to my not knowing what my soul’s voice sounds like. … Continue reading On Finding My Voice

Some of us connect through art, some through music or singing, some through nature and so on. Since I believe we are all created uniquely, this makes sense to … Continue reading Experiencing God and Showing Up
It is news to no one that I am imperfect. I fail in countless ways to love those around me, to give myself grace, to be patient with my kids, to not get angry, to be self-less rather than selfish. I desire so much more from myself, but I am incapable. But this morning I … Continue reading Understanding Anew
Yesterday as I thought about starting to write more seriously again, I allowed my mind to enter into dangerous waters. The swirling waters of comparison. The voice of defeat was deafening within. Who am I to think I can write? What do I have to say that hasn't been said already? And said well at … Continue reading Swirling in Comparison
