I've never liked writing "About Me" or "Bio" pages, yet here I am attempting to write something that will awe you and lure you into my world. The short version of me - I'm a mess. But I'm a beautiful, redeemed, free and forgiven mess. I have hurt others and have been hurt by others. I've done things I am not proud of. Even so, I am an overcomer. I am funny - like, hilarious at times; it's what keeps me sane. I am honest. I waste no time because time is precious and is not in our control. We've got one shot at this life - let's live it on purpose, with purpose and let's slide into our last day gritty and dirty knowing we left it all on the table!

Y’all, I threw yellow glitter at runners on Hollywood Blvd Sunday morning – on purpose! And it was incredible!! Get to know your community, your neighbors. Even if it’s out of your comfort zone – get out there and get involved. Meet new people. Get to know their stories. You will be amazed by how Read more about Throw Some Glitter[…]
I have always struggled with confidence. I remember as a child giving up on anything at the first hint of difficulty. I rarely believed in myself, although I did believe I was Wonder Woman most days of the week. Oh, the irony. Doing something wrong or making a mistake always equated to failure. So, instead Read more about Mistakes Are Proof That You Are Trying[…]
Have you ever had a real pow-wow talk with yourself? I just did. I had just finished reading my husbands post and began feeling a deep conviction. My inner Tam could not remain silent any longer, and she just put me in my place. It went like this: “You’ve always stood up for what Read more about Slow To Speak[…]
I had a fairly lengthy post planned around this verse, then I realized – there is no need to add to these words. They say it all. #LetItBeSo
Sometimes the smallest change can yield the greatest results. I got six inches of hair cut off last weekend, and I couldn’t be happier. I had no idea how much it would do for my spirit. It’s funny the more I think about it. You see, this last year has been incredible and incredibly hard – Read more about A New Do Was Due[…]
This is a personal promise I made to myself four years ago in regards to friendships; building them and keeping them. It can save a lot of awkward moments and hurt not only for me but others as well. It has freed me up, too. Instead of worrying what the other is thinking and trying Read more about It Isn’t Personal[…]
Back around the year 2000, Brent and I purchased our second home in Southern Oregon. We had lived in our first home for nearly four years. During that time we had a cat. She was an indoor/outdoor cat. I only allowed her outdoors because we backed up to a creek and we lived on a Read more about She Followed Her Heart And I Let It Go[…]
I exposed myself today. Kass and I went to a friends house to use their pool. They’re out of town, and we are checking in from time to time to watch over the house – and today decided to plop down in their backyard. I wore my swimsuit under my tank and pool skirt-thingy that, honestly, Read more about Reflection Rejection[…]
I’m a throw my hands up kind of gal. Especially, mostly, when it comes to all things technological. Even down to switching the Roku to apple tv. HDMI 1, 2, 3, oh my! OH! And directions. Goodness gracious, my destination could be at the end of a straight road, and I will still manage getting Read more about Figureoutable[…]
There are two types of people in the world. The person who finds a hobby, interest, a new job, and enjoys it and finds much fulfillment <<< Me.
Then there’s the person who dives into it with everything they’ve got. They live it; they breathe it, dream about it, they become it <<< Brent.
Brent has always been the latter. It’s why he has been such a phenomenal pastor all these years. He’s an all-in type of guy!
When we aren’t working on the The New Church Of Hollywood, Brent is driving for Uber and Lyft to supplement our donations. He typically leaves around 4 pm and is out until about 10 pm to 1 am, depending on the day.
The next morning he tells me all about it Read more about Suck It Up
