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.

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!

“I want to write a book someday, but I don’t have a story like yours.” I hear this a lot. I want to encourage you all with something…Just because you may never have had an affair, or you’re not widowed, or you’ve never had an abortion, or have never been cheated on, or whatever other “ohmyheart Read more about What’s Your Story?[…]
At the beginning of the year, when we knew we were going to have to step down from full-time ministry at our church, a friend asked me if we’d ever become missionaries. I was like, you mean… sell all your possessions and move to another country and adopt all the babies type of missionaries? No. I Read more about Never, ever, say never. Ever.[…]
That is crazy. Wow! That’s insane! Oh-my-word – I totally look “special“. These are phrases I have said more often than I care to admit. You see, I have become much more aware of my words. I am mindful to measure my words daily. Words are powerful – you can’t take them back. But most Read more about You Don’t Need To Tell Me I’m A Murderer[…]
When I get the chance to help someone launch their new book, I jump at it. I know how essential it is to have as much help and support as possible.

Y’all… we had no idea we needed this vacation as much as we did! Brent and I got back from a 12 day “vacation” about a week ago. And we have returned brand new people.

I went to the mall this weekend to pick up a few items for mine and Brent’s upcoming California trip. I went in to a cute little boutique that I have always admired.
