*These are my own opinions. This is not an ad for a product or company. I was in no way solicited or paid for this post (because let's be honest - they'd likely pay someone with a little more clout).* Last week, I posted about stumbling across a local nonprofit business called Oluna while watching… Continue reading An unsolicited plug for a local business
*I am not a historically religious person, nor am I in any way a Biblical scholar, so please forgive my elementary interpretation of all things theological in nature as I attempt to educate myself.* Yesterday marked the first Sunday of Advent, the 4 Sundays before Christmas that focus on waiting and preparing for the coming… Continue reading Hope (an Advent post – kind of)
When your body is ready for dessert - go ahead and have a small amount of all three.
My friend, Ticcoa Leister wrote an amazing memoir that I have read a total of 3 times now. It is her story of the journey out of the despair that came when those in a position to build her up and empower her on her path instead told her that her dream was not for… Continue reading Like memoirs?
Two things are going on in this post. One is that I signed up for the #30day10k writing challenge though the Writing at the Red House group, and as such, am committed to a whole lot of writing this month; but I'm not really feeling my manuscript today, so a blog post it is.

When first I abandoned this site, it was but a wee baby blog with a few scratch the surface posts and a handful of views. Shortly after the world went crazy in March, I put the whole thing (and most everything else in life that wasn't essential for pure survival) aside and went on full… Continue reading A Brief Recap as We Prepare to Move Forward
I have done this site a huge disservice. There are no fewer than 4 posts in draft form that will likely never see the light of day. I've recently been reflecting on what I want my site to be, and while I still want this to be a place focused on social justice and personal… Continue reading Coming Soon…
And if you feel fine, you either heavily delusional, or you are a much better adjusted person than 99% of the population - myself included. Seriously, what in the actual hell is happening? Two weeks ago, I was on Spring Break at a ski resort in Colorado with my family, hearing about this new virus… Continue reading It’s the End of the World as We Know It
Let me introduce you to my best friend, Jen Hatmaker. I've never actually met Jen, so she doesn't know we're best friends, but we have so much in common that if we ever do actually meet in person, I'm pretty sure it'll be a BFF at first sight kind of situation. I honestly cannot remember… Continue reading I’m on a Launch Team… Whatever that means
