I am LOVING these highlighters I found on Amazon. They are more like a crayon than a marker. They aren’t ruining my pages, seeping through, or blindingly flourescent. I’ve used them already in a business-related book I’m studying, in my writing notes, and in my Bible. Just right!

2022 blessings, after all.
I sat this morning with my Bible and a highlighter in one hand and my phone in the other. I read, drew lines, and made notes, then switched over to my phone to share a few verses with a friend who is hurting. I then flipped over to Facebook to participate in a few conversationsContinue reading “2022 blessings, after all.”
Women. Compassion. Support.
“Do you follow her on Snapchat? Did you see her kids running and playing outside in the snow? She has two of the cutest dogs, but her cat video put me over! It was on her story. Her husband travels. Did you see how thrilled she was to pick him up at the airport? SheContinue reading “Women. Compassion. Support.”
Don’t stop dreaming.
I don’t believe in placing a moratorium on dreams. Dreams should be plentiful regardless of your age, how much money is in your bank account, or whether or not you went to college. I don’t care if you are fit and spry, arthritic and slow, or fat and happy. It doesn’t matter if you’ve gotContinue reading “Don’t stop dreaming.”
Worry vs. Faith
Sister, you can’t worry AND rely on faith at the same time. You’ve been worrying, and that’s fine. Now…enough of that. Remember that worry places focus on the worst possible outcomes. Faith focuses on desirable outcomes. Which should fill your head and heart? Lean on your faith, even if you only have a little.
Faith Over Worry

Exposure Therapy. Do y’all know what that is? It’s what it sounds like. It’s when you’re forced to do something, face something, experience something, to be able to move past it. You move past it by exposing yourself to it, then realizing nothing really comes of it as you had imagined might. *poof* It’s likeContinue reading “Exposure Therapy”
Writer. Author. Obstacles. Support.
I have always, always wanted to write a book. I still do. The feat of compiling 50,000+ words into a succinct, meaningful read, holding in my hands the actual book with a glossy cover, seeing it on a bookstore shelf, finding it offered for sale on Amazon, getting an email from someone who was inspiredContinue reading “Writer. Author. Obstacles. Support.”
Embrace doing nothing.
Overachievers, Workaholics, and People Pleasers, listen to me… You are NOT doing nothing. This weird week between Christmas and New Year’s Day, know that if you use your downtime to sleep, read, watch TV, work a crossword puzzle, sew, eat cheese, sit and stare out the window, whatever, you ARE doing something. You are resting.Continue reading “Embrace doing nothing.”
Reflections of 2022…yep, I think many of us are in the process of looking back over the last year lately, either consciously or subconsciously, and taking an inventory of life’s events. We are reminiscing fondly with a warm smile in our hearts, or we find ourselves visibly wincing as we recount the unsavory. For me,Continue reading “Goodbye, 2022.”
