We read Jonah's prayer this week in my Friday morning women's small group: "Then Jonah prayed unto Jehovah his God out of the fish's belly. And he said, ' I called by reason of mine affliction unto Jehovah, And he answered me; Out of the belly of Sheol cried I, And thou heardest my voice.For … Continue reading In the belly of a fish.
Anywhere love can be found is where God is. All we have to do is look.
You guys! The coolest thing just happened. And I'm one of those people. The kind who think that things don't just happen. Maybe it's because I was an English major and have been trained to look for the symbolism and theme in everything. Or maybe it's because I believe in God, in the Universe, in … Continue reading What Does It All Mean?
I read this post on Elephant Journal this week about the 4 Phases of a Woman's life (as the author had been told). She writes:" These are the Playful Child, the Sexy Seductress, the Good Mother and the Wise Older Woman (WOW). I was told this as I was entering into the “Good Mother” phase. … Continue reading On the 4 Phases of a Woman’s Life

I've made quick ventures out of the house here and there, but I've mostly been house bound. It's fitting really. The cold weather. The time spent inside. It's a … Continue reading A Season of Waiting, A Season of Silence
What a weekend! Friday, I headed up to Boulder for the Resound Conference 2013 and heard some amazing speakers. More below. That evening, we went to the Stand for the Vulnerable event & got to hear one of our favorite artists live. A clip from the Josh Garrels concert is above. Saturday, we were up … Continue reading Weekend Warriors
We finally made it to church yesterday. It's been a while. I don't usually talk about it either. In fact, I don't think I've ever written about it, and it's only in whispers of perceived like minded people that I speak of going to church at all. I don't like the stigma behind "church" or … Continue reading On the Road to Motherhood
Hello. Again. I know I fell off the face of the Earth for the last 5 months or so. Well, not really. I fell into myself. I fell into a new rhythm, a new way of thinking, a new way of breathing, a new way of being. Because being pregnant is different. Not just in … Continue reading What I meant to say.
