A Beautifully Uncertain 31-Day Challenge: Week Three

Who’s ready to tackle week three?!

To recap: I decided to do things a little differently in 2016 by I’m inviting you to ditch the New Year’s resolutions and instead spend this first month of the year achieving one very simple, attainable goal each day. Since so many of us are in seasons of waiting (waiting for love, waiting for marriage, waiting for babies, waiting for an answer to a prayer, waiting for a cure or a phone » Read More

A Beautifully Uncertain 31-Day Challenge: Week One

Heeeeeellllllllloooooooo, 2016!

By now you’ve probably made out your long list of New Year’s resolutions…a list you might even be staring at in dread, wondering what you were thinking when you set the bar so high.

Because I’ve literally only kept like one resolution in my entire life (to » Read More

Let the Sun Go Down On 2015

I snapped this picture of the sunset last night and it occurred to me as I drove into one of the last sunsets of 2015…What if we just let the sun go down on all our mistakes this year? Our losses?

Merry Christmas, Single Ladies…

My dear friends…it’s that time of year again when being single can…well, sort of suck.

If you’re feeling especially solo this Christmas, I’m here to bring you good tidings of » Read More

Getting Uncomfortable in 2014: My God Adventure, Continued.

“Dear Lord, please remove anything and anyone from my life that isn’t pleasing to you.”

It seemed like a good prayer at the time. I’m not sure WHY it seemed like a good idea at the time, since my friend Anetra gave me the idea and told me that prayer turned her whole world and year upside down when she said it back in 2006.

Ten Quotes to Start the New Year With Sass!

I decided that since we’re on the cusp of a new year, there was no time like the present to share my top ten favorite quotes from my book, The Single Woman: Life, Love, & a Dash of Sass. 2013 was a big year for me, as it saw the release my first published book…but I think 2014 has the potential to be an even BIGGER and BETTER year for ALL of us…in life, career, » Read More
