A Beautifully Uncertain 31-Day Challenge: Week 4

Welcome back to the Challenge, everyone! I thought it might be good for everyone to have a couple of days off to reflect on how far they’ve come so far…so technically, this is a 28-day challenge but we’ll keep using the hashtag #31DayChallenge for the sake of conformity.

Day 25: Face a Fear

Okay! On to the business of Day 25!

In Beautiful Uncertainty, you’ll read about a very funny moment (at least it’s funny NOW, it was » Read More

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 Two

I hope everyone enjoyed Week One of the challenge! I have to say…I think I’m even more excited about Week Two!!!!

To recap: I decided to do things a little differently in 2016. This year, I’m inviting you to ditch the resolutions and instead start a New Year’s REVOLUTION with me, in the form of achieving one very simple, attainable goal each day. Since so many of us are in seasons of waiting (waiting for love, waiting for » 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. And while those these great, big, giant goals are great…they might start to feel a little daunting after the glow of the shiny new year wears off. Because I’ve literally only kept like one resolution in my entire life (to » Read More

Dash of Sass: Palms Up. Palms Open.

A reader reminded me of this quote from my book “I’ve Never Been to Vegas But My Luggage Has” over the weekend and I wanted to share it with you guys along with a revelation I received a couple of days ago. During my prayer time the other day, God reminded me that the posture for releasing something and the posture for receiving something else is identical: Palms up. Palms open. Not clenched tightly together » Read More

Endings…& Beginnings

I’m leaving the ranch.

For those of you who follow my Instagram feed, you know that for the past year I’ve lived at a peaceful little ranch (the road to the ranch is pictured in the photo here) out in the country that is almost too beautiful to be real. And you might be surprised to learn that I’m leaving, given how much affection I have for this place, this magical place, that saw so many ups » Read More

40 Days of Surrender

As a follow-up to 40 Days to Feeling Good, my dear friend Caroline and I have decided to kick off 40 Days of Surrender, and we want to invite all of YOU to join in with us! Basically the goal of this process (for me, at least) is to learn to loosen my grip on the things that I can’t control (which is most things). To stop trying to force and manipulate and endlessly overthink life and » Read More

Dash of Sass: Winter Won’t Last Forever

Sometimes winter…either the literal winter or the winter of our souls…feels like it’s going to drag on forever. Stripped as bare of our hope as the trees are of their leaves, we start to question whether we will ever feel truly ALIVE again. But in the quiet, in the stillness, underneath the surface…things are happening. New life and possibility and growth is being stirred. We can’t possibly see it now, but there will come a » Read More

Ten Lessons You Learn in Your 30’s

As most of you know, 2014 saw the release of my second book, I’ve Never Been to Vegas But My Luggage Has…which is essentially my life story.

As much as I love my first book, The Single Woman, (and I do love that book, with all my heart) #NeverBeenToVegas is and will always be particularly special to me. It is essentially my heart, my LIFE…poured out on pages for the world to see. And I never dreamed » Read More

Day 17: What Are Your Spiritual Beliefs and How Do They Impact Your Relationships/Relationship Status?

My spiritual beliefs are pretty simple. Jesus is Lord. And it impacts every single thing that I do, big or small…simple or complicated. You know how at the end of The Wizard of Oz, Dorothy turns to the Scarecrow and says: “I think I’ll miss you most of all”? Well, I think my walk with Jesus impacts my love life most of all.

God has saved me from toxic, damaging relationships. He has protected me from » Read More
