Days Six & Seven: Loving & Losing

I’ve been so busy this past week, I’ve fallen a bit behind on the challenge, so I’m combining Days Six and Seven 🙂
Day 6: In Chapter Four of You Are Enough, I share my journey of “Looking for Love,” and how a dating app helped shake up my romantic life. Share your thoughts about online dating or an experience you had while doing online dating that made an impact on your life.
Day 7: In Chapter Five, I » Read More

Days Four & Five: You Win Some, You Lose Some

I missed Day Four yesterday so I thought I would combine it with today!
Day 4: In Chapter Two of You Are Enough, a phone call one Monday morning changes the course of my entire life and my family’s lives. Share a time that you received life altering news, good or bad, and how it impacted your life.
Day 5: In Chapter Three, “Your Life Will Be Different, But It Will Be Amazing,”I talk about how life can » Read More

Day Three: Losing…and Finding…Myself

Day 3: In Chapter One of You Are Enough, I talk about how sometimes it takes losing yourself to find yourself. Share a time you felt lost, and how you got “found.”

I’ve lost my way A LOT over the years. I’ve documented a lot of my lost seasons right here on my blog and in my books. But I want to go back to a very special season of “lost-ness” that without which, there wouldn’t even » Read More

Day One: A Meaningful Imprint

Day One: In the Introduction of #YouAreEnough, I talk about my “Enough” tattoo and why it was important to me to have this word imprinted on my wrist. Talk about a tattoo you have that is meaningful to you…or if you don’t have any tattoos, the tattoo you would get if you were going to get one.

Since I’ve already shared the story behind my “Enough” tattoo, I thought I would share the story of another tattoo » Read More

The “You Are Enough” 30-Day Blogging Challenge!

I did “The Single Woman’s 30-Day Blogging Challenge” a few years ago and it was a big hit, so I wanted to do another one in conjunction with my new book, You Are Enough. Except this time around, we’re not focused on our singleness, but on our “enough-ness.” Our sense of worth. Our ability to love and accept ourselves, just as we are. The goal by the end of the thirty days would be for » Read More

Scary, Beautiful, Necessary Change.

Some things are going to be changing around here.

I’ve been feeling a stirring, a restlessness, in my spirit, for some time now. Like I was ready for a change. A shift. A new direction. Not just in my writing but in my LIFE. I’ve been writing about singleness for six years now. I’ve explored it from just about every angle possible. I’ve written one self-published and three published books about it. I’ve loved sharing my » Read More

The Fantasy vs. The Reality of Being a Writer (Part One)

This post has been a long time coming. It’s not my typical blog post, so I have no idea if anyone will even read it…but I feel like this topic needs some serious clarity not just for me, but for all writers and all those who hope to be writers. I can only speak for myself and my experiences, of course, but I believe that surely there must be some universal truths here for all. » 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

Dash of Sass: Let’s Stop Trying to Be Right & Just Be Real

I’ve been in a bit of a creative slump lately that has definitely affected my writing and tweeting and posting. I’m not sure why, but every summer around this time, I hit a creative wall. And because I don’t really have anything brilliant to say, I stop saying anything at all. When I saw this beautifully perfect quote by Brian Andreas, it occurred to me that perhaps I don’t have to say anything brilliant. Or » Read More

Dash of Sass: If You’ve Been Looking for a Sign…This Is It

You know the scariest part of starting to write a new book? (Or blog, or post, or speech, etc. etc.) That moment just before I actually begin. When I’m staring at a blank page that I have to fill with words and I feel absolutely terrified that I’m going to fill the page with the WRONG words, or that my brain is just going to stop working and I won’t have any words at all. » Read More
