Letting Go of Comparing Myself to Others

February 1, 2016

I don't know about you, but the fact that today is Ash Wednesday makes me wonder where January went. I'm still finding stray Christmas ornaments in weird places around my house.
But regardless of the fact that I feel like Advent has barely ended, it's time to gear up and figure out what I'm sacrificing for Lent. [...]

A Call for Revival in the Catholic Church

January 1, 2016

As we walk into a new year, I pray that you feel as free as a fresh, unmarked calendar page. I pray that your relationships are healthy, authentic and satisfying. I pray that your connection to God is strong and your faith-based optimism is high. That's what the mountain top feels like, [...]

When a Nap Isn't Enough- Ask God for Guidance

July 1, 2015

Some days, everything just seems a little bit out of kilter. My three-year-old, Charlotte, had one of those days this week. We just COULD NOT GET IT RIGHT.

April 1, 2014

“For I have seen your face, which is like seeing the face of God.” Genesis 33:10

While the digital age connects us like never before, there is no substitute for face-to-face interaction. No email or Facebook message can ever compete with the joy of seeing someone's face light up when you enter the room. [...]

Why to Lean into Relationships When You Want to Pull Back

February 1, 2014

“There are those that speak a stabbing sword, but the tongue of the wise heals.” Proverbs 12:18
There's a space between words being spoken by one mouth, and those same words being received by another heart. En-route, those words often get misunderstood. This is where imaginations run wild and minds try very hard to fill in the blanks and understand. [...]

He Leads With Grace When He Offers Second Chances

September 10, 2019

Dear friend,
Have you ever had one of those days?
I was two seconds from purposely rear-ending the maddeningly-slow car in front of me. I had so much pent-up irritation, and I could just taste the satisfaction I would feel when our cars would hit and all the anger would exit my body. [...]

Where to Look in Scripture When You Need it Most

October 1, 2013

I received a surprise gift recently that brought unexpected comfort. Last April, my wonderful grandmother went home to be with the Lord, and we have greatly missed her. My mom received my grandmother's Bible, and tucked in it was a little note that she had turned to when she needed guidance from God. [...]
