When Clichés Don’t Cut it Anymore

To Be Held

To Be Held

It was the fact that he wasn't wearing shirt or shoes that first caught my attention, not the fact that he held something in his arms. After all, it's not often you see a man walking the neighborhood barely dressed. Moments before I'd left the end-of-the-season...

Finding Your Way Out When Despair Takes You Down

Finding Your Way Out When Despair Takes You Down

My heart sank like a rock when I read the news. Another suicide. Another young life lost to despair. There was a time, not all that long ago, when I responded stories of suicide with a distant, judging indifference. How could someone do that? How could someone...

Searching For God’s Presence

Searching For God’s Presence

There was a time I didn't doubt God’s presence. When parents and Sunday school teachers told me God was real and good, I believed it. No question. After all, I could see evidences of Him everywhere, in the sweeping branches of the willow tree in the front yard and the...

TODAY IS THE DAY! Join the Relentless Book Launch Team

“This is your best book yet.” He said those six words with far more confidence than I felt. I wasn't sure I believed him. Moments later, we’d record what would be the first of the podcasts and radio interviews I’d conduct for this new book, the one he’d already read....

My 2019 Book List {Part 1}

If you've known me for any length of time, you know I'm a voracious book reader. I read every day. Every one. Without fail. It's my Netflix, my favorite snack, my guilty pleasure. Typically it's the first thing I do when I wake up and the last thing I do before going...

[NEW VIDEO] Some Rock Solid Truth To Stand On

The message showed up in my inbox in the middle of an ordinary Friday. One of hundreds that made it my way that week. Although I'm sure I miss a few here and there, I read every message I receive, over email, website, Facebook, instagram. Each word matters to me, the...

When Real Life Demands Real Courage

When Real Life Demands Real Courage

At least eight years ago, in a rare moment of courage, I made a list. I still carry it around in my purse, a three-by-five index card, hot pink, frayed around the edges, with a few simple lines of text under an audacious heading: "Impossible Goals." Underneath, I...

When You’ve Lost Your Footing

When You’ve Lost Your Footing

Two months ago, I shut down my blog. I logged out of my Facebook page, Instagram account, and Twitter feed. And I set up and out-of-office reply to my email inbox. Other than grocery shopping and keeping up with the news, I walked away from the Internet for 60 days. I...

A Return to Rest

A Return to Rest

I can always tell when it's time to retreat and rest. The signs are all too obvious: Impatience. Irritation. Easy offense and tears. I am not my best self when this happens. My emotional health is compromised, and I know it. Not to mention most everyone else knows it,...
