Fear has no real power,Yet fear can overtake you,Fear breeds second guessing while knowing what is… Continue reading Fear vs. Faith

Nor to exalt ourselves above others and say look at me, Or put our lives on display for all the world to see. Who are we except filthy rags washed clean by lamb's blood? Or wretches… Continue reading Pedestals

Last year, I stepped out in obedience and started an inspirational blog, FREE. It has been a labor of love, my therapy, and a place of encouragement. FREE has been a community and a platform for others to share their gifts to uplift others. It has taught me a whole new meaning of what it… Continue reading Happy 1st Year Anniversary!
I’m so far behind. I turn 30 this year and let me tell you, I won’t be making any “30 under 30” lists. Many of you can quickly see how unhelpful lists like that are. However, I did live my late teens and early twenties with a sense of big dreams and big ambitions just… Continue reading Step by Step
As I think about R.E.S.E.T...REST has been heavily on my mind. I was exhausted at the beginning of the school year because I'm an educator. Preparing the classroom, professional developments, lesson planning, adjusting, and getting to know my students had me ready for at least one day off! LOL. I was looking forward to being… Continue reading Rest for Your R.E.S.E.T.
