Boldness

Today I was doing my write the word journal  and a verse that continues to speak to me was included in the today’s verses of Hebrews 10:35-39. After I wrote down the verses for today and moved on to the next page I became flooded with thoughts. I really feel that is the main purpose of the journal, to get you thinking…

Overwhelmed

I am typing this bundled up on my couch feeling sicker than I have in awhile, a double ear infection and a gnarly cold will do that to you. The word that has been constantly at the forefront of my mind in the last 8 weeks is OVERWHELMED. I am a person who doesn’t mind to busy and generally prefers…

Authentic

Authentic: genuine/real/true What does it mean to be authentic? What does it mean to live as your genuine/real/true self? When I hear the word authentic I define it as being the same you regardless of who you are with or where you are. The same character, the same values, the same beliefs. The back and forth between put together self…

The Beauty in Trying

I’ve been thinking a ton about failure lately and what that looks like and means. What I’ve come to realize is that the problem with failure is that we miss the beauty in trying. We often criticize ourselves for failing but we should be praising our ability to be brave enough to try. As a parent I am always telling…

Spirited Grace is the name I chose because it is something I want to have. The word spirited means full of energy, enthusiasm, and determination. I want to have…
