Escaping the pit

Yesterday I had an opportunity to add a little fun to my daily workout routine, jumping at Area 51!  We came out to live a little and share the word in a fun, relatable way.  I got an amazing workout in while God took an opportunity to teach me an important lesson.  I often write...

What if they won’t go?

Have you ever had an idea that you knew unequivocally you needed to act on, but for one reason or another you didn't?  I know I have.  I remember when I "decided" to become a teacher.  While I was in undergrad I had the opportunity to volunteer at a local high school in my discipline...

Writer’s Block

Time heals all wounds, often stated rarely connected to one’s true reality. Suppose I just sit and watch the clock, tick, and tock to and fro. In time things do grow, if you intend them to, you know?

RESET 2.0 – Focus

Last year, one of my daughters got a much-needed upgrade to her phone (it was hanging on but still working).  Unlike everyone else in the family that upgraded, she was able to hold onto her old phone as it would not have garnered me much money to trade in, but we could use it as...

RESET…

Man, 2017 is drawing its final breath and closing out!  Are you ready?  Reality is, whether we are ready or not, the year is ending today and there is nothing we can do to change it.  I do not know about you, but my 2017 has been a roller coaster ride for real.   There... Continue Reading →
