But Are We Really Living?

One of the greatest tragedies in life is to be alive, but not really living. As I’ve experienced over the past couple of weeks, sometimes our fears and anxieties about the things we can’t control in life keep us locked up in a self-made prison of merely existing and going through the motions of each… Read more »

Finding Courage in Unlikely Places

Whew! It feels good to be done with my TEDx talk. Sometimes taking a risk and doing something we’re afraid to do builds a whole new level of confidence and strengthens our faith in God’s plans for our lives. I’ve never worked harder on a project. I gave it my all and now all there… Read more »

Choosing the Right Mindset

Hi! Thank you so much for your encouragement and prayers about my health. Both the stress test and echocardiogram came back normal, which is great, and the chest pains have subsided quite a bit. More and more I’m thinking the pain could’ve been related to stress and anxiety. So that’s something I’m more consciously trying… Read more »

Wake-Up Call

Hi There! About a month and a half ago I woke up with serious chest pains that worsened when I breathed in the cold air. I was scheduled to speak the next day, so I was a little worried the pain wouldn’t go away before the event. To be on the safe side, I went… Read more »

Sharing YOUR Story

Hi There! I’m coming off of a mountain top kind of week after an incredible speaking event in Florida for Keller Williams. The uplifting experience couldn’t have come at a better time.

The Shack

This past weekend I went to see the movie, The Shack. It’s one of my all-time favorite books. I remember exactly where I was when I first read it. I was on a cruise with my late husband, Andrew, and his family, and I couldn’t put it down. If you haven’t read the book or… Read more »

Laughter is the Best Medicine

Hi There! Who doesn’t love to laugh? I once read a quote that said, “Laughter is the best medicine.” Being able to laugh with my late husband, Andrew, even during the most difficult seasons of life, helped me get through some painful moments. I remember listening to Ellen Degeneres’ book, Seriously…I’m Kidding, with Andrew on… Read more »

Supporting One Another

Hi There! Have you ever had a conversation with someone that made you feel like you weren’t all alone and that what you were feeling was normal? This weekend a friend asked me to reach out to someone who’d also lost a loved one to cancer because he was having a really hard day. (In… Read more »

Living with Clarity

Hi Friend! Happy belated Valentine’s Day! Hope you got to do something special with the ones you love! Ellie and I are celebrating tonight since yesterday was my Day 30 of the Whole30 and mama’s cravin’ some sushi! I have to tell you, I set out on this Whole30 challenge with the intention of creating… Read more »
