Freedom from Shame- Freedom Series part 2

I looked in the mirror and I felt it. The shame my body told me to believe. I looked at this girl and saw her. Not the body at first, but her.

Freedom Series – part 1

It’s ok to grow “quietly”

I have a favorite tree. I call it the Sentinel. It's huge and towering , stationed at the very end of our property, up a rolling field and at the top of a hill; standing guard; watching; observing; challenging any who might stray on to the property or any who may try to harm the … Continue reading It’s ok to grow “quietly”

#whatdoesyourheartneedtohear? YOU WERE BUILT FOR THIS!

What does your heart need to hear? YOU WERE BUILT FOR THIS. I was blessed enough to be able to go to RISE conference in Minnesota this year. Rachel Hollis is a wild fire and man, that girl can speak to your heart and make you get honest and intentional with yourself in ways many … Continue reading #whatdoesyourheartneedtohear?
