Overcoming Perfectionism: Chatting with Sarah Bagley

Is perfection something you struggle with? Do you fear failing more than you crave experiencing joy in the journey?   Sarah Bagley and I have quite the rich conversation about how to overcoming perfectionism and move past fear of failing, or falling . . . as I share about my daughter’s first spill in horseback riding! But that’s not all we chat about. We consider what it looks like to mentor the next generation (my heart, as you know) as well as the process that happened behind the scenes in how Meet the New You came to be. Click on over to […]

What Happens When We Wait

God accomplishes much in the waiting!

Impatient may very well be my middle name. When I get an idea in my head, I move on it. When I have an opinion, I speak it. When I conceive of a way things can be improved, I go right to work on the major components to bring about change. While this passion and vision may be strengths of my personality, they can also become the source of chaos and conflict. When we don’t take time to wait on the Lord for His leading, we risk living with much regret. Click To Tweet This is a lesson I’ve learned […]

Healing Brings Hope

God's Healing Hope

Today, September 1st, officially marks a brand new routine for me, as I kissed the kiddos goodbye and watched them drive off with their daddy to their brand new school. It’s up to me to get breakfast on the table before they stumble out the door and prep for dinner, as the 6 o’clock bell isn’t going to summons us up to the dining all anymore. Nor can I take a break from my work and saunter up to lunch to get my social fix. It’s me, myself, and I . . . and the dog . . . every day […]
