‘God Sightings’ Amidst Travel Drama: Part 1

As I re-read my last blog post I now feel even more convicted about what happened during my trip (not so much during actually, more just the travel days). I was preachin’ to my own choir. Most of my problems on this adventure were still quite small in the grand scope of things but itContinue reading “‘God Sightings’ Amidst Travel Drama: Part 1”

7 Truths I Rehearse to Avoid FOMO and Anxiety

What if the plane crashes and I die? Lots of people travel for work all the time, I’ll be fine. I better just make sure things are in order, just in case though.

I’m Writing a Book

Sneaky Neglect and Digital Minimalism

I recently returned from a women’s retreat and came away with some pretty tough convictions. As a group, we watched this presentation given by Betsy Gomez from the 2017 Revive Conference. You can watch it below if you like, it is very good! Her message was inspired from the chapter in the book Adorned calledContinue reading “Sneaky Neglect and Digital Minimalism”
