My sister, Randi, is five years older than me. We fought harder than any two sisters and we loved harder than any two sisters. We have been each other's champions and loved to annoy each other. We laughed and put on shows in our living rooms and made some epic Barbie movies together. It may… Continue reading My Sister
As I was scrolling through Instastories last night, I stopped on this photo my church posted of someone worshiping. My heart swelled and I teared up as I saw this person, lost in worship. Then it hit me. Dude. That’s me. I’m not used to my blonde highlights or seeing myself from that angle. It’s… Continue reading Lost in Worship

I don’t know what grief you carry. But just know, if… Continue reading Grief

Later this month, I will celebrate a birthday. A big one. I will be turning 40-years-old. My last year in my 30s has reminded me I'm not as young as I used to be. I now have regular hot flashes and my body takes longer to recover after activity. I can get sore from simply… Continue reading I’m turning 40…
