You move away tomorrow. Not to go away to college or to go away for church camp, but to start your career and your adult life. LORD willing, this time next year you will be through the Police Academy and starting as a Rookie Police Officer. Other than (hopefully) the occasional overnight stay for holidays,… Continue reading Dear Daniel,
This tree in the parking lot of Kroger took my breath away today. I looked like a weirdo taking 1000 pics. I've struggled with how to put this story into words. If you grew up in a house like mine, you learned never to talk about good news because bad news was usually just around… Continue reading Miracle.
Grief is weird. Can we all agree? Just when I think I’ve unpacked and healed from trauma long ago, something small triggers it and I find myself spending hours grieving, unpacking, and laying it all down at the feet of Jesus all over again. 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…

A healthy relationship with food is something many of us have had to fight for and I would never want anything I say to cause you harm. And as I… Continue reading Let’s get real…
This September, we're celebrating something pretty big here at Not Today, MS. This September will mark five years since my MS Diagnosis. Five years of CHOOSING JOY over fear, anxiety, tingling fingers, vertigo, medication side-effects, fatigue, pain, worry and anger. We decided in September 2015 that this disease would not define who I am. That… Continue reading Not Today, MS 5K Run/Walk!
You're special. The ER doctor was doing her job. She was reminding me that I needed to do a better job of taking care of myself.

It had been five years… Continue reading “You’re special.” *My Salmonella Story.
