Day 4: Support System

Lesbihonest, life is hard sometimes. Growing up is no easy joke when you’re simultaneously trying to juggle so many life pressures and find yourself and place in our getting – weirder – by – the – second world. This is why today (and everyday) I’m so thankful for my support system of parents, brothers, best […]

Day 3: Church Family

Sunday mornings are long days for me, but they are also one of my favorite days of the week. For the last two years I’ve been leading worship at our Gulfcoast campus in Biloxi, MS. After a sweet morning with my church family, today’s thanks must go to the many, many people who show up […]

Day 2 : Church Camp

I’ve written more about my church camp endeavors in earlier post Summer Camp. Today I got to walk down memory lane and attend the baby shower of a friend I met at church camp many moons ago. It was probably my favorite – summer – ever when I met Jenny. She was a needed breath of […]

30 Days of Thanks

I love this time of the year.

80 and Fabulous!

It’s this amazing woman’s 80th birthday today. My heart and head could never put into words how overwhelmed and humbled I am to be her granddaughter.

Blog Series List: Where to Begin?

I’ve been thinking of doing a blog series, or a few, lately. It’ll help post get a bit shorter since I often find myself writing novels (accidentally) and I like the idea of breaking a bigger topic into smaller sections for readers. I’ve got a list of series I’d like to write on, but am […]

The ups and downs of managing health and lifestyle changes

I’m trying to be one those healthy people. You know the ones you kinda want to punch (in the nicest way possible, of course). They make this healthy deal look easy and fun and so attractive. They make green smoothies for breakfast and dinner that actually look like a luxury my tongue doesn’t know how […]
