An Ode to Honesty

Posted by on Jan 31, 2014 in Be Whole, Featured Posts, Looking In | 0 comments

So I’ve been thinking about honesty lately, and what it means to be honest and what it looks like to be honest, really honest, and how that affects my life and so forth.  And frankly, that concept scares me a little.  Because if I was honest, really honest, then others would know I didn’t have my act together. For...

We’re Thankful……Right Now

Posted by on Nov 27, 2013 in Be Inspired, Be Whole, Looking In, Mom Perspectives, Things We Love | 0 comments

Tomorrow our nation celebrates Thanksgiving.  Regardless of what traditions you adhere to when it comes to the day, I think we can all agree on the fact that it’s a day where most of us reflect on the blessings that we have in our lives.  Whether it’s been a year of plenty, a year where ends have been a struggle to make meet, a year...

Mothering {Faithful Cultivation}

Mothering {Faithful Cultivation}

Lately I’ve been struggling.  This inner battle between contentment and resentment, joy and envy, worth and worthlessness has consumed me the last few months.  Becoming a mother was the best gift I’ve ever received, but making the choice to stay at home with my son has been harder than I imagined.  My busy, interactive, and multitasking life...

DETOX Social Media: The Dare to Unplug…even for just one day!

DETOX Social Media: The Dare to Unplug…even for just one day!

When Renae asked me if I would do a social media DETOX, I was hesitant. I know many people have serious issues with the self-loathing that comes from comparing ourselves with the mirage of social media, but I work really hard to keep it at bay. Even so, I know how it sneaks in and make you feel small and insignificant, and occasionally I let it beat...

Detox Week: It’s time to “get clean”

Detox Week: It’s time to “get clean”

It seems like everyone is “doing a detox” these days. Movie stars, Dr. Oz, that guy in your yoga class, your friend down the street…. Do I need to detox? I’m not an addict. I’m pretty healthy. Honestly, the idea conjures up images of seaweed smoothies, a bottle labeled “the ultimate colon cleanse”  and dropping loads of money at...

think on these things…

think on these things…

  Earlier this week, I spent some time talking to a small group of women about purity…in all parts of our lives. Sexual purity was the starting point, but we pushed it farther. What else sullies our thought life? What else distracts us? We made a list. An uncomfortable list.   Perfectionism. Anxiety. Jealousy. Food. Social...

Look for the gift. {Our Blessings Count!}

Look for the gift. {Our Blessings Count!}

Look for the gift. Sometimes gifts come in the guise of brightly wrapped packages, rattling with the trinkets that we put on our Christmas list. A new pair of gloves, the latest Food Network cookbook, or a gift certificate to a spa. Look for the gift. Sometimes gifts come in the form of blessings, the good that lies in our path like sparkling...

My mom’s better than your mom….

My mom’s better than your mom….

Becoming a mom took my crazy perfectionism up a notch. Maybe ten notches. I used to compare. Okay, maybe I still do. Who doesn’t? You know, that friend who sews her daughters beautiful, boutique-style dresses with matching hair bows for every special occasion; or the one who feeds her four year old Thai curry hotpot with a side of edamame, and he...

A Family Launch. {Being Purposeful}

A Family Launch. {Being Purposeful}

Be Safe.  Be Respectful. Be Responsible. At the school where I work, our principal ends his morning announcements with this over the intercom every morning, many teachers have their students say it together before they are dismissed from classes, it’s hanging above the doors in the building, and most students, from kindergarten through eighth...

Confessions of a Real-Life Messy Mom

Confessions of a Real-Life Messy Mom

On Saturday mornings growing up, my mom would stick her head through my bedroom door and say (much too cheerily and much too early for a Saturday morning), “It’s cleaning day, time to get up!” As I wandered around the house shuffling knick-knacks back and forth while I dusted, I remember my mom once proclaiming, “your house should always be...
