I have 2 confessions to make...


A friendly reminder, 
you can now find me at my new website:

The first confession is that I am a complete and utter wreck. No big surprise there, right? In fact, if we're honest with each other, I think we'll admit we are all in fact, absolute and complete wrecks.

Maybe the biggest surprise, however, is that I'm actually quite thrilled to admit that I am, in fact, a wreck.

The state of 'being a wreck' is not just messy. It's beautiful. It's also exhilarating; and exhausting. It's overwhelming; and confusing.

I feel completely and utterly raw. As if all of my nerve endings have been stripped bare and exposed to the elements.

I love it. And, I hate it - all at the same time. Talk about confusing, right?

Maybe this is what it feels like to be fully alive. Regardless, I have a lot of processing to do. And, as I do, I'll share as I'm able to, and what I hope will bless others.

It's been awhile since I've blogged. I am taking several writing classes, attending writing retreats & conferences, and processing all kinds of life experiences, both big and small. Saying I'm on processing overload is an understatement.

In addition to writing my first book, my goals are to (1) write shorter blogs (2) write more frequently (3) write more consistently, and (4) write to bless my readers.

Truthfully, I am on my computer every single day. Every day I sit down to write. And, every day you don't see a new blog appear are the days where my first confession has paralyzed my brain, my heart and my fingers.

I appreciate your patience and grace along the way as I sort all of this out. I have a deep passion for writing about life and all God is teaching me. I'm excited to see where God is leading, and trust even 'this' is part of my process and journey. [Anyone else relate?]

Oh, my other confession? I absolutely despise fuzzy die. [grin]

Keep pressing into the LORD, and KEEP LIVING A BLESSED LIFE!

Joy and grace,
