The Gratitude Groove

Lately, I'm trying to get into the "gratitude groove." What's that, you ask? To me, it's a way of life in which I'm continually praising God. It's the practice of remembering, every single day, to praise God for new blessings, and for those blessings that I experience every single day. There is one notable way... Continue Reading →

Different, Yet Beautiful.

For the past two years, I spent Independence Day watching fireworks on the rooftop of my apartment building.   I loved being a a part of the city life, of having access to so many events at my fingertips. It was a total gift to be able to invite friends over for the 4th of... Continue Reading →

Single Sundays-The Gifts of Singleness.

In times when we believe that we're (finally) going to start growing our bank accounts, it just doesn't happen. But you know... Continue Reading →

A Rain of Heavy Blessings

Suffering in life seems to come all together. It comes in twos, threes, fours...I am reminded of Job, who lost nearly everything all at once. Yet I never considered that blessings also came this way. And the reality is, many blessings can also seem burdensome. Think about the parents of twins, triplets, or more: a blessing, for... Continue Reading →

A Season of Trust and Transition

I am amazed at the quick transitions in people's lives lately. One friend, just over a month ago, was at a crossroads and had no idea where to turn. This week she told me that she is settled in at graduate school! Another friend had thoughts of moving, and was led quickly to affirmation that she... Continue Reading →
