The Fruit

It’s time for me to get some of my trees cut down. I’m from California and cutting trees down isn’t something I’ve ever thought about. We were taught to love and conserve the earth. So getting trees cut down, even if it’s to protect my and my neighbor’s property, is a hard pill to swallow. While searching and learning about the tree cutting process, … Read More The Fruit

One Hundred

This is my hundredth blog post! Please take a moment to celebrate with me! In this blog I’ve shared 100 ways God has transformed me over the last 4 years. There were times when I was reluctant to press publish or didn’t share on my social media pages because my posts were so vulnerable and so raw. But now, vulnerability comes more easily and … Read More One Hundred

Strong Women

Study What’s Real

Oftentimes we find ourselves in many different kinds of relationships. Some work for us and others don’t. Because of the complexities of relationships, sometimes it’s difficult to tell what’s real from what’s real nice but not a good long-term match. Over the course of the last week, I’ve heard a sermon and read a devotional that further illustrate this point – it’s only through … Read More Study What’s Real

Let There Be Light

I used to live in the dark. I bought dark furniture, I felt safest in dark rooms….and I lived in a room without a window that let the outside world in. I felt safer that way, protected even, and as long as I was in there, there was no way anyone could get me. Once I began to transform, I no longer found safety … Read More Let There Be Light

The Difference Between Sex & True Intimacy

I used to think sex was the only way to intimacy. When I was having sex, the most enjoyable part was the physical contact I had with the other person. My skin on his, our bodies pressed together, and the vulnerability of it all. Now that I’ve been celibate for some time and have learned to enjoy intimacy outside of sex, I’ve realized that … Read More The Difference Between Sex & True Intimacy

Accept The Blessing

I have a really hard time accepting help. For so long I’ve had to go at it alone and because of this, I’m used to doing things by myself. After years of operating this way and slowly transitioning into roles that require greater support, I found myself burnt out realizing I should have asked for help. Lately I’ve been trying to unlearn this. When … Read More Accept The Blessing

Ring

Years ago after I’d gotten out of a relationship I decided to give my ex a different ring tone. It was different than all of the other calls coming though because I wanted to make sure I didn’t miss the call. I subconsciously waited for the phone to ring. It never did and I never heard that ringtone again. Sometimes it can take a … Read More Ring
