Broken Creation

I am a broken creation, living and choosing with past information, informing my actions with skills I’ve learned that have seen me through before.

Reacting to the dangers I can manage, relying on myself to find the safety in the passage.

And I know this part; it once gripped my heart in a cage of …

Singing Over Us

Zepheniah 3:17 tells us that God “exults over us with loud singing”.  According to Psalm 42:8 His song is with us even when we sleep.


I feel like I’ve been doing the same thing over each of my children from the moments they were born. It can be a celebration… a random …

Best Lines – The Greatest Artist…

“What if I told you that you are God’s poetry? You were created because someone else was creative.”

– Jefferson Bethke, “The Greatest Artist of All Time”

PowerPoint Confessions

Excuse me, God, I apologize…. you lost me about three slides ago, and I’m following the context of this presentation without really getting the lingo.

Five Minute Friday – She

This is my first attempt at the Five Minute Friday challenge. It’s simply a five minute minimally edited response to a single word prompt. The word this week is “She”.

She Go

I’ve been wondering what my mother meant on Saturday when she pointed to my 9 month old daughter …

Best Lines – “B”

“…there’s nothing more beautiful than the way the ocean refuses to stop kissing the shoreline no matter how many times it’s sent away.”

Sarah Kay, “B”

Showing Up for Creativity

I was walking through the factory the other day thinking that my creativity feels a bit low this week, and wouldn’t it be nice if inspiration would keep up with my schedule.

As I walked through the audibly chaotic environment, the Bible in my lower cargo pants pocket was thumping against my leg with …

Posture Matters

As I stood in church last week, I found myself with empty hands… an unusual occurrence for a mother of 8 month old twins. Our church is our village… the kind of village that every young mother longs for, but that seems to be increasingly difficult to find outside of spiritual communities.


Our church …
