A Kiss From the Sun

There was a contest this summer on My Faith Radio where writers were encouraged to submit stories about when they first learned about love.  As one of the finalists, I got to fly out to Minnesota (where I was the only one with a Texan accent) and meet other writers…

November Book Giveaway

I admit it: I have a problem with books.  I buy multiple copies of ones I love and hand them out like a modern day Book Fairy.  As a way to thank you guys for holding hands with me on this journey (which I truly, truly appreciate), I want to…

Failure is a very Good Option

Do you remember the hilarious and fun rhyming children’s story Captain Bubblebeard? You know the one where the mom would take her boy all covered in dirt and gelatin dessert straight to the tub from digging grubs.   She would plop! slop! drop! him in a tub of bubbles so…

I would love to hear from you…on Thanksgiving

The strange skulls and pumpkins holiday is done and we are in the first week of November.  These things, plus the fact that it will only reach a high of 80 degrees in Texas this week means it is official:  the holidays are right around the corner!  For a festive…

Tight Jeans and Jesus Bows

After months of experiencing some unusual symptoms, I decided to do what any crazy person would do:  I googled them.  Like chasing a greyhound around the track, one symptom leads to another and my palms are sweaty, knees weak and arms heavy…wait, that’s an Eminem song…  Anyway…

I have three friends sisters that understand a crippling fear I deal with.  With my husband, and now all of my readers, it will be six total at the end of this post. I will be swimming through my day, my life and enjoying the feel of the water and…

I Wish I Could Take Dad To Walmart

There was always a question my dad would ask me that would strike fear in the deepest part of my heart and cause ice water to course through my veins: Will you run me to the grocery store?    The problem with that question is that there was no running Dad…

October Book Giveaway

I admit it: I have a problem with books.  I buy multiple copies of ones I love and hand them out like a modern day Book Fairy.  As a way to thank you guys for holding hands with me on this journey (which I truly, truly appreciate), I want to…

I’m Not Mad At Pam Tebow Anymore

‘If you don’t get in the car right now I might kick your butt.’  I spoke steel into these words to my oldest child.  Butt is a bad word in our house with our littles so this was just my way of cussing.  And throwing a fit.  I kept…

Armed and Dangerous

I am treading dangerous, shark-infested water on this post while also wearing a chum necklace and socks made out of chicken skin. The word politics may come up and that could be all you see if that is all you want to see but this post isn’t about…
