The World Needs You

The World Needs You

Ok. Some painful honesty today. I feel that it’s necessary. There are a ton of good things I can pull from the wreckage… but I wouldn’t be purely transparent if I didn’t tell this side too. I had a rough night. I crashed and burned. A repeating cycle I’ve relived...
Don’t Make A Wish

Don’t Make A Wish

How awful is it that we spend a lot of our lives making a wish and hoping it comes true? Could anything really be built on a wish? Much of Hollywood is built on this concept. I hope I’ll stumble into Mr. Right and he’ll pursue me even though I push him away. I hope...
More Than Flowers In These Weeds

More Than Flowers In These Weeds

Have you ever looked at a field of flowers and wondered… Do they question their purpose? Do they value their contribution to the world? Are they ok with just being pretty and then dying? It wasn’t until we started studying sustainable agriculture that I even knew...
Seeking You

Seeking You

Have you ever been around someone that you can feel their potential oozing from their being and yet they are bound so tightly by happenstance, self-hatred and blaming of others that they seem like they’ll never climb out? I have a few people like that in my life....

Have you ever had the nightmare where something bad is happening or someone is after you and you tried to call out for help or scream and nothing comes out? Your voice is just not there? The sheer terror of death is looming and you can’t even cry out for help…. Being...
My Broken Dream

My Broken Dream

Thrive…. what does thrive mean to you? If you were to allow yourself to actually dream without limitations right now… what would it look like? If money wasn’t the goal or the vision or the obstacle. Thrive, as a person. Some just can’t allow themselves to really...
Doubt Doesn’t Have To Destroy You

Doubt Doesn’t Have To Destroy You

The therapeutic nature of doubt. Why doubt doesn’t have to destroy you. For many years now, I’ve found myself questioning theology. As someone who was raised in Christian Theology that was layered on top of lots of brokenness and delivered by a manipulative and...
The Ultimate Goal of Goals.

The Ultimate Goal of Goals.

I have this goal in life…. The ultimate goal of goals. The thing that would make me feel like I have figured it out…. It’s simple and complicated. I want complete inner peace. I want to be the tranquil maiden standing on the water as the tumultuous waves of life crash...
Home

Home

I remember the moment I wrote this song. My husband was deployed and the 45th Infantry Brigade lost three of our guys in one day. Our brothers were broken over it. I laid on the floor of my living room tearfully sketching out words of sorrow. I witnessed dreams...
Truth

Truth

I learned a lesson one year that changed my thinking. It was essentially that I had control over what I let affect me. Now, this isn’t that foreign of a concept. Everyone thinks you have a choice but then we’re reactionary or silent and hurt. So what is it that causes...
