When I began this blog a few years ago, it was at the suggestion of my (at the time) literary agent. Yes, I had an agent, and no, that children's book I wrote has still not been published (yet). I no longer have that agent, and I no longer spend hours looking at publis...

The fall air was crisp. The stomping of feet on the bleachers resounded. The football team huddled before the next play. My family sat a few rows up on the 30-yard line, my son in my lap trying to keep warm. He leaned back to ask me a question.

I figured it would be yet...

It was inevitable, but I'm so glad she was willing to trust me with what was burdening her heart.

Two girls my daughter called friends were being mean to another friend. She had been taught to do the right thing. She knew what they were doing was wrong. As she shared wi...

Perfectionism has plagued me all of my life. God must have some big lessons to teach me this year.

It's day 10 of 2019. Here's a glimpse of my year so far:

- A pile of laundry that has yet...

Ever bitten off more than you can chew? 

My puppy sure has. That puppy I said I wanted that would make my family complete. The puppy that has decided sheetrock in the corner of my kitchen isn't important. That puppy that thinks a window sill is a good chew toy. The pupp...

Summer. It's finally here.

In my former life (before kids), days of sitting on the beach and soaking up the sun and waves provided great relaxation and rejuvenation. Now I spend my time at the beach with a mind full of questions: Did I put enough sunscreen on the kids?...

“When you walk across that graduation stage in a few years, what one word do you want people to describe you as? For what do you want to be known?”

This question was posed to me in a college scholarship interview over 20 years ago. As a naïve, 17-year-old high school se...
