What to do if you’ve “lost your way”?

SING! At least that works for me when I’m feeling lost and need to get “back on track.”  The right music rights my ship.  Every time. These last few months have been rough on all of us.  I’ve had some great things happen – and definitely some not-so-great. And in the midst, I may have gotten a bit off course....[ read more ]


Recently I got to spend the day with more than 1,000 of my favorite people from around the world learning and growing and pouring into each other. It was Think Tank Day – kicking off a multi-day gathering (online) of John Maxwell Team coaches, speakers and leadership trainers. It’s always incredibly uplifting to be around this bunch of folks who...[ read more ]

What I’m Learning From Mickey Mouse – Guest Post

(a guest post from my husband that is definitely a gem for the rest of us!) My favorite Christmas gift from my wife is a picture of Mickey Mouse sitting on a stool smiling, paintbrush in hand, looking at himself in the mirror. To his right sits a wooden easel and sketch pad.  Mickey has painted enough that you can...[ read more ]

What’s your “limp?”  You may be surprised to discover you have one!

  Did you know July is Disability Pride Month?  It’s to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the passing of the Americans With Disabilities Act. I had no idea.  You probably didn’t either. ​“Disability pride” has been defined as accepting and honoring each person’s uniqueness and seeing it as a natural and beautiful part of human diversity. I’m pretty sure not too...[ read more ]


Happy 4th of July! I pray you have found a way to celebrate the day despite how different things look this year. Even without the parades, concerts or fireworks (☹ I LOVE fireworks), today I am so thankful for freedom. Internal freedom. Peace. This is my dad. He was the most patriotic person I’ve ever known. He loved this country...[ read more ]

You’ve GOT this!

"It’s been a hell of a week..."​ ​ (or few weeks...or FEW MONTHS!) Recently I’ve been re-engaging with a devotional from Peter Scazzero (who wrote “Emotionally Healthy Spirituality”) called EHS "Day by Day". Both have been life-changing for me by the way. Yesterday he referenced a quote by Thomas Keating talking about God’s Holy Spirit as a Divine Archaeologist in our...[ read more ]

What you pay attention to MATTERS

So start paying attention to the good in yourself! In my last post, I talked about how I’m noticing difficult things in myself (reactions to challenging people and situations, thoughts, fears, etc.) that I thought I’d dealt with. I told you that going back to the familiar is actually a normal reaction to stress and that we can use this...[ read more ]

I Thought I’d DEALT With This!

I find that I've gotten stuck in the urgent and neglected the important.  I don't often enough reach out to see how some of my favorite people are doing in the midst of the mess. I think about how I should, then get busy doing something else and another week has gone by. Then, I'll spend time beating myself up,...[ read more ]
