Category: Dreams Coming True

A big Saturday.

I’m emotional just typing this post. That does not bode well for my speaking engagement this weekend. My eyes are probably going to puddle for my entire 40 minute slot. Let me back up a bit. From 2003-2005, I taught 5th grade in Jackson County. I have never loved sixty small people as much as

One month from today.

In exactly 30 days, I land in Scotland for a four week adventure that I have anticipated, on some deep-in-my-knower levels, since 2000. I don’t even know how to talk about it. I have so many questions for God. I hope Scotland holds those answers. Maybe not the place itself, but the time. The distance.

You may say I’m a dreamer. But I’m not the only one.

Please, please tell me that you have read the comments from the “My Dream Is” post. They are gorgeous and real and I can’t quit reading them. Have you left your dream yet? Cause I want you to. For realz. It feels so good. [It hurts so good? Maybe.] I don’t know how to process

Catalyst // Thursday

Don’t be mad when I tell you that at time of writing, it is still Thursday night. I have just gotten back to the hotel and I’m sitting on my bed, in the quiet, tears streaming down my face. It has been that type of day. I have lots of pictures, but they are on


I think I may have forgotten to mention this. I’m at Catalyst in Atlanta. What is Catalyst, you ask? Well, according to the Catalyst website, “Catalyst was created to meet the felt need that existed within the church leader space for a leadership event that was focused on a new generation of church leaders.” Is

[That may not be how the song goes…. just move along…..] If you would have told me when I was 22 that I would be 30 and single, I wonder what I would have done differently. Don’t get me wrong- I think God led me and guided me and gave me the most beautiful decade
