I get things done! I thrive when I can organize,  plan,

budget, & train for things. 


I took up blogging because I wanted to have a place where I could chronicle all our big life events. It was between a blog or a shutter fly book each year.


My parents are wildlife ranchers in central Texas. We lived in a double wide trailer on our property for 4 years of my child hood.

I married my favorite person & the most handsome man in the entire world.


The 3 things I can't stop watching are Gossip Girl, The Office &, Harry Potter.  

On any given day, you’ll find me listening to film sound tracks or audio books


My Myers Briggs is INTJ.

On Ennegram I am a Challenger.

Physical touch is my love language, but I for sure don't come across that way.

It has been a year since my battle with postpartum depression and praise God I am still free from its grasp! But if I am being honest I can still feel the shadow..

You see, I thought I was going to Kenya to use my gifts as an entrepreneur, my knowledge of start-ups.. I WAS WRONG!

If being human is natural & if holiness is supernatural then OF COURSE it is going to feel unnatural & inauthentic the first time you do anything holy. BUT pursuing that growth, despite the discomfort, is a key factor in becoming a leader of faith. 

One of my favorite sayings is "Don’t fake it til you make it, TRAIN IT ‘TIL IT’S TRUE!"

This is the mantra of a spiritual leader! So lets talk about the 4 must hav...

Do you think your food consumption or avoidance can be a reflection of your overall discipline in life?

Do you think what you eat affects how you are experiencing God?

Do you think that God CARES about what you eat and how you treat your body?

When I started the Whole 30 at the beginning of January, I found myself asking these questions.

This past year I walked thr...

Are you the leader God is looking for? 

Hmmm….. that is a bold question! 

When Jesus selected his crew of world changers he brought in the most motley bunch of randoms!  It’s strange isn’t it? I mean, if you’re on an elite mission to save the planet, USUALLY (I‘m pulling this from movies )  you bring in only the best of the best and the brightest of bright….. not a random person muddling through a life of seeming mediocrity....

Instead of Resolutions this year, I am opting for Reflections & Questions - and they are anything but normal! 

I have come up with a fun & quick interactive list of things to think about, BECAUSE what good is goal-setting for the next year if you haven't spent time reviewing your last one?

But here is the catch, this list CAN'T be done by yourself.... you'll need to be brave if you want to finish these questions...they WILL push...

Why am I so sad?

This is supposed to be the happiest season of my life, why am I so so sad?

Why can’t I stop thinking about death? 

Every single time she looks at me I want to cry.  It is so beautiful and so fleeting. It feels like time is flying by me all of a sudden.

I don’t want her to grow up! I want to savor this moment forever. She is so sweet and tiny and full of potential!

I can’t wait for her to grow up! All she does...

Everyone was staring. And why wouldn't they be, we were making a scene! I could't help but wonder how weird we must have looked... how weird I must have looked!
