It’s time for me to face facts: I SUCK at writing every day for #31Days.  Publicly, at least.  At the bare minimum, Ive produced words, ideas, prayers, grumbles, moans & drivel into journals almost every other day.  If not there, I type into Evernote when I know my fingers can’t keep up the speed to […]

Participating today in the #ShareTheLove blog tour.  I was invited by the sweetest Chicagoan journalist, Emily Miller who I simply refer to as Emmille (pronounced  em-meal) because her twitter handle @emmillerrwrites always read to me as Emmille R. Writes.  This generous soul spotted me a train pass and a coffee every morning of the Story […]

Yes, my insta feed, twitter feed & FB feed was all abuzz from my time at the #FFWgr.  At the Festival of Faith & Writers, I was entirely inspired, convicted, guilt-ridden to begin writing consistently again. Let’s just keep it real, y’all: 75% of the reason I went to FFW was Annie Lamott.  That, driving […]

Today, I’m guest posting over at the lovely Sarah Bessey’s blog on why I shared a deeply personal and mortifyingly honest story in the new anthology, Talking Taboo: American Christian Women Get Frank about Faith. I hope that ANY reader of mine knows that I understand community and vulnerability to be a key tenet of mutual healing.   […]

are we the same or different

I’m so excited to guest post on Grace’s blog – and I hope you’ll find it worth your time to read it! (To make it easier, I’ll try to keep things short.) It won’t take long for you to notice that my writing style is different from Grace’s. She writes as the free spirit she […]

His last book was Wrecked: When a Broken World Slams into your Comfortable Life …which, will wreck the mess outta you if you let it.  And this next […]

Dear Over Sharing Mama, I feel you.  Sometimes, I confess, I over share because I feel woefully inadequate as a Mama.  At least I think that’s why underneath it all. I upload copious amounts of instagrams appropriately hashtagged #momlife. Yet, as to motive, I’m in deliberations about all this.  Hear me out. One time I tweeted, […]

medium be damned

Yesterday, I shared how I need my blog to be different.  Per my promise, today is pt. 2 in which, I hope I can explain why being a writer can kiss my bootay. One of the biggest revelations I had on my bloggy hiatus was this:  I don’t want to be a full time writer.  […]
