I recently was in Colorado and toured the Argo Mill and Mine. It was fascinating hearing about the mine that was built in the 1800’s, seeing the process, taking in the old structures, and hearing the stories of the people that worked in the mine. The mine was a dangerous place to work and the […]

When a Marriage Should End…

June 7, 2024

In the West, we often tend to think in straight linear lines. We want problems, 1 + 1= 2, and we want to know the “right” way to solve the problem and then do it. We want our laws, rules, and religion to easily explain all truth and what is right and wrong. We are […]

A picture that changed my life…

You know what? I can be really insecure about writing because I am horrible with phonics! I cannot spell to save my life! One of the scariest things in the world for me is to have to read out loud in front of people or to stand at a whiteboard and spell things. So that […]

I Can’t Spell…

May 14, 2024

I have a deep desire to have riches. I grew up rockin’ to the Calloway song “I wanna be rich!” And this is America and what we do right- acquire wealth in the land of opportunity. In my old age of 41, I am starting to see some things more clearly. There are only 24 […]

“I Wanna Be Rich..”

I boarded a plane in Tulsa headed to Atlanta and sat next to a lady maybe around my mother’s age. We said hello and I sat down. We didn’t engage in conversation but just settled in for our flight. I noticed after a while her writing on a small piece of paper a list of “Things […]

The Artist is Still at Work…

April 15, 2024

It was 90 degrees today here in Oklahoma on April 14! The sun was calling us, so my boys and I went to Copan Lake. As they played and wrestled through the water, I sat with my feet in the sand and wrote this thought for you… I like so many others would like a […]

Your Problems Are NOT Special…

I used to not like the worship song “Echo.” I thought it was silly. I think it was the word “Echo” and the techno beat, I just couldn’t get into it.  But then I heard an acoustic version and the words snatched me. “In every season, You keep repeating Promises to me, Now there’s no […]

I’ve Decided I’m Not Giving Up… 

March 26, 2024

I work full time, I lead a team and worship on Sundays, I lead a program I created, I am a mom of three growing boys, I try to be a good friend and invest myself in relationships, I try to take care of my body through running and exercise, I keep my mind engaged in […]

I Am Often Sad On Mondays…

I am having a Spring Break garage sale trying to get rid of things because my new home my daddy is building me is almost DONE! We can’t believe it. The fastest build ever! I started setting up the sale on Sunday afternoon and left all my stuff outside overnight. My boys were really worried […]

I Still Believe in People…

March 11, 2024

I walked up to the lot and new fresh cut lumber was lying there ready to take its form. The scent filled my senses and oh the nostalgia of the smell of wood and sawdust. I grew up watching my dad build houses, and create things from the ground up, using scraps to make shelves, […]
