I had just come from singing at a funeral, I was emotionally and mentally exhausted and had some relational drama happening in my life. I called my bestie and said can we go get some comfort food? We went out to eat and she snapped this picture of me at our table. She said, “You […]

Life is so BAD and So GOOD.

February 3, 2024

I sat in a team meeting Monday morning as we gave updates… One teammate is undergoing chemotherapy and was not feeling well enough to attend. Another teammate had a tumor found on his brain and another needs tests for some heart issues. And yet another with a wife who has been dealing with a chronic […]

I’m Still Here

In 2016 I moved to Orlando, leaving all the things I loved, my friends, my family, my church, and my new budding program I created for girls, and I tried to trust the PUSH. The push that comes sometimes in life and you don’t totally understand why, the picture isn’t clear, the future is uncertain, […]

Be Brave

November 15, 2022

Permission to be happy… Several years ago my family moved across the country to Florida, at the time it was a huge step of faith, as Dr. French did not have a job there. We were going to go and “spy out the land” and he was going to keep his counseling practice and job […]

Permission to be Happy

As I ran on our beautiful pathfinder today, I took in the new sights of Spring arriving. The birds’ songs have become loud and vociferous, as blue jays, cardinals, and scissor tails, swoop, and dance from the tree branches. I heard a woodpecker overhead, a fantastic, intriguing sound, that everyone should get the privilege to […]

When it is Time, it is Time

March 2, 2022

I ran today after over two months of nursing a sprained ankle. If you read my blog “Own your walk of pain,” it tells the whole story. The temperatures turned this week, and it was glorious outside today. Seventy-One degrees and March 1, 2022, I’ll take it! After not running for two months, uh you […]

Necessary Pain

Once in a conversation with Dr. French, he said to me “the point of life is to learn how to DIE.” We are all slowly making our way towards death every day. We will either learn how to accept death and die at peace or we will die troubled. As I am learning to die […]

Death Where is Your Sting?

October 28, 2021

Non-Essential…I run on the Pathfinder Bartlesville, Ok amongst the trees, and realized how much I need them, how they serve me and keep me alive. As I pondered all the ways in which our climate, animals, wind, sea, sky, stars, magnetic poles all interact with each other, I was hit with a truth that I […]

Non-Essential

I was pondering Yeshua and some of the moments in his life when he stood up against power. I was struck by the story we usually refer to as “the woman caught in adulty.” Normally when we talk about this story, we talk about how church people bring her to Yeshua and ask him, “what […]

I Can’t Stop The Rain

August 27, 2021

I don’t ever feel like I need a vacation nor do I want one! I once heard a talk about how in the USA we are given vacations but in other countries, they go on Holiday or Celebrate Holiday. The word vacation comes from the word vacate. Our posture toward vacation often is to vacate […]
