Still Blooming

I love following artist and writer, Morgan Harper Nichols on Instagram. Her words and accompanying art always seem to catch me right when and where I need them. “I am not who I used to be and that is a beautiful thing and even here, in new unknowns, I know: I am still blooming.” -Morgan…

When Life Gives You Lemons (and Takes Away Corn)

For those who know me, it’s no secret I love tacos. During 2020, I attended a virtual Field Trip through CreativeMornings, where I learned how to make corn tortillas from a Spanish chef living in Germany. (Technology!) It forever ruined me for store bought tortillas. Also during 2020, I learned how to make authentic Tacos…

Bolstering Hope

I’m seeing connections between my personal learning and real world experience. People need people.

May everyone be so blessed to have someone listen and really hear them. May everyone be so blessed to have someone say they want to walk with them through the hard stuff. May everyone be so blessed to find, through the actions of others, that they’re not alone.

Stacking Stones

There are some days where I feel physically helpless, but I can pinpoint the exact moment when I was brought back to life. I have the receipts. I’ve stacked stones in the river. Even sitting in this pain, I can return and rejoice because I remember why God is good.

Presence Not Withheld

I tend to avoid New Year resolutions, but I do want to continue living here in this heart posture: just as I have been promised, so will I try to extend.

Keep the Receipts

It was one year ago today that everything changed. We were putting in a full day of work and training a new employee. We attended an event that evening… and an hour after we left, the building and surrounding neighborhoods were hit with tornadoes. Mere weeks later, the country quarantined from COVID. Everything was different….

Count It All Joy

Two years ago, my word for the year was Brave. The word Savor found me heading into 2020. I’d been wondering what this year would hold and what word I’d cling to. (After all we’ve been through, how do you even plan?) It sounds silly, but I asked God for a word at the end…

014 – Song of Serving

I couldn’t think of a better guest to chat about the saga of 2020 than with Executive Director of the Community Resource Center here in Nashville. I hope you enjoy this Year-in-Review conversation with my dear friend, Tina Doniger.

Delighted

With every month that passes, I look at the calendar and say, “how did we get here?!” “How is it already August?” In many ways, I continue feeling like I’m stuck in a weird purgatory and in reality, it’s still January. But, it’s not and my brain just cannot seem to compute.

013 – Song of Connection

My guest today is a life-long stationery lover and postal proponent and in the middle of a digital age where we were forced to quarantine, she continued to believe in the power of old-fashioned mail to create authentic connections. Here’s my conversation with my friend, Courtney Cochran.
