Week Eight of The 100-Day Project

This post is a transcription of the Starting with a Song Podcast, S3Ep8: Week Eight of #The100DayProject Y’all. We are PAST the halfway point of #The100DayProject! You may or may not have noticed that I’ve taken a little hiatus. I actually anticipated taking off this week because I was on a retreat, but last week…

Week Six of The 100-Day Project

This post is a transcription of the Starting with a Song Podcast, S3Ep7: Week Six of #The100DayProject I had a thought on Day 40: 10 more days and I’ll be halfway through at Day 50 and then I just do all this over again. No big deal! I really can’t believe how fast time has…

Week One of The 100-Day Project

This post is a transcription of the Starting with a Song Podcast, S3Ep2: Week One of #The100DayProject Hey friends! It’s good to be back so soon into Week One of The 100-Day Project. How are things going for you? It’s been a weird one here in Nashville ranging from 72 degrees, dipping into the 30s…

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…

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.

Loving through Walls

My thoughts are mostly questions surrounding loving through walls. No, I’m not talking about the Netflix social train-wreck called Love is Blind, but rather… “How can I love the people around me while they’re not physically around me?”

10% Heavyweight

I could lie and say I purposefully marked my calendar to plant all the things on Earth Day, but I didn’t. It was pure happenstance working out that way. My husband & I spent Easter with his family and my green-thumbed father-in-law gifted me with three eggplant seedlings, two cherry tomato plants and two Roma…

Spanning Decades

My office is a short commute from where I live… approximately 15 steps upstairs. It was one of the first things that drew us to this house: separate workspaces for both my husband and myself, plus extra room for guests. There are days when I stop to drink it all in. I am doing what…

Joy Rebel

There’s a childhood song that bounced around my head the other day: “I’ve got the joy, joy, joy, down in my heart. (Where?) Down in my heart! (Where?) Down in my heart!” It made me sit a minute and wrestle with the word that’s held so much meaning for me this year. As I’ve shared…

On the Hunt for Lovely

Hi. My name is Amanda and I am Annie Downs‘ #1 fan. With every word she writes, I want to call her up and invite her to dinner because we have so much in common and I feel like we would be the best of friends. In a totally non-creepy way, of course. After finishing…
