When God’s Time Isn’t Your Time

When God’s Time Isn’t Your Time

If you are one of those fortunate people who was seemingly born knowing what you wanted to do when you grow up - I'm super happy for you. But for the rest of us, life ends up being a series of starts and stops, with constant changes in direction. You either choose a...

It’s Ok to Not Be Ok

It’s Ok to Not Be Ok

The world we live in is a very connected world. Yet most of us feel more disconnected than ever. We put our best foot forward on social media because God-forbid anyone find out that we are struggling. It leaves us feeling like a fraud; like we are helplessly alone;...

Bold Women Modern Edition: Christa McAuliffe

When I was in 3rd grade, I wanted nothing more than to be an Astronaut. This passion carried into my 4th grade year, so you know it wasn't just a passing fancy. I read everything there was to read about the planets, constellations, the space program and was generally...

Bold Women Modern Edition: Marie Curie

Did you know that prior to 1869, the periodic table didn't exist? Me either. I'm just enough of a science geek that I find how it was developed to be extremely interesting. Sixty years before the table was developed, scientists were aware of about 47 elements. By...

Bold Women Modern Edition: Jane Goodall

Bold Women Modern Edition: Jane Goodall

You know who Jane Goodall is, right? She has fancy words after her name, like primatologist and anthropologist - but what I bet you don't know is what she was before her famous work with chimpanzees. I know that I, personally, had no idea. I assumed that she went to...

I Love My Kids – But I Don’t Even Know Who I Am Anymore.

I Love My Kids – But I Don’t Even Know Who I Am Anymore.

My oldest son is four months away from being seventeen. He reminded me of that this morning. This is madness to me. How did the last seventeen years pass by so quickly? I vividly remember the day he was born. I was induced at 7am, but by 7pm, my baby was still in my...

Bold Women of the Bible: Deborah

Bold Women of the Bible: Deborah

The book of Judges is one of my favorite books. I love the stories of Israel dancing back and forth. First realizing how much they need God because of some giant mess they've gotten themselves into...and then forsaking Him to try to do it on their own. Rinse. Repeat....

I love Jesus… but I cuss a little.

I love Jesus… but I cuss a little.

This one has been percolating in me for awhile. Brewing around, waiting for me to find all the words to say to get my meaning across. I'm still not 100% feeling like I've got it all formulated, but I guess it's time to leave off the dragging of my feet and just put it...

A Love Letter to My Sister (and maybe to you too).

A Love Letter to My Sister (and maybe to you too).

When I was about 3 1/2, my mom did the worst thing she's ever done to me and brought home my baby sister. It took me about 16 years before I finally appreciated her, my sister I mean, and the only thing that caused it to happen was...

Alright, so I'm no spring chicken. I'm also not exactly fit. And when I need an excuse for why I can't do something, those are two excellent options. So, I'd been dreaming of the re-purposing of this travel blog into a brand new travel-inspired project for weeks....

Fun in the Fort: All In Adventures

Fun in the Fort: All In Adventures

I'm a firm believer that if you don't get out and see the world, you are living a life half lived. Not just because you miss out on the wonders of the world, but you miss out on experiencing life outside of what you are accustomed to living. That all being said -...

Day 15 – The World’s Most Epic RV Road Trip – Vegas, Baby

When I say we don't like crowds - I mean it. We were at the Hoover Dam before anyone else. Waiting patiently for a tour that was not to be. (Broken elevator). We did do the visitor center - very informative, very interesting. We spent quite a bit of time checking it...

Day 11 – The World’s Most Epic RV Road Trip – Death Valley

Day 11 – The World’s Most Epic RV Road Trip – Death Valley

The trip from Sequoia to Death Valley was basically uneventful, save for a very fortuitous stop at Gus's (don't bother with the grammatical error of that) Jerky. It's phenomenal, and very worth the stop. Round about here, we got buzzed by what we think was an F-14...

Day 9 – The World’s Most Epic RV Road Trip – Yosemite

Day 8 – The World’s Most Epic RV Road Trip – Lake Tahoe

Collectively, this was our least favorite stop on the trip. Lake Tahoe is lovely. But... The mountains surrounding this gorgeous lake are incredible. The whole area looks like a postcard. We arrived by noon local time, and desperately wanted to rent a boat – but 30mph...
