Safety, Fear and Boycotting

Normally, I stay out of political and religious conversation. In my observation, people’s comments online rarely change opinions, and are nearly guaranteed to create strife and build walls between us rather then opening minds and producing new thought. However, this time I can’t keep quiet. And it may not be what you expect.

Strength in my Weakness

Last week, we were stuck in Appalachian Mountains during a spontaneous house-hunting adventure. Its been a long time since I’ve been so scared. However, there was a certain beauty, a certain comfort though the whole experience. In those hours, alone on a abandoned mountain road with night falling quickly, we experienced incredible weakness. After trying everything we […]

Our Unexpected Appalachian Adventure

Tuesday evening, we had our craziest mountain experience yet. Let me back up though. Our day really started out normal and little bit under whelming. As many of you know, we work from home most days and this day in particular was a little bit slow. So, in the name of spontaneity, we decided to […]

Bloom

I love having plants around the home. They bring a certain freshness to our space, and it’s something I can take care of that’s not so needy. I water it, I place it in sun, but it doesn’t take up all my time and effort. It’s a low-maintenance  hobby, really. Now I am sure there […]

Even as a Christian, I would chalk Easter up to be a celebration mostly for children, with the overall good intention of sharing the […]

On Moving

From sea to the mountains

I’m scared. Moving to Asheville, of course, is so incredibly exciting. I love the Blue Ridge Mountains, I love the city, I love change. But at the same time, I hate what that looks like for our family. I guess you could say I hate the consequences change brings. We feel so strongly that moving […]

Confidence

This year, I was inspired to seek Gods guidance on choosing ‘one word’ instead of a resolution. Choosing one word to direct my focus and direction in 2016 forces me to simplify my already overflowing ‘to-do list’, challenges me to be intentional about really and truly growing in one particular area for Christ. And guys, […]
