God is telling me that it is time to move on. And like Abraham, like Moses, like so many who have gone before, I must follow where my God has called me. Whatever the reasons for leaving a church—any church—the main reason should and must always be a calling from God.

The song “Remind Me Who I Am” by Jason Gray features prominently. Check out “The BelovedContinue reading “The Beloved Ones on Faith Reboot”
Friday Faves: Snow Globe Living Edition
I’ve been going back and forth on bringing back Friday Faves. Am I ready? What if I do it this Friday and not next Friday? I mean, do I even have any readers left besides my mother? Then I thought, if you write it, they will come. So I fooled around on Facebook for aContinue reading “Friday Faves: Snow Globe Living Edition”
GIVEAWAY!!! Jason Gray’s “Remind Me Who I Am” is #1 on iTunes!
Wednesdays are killer, right? Last weekend is a distant memory and this weekend seems like it will never arrive. And to make matters worse, we’re in the holiday season—shopping, decorating, baking, avoiding Salvation Army bell ringers. I love the Salvation Army and all they do, but I could do without the bell ringers. I wishContinue reading “GIVEAWAY!!! Jason Gray’s “Remind Me Who I Am” is #1 on iTunes!”
I’m thankful for two Jason’s and a Josh!
A musician’s life isn’t easy. Just because musicians are doing what they love, crafting music is a job just like any other. First, there’s the writing process—lyric after lyric, chord progression after chord progression, organizing the percussion, changing up vocals. Then comes the recording process, which is more organization, changing, and take after endless take. Continue reading “I’m thankful for two Jason’s and a Josh!”
Trying to explain my anxiety (or depression) to others is a tall order. Generally, my list of responses include: “Oh, we all get anxious!” (Uh-huh.) “I get nervous about going to the doctor, too.” (Is it a week-long obsession for you?) “Trust in the Lord!” (Who says I’m not?) “I totally understand! One time inContinue reading “Poetic Breathing”
To make my joy complete
For a couple of weeks now, I yearned to write a blog post, yet I was afraid that it wouldn’t be as elegant as I envisioned, that my writing was somehow lacking in my sabbatical. Oh, the messy scribbles in my journal were good enough for God and still I wanted to present something “better,”Continue reading “To make my joy complete”

Friday Faves: Dealing with Bummed-Outness Edition
Since I’m going to a Women of Faith conference (full story) this weekend, you’d think I’d be in a great mood. I mean, what a great opportunity to commune with the people of God, right? Absolutely! And I feel the need for it now more than ever. Looking for a church in the area isContinue reading “Friday Faves: Dealing with Bummed-Outness Edition”
Friday Faves: Happy Birthday BFF Sarah Edition
This weekend I’m going to celebrate a very important event—BFF Sarah’s birthday!!! While some people are content to blow out a few candles and scarf down cake, I like to make a big deal out of birthdays. Now BFF Sarah is an introvert, and prefers to allow others to soak up the spotlight. However, today’sContinue reading “Friday Faves: Happy Birthday BFF Sarah Edition”
