HAPPY NEW YEAR! A Mighty Welcome to Year 2020!

HAPPY NEW YEAR, Y’ALL! 🎉 Did you know that not only is this year 2020—the start of a whole new decade of possibilities—but it’s also *leap* year?? How cool is that? I can’t fully explain *why* but, that just lights a fire in me!

I Love My Sent-To-Production Brain Baby

There she is. My sent-to-production brain baby. I remember when I finished the very first draft… I never imagined it’d get this far. I really didn’t. I had hope, but that was literally all I had. A hope! A wish! Never underestimate hope. When that hope is lit up with the fire of *work* and a refusal to give up, *anything* is possible. And the … Continue reading I Love My Sent-To-Production Brain Baby

So, let me tell you a story. *ahem* Once upon a … Continue reading Once Upon a Run

1,111 Days

Yesterday, I reached day 1,111 consecutive days of at least 1/2 hour of scripture study each day. I am not a perfect person—one unscheduled visit to my home will show you that; you should ask to see my bedroom, where I hide all the laundry that I haven’t put away… on second thought, don’t do that. That’d just be uncomfortable for both of us. But … Continue reading 1,111 Days
