I am a woman, writer, athlete, mom, wife, christian, questioner. I have been labeled a passionate, crazy, risk taker. Sometimes I like the labels; often they make me claustrophobic. I am one person trying to leave this world a better place by living intentionally. Thanks for visiting. I am humbled you have taken time to read my words. I welcome all feedback. Below are some quotes I love.

The thing about light is that it really isn’t yours; it’s what you gather and shine back. And it gets more power from reflectiveness; if you sit and take it in, it fills your cup, and then you can give it off yourself. Anne Lamott

You are braver than you believe, stronger than you seem, and smarter than you think. Christopher Robin to Pooh

May God give you the grace to never sell yourself short, the grace to risk something big for something good, and the grace to know the world is now too dangerous for anything but the truth and too small for anything but love. Rev. William Sloane Coffin, Jr

    When I have the need to read wise words and yearn to let out a big laugh, I think about you and this wonderful blog. You are so talented and I don’t know how you find the time to write but I am so grateful. I also hear the words in your voice which make it even more special. Keep writing sister.
