Praying about a parade.

I’ve always been pretty consumed with the need to live out a good story. Maybe that’s the writer in me. More likely, it’s the Author in God calling me into a better life. Not better, as in more put together and polished but better as in meaningful and memorable. Donald Miller writes a lot about... Continue Reading →

The first step.

I just got done reading The Screwtape Letters by CS Lewis. If you don’t know, the book is a collection of letters from an uncle demon to his nephew demon. His nephew is overseeing a “patient” who has recently become a Christian and they are trying to exploit his humanity and derail any gains for... Continue Reading →

I’m writing a book.

After you decide to try your hand at writing a book, you have to figure out what it'll be about. I feel like maybe people who have their lives more together, have an idea first and then decide to write about it. I don't have my life together yet though and frankly, I want the... Continue Reading →

The class that fit our schedule was for experienced yogis in a heated room. We’d never done an ounce... Continue Reading →

Short North Staycation part two.

Short North Staycation part one.

I am a south Florida girl born and raised. I met my Ohio native hubby on a trip to Columbus and moved here after we were married. But I’ve been here almost 7 years now and I’ve never really explored this city. We have two littles, which makes dating in itself hard... but to be... Continue Reading →
