  • On Purpose Everyday


    I have been sitting here at this laptop for about 20 minutes now.  I have wanted to share my heart. I want to type the words that convey the feeling that exists inside my heart right now. But I don’t want it to come out the wrong way. I don’t want the actual words to distract from the intent. I want my heart to share how hard this is, but for there to be no blame. Because this isn’t about blame. This is all about design. About relationship. What my heart desires is relationship. What they are going through is design. I am currently the momma of two teen boys.…

  • On Purpose Everyday


    Welcome to the blog today.  I’m going to bring up an issue that I know is hard for me to truly embrace…and maybe it’s something you struggle with too. Joy. Now I don’t struggle with wanting it.  That is not the problem. But being aware of its presence and existence when I am surrounded by life, the kind of life that makes joy hard to see, that’s where I struggle. Health diagnosis. Financial debt. Raising teenagers with hormones. Dryer quitting with a load of wet towels in it. Stepping in dog poo while on a walk at the park. Miscommunication with spouse. Dropping the guacamole container in the grocery store…

    Knowing Every Detail

    There is such importance in knowing the full story. Knowing one detail is not enough. The enemy of our souls fights very hard every single day to keep us from knowing the full story. The enemy wants us to know destruction, defeat, and death. He wants to keep our eyes, ears, hearts and souls from knowing who we are and what we were created for. He is number one goal is to keep us from knowing God, our Creator.  The one who fashioned us out of love. He loves us so much and wants us to live fully. To live fully in the abundant life we were created for, we…

  • Life in SoCal

    Spring Break

    It’s spring here in SoCal.  And boy do I enjoy soaking in every ounce of that glorious globe!  There is something about the warmth, the glow, and the heat that just lifts me. And not only is it spring…it’s officially Spring Break here.  Which means I get more time with my amazing T-Squad.  These two teen boys do more for my momma heart than they will ever understand.  Being their momma is a blessing, honor and such a joy.  Now don’t get me wrong there are also words, hormones and looks exchanged that keep me knowing life is REAL! But their humor, their hugs, oh and their thanks you after…

    Living Loved-without end

    I really think we could talk about what it looks like to live loved from now until eternity. Don’t you? Living fully into what we were created to be is God’s original design for us and yet many of us, myself included can’t truly grasp all that entails. If we are honest we are usually so overwhelmed with His amazing grace and love for us that we can’t even fully embrace that. So to live loved has some of us, myself included in a constant learning, growing and maturing state of mind. But there is such beauty in that. Knowing that God has more for us to learn, more for…

    Living Loved-Part 4

    As a day that is recognized for pulling pranks and jokes on each other what we are talking about on the blog today is NO JOKE! Living loved means you are secure in the love of your Creator.  The One who fashioned you on purpose for a purpose.  To be in an intimate love and grace filled relationship with Him. Living loved means you are you.  You are comfortable with you. You love you. You are secure in who you are. There is no need to compare yourself to anyone else. Because again you are you. The world needs you. You’re unique and handcrafted to be that way. Comparison is…

    Living Loved-The Foundation

    God could not love you anymore than He does right now in this very moment. I was standing in an auditorium with my eyes closed when I heard those words yesterday. Those words were just what my heart needed. There is power, freedom, grace, joy, and peace in those words. Hear this; I could not love you anymore than I do right now. And know your Creator is speaking to you. This is the foundation. Love. Get rooted, firmly planted, and grounded in His love for you today. To live loved you have to start here. There is nothing you did, can do or will do to inflate or deflate…
