LIFE LESSONS: Courage to Begin

I’m an artist, writer, speaker. An initiator, leader, dreamer, visionary. All of these require Courage. Courage to begin. But sometimes I get stuck. Lack of vision, opportunity? Occasionally. More often than not, I’m overwhelmed with all the possibilities. When I find myself in that place, indecision grips me. Indecision promotes procrastination. Procrastination opens the door to fear and failure. I am

Woven GNO: Self-Image

Our August Girls’ Night Out rocked! 62 women from 6+ churches came together for worship and the word. Here’s a sample from my notes: Can you remember when you were first aware of your weight? I was in 2nd grade. My mother would send me out the door, but just as the bus was reaching the stop, I was suddenly ill

Life Lessons: The Nitty Gritty

My grandsons Jude and Isaac playing in the sand   The nitty gritty truth? I love the beach. Hate the sand. An oxymoron? I suppose so. After all, the beach is sand and sand is the beach: a beautiful host to the immense ocean. It provides a homecoming for the tide. It harbors hidden treasures, empty shells, a foreground for unending

Lady Liberty

Lady Liberty. I have loved this woman since the day I first knew of her. Even as a child, she fascinated me, stirring a longing deep within for “Liberty and Justice for All.” Her beauty astounded me. Her majesty–I could not escape!   No matter how many times I’ve spied her via photo, freeway, ferry, boat, from the sky above

The Man in the Pink Bikini

FAMILY TREASURES… For 15 years, my Boy and I have enjoyed burying our toes in the gorgeous white sands of the Gulf of Mexico. Our speck on the map is appropriately named– Treasure Island. It’s truly a treasure tucked into our 17 years of marriage: a time of rejuvenating our relationship, basking in the beauty of God’s creation, a home away from

Woven: It’s Girl Time!!

I was up with the birds this morning~ they were very chipper and chirping at 4am! I couldn’t help but share their joy, their songs of expectation.

I Will Not Be Silent…

I apologize for being silent. The past 30 days have taken me to Williamsburg, Virginia to speak at the Secrets Conference, then to Las Vegas for the Arbonne International Global Training Conference, and this past weekend to Washington D.C. for the End Exploitation Summit. These events have left me somewhat speechless: not for lack of thought
