A Window Into the Joy of Being Broken-Hearted

Please watch this video below. Also read the back story.  I probably resonate with this story so much because it is similar to how I got my family. We didn’t adopt because their parents didn’t abandon our boys but we do have this forever family with them. This couple became broken-hearted over this abandoned girl. […]

Missing Me Some Fall…….

** I wrote this post on fall two years ago while living in the Philippines.  Fall has always been the hardest time for me living overseas so I thought it would only be appropriate to share this part of my life.  It all still rings true! So if you know me well at all, you […]

Who Was That Person on That Date?

I’m not asking this question to the other person, the person you just met at a coffee date. I’m asking you. Who was that different person?

Contorting Yourself to Figure Out if You Are Loveable

I received this message from a senior in high school: “I’m being an idiot about this, but I’ve considered telling him.  If it’d turn out that he didn’t feel the same, I’d say someone took my phone.  That’s what I’ve been thinking about.  I’m prolly not going to say anything…I’m so confused right now.” I’m […]

Finishing Strong!

The Choice to Live Broken Hearted

“The brokenhearted are indeed the bravest among us—they dared to love, and they dared to forgive.” –Dr. Brene Brown, Rising Strong, p. 156 Oh my goodness I love the research of Dr. Brene’ Brown. I very likely would love Dr. Brene’ Brown also, when I get the chance to meet her. Her research (research, not […]

15 Questions

Being a worship leader, musician and worshiper is just a part of who I am as a Christian. And just like my walk with Christ, the deeper I get in my role as worship leader, singer, songwriter and worshiper, the more questions I have about all of it. So here are a few things I […]

Life Is Your Ministry

I get asked the question a lot of, “What do you do?” A few years ago that question would have been answered pretty strait forward, but these days, well it’s harder for me to answer. Just today I was taking our friend to the clinic for a quick check up and on the way she […]
