Somehow Christmas, revenge, success and redemption are related to each other.
Picking a word for the new year over making resolutions has been a thing for awhile. Last year, I hopped on board and chose the word ‘courage’ for 2020. In addition to choosing courage, I made ONE new year resolution and that was “to fail a lot.” The idea is that stepping out of my … Continue reading What is Your Word for 2021?
It’s taken me months of reading to admit that I’m still in the book of Genesis. Earlier this year, I set out on what I thought would result in me reading the Bible more.

What better way to enjoy a wet, cloudy day than with a warm cup of tea? ☕️ There’s something about tea that just makes my mind welcome new ideas and meditate on God’s goodness. Spearmint and Lemongrass grow like mad which means I get to brew yummy tea from my garden all the time. I … Continue reading Sunday Tea
I have an odd habit of counting as I walk up stairs. I'm not counting each stair, I'm not counting time, I'm just counting. Can't tell you why, I just do, so don't worry if you hear whispers as I climb stairs. I may be a little weird but I am okay... When I take … Continue reading A Plight of Stairs
