I write because hitting “post” on the vulnerable places of my heart is a hard thing to do. I write because we have a commitment to our children to do hard things. And ultimately I write because the Truth found in doing hard things sets us free.

Find Your Hell Yes
Picking up the pieces of my disheveled heart and staggering to the finish line of following through, last September was a month where I still felt like I was treading water deep at sea. I could breathe again and no longer felt like I was below the surface of life struggling for air but I was still treading in deep, dark waters. Afloat, but still feeling stranded between my yeses and nos.
