I started going to cycle classes at the Y a few years ago. I even have the fancy cycling shoes that clip into the pedals. This, of course, makes me a cycling expert. Sadly, my expertise ends at the part where you clip in and ride an actual road bike in the actual world. YouContinue reading “My Cycling FAIL: Falling, F-bombs, & Finding Balance”

A really special book launches tomorrow, and the fact that I’m part of it is a dream come true in more ways than one. Just six months ago, I had been thinking and praying about our generation’s need for more voices to speak life and truth and practical spiritual application into the hearts of women. More voices pointingContinue reading “begin.”
Throwback Thursday: Here’s to You. Yes, You.
If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you know I’m training to run the Boston Marathon in April. (!!!!!!!!!) Most days I’m super pumped about it, but today’s tempo run kicked my @$$. It was a physical strain, yes — but more than that, today was a mental battle. About halfway through, the negative thoughts drummedContinue reading “Throwback Thursday: Here’s to You. Yes, You.”
Spiritually Dry: When you’re doing All The Spiritual Things… and He still feels far away.
Do you ever feel like you’re in a spiritual desert even when you’re actively pursuing God? Ever feel dead tired spiritually — even as you’re trying to follow Jesus? Me too. Then I found a beautiful (and surprising) encouragement tucked away in the Scriptures. The truths in those words have re-awakened my hope. It’s changedContinue reading “Spiritually Dry: When you’re doing All The Spiritual Things… and He still feels far away.”
Guest Post: Embracing The Race
I’d like to introduce you to Lisa Preuett. When I met her a couple of years ago at a writer’s conference, we discovered we had running in common as well as writing! She had a devotional in the works at the time, and the early drafts she shared totally resonated with my runner’s heart. If you knowContinue reading “Guest Post: Embracing The Race”

Do you remember? No? Oh good, this will be fun. Happy Throwback Thursday, friends. I present to you: my dumbest race ever. Originally published onContinue reading “Throwback Thursday: Who needs a laugh?”
You can only carry yourself so far, Warrior.
I went to a women’s conference this weekend. It was the Belong Tour, and to be honest I only bought a ticket because I was SO. EXCITED. TO SEE JEN HATMAKER! There were other amazing women there as well, and Glennon from Momastery even made a guest appearance! The whole weekend was funny and touching; I laughed,Continue reading “You can only carry yourself so far, Warrior.”
Throwback Thursday: Mom Fail
Last week I volunteered in my son’s class for the first time this year. I had signed up to lead the class for the afternoon during a teacher planning day, and I was really excited to get in there. That is a lie. I was terrified. You guys, Owen is in third grade. Third graders are soContinue reading “Throwback Thursday: Mom Fail”
A Letter to Myself About Glennon’s Divorce
Glennon Doyle Melton announced earlier this month that she is leaving her husband. I admire her vulnerability in sharing about her marriage and her decision to leave. I thought about making this “A Letter to Glennon About Her Divorce.” But I’m not. Because this post isn’t about her. It’s about me. You see, Glennon closed her announcement with aContinue reading “A Letter to Myself About Glennon’s Divorce”
Throwback Thursday: Adventures with Self Tanner
‘Tis the season, friends: summer is nearly upon us. But not quite. Our shorts beg to be worn, but our legs, in all their pasty white glory, scream, “NOOOOOOOOOOO!” (To my brown-skinned friends: just read on and laugh, mmkay?) To remedy the issue, self tanners beckon from the shelves, promising, “You, too, can DIY your way to perfectly sun(less)-kissedContinue reading “Throwback Thursday: Adventures with Self Tanner”
