Hello to my fellow sojourners! So much has changed in my life over the past few years since I put this site together. I am moving into a more professional path with a desire to encourage you in your personal journey as well as support you in your professional path. I am working on new content for this page and will be updating soon. I wanted to leave the current content here so you could at least know a little about me. All said, my future plans are to walk and work with you; and I very much look forward to it!
It took me a long time to call myself a writer. It seemed too big and important of a title for me to feel worthy of. I’ve since overcome that; not because I’m big and important but because God is. I know the message of encouragement He has called me to share is also big and important. And now it seems He has me branching out to do some speaking, freelance writing and proofreading. One of my favorite things to do is to support writers, maybe even more than I enjoy my own writing!
I am a certified SYMBIS Facilitator and am almost a Certified Enneagram Coach. My hope is to round out my coaching certifications to provide support for engaged couples, early marrieds, re-marrieds, and women in all stages.
For most of my life, home has been in Texas. I have lived in Brazil, Singapore, England, and various parts of the United States. I have recently settled in a small town just outside of Wichita, Kansas. I enjoy traveling the world as much as I have time and budget for; thus the travel blog. I will, however, always be a Texas girl. It’s true that “You can take the girl out of Texas but you can’t take Texas out of the girl.”
I’ve always treasured words and stories. As an older teenager and into young adulthood, I wrote poetry and songs. The writing slowed a bit as I began to live the story of being a wife and mom to three. Some seasons are made for living the story and not writing about them.
The empty nest years made way for words to bubble back up to the top. Often they flow like water from a fire hydrant, but at times, putting a sentence together resembles walking through a muddy field with cement-bottom boots. All things considered, I now have time to pursue my long-time passion for processing life through my fingertips as well as the desire and ability to share with others.
“Thoughts disentangle themselves when they pass through the lips and fingertips.” Dawson Trotman
Blogs have hosted my heart words since blogs became a thing (am I telling my age?). I love to live stories and I love to share them; both through my words and as a photography hobbyist. As the stories of others are entrusted to me, I am comforted and encouraged to take my next steps. I pray my sharing will somehow be of encouragement to you in your next steps. Our lives matter. Our stories matter. Your words matters. I’d be honored to support you in your personal journey or in your writing life. Let’s walk and work together!
And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching. Hebrews 10:24-25
