I love my husband…BUT

Travis (my Husband) My husband and I are total opposites, perfectly paired and we go together like peas and carrots.  I would even dare to say soul mates.  I love my husband BUT…. to quote the legend Tina Turner “what’s love got to do with it”? To be honest he drives me nutty.  [...]

Your mess is your message

I receive hundreds of letters and e-mails each week of people sharing their stories of abuse, mistakes and messes in their lives.  As I read them I see such potential – potential for greatness and purpose! When we were filming Kim Of Queens, my dear friend Deb (of 20 years) and her daughter Hannah, who [...]

I will have to be honest when the last episode did not air I was heartbroken, a bit bitter and down right pissed. It was tough [...]

Ask, Seek, Knock

Yesterday picking my boys up from the bus stop I had the most incredible moment with my youngest son Blanton.  He is 5 years old and a bit of a handful, if you know what I mean.  He’s opinionated, talks back and never listens.  Blanton is my “pay-back” kid from all the things I did [...]

Speak Life!

Psalm 139:16 (NIV):  Your eyes saw my unformed body; all the days ordained for me were written in your book before one of them came to be. Ordain: predetermine, predestine, preordain, destine, determine, prescribe, designate, will "the path ordained by fate" (Merriam-Webster dictionary)  Ok, so what this verse is saying is “GOD ordained”, which is [...]

The Whisper

It was a long day of working, cleaning, cooking and caring for a 2 and 4 year old boys not to mention months of feeling crappy about myself. I had gained 30 pounds and felt like a blob of insignificance. It was raining outside and I was exhausted to say the least, it had been [...]
