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 [...]

Changed

I’m sitting here reading letters that sweet young girls write me about Kim Of Queens. I’m so humbled and yet so hopeful for the young women and our future generations. 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 [...]

When God Closes a Door

Have you ever heard the statement “when God closes a door, He opens a window”? I have heard it all my life; at church growing up, my grandma used to say it and even now it’s all over social media – and I completely 100 percent disagree with it.  So many times when a relationship [...]

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 [...]

Move On

Move on! It’s six letters, two words, easy to say, hard to explain and even harder to do. So many times in our lives we hang on to people, things, jobs and even relationships that we need to move on from.  The most frequently asked question is, how do I know when it’s time to [...]

Fear Is Your Friend

When I was a little girl, like 7, my mom was the youth choir director at my church. I will never forget this story because it was my first of many lessons in my “fear being my friend”.  My mom had given me a solo to sing in the Christmas pageant at church. She knew [...]

Masterpiece

The history of the statue of David begins before Michelangelo's work on it from 1501 to 1504.  Prior to Michelangelo's involvement, the Overseers of the Office of Works had plans to commission a series of twelve large Old Testament sculptures for the buttresses of the cathedral, David being one of them. Two other sculptors were [...]
