I’ve stopped writing. Trying to get a fix on exactly what my direction in life is, my words became silent. To satisfy my love of words, I turned to books. Like most everything in my life, the ebbs and flows sometimes draw me to creating, other times I devour what others have done. Continue reading
This past weekend, Jay and I got the privilege of loving our Cambodian neighbor, via an Ohio neighborhood. In the process, I met 3 cyber neighbors and celebrated my father-in-law’s 75 birthday.
My patient, kind, and loving husband sometimes gets frustrated with me. When there are too many options set before me, I tend to check out. 6 different things on the menu I might like causes me to shut down. If he won’t chose for me, I attempt to get the server to guide my choice. Continue reading

Since Jay and I have been attended the chapel service in our subdivision, I haven’t been able to attend Sunday morning Bible study. While not the same as gathering with a group for discussion, her teaching is effective. I’m learning as well as preparing my heart for the worship service. Continue reading
What is my calling as a follower of Jesus? My Christian tradition would tell me 2 things aren’t in the pipeline for me – motherhood and foreign missions. One I don’t desire, the other God has closed the door on (for now). Continue reading
I haven’t joined the girls for #FridayFive fun in a few weeks, but couldn’t resist this week’s prompt: smiles.
In the words of Buddy the Elf, “Smiling is my favorite!”

This past week, Alexandra Kuykendall released her book”Loving My Actual Life: An Experiment in Relishing What’s Right in Front of Me.”
One of the things I love about MY actual life right now? Opportunities like this to be a member of a book launch team. I received an advanced copy of the book, and wanted to share some of the notes I made as I went through each chapter.
Each month, Kuykendall chose an aspect of life to focus on living with purpose. Following the description of her goal for the month, she writes daily notes logging how she experienced the heart of what she is trying to accomplish. Continue reading
