I’ve been trying to take a walk every day both for exercise and to focus my heart on The Lord. I’m having to walk earlier and earlier in the day as the temperature is finally reaching the “warm” zone and I find myself going back again and again to listen to the song “Gratitude” by I AM THEY (featuring Cheyenne Mitchell).

It makes me feel uncomfortable inside, but recently, when I find myself without anyone to talk to at a gathering (like after church or at a social event), I walk over and just join another group. It might seem silly, but for me, it’s always a little scary. Joining groups I haven’t been invited to […]
So this guy pulls out a Bible on a plane… It sounds like the start of a joke right? Except, it wasn’t a joke. In late September I headed out on an adventure from the mountains of far Northern California to the mountains of East Tennessee for a Christian women’s retreat for writers, podcasters and […]
