I might be an accountant by trade, but I’ve got a whole lotta words to share with you around here! You’ll find everything from treasured family recipes to lettering tutorials, from my preferred pens and paintbrushes to the must-sees in my home sweet Waco, Texas.
Pull up a seat and stay a while, friend! I’m so glad you’re here.
When I look at all I’ve learned and experienced in the first 65 days of 2018, I should be exhausted. God’s doing some huge heart work, rooting out a lot of lies and fears I didn’t even know I had. I think somewhere along the way I finally stopped trying to figure out the next […]
And just like that, here we are. January was challenging and exciting and reminded me of all the goodness I’d been missing out on at the end of 2017 when my prayer life had pretty much bottomed out. I have learned and am continuing to learn a LOT about prayer, and my biggest takeaway is […]
I might’ve been a little less bold in my January goals if I’d known how heavily and actively the Lord was going to work on me through them. But, then I’d be missing the point, so instead I’m closing January out with more gratitude than I could’ve ever imagined. God’s answered some big prayers this […]
I’m going to be honest with you, friends. 2018 looks a little messy and hazy still. The start of a new month, and certainly a new year, get me all giddy and hopeful, and this January 1 is no exception. But I have a feeling that there is still some major work to be done […]
November was an absolute whirlwind. As I sat down to prepare my December goals, I realized I hadn’t marked any progress past the first week of November. That’s what CPA studying and week-long work trips will do for you! I knew November would be a bit of a wash. I focused on the key things […]
October?! Gracious day. Where has 2017 gone, y’all? I’m going to keep this short and sweet. My calendar in October is full of BIG, GOOD stuff, but that means I have to hone in *tight* on the right things. I’m keeping my goals for this month as simple as possible to keep me focused on […]
I love August, y’all. As it’s my birthday month, I’ve had a fondness for August for as long as I can remember, but now that I perpetually live in the world of higher ed, I love that it means campus will be full again, new students will be starting their journey at Baylor, and the return to […]
Because I was in New York for the beginning of July, my PowerSheets sat untouched for a few days beyond their normal prep time. Last week was my first full week back in the office and the studio, and my to do list quickly spun out of control. So on Thursday night, I threw in the […]
June feels fresh and exciting and new and I’m thrilled about it. There’s nothing like a new season to reset and jump in headfirst with new goals. This summer is going to be a great one. I can feel it! First, to reflect on May… –Be present. Put the phone down. Made progress here! –Find and […]
“It’s okay to grow slow.” Those are the “encouraging words” I picked as a theme to go back to for all of my May goals. Slow progress is still progress, and I can always use a reminder to slow down. The Lord is working in big, deep ways in my life right now, and as […]
