Lean On Me

My friend Anne Marie Miller has a new book out. It’s called Lean On Me and it’s about something that’s important to me…forming intentional, vulnerable and consistent community. In the age of social media and revolving homes and jobs, a life-giving and truth-telling community can be hard to pin down. But I believe it’s worth the fight.  (The […]

Jesus Is Better

This might be the worst book review ever…mostly because the book {Jesus is Better Than You Imagined} was such an impactful read that I’ve already passed it along to a friend.

A couple of months ago, I blogged about Lysa TerKeurst’s book Unglued. Oh, I’ve been unglued. I am not proud to admit it, but it’s true. I’ve been unglued. I’ve been unhinged. And I’ve been unable to keep my crazy under wraps. There was the time in middle school when two teenage boys were bullying […]

Beyond Ordinary

Beyond Ordinary

Last week I had the pleasure of sitting down with two of my favorite people, Trisha and Justin Davis, to talk about their new book, Beyond Ordinary: When a Good Marriage Isn’t Good Enough.

At 35, memories of high school are starting to get a little blurry. But the feelings of insecurity and unworthiness that I felt as I lugged my mammouth backpack down the halls of Highland Park High School, well, they are still crystal clear. Being a high school girl, and a junior high girl for that […]
