“Are you tired?  Worn out?  Burned out on religion?  Come to me.  Get away with me and you’ll recover your life.  I’ll show you how to take a real rest.  Walk with me and work with me- watch how I do it.  Learn the unforced rhythms of grace.  I won’t lay anything heavy or ill-fitting on you.  Keep company with me and you’ll learn to live freely and lightly.” Matthew 11:28-30

One of the best things my husband, Chris and I have adopted when we have “intense fellowship” is asking a single question, “what do you need from me right now?”  Yes, one of us drops our pride to ask it and no it isn’t easy.  We don’t always like to ask it, nor do we always like the answers, but here is why it is one of the best questions to ask during those tough moments.

I had a different blog scheduled for today.  I scheduled it for June 19th, unaware of the significance of the day.  I’m ashamed and saddened at the previous sentence, but it’s true.  I don’t think I am alone in that.  Every person is different, regardless of skin color, every journey is different, but I realize […]

In 2012 while living in Nashville and working in the wedding industry, I connected with Lauren Atkinson, an incredible floral designer, dog lover and even more amazing of a person.  Through various events, our friendship grew quickly and we have been blessed to walk many seasons together as friends. The seeds that God planted in […]

“Through it all I’ve learned to live in the season you’re in. I wasn’t always content in some of the seasons of our life. I’ve learned to deal with loss when I lost my mom one week after a stage four cancer diagnosis. I learned to forgive the past quickly when I only had two days to say all I needed to her after our relationship had remained strained for so many years. I learned to be grateful for those two days (and much more) in the months that followed as we moved to Oregon for Bobby’s work. I was alone in my grief on the other side of the country. It was in those 5 months that God met me right where I was. And it was in that season I learned that God had me right where he wanted me to be. I was where I needed to be and didn’t know it. God knew what was coming.  But doesn’t He always?”

Catalyst Women Value:

Experience perspective change, mindset, heart, and attitude change now that you are walking a new path, the path of who God called you to be.

Co-workers and teams no longer are people you interact with, but those you have been entrusted in your circle to impact for their own freedom.

You bring healing, life, and new freedom resources to your family.   You shift to more prescense based as you realize the call for your children and the real battle against them.

You love out of a new place and  detect the real battle against your marriage.  Your mindset and attitude shift from fighting against one another to for each other. 

You see your neighborhood, community, and city as a strategic assignment that God has placed you  in for a purpose.

What is This Really About? What is Happening? Have you stopped to ask yourself that question?  Have any of the events that have transpired triggered you to pause and ponder the details?  Several times I have found myself reading content, listening to reports, and asking something along the W’s- Why, What, Where, When…  At first, […]

  Dreaming Big During a Quarantine Do you remember that dream you once had?  The one that for one reason or another you didn’t follow through with?  We are in odd times, sister.  Unusual.  Something we have never experienced and something I pray we don’t see again.  At least not in this way.   But […]
