That Escalated Quickly

I’ve been a bit preoccupied to do Seven Quick Takes for a few weeks. The first week, I had a show out of town. Then I started my fourth 14-day challenge. Then the world completely lost its mind. I hope you are keeping some semblance of “normal.” One thing...

That moment when…

Some moments are awkward. Some are emotional. Some are comical. Some moments just are. This week’s seven quick takes is about my big moments this week. When you become an “older” woman On Saturday, we hosted our second annual ladies’ day with our congregation. We served brunch and worshiped...

Surprises and Presence

All Because of a Hairclip

Some people com into our lives and quickly go. Others stay awhile, leaving footprints on our hearts and we are never ever the same.                     On October 15, I became a consultant. What I didn’t know, is I’d found my...

Strength lies in numbers. The more members in a group, the more manpower and resources. Well… Maybe. That truly depends on the kids of members in the group. Most groups operate on an 80/20 rule: 80% of the work is done by 20% of the people. There are leaders,...

Organizing the Chaos

For several months, I’ve been doing live videos on Facebook (and also sharing them on YouTube). An unintentional result is piles of notes all over the desk. I’ve been working harder at keeping my notes all in a journal instead of whatever piece of paper is nearest, but sometimes,...

Surfing the Waves

After a seven month hiatus from writing, I’m back. This seven quick takes will highlight more than the previous week because so much has happened. Writing again is just the thing I need to be doing, even when it also seems like the hardest thing to do.  Getting through...

Becoming a WaveMaker

In 2019, I started doing live videos on Facebook. I completed three separate 14-day challenges to go live every day for two weeks. My consistency outside of the challenges wavered at times, but not ever to the point I stopped doing them. At some point in the year, I...
