To Be Honest…
The reality is when we skip over being human, we skip over the opportunity to allow the Savior to be our Savior. Here in the mess- the humanness of our hearts is exactly where we meet our closest friend. We invite Jesus into the mess. I have to be honest with myself and with Jesus…
The Weekly Goods- Connecting Our Body and Heart
When I picture Jesus viewing my heart, I want to pull his arm to the more beautiful engaging and colorful flowers of my garden. But in His sweet tenderness, He leads me back to this ignored and pushed away area.
A January Recap for Wholistic Hearts
Time to do our monthly recap of The Wholistic Hearts podcast. We kicked off the 2021 year with pursuing wholehearted, holistic living. We are called to live a life abundantly, and I believe it is when we step into wholeness with our whole heart, mind, soul, and spirit. Each episode was deliberate picked for the…
Pursuing Holistic Living through Self-Care
Jesus said, “You must love your neighbor in the same way you love yourself.” Sometimes we can forget the second half of this verse. Jesus grouped it into one of the most important commandments!

You Can’t Make This S*$#% Up
I’m gonna say it. I think my testimony will be called, “You can’t make this shit up.” I know, that’s offensive to some of you. It was to me, too. And that’s okay. But really…Holy Spirit is wild and so very liberating. When I first started learning about the Holy Spirit, the wildest things were…
