Where in the World was Making the Most? Our New Home

I think there are a few reasons for my absence: 1. Busyness: somehow in all of this mess we seem to remain extremely busy. 2. Writer's Block: I never know what to say fully, and it's been hard to really nail down what message I am sending with this blog and how to best say it. 3. Fear: I know, for someone who's written a book about fear, it seems hypocritical for me to land here, but as I mention in the book, I have, by no means, arrived at perfection in the areas of fear and anxiety.

Welcoming 2020

Yet another year has passed, and here I am on the first of the year again wondering where the year went and why I haven't written.

But as of today, I have two more assignments to complete—and four days…

As we approach Christmas, awaiting the gifts from Santa underneath the tree, but most importantly, awaiting the celebration of the birth of Christ, I am seeing more and more each day the word "anticipation."

I feel as though this is something ordinary that has been discussed every year. Somehow, I feel as though I missed it in years past. This year, that word-it is standing out to me as I await new things. Yet sometimes what we anticipate…

One Word 4.0 {with a FREE Printable!}

Because I am a creature of habit, I decided once again that I must choose a word for 2017 and attempt to live by it as my focus for the year. While the purpose of One Word 365 is to skip the resolutions and focus on the one word, I continue to set goals but keep my focus on this one word throughout the year and continually gauge whether I am on track or not and whether or not my goals align with this one word. I failed miserably last year.  My goal was to live out my year as…
