Two Turtle Doves

November is a month of remembrance and gratitude for most Americans as we prepare our hearts for Thanksgiving. But, it holds  particularly deep meaning for me...especially this year. Thirty-five years ago November 7th I faced into death and was given life. Thirty-five years ago, despite being given a 30% chance of survival, God carried me through a delicate and grueling nine-hour procedure to wire my severely broken neck back together. And standing beside me through it all was a tall basketball player from Bethel University who has never wavered in all the ups and downs that life has thrown our way.

 

With a heart full of thanksgiving to God...I dedicate these little thoughts to my hubby.

A letter to my precious friend Alyn... in heaven.

Where heaven touches earth...

    I’m turning 60 next month. I can hardly believe it myself. But, I’ve decided that I no longer want to live comfortably. I want to live with a spirit of adventure like I had in the past. To be unafraid of what’s new or different. I want to remain so open to the Spirit of the living God that his love compels me to go wherever he leads me.

    I am passionate about people leaning into all that Jesus is. You. Me. Us. Journeying together with God. This is my greatest blessing. And now that my kiddos are out on their own, I’m learning to navigate my new normal. And I am finding there is life after little ones and teens after all!

    Just when I thought life couldn’t get any more full and chaotic, we’re excited to announce a third baby will enter into our home and surely our hearts this summer. The daily grind of cleaning up Cheerios, preschool drop off, and potty training can often seem mundane and insignificant. But I’ve noticed too many parallels with God as our Father to know that simply isn’t true. In my words and stories, I hope to share exactly that—how Jesus is in this motherhood season with me and how His thumbprint makes it’s way into even the ordinary, most surprising of places.
