IMG_2337
So this is way overdue, but I’m still getting use to this blogging thing… vā-ˈkā-shən, – a period of suspension of work, study, or other activity, usually used for rest, recreation, or travel; recess or holiday And this is exactly what we did a couple weekends ago in the Big...

Into the world of talent management I go – {the divine journey}

IMG_2114
I’ve always known that my career calling is not to be an engineer.  But staying here was comfortable.  It was familiar.  And quite frankly, it was easy.  Now don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with being comfortable, but joy and peace are far better.   God expects and directs...

RIP Target: 21 years as a faithful feline friend

Target Kitten
Target has been my faithful feline friend for most of my life. I picked her from a litter of kittens from another local farmer when I was 8 years old. She has been my responsibility and faithful feline friend for the past 21 years seeing me through grade school,...

Choux à la crème

Choux a la creme
Growing up, my mom always made us Choux à la crème – the fancy french version of cream puffs.  In fact, I’m pretty sure my mom was eating them throughout her pregnancy.  One day she thought she was having cramps from eating these delectable mini puffs, but turns out, they...

Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes

Pumpkin Spice Cupcake
In honor of our 6 month anniversary… So if you know me, you know that I heart cupcakes – so much that I started a side business Cupcake Delight.  My most popular flavor has always been the Pumpkin Spice Cupcake:  a pumpkin infused cupcake topped with cream cheese frosting and...

40 days – Until I’m Married

40 days, there’s something significant about the 40 days before a change. The number 40 is used throughout the Bible to indicate a period of probation or trial. The Israelites wandered for 40 years (Deut. 8:2-5). Moses was on the mount for 40 days (Exodus 24:18); 40 days of...

Engaged by God’s Goodness

2010 has been another year of life lessons where God regularly humbles me with reminders that I’m not in control of very much at all. Several key changes serve as the reminder — I transitioned to a new role and environment at work; my small group for 4+ years,...

TLW Aconcagua: Donate, Give Water, Accumulate Experiences

I know that you’ve heard of the many needs around the world of those in poverty and those without clean drinking water (more stories). Is the problem too big for you to solve? Yes! But, can you solve it for just a few (starfish story), or maybe all of...

My Father – Deserving of Honor and Respect

Every so often we’re hit with these moments where greatness is displayed. The thing is, greatness doesn’t show up in the midst of bright lights, crowds or power. I immediately think of our Lord Jesus in the garden of Gethsemane where he prays “My Father, if it is possible,...

Celebrating Mom’s Strength

I think there are a lot of things that we don’t share with each other for some reason or another.  I hope that I don’t continually miss the opportunity to share. I believe that one of the tactics of Evil is to keep us isolated where we believe lies...

Dream Session – April 2010

When was the last time you daydreamed? Have you dreamed about life goals, ambitions and the full life? Let’s dream dreams that are destined to fail without divine intervention. Some of us have dreams that we never talk about or pursue. Some of us share the same dream and would...

Valentines 2010: Live boldly. Love boldly.

Live boldly. Love boldly. A great idea, but how exactly do we do this? Valentine’s Day is right around the corner — Do we cringe at the thought of sappy declarations of love, pink teddy bears and over-priced flowers? Or do we consider that this may be a prime...
