In response to my blog last week, "Holding myself sacred," I had a girlfriend reach out with an amazingly practical question - how do I do it? With all of the demands of life, how do I honestly find time to take care of myself without feeling guilty about the things th...

One of my favorite things in all the world is a to-do list. There is just something about writing out all of the things I need to do and then putting a check in each hand-drawn box when I have completed the task. It feels right. I feel accomplished. Laundry (divided o...

In December 1986, I came to know life. In December 2013, I came to know death. And in December 2016, I will come to know the full extent of God's redeeming love and grace.

I am a planner; I always have been. In high school, my eyes were on college. In college, after deciding broadcast journalism was not for me, I focused on law school. Once I got to law school, I worked toward a job. I had been in Birmingham for a little more than a mont...

If you had told me two years ago that I would spend a year exposing my soul to the social media world after my husband died and would follow that up by starting my own website where I would continue to write, I would have told you there was no chance. I am a talker by...
