Exactly as You Are

Be who God knows you to be, not who others want you to be. Remember, you are already perfect in the eyes of the Lord.


The best type of friends are the ones that you don’t realize you’re making memories, you’re just having fun. Take the time to call a friend today, and be sure to poise pad up!


Need a good giggle? Be careful who’s behind the Charmin!

Imperfectly Perfect

I’m here to tell you that it’s okay to be stretched thin and worn and tattered. It’s okay to feel as if you have given every last ounce of yourself and you don’t think you can give an inch more. It’s okay to have a disaster of a house and crying kids and no food in the fridge to eat.

Why? Because you’re real. You’re human. And God loves us just the way we are. Imperfectly perfect.


Rules are made to keep us in check. But at the same time, stretching the rules is sometimes needed, as well. Truth be told, I’ve never been one to follow the rules, anyway…



Forgiveness. Easier said than done. But when you finally release the hold that is weighing you down, you finally feel free again. So put down your cross. No need to bare it anymore. Forgive and let God do the rest.


Just breathe.


Take big breaths and in and out slowly.


This is an excellent exercise for the moments that are escalating recently and you cannot keep up.


I promise.  Concentrate on your breath and the present moment.  All is well.


Change = Growth

Realize that change is necessary for growth.


You aren’t the same person you were 10 years ago.  Nor will you be the same person you are today 10 years from now.


Change can be painful.  Change can be freeing.  But most of all, change is growth, and that’s a beautiful thing.
