  • Growing up with migraine

    I grew up with migraine, it was like another member of the family. Always there, sometimes quiet, sometimes not but, always pretty need.

    I spent my childhood in waiting rooms; chiropractors, neurologists, nutritionists all for my 4 year old brother who was getting daily attacks. As a child there were times this was fun. I would get to miss…read more

    • Living with chronic migraines can be a long-term journey, and it’s important to remember that you’re not alone. There are support groups, online communities, and resources available where you can connect with others who have similar experiences. Sharing your story and connecting with fellow “migraine warriors” can provide a sense of understanding,…read more

    Trust God's Timing

    In life where moments intertwine
    There’s a thread called trust
    In God’s timing divine
    For in his design, he holds a plan
    With his loving hands, he unfolds the perfect moment

    When doubts drives your heart, patience wanes
    But remember that he hears your prayers and that they are not in vain
    With days uncertain, paths remain unclear
    When the…read more

      Each note carefully composed, every instrument in its place
      The highs and lows, the crescendos and decrescendos
      In God’s perfect timing, the melody unfolds
      When impatience tugs at your soul’s core
      Remember that God’s timing is always more
      Than what our limited minds can comprehend
      He weaves together every beginning and end

  • Dear Daddy

    Dear Daddy,
    My earliest memory of you was getting a goodbye kiss in the morning before you would go off to work. I would have my head on the pillow and you leaned down, gave me a kiss on the cheek and say I will see you tonight. I was the oldest of 3 girls so I had some special alone time with you. For example, when I was about 8 years old…read more

  • Thank you Grandpa Herby

    Dear Grandpa,

    It’s been nearly 25 years since I last saw you, and what I remember most about you is how you made me feel. Whether at dinner on the holidays, playing cards, or sitting in your living room telling stories, you lived with a joy and zest for life that was so effortless, natural, and contagious.

    Growing up, you were very a…read more

    #amwriting on Twitter

    A beautiful thought too hot to swallow
    I’d chirp and choke instead of sit and settle
    a small inspired smile.

    I’d write 160 characters and move on
    instead of rest to grow a full poem, story or song.

    I’d gain hearts and attention
    loose intention, diligence, and wholeness.

    It was time to move on. let go of those I followed and the thousands that…read more

    Leaving your 9-5 with Your Inner Child

    Hear me out. What does your inner child have to do with leaving your adult 9-5? Well for me, I don’t resonate with my job and never have resonated with working for someone else who clearly doesn’t value you as a person.

Recently my inner child reminded me when I was younger adults use to always say you can do anything you want or set your mind to, I truly believe that now; as an adult. Keep pursuing your dreams, you got this !
