Quick Takes

quick takes: crazy idea Edition.

July 26, 2013

{One} Normally I’m one for suspense, so when I name a post “crazy idea edition” the crazy idea is usually at the end. Today…not so much. I’m wrapping up a week of Totus Tuus as you read hits and I’ve been reflecting a lot this week on conversion stories and how much I adore hearing them and…


quick takes: post vacation Edition.

July 19, 2013

{One} I AM BACK, Y’ALL! All Southern accents aside (and believe me, mine came back!), I’m actually really excited to be back! On my first day back from vacation I found that happy joy that us type-A personality folks get from getting things done. My to-do list was quite epic, but sitting down and accomplishing all…


quick takes: actual vacation Edition!

July 12, 2013

{One} VACATION! I think that’s enough said about that, right? You know that’s where I’m at (you know, my undisclosed location), and we can move on from there, right? Okay, I’m glad you agree. {Two} Ever since I finished reading Pride & Prejudice I’ve been thinking about this quote: 


quick takes: vacation brain Edition.

July 5, 2013

{One} Blogger confession: I wrote this on Monday of this week. Why? Because I know that if I write it any later in the week you will get nothing but gibberish because my brain is already mentally checking out…vacation! Depending on when you are reading this bit-o-random-ness I’ll be on a plane, in a car, and…


quick takes: musically happy Edition.

June 28, 2013

{One} If it is still morning when you are reading this, then I am in my final hours of Vacation Bible School and the ten days of ministry chaos. The end is in sight and vacation is only one week away! Steubenville of the Rockies was a smashing success last weekend, my teens all loved it…


quick takes: retreat weekend Edition.

June 21, 2013

{One} The blog hit 300 posts this week! Monday marked my 300th blog post ever (which is still a little mind boggling to me), and I celebrated with a new blog design and general sprucing up of ALL the pages! Take a look around and let me know what you think of the new design! Also…if…


quick takes: totally hot Edition.

June 14, 2013

{One} It was hotter (at least temperature wise) in Colorado this week than it was in Lebanon. Sometimes I like to Google places that I think *should* be hotter than it is in Colorado just to compare. This week I came up short. It was hot here, and it came near to 100 degrees on a…


quick takes: one year later Edition.

June 7, 2013

{One} One year ago this past Wednesday (June 5th), I finished the very first draft of Worthy! It is so beautiful to see it come full circle, to see it published and be able to hold it in my hands. The bits of feedback I’ve gotten from readers so far have been absolutely wonderful and I’m SO…


quick takes: calming down Edition.

May 31, 2013

{One} May in rewind: The book came out. It has been doing so well that it is STILL on sale on Amazon. The blog broke its own record for the busiest day ever. Twice. First with “just don’t say it: Singlehood” and then again with “raise your Standards.” The blog has never seen as much…


quick takes: spring is here Edition!

May 24, 2013

{One} There are days when I’m still just totally blown away at God’s goodness. Should it be every day? Yes, and in some way I suppose He blows me away every day. However, there are days that it is more apparent than others, such as days when I see Him using little ole me to…


quick takes: the published author Edition!

May 17, 2013

{One} Where to begin?! This week has been a total whirlwind of beauty and excitement that cannot be contained in mere words! The book came out! It is now available on Amazon, Kindle, and CreateSpace. Oh, and of course you can still buy signed copies here! From the bottom of my heart, thank you all…


quick takes: so close Edition.

May 10, 2013

{One} Y’all. The book comes out Tuesday. That’s like…four days away. Which is like…96ish hours. Less than 100 hours. I can’t believe it!!!!!! Normally I’m not one who uses a zillion exclamation marks but I think this calls for it. I wrote a book. It gets released on Tuesday. God is SOOOOOO GOOD. (p.s. don’t…
