Technological Clutter: Time to Purge

Yesterday, I spent my entire day going through the garage with my husband as a continuation of the #ruthlessdeclutterchallenge we started weeks ago. It was supposed to be a week-long declutter challenge hosted by Emily Ley that would encompass the whole house but 1) I work outside of the house 4 days of the week … Continue reading Technological Clutter: Time to Purge

Currently Reading: Bandersnatch

Well, to be truthful, I've just finished the book. I had to wait until the very end to write this because it stretched me and I needed to know where it finished. The title alone tells you that this book falls wildly outside of the ordinary. The author manifests a purposefully unconventional approach to Christianity … Continue reading Currently Reading: Bandersnatch

Currently Watching: The True Cost

I am an organization junkie. I don't have all of the acrylic containers, expensive food storage, or wicker baskets to prove it but believe me when I tell you that I research this stuff constantly. I follow well known organizers on social media. I buy their books. I participate in their online challenges. I use … Continue reading Currently Watching: The True Cost

Currently Reading: Daring Greatly

2018 is shaping up to be the year of books for me and I. am. not. mad. about it. After finishing Start with Why, I picked up Brené Brown's Daring Greatly. It belongs to a really good girlfriend of mine who may or may not remember I still have it. Surprise! It's still heeeeeere! The timing wasn't … Continue reading Currently Reading: Daring Greatly

I have a goal to read 12 books this year. So far, I have 2 completed and am 67% through another: Simon Sinek's Start with Why.

In his book, … Continue reading Currently Reading: Start with Why

A 3 Year Old’s Goodbye

I'm currently sitting in the airport which is a place I haven't been in quite some time. I'm traveling for work, making my way to a 6 day training which will end with some new certifications and knowledge about how to better support my team. 6 days. With an additional day devoted to travel. It's … Continue reading A 3 Year Old’s Goodbye

Reviewing the KonMari Method: Over a Year Later

I downloaded Marie Kondo's Spark Joy on my Kindle the other day and read through the chapters in a matter of hours. The new year is full of resolutions and while tidying wasn't on the forefront of mine, seeing my friends engage in their first reading of The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up inspired me to check out … Continue reading Reviewing the KonMari Method: Over a Year Later

Snow Camp and Rule Breakers

This past weekend I headed north with 700+ students, my fellow small group leaders (Aren't we a good-looking bunch?), coaches and church staff to SpringHill Camp for what is lovingly referred to as "Snow Camp" 2018 edition. I usually take a lot of flack around this time of year. Everyone loves reminiscing about my very … Continue reading Snow Camp and Rule Breakers

Word of 2018: Engage

I received a Day Designer planner from my parents for Christmas and immediately devoured the annual planning pages. In previous years, I've chosen a phrase or a Bible verse as my inspiration for the year but I'm letting my new planner set the course this time around. As such, I've limited myself to one lone … Continue reading Word of 2018: Engage
