SO. One day you wake up and you realize something has to change. You are so unbelievably exhausted you don’t even recognize yourself in the mirror. Your relationships are really suffering- with your spouse, friends, family, even with yourself. How did you get to this place? Where did you go wrong? You thought working hard was […]

Just a little reminder that you are beautiful just the way God made you. As someone who has struggled with this many years of my life, I want you to know that your SOUL is so much more important! Check out this excerpt from an article written by Billy Graham: We tend to put all […]

In a self-centered world I think it’s important to remember there is always someone out there who is in need of encouragement! It’s so easy to get caught up in our own lives and forget this. I think a quote, bible verse, text, email, phone call or even better, a hand written note, can make […]

Morning y’all! One of my goals this year was to have more time to blog and write. I hear people say all the time that they don’t have time to read blogs. I think if we are ALL honest with ourselves, we can make time for anything if we really WANT to. I used to […]

More than nineteen hundred years ago, there was a Man born contrary to the laws of life. This Man lived in poverty and was reared in obscurity. He did not travel extensively. Only once did He cross the boundary of the country in which He lived; that was during His exile in childhood. He possessed […]

I haven’t shared this story with many people, but I am going to today! I am on a mission for many things, but one is to reach others who may have similar experiences in life, or are just in need of encouragement. 🙂 When I was 5 years old, I distinctly remember being on the […]

Simply….I love people, I love life, and my purpose is to connect with you, give you a gift of memories you’ll always have…..for you, your kids, your grandkids, and so on. I am sure every artist has a reason for doing what they do. I feel very strongly, this business is not about ME…This quote […]

Last night a group of my friends and I met up at McCrady’s restaurant for a “going away” dinner for our friend Tanesha. (That will be another post!) We were all sitting at a table together near a big window that looked out onto Unity Alley. There was this dapper gentleman, hanging out with a […]

Mother’s day was really hard for me this year. My mom has been gone for 3 years now and for whatever reason this year, it hit me hard. I knew going to church would be tough for me. I knew the sermon would be about moms and I would be forced to sit with my […]

Do you remember this about 3 years ago on facebook? It was called “25 random things about me,” that people were posting and sharing. I thought it was great! People posted some of the funniest and most interesting things, alot of which I didn’t know about them. I think it’s a great way to get […]

Haha! Okay, so jokes aside….I have been wondering the same thing. Everytime I think, man, I need to do a blog post, I get so overwhelmed! Part of it is because I have a gazillion things to do, but the other is writer’s block…..or maybe I should call it in general “artist’s block.” I have […]
