This is such a post to write. Recently, I shared that I was cutting back on a few tangent projects to focus on promoting my book, Tell It Well. Last weekend was the culmination of all that focus. I got to fly up to Michigan and speak to five different [...]
When I’ve felt distant from God, I’ve also felt apathetic about our relationship. Like any relationship, when there’s distance, it also feels one sided. I’ve said things like, God, I’m seeking you, and you’re not showing your face, or, Lord, I’ve been praying about this for so long, why are [...]
Have you ever felt stuck by fear of the unknown? What do you do when you’re faced with uncertainty? Do you kick it into high gear and work to remove every factor of uncertainty you can identify? Or do you distract yourself, hoping that by ignoring the the tension of [...]
Is God real? Is he actually involved in my life, or just out in the universe somewhere? Am I following God, or does this just feel right because it’s what I want to do? These aren’t easy questions to ask. They are vulnerable, raw. They are scary to ask, because [...]

I have a dream of seeing women come together and encourage one another to embrace the beauty they possess. I believe that once we embrace our beauty we are more able to share it with the world. I want to see women speaking truth and life into each other. I want to see women overcoming the jealousy and comparison we so easily fall into by celebrating beauty in ourselves and those around us.
This is going to be a fun Really Hard Question for all of you dreamers out there! I’m a firm believer that big dreams are given to us to do something with, but I also know how paralyzing big dreams can be. That’s why today I want to answer the [...]
