It’s that time of year when I take a few months off from weekly blogging. You will not be left alone, though, as I’ve recruited a handful of my readers to share their stories every Friday through the end of August. So, please enjoy those words of authentic encouragement to keep you afloat!

I will also be offering three one-month e-courses in July to give you a boost mid-Summer, either in your marriage, your divorce or just your life. So be watching for details on those.

But in the meantime, I find myself in an odd season in my life. I’ve talked about this before. I feel so in-between and pretty unsure of what’s next.

I’ve always written along my season of life… mothering when my kids were young, leadership and social justice when I was on staff at church, then difficult marriage and divorce and single parenting and then dating.

But I am not feeling free to delve into remarriage and step-parenting. And so I feel as if I may have run out of things to say.

As of now, I intend to keep running my e-courses and I LOVE holding women’s retreats (contact me to host one in your area!), but beyond that, I have no idea what’s up ahead.

I want to be of service – to God, to my husband, to my children, to my friends, to my church, and to women in need of hope – but the how is very murky for me right now, with nothing beckoning me onward.

So, as I sign off for a few months, I’m asking you – my sweet, faithful, loyal, supportive readers – for prayer. For clarity, for direction, for deeper healing and connection with Jesus, for renewed (or even a new) passion.  And I would also ask, that if there is something I am not offering that you wish I would, that you would consider emailing me your thoughts.

Here’s to hoping for sweet moments with those we love and a heart full of gratitude to recognize and celebrate them.

Gratefully yours,


Taking a few moments to sit quietly and focus your heart and mind on Jesus is one of the best things you can do for yourself spiritually, mentally, emotionally and even physically. Enjoy this free gift of guided meditations.

you're just moments away from calm!
