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,
