It's Time to Move!

Yesterday this was my view as our Cross Point Nashville Campus celebrated our last Sunday on Charlotte Ave. What a beautiful day of celebrating the stories, memories and events of the past six years here. And although I’ve spent nearly two years on our relocation it still seems surreal that this Sunday we’ll worship in […]

Accept What Is

“Do not consider what could have been; accept what is and make the most of it.” I found this quote in an old journal.  I wrote it after finding out that I didn’t get a promotion that I desperately wanted and was pretty confident I would get.  I can still remember the hollowed gut feeling […]

A Grey Metal Box & the Longing of a Little Heart

It must have weighed as much as I did.  This hazy grey, metal box that guarded my deepest treasures.  I’d convinced some poor unsuspecting family member to lug this beast from the cobwebby corners of my Nanny’s basement to it’s new hidden home in the back of my closet.  Complete with lock and key, my […]
