Bradley and I will be hosting the 12 Conversations discussion here in Nashville. 12 Cities | […]

Sunday Highlights

I’m learning there’s never a dull moment in multi-site ministry… Yesterday I headed to our Dickson Campus to spend the morning.  Things were moving along right on schedule.  We had just finished our program overview meeting and were prepared to do a full run-through of the service when the power went out in the entire […]

Allow Me To Brag

I can remember rummaging through Nan’s purse to find her brag book.  It was always there… usually not too hard to find because she had likely had it out recently to share our pictures with her friends. I loved Nan’s brag book.  It was a tangible reminder of how much she loved me (granted that […]

When You Get to the Letting Go

Control. Direct. Manipulate. Maneuver. Arrange. Plan. Organize. We do these things all the time. We’re always trying to create the outcomes that we want in life. But inevitably, with nearly everything in life, there comes a point when you can no longer plan, control or manipulate the result. There is always something beyond your control. […]

Friday Fun

Whew!  It’s been a full week. It’s Friday… my day for catching up.  My day for reading, running, Cultivate Her planning, errands, writing, dreaming and shopping (if I can fit it in.) Oh and laundry, but I try not to think about that one. I always try to pack more into Friday than I ought […]
