Sabbath Sweet Sabbath: Sunday Driving

  Sundays were for going on drives when I was a kid. My parents would load us into the car and we would head out for a day of seeing what we could see. Sometimes the mountains, sometimes the desert, we would take to the back roads just to get out of the house and…

You Want Me to Change the World Where?

  “I just want to do something that makes a difference,” my daughter cried during a phone call with her this week. Work had been rough that day and the job seemed the wrong vehicle for world change. She felt trapped, ineffective, and hopeless. Why couldn’t she have a job that mattered? I feel for…

A Little Celebration

Ah Ha! I thought cupcakes would get your attention. No recipe here today, but every celebration deserves a little sweetness to go with the joy. Lol! This year has been filled with so many amazing things. One of those things was the opportunity to write alongside some pretty great Bible teachers in Heart Renovation: A…

Winds of Change

When the winds of change blow, some people build walls and others build windmills. Chinese Proverb Life has changed dramatically over this past year, so I am changing things up at my website as well. I am still very much a girl who loves a good adventure but my life is more than that. It…

The Upcycled Life

I have spent the better part of a week painting objects found at the thrift store, alongside the road, and tucked inside of barns and storage sheds. No longer wanted or needed by their owners, these things have been cast-off and forgotten. But Susan, a volunteer at Liebenzell USA, saw their potential. She has taken…

Not That Way!

After last week’s article Follow Me to The Place I Will Show You, I thought I would tell you of a time I didn’t do what God asked. I hope it will speak to you if you are struggling to say yes. No, that doesn’t make sense. I can’t be hearing you right. I stood…

Follow Me to The Place I Will Show You

I can do that. My husband and I both had the same reaction at the same moment in church. A guest speaker was sharing of a need he had, and the Holy Spirit whispered, “He’s talking to you.” I love when this happens. Holy Spirit talks. We listen. The we listen part is key. So…

Paddling Through Knee-Deep Waters

When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you.  Isaiah 43:2 We discovered the Elk River in southern Missouri on our last adventure. Beautiful, clear, and lazy, it is a popular place to take a float trip. How could we resist?…

Road Trip: Delivering the News

If you follow me on social media, you know that with summer and its longer days, the wandering has commenced. My husband and I made our way east via the road less traveled . . . literally. This year, we chose to take The Loneliest Highway across the country to see what we could see….

Hey there! Did Ya Miss Me?

Whew! It’s been a while since I have had time to get over here and post. Have you missed me? I have been traveling (That’s what girls on adventure do. Lol!), making a home in Oklahoma, and even doing a little writing. Over the past few weeks, I have been reformatting the Legacy: Living NOW…
