The Importance of Dad

I’ve written before about my father and the things he taught me in his short life and this Father’s Day I will remember and honor his wisdom once again.

Duolingo Spanish Lessons

I used to be bilingual; I spoke West Texan and broken German. It has been years since I conversed in German, yet there is still much I understand when I hear it spoken.

Grace For The Day

Grace. I love what the word grace does for my soul and for the possibility of all it holds. Grace for the day; grace for the way, baby. Having a saving grace, saves. Burdened with sin; blessed with grace. Grace. I wrote this post in 2014 for Sweet E, but it resonates with me, with […]

What I’ll Tell Sweet E: Feel It All

My sweet little man, each time I sit down to write what I know, I wonder if I’ll be able to do my emotions justice by my words.  Emotions are the best part of being who we were born to be; they’re the colors we use to draw outside all the lines, baby. You’re going […]
