When the words aren't there...

Hi, dear friends.

It has been way too long since I last posted and wrote original content.

But, the delay has been for good reason.

The words haven't been there.

The emotions have been deep. The thoughts have thorough and wide. The words to encapsulate these thoughts and emotions in writing, however, have not been there. 

I have gone through some incredible life changes over the past few months (new home, new job, many ways). My focus, thoughts, time, and emotions have been on fully establishing this new life that I love deeply. Because of this, I haven't had the words to write it all down. I haven't had the mental space to give this craft...this creative space...the time it deserves. I haven't had the drive and specific focus to give you, my reader and friend, the time and excellence that you deserve.

If there is one thing that I always want to be as a writer and creative person, it is this:


I'm not going to put on a show and write for the sake of writing or post for the sake of posting. I never want to do anything half-way. If the passion isn't behind it, I am not going to do it. I don't ever want my writing and blog to be a "fake it till I make it" endeavor. I want to it be an genuine interaction between you and me. A genuine inspiration and encouragement with your Wednesday night glass of wine, or Saturday morning coffee. A genuine connection of our worlds, passions, beliefs, and creative qualities. If my voice isn't clear, I don't want to use it. I would rather wait until I have something of value to say.

Talk is cheap.

I want the words I use to make a difference and inspire. I want the words I use to spark a passion in the hearts of others to pursue turning their ordinary into the extraordinary and to live out their God-given destiny to the very fullest. I want the words I use to make a difference and not just take up cyber space.

So here are my words, genuine and true. I'm filled with eager anticipation as to how creative juices, thoughts, and inspiration will flow in this new season of life. I'm so glad that you're along for the journey with me.



  1. This feels like your most authentic/real/honest/true post yet! Can't wait to see what will come but will wait patiently :)

  2. Thank you so much, my dear! Looking forward to it also :-)
