• Dream Bigger

    I woke up with a heaviness because my mind was going a million times a minute. The old me -- who am I kidding, this very well may have been me last week -- would have allowed the thoughts to consume me: What about this? How about that? Could it even work?

  • Morning Journal Entry: Day 24

    I keep waiting for this feeling to come over me but God gave me a gentle reminder just now that faith isn’t a feeling. I think sometimes I get caught up in remembering the moments when I did “feel” something.…

  • 13 Things I’ve Learned Not Speaking: Day 6

    Of course all of this applies to yesterday but I’m posting on what is considered DAY 6!! That means only TWO more full days. Technically I CAN talk today but because the doc said it would be great if I…
