And yet, each time I sent out my resume it felt as if I was shouting into a dark, deserted hallway; nothing but an echo returning from […]

Learning to Pivot in the Midst of Crisis


Faith

After 32 years of living, you would think I could recognize it by now, but I still struggle to see it when it’s happening. The invitation to pivot, to change directions and seek out a new path, is often born out of a sense of crisis. What feels like an ending is really a new […]

How to Hold On To Peace While Pursuing Your Dreams


Faith

I can think of few things as exhilarating as launching a new dream. Pursuing our passion stretches us in ways we could never imagine. We wear new hats, meet new people, learn new tricks, and try new things. It’s pure joy and adrenaline! That is, until the fear sets in. When God first called me […]

So, You Have a Dream…


Off The Blog

Hey there, Mama. What are you dreaming about these days? Do you have a small business budding in the corner of your heart? A side-hustle you think about while folding clothes? I’ve been there. In fact, I’m still there. Nearly seven years ago I founded a small non-profit organization called Expectant Heart Pregnancy Center (EHeart). It was […]
