Finding Freedom: A Pride Month Devotion

I have made it a practice these past few years to spend time during the month of June to purposely write about how I see passages of scripture differently now. I guess you might say they are words of pleading for my more conservative siblings in the faith to reconsider their position on the LGBTQ… Continue reading Finding Freedom: A Pride Month Devotion

Lessons from a late newlywed – Part 5: Building Blocks

For Trung and I, last summer was the season of building – and I mean actual construction. We started two projects at the beginning of the summer: A shed and a kitchen remodel. Yes, we are a bit crazy I guess. The shed – let me just brag a bit – is amazing, and Trung… Continue reading Lessons from a late newlywed – Part 5: Building Blocks

Rescuing the Story of God

If you were to ask my kids what I was like as a mom, I’m sure they would have a number of both good and not so good things to say (after all, I’m not perfect and they are in their 20’s and figuring out who they are because of and in spite of their… Continue reading Rescuing the Story of God

The creativity of “calling”

Another version of the road less traveled

As much as I love to hike locally, hiking in Boulder is a “get out early or deal with crowds” type of hike. There are usually a lot of people out on the trails – and for good reason! The view is great, you can find trails of any level, and … well, it’s Colorado.… Continue reading Another version of the road less traveled

Can we let them represent?

A friend of mine and her husband do something really cute. Each year, they get one of those small square flip calendars that has one page for each day, showing what day it is to celebrate. Like National Chocolate Chip Cookie day, or National Ballet Day or National Sock Day. Then they do just about… Continue reading Can we let them represent?

Pride month gets personal

June is pride month, and I realize its been two years since I posted anything specifically on this topic. Granted, this time last year I was getting ready for my own wedding so my mind was just a BIT pre-occupied…. This year though, I’ve been a bit more thoughtful of what I wanted to post.… Continue reading Pride month gets personal

Lessons of a (late) newlywed, Part 4: Out of the Shadows

A good friend of mine recently sent me a copy of Sarah Bessey’s new book “A Rhythm of Prayer”, and have been reading it little by little. Today, I read the benediction even though I’m not even half way done. Why? because.. well because why read it in order? It got me thinking. There are… Continue reading Lessons of a (late) newlywed, Part 4: Out of the Shadows
