You Are Enough

One of the areas of life that I’ve constantly struggled with is defining my worth. We all have different definitions of what makes us valuable members of society. “My worth is in my job.” “My worth is in being a good parent.” “My worth is in being a good child.” “My worth is defined by what others think of me.” “My worth is in how...

Make My Messes Matter

One of my favorite songs to listen to recently has been Jupiter by Sleeping At Last. The line from the chorus repeatedly runs through my head. “Make my messes matter. Make this chaos count. Let every little fracture in me Shatter out loud.” There seems to be so many people around me who “have it all together”. Social media tells me every day that my friends...

Book Review: How We Love | Milan & Kay Yerkovich

This is the book I’m probably most proud of finishing. While it’s not excessively long and it’s certainly not boring, this book takes a lot of determination to get through. The depth of content in How We Love led me to spend at least nine months reading, pondering, journaling, having conversations, and then re-reading sections. If this book is approached with patience it can be...

Ramblings…God’s Discipline | Hebrews 12

This week I’ve been struggling to hand over my worry to God. I find myself doubting at times that God really has my best interest in mind. As I’ve wrestled with my tendency to try and control my surroundings through worry I came across this passage. “Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their...

A Peace That Surpasses Understanding

This morning I got to experience one of my favorite verses in a fresh way. I’ve probably read this passage a hundred times – maybe a hundred times in the last two years, but today God revealed it to me in a new way. “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God....

Wanting It Too Much

Every year in April an exclusive sporting event is held just a couple hours from Atlanta. The Masters at Augusta National Golf Course has become a fun tradition to my family as we get together for a 4 day weekend of playing golf, watching the tournament, and eating way too much food. This year one thing that stuck out to me was the added pressure...

Book Review: Essentialism | Greg McKeown

Few books have completely reshaped my thinking on life as much as this one. I came across Matt D. Smith’s article Essentialism several months ago (currently my blog is completely ripped off of his styling). This book challenged a lot of my core beliefs about being busy, staying productive, and in general trying to live a full life. It freed me to explore what’s important...

Two Words I’m Eliminating From My Vocabulary

I read a quote a few years ago that has changed my life. Five years from now, you’re the same person except for the people you’ve met and the books you’ve read. ― John Wooden (I’m not sure if John Wooden was the first one to say this phrase but we’ll credit it to him since that’s what I found on the internet.) Through reading...

A Passion for Automation

Over the past few months there’s been a reoccurring theme in my conversations with friends, the books I’ve read, and the things I’ve listened to. I keep coming across questions like “What excites you?”, “What are you passionate about?” And my personal favorite: “If money, time, and education were not an factor what would you love to do?” As I think through these things I...

Delegating to the Floor

Recently I’ve been listening to a podcast series called Career Tools. One interesting concept they talk about often is the idea of delegating to the floor. The idea behind this is that there is a limited amount of time in the day and in order to increase your productivity there are certain things that can either be handed off to someone else to do or...
