When being busy becomes an idol

Being a purpose junkie is very busy work. So much to do. So little time. How can I make the most of every minute? I was rereading my favorite self-help book, The ONE Thing: The Surprisingly Simple Truth Behind Extraordinary Results. I drank in the wisdom of its simplicity.   “What’s your some day goal?” Gary Keller asks, “What is The One Thing...

Why won’t God answer my prayers?

I pray for certain things to change or get better and they don’t. Why won’t God answer my prayers? -J I don’t know. But I can share a story from my life.   Five years ago this month, my father-in-law called. He told us his doctor was sending him in for a heart procedure. They would apply dye and make sure everything...

14 Day Challenge to Declutter our Places & Spaces!

Hi. I’m amy. And I am a complicated person. As I’ve told my friends for years, “It’s not easy being me.” I am high maintenance. Not like The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, but like that statue- The Thinker. Just ask my hair stylist- I drive her crazy. She gives me these gorgeous haircuts and highlights and I wear ponytails and baseball caps. Or...

What God says about the “words” I’m not supposed to use.

For about a year now, I’ve had this strange ritual. It’s as much a part of waking up as making coffee while I rinse my mouth with coconut oil. I can’t do it at the same time I swish around the coconut oil because it requires talking. In the morning. Out loud. When my household is still asleep. I told you...

Good Friday. Bad Decision.

I was avoiding the inevitable. My iPhone was hot in my hand as I clung to the covers. I held it under my pillow and squeezed the side button to snooze it each time the alarm went off. I didn’t want to get up for my morning quiet time because I didn’t want to hear the same crickets serenading a decision I’d been trying to make....

1 thing to try when you feel trapped.

There are crisp mornings when a dense sheet of fog fosters stillness in me. Then it lifts and reveals the day. That kind of fog is okay. But not the mental kind. Not the emotional kind. Not the kind of fog that hides Hope and Goodness and Progress. Not the kind of fog that keeps me stuck in boredom, bad habits, negative seeing,...

Weight accumulates on more than just our bodies.

“Did I look like this before?” Hoping for a better angle, I titled my head sideways as I stopped in front of the long mirror near our bedroom closet. I stared at my legs and wondered, “Did these exercise pants make my legs look like tree trunks last year or have I packed on some winter weight?” I dismissed the question quickly, pretty sure I knew...

This 1 simple thing has totally changed my life.

 I started using the social media site Quora last week. I received an email asking me to answer the following question- How can I discover my purpose on earth? I got goosebumps from head to toe as I read it. This question echoed in the dark hallways of my head for a very long time. But I realized I don’t struggle with...

Live Lighter by celebrating

It’s been a fun fourteen days. This Live Lighter challenge came at the perfect time because I had already promised to lighten up, not knowing I’d be in the midst of some heavy lifting. I love that what I actually need (more so than what I think I need) comes right on time. It always has and I trust it always will. That’s...

Live Lighter by bringing order

I logged off so hard yesterday, I forgot to go online last night and post today’s challenge! I didn’t remember until I was all comfy under the covers anyway. Which means I actually succeeded in living lighter- woo hoo! How about you?   Is this weighing me down? My garage has been a mess for a while now. And it’s one of...
