Recovering the Sacred Romance

I’ve listened to 11 Eldredge books in the past few months as part of my recovery process. While driving my car, washing the dishes, taking a walk, sipping tea, I put on an audiobook and allow God to pour Truth and Love into my hungry heart spaces through the voice of John Eldredge. Here’s one…

Losing My Religion

“Hello, my name is Kimberly. I’m a grateful believer recovering from relationship addiction and I’m currently working on falling more in love with Jesus.” This is how I introduce myself every Thursday night at Celebrate Recovery, a Christ-centered 12-step group that offers support for those struggling with any “hurt, habit, or hang-up” rather than any…

under {re}construction

Sometimes you just have to go “hmmm…” when the physical world and the spiritual world seem to mirror each other. Back in August, I received a notification from Bluehost informing me that my web hosting account had been deactivated due to the detection of malicious software (malware) hidden somewhere in the code of my website….

Invisible Love

What’s Love got to do with anything? Why build a whole stinking website only to talk about Love? Because Love is relevant to EVERYTHING. Everything we think and feel and every choice that we make. Everything we believe about God, ourselves, and how the world works. It’s relevant to all of us because we are…

Root Deeper 2 Rise Higher

Pardon me while I mix my metaphors. I am certainly not the first person to write about roots and wings. It’s just that I’ve been getting a very personal and costly education in rooting deeper and rising higher for the past 18 months as God has walked me through the challenges that come along with creating a…

Emerging Braver

It’s amazing how one crisis can so quickly and drastically alter the landscape of your entire life . . . forever.  Last September, I was a stay-at-homeschooling mama, sharing a life and a beautiful two bedroom apartment with my husband and son, adjusting to a recent move to the Bay Area.  Today, I am a…

I’m Doing Everything Wrong

That’s right . . . according to the world’s blueprint for building a successful business, I’m doing everything wrong. I’m NOT publishing regular blog articles. I’m NOT sending regular newsletters. I’m NOT posting regular social media updates. I’m NOT attending networking events. AND, oh yeah . . . I’m NOT charging for my services.  (GASP!)…
