Hey, Girl. Where Have You Been?

That is a GREAT question. Where HAVE I been? My last published blog was April 11, 2017, which was 353 days ago. Wow.  Let me first start by saying I did not take a trip to space. I did not set out to discover if the world is flat then fall off the edge. Nor did I crawl into a hole and hibernate for the last year. In fact, I have been right here in Salt Lake City living life and discovering more and more what it means to learn how to be. But over the course of the year I have done some traveling to see family and friends, and in those travels, I've had moments of great clarity. I love clarity, don't you?

Then Three Became Seven

Everything was all set. Ken and I were going to cook dinner for our house guest on a Sunday evening. Simple. Easy. Casual. Just the three of us. Then three became seven. My husband asked if we could invite a good friend of us all, her husband, and daughter over to dinner as well. My first response: no. I couldn't wrap my head around having a dinner party for six. All the excuses for why I couldn't host six people were racing through my mind. But then I stopped myself and started figuring out how to make it happen.

Why I Love the Shack

Those who know me well, know that I am not much of a reader. That said, I am intentionally reading more especially given that I am a budding author. What author doesn't read? Last July I set out to read The Shack by Wm. Paul Young. The book was given to me several years ago by my grandparents, but it landed where all books land - on the shelf of forgottenness. At the same time I signed up for a Kingdom Writer's Conference in San Diego, and Paul Young was one of the speakers. Made sense to read the book; I am so glad I did! In case you are living under a rock, or just choosing not to be connected to the world right now, The Shack is big news because the movie version released this past weekend. And the movie is just as controversial as the book.
