Wait, That Wasn’t the Plan!

My plan was perfect. I had it all worked out down to the days and hours that I would get stuff done. The only problem with my plan is it was just that ... MY PLAN. It wasn't HIS plan. At the start of the year, I had a renewed sense of direction. I knew what I wanted to accomplish with or through Discovering Me, and nothing was going to get in my way. The recalibrating was done, and my focus was clear. And yet, on March 14, 2017, I found myself saying, "Wait, that wasn't the plan!"

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.

What’s in a Song?

Power. Emotion. Truth. Humor. Freedom. Love. I could list words forever in answer to the question, "What's in a song?" Over the course of my 39-year life, I have come to appreciate the significance of music. Whether music is to entertain, move, tell a story, or express that perfect emotion the point is music matters. Music matters to me. Without a doubt, there are certain songs that have more meaning and represent various aspects of my life. My desire is to share some of the songs that have impacted me then, now, and forever.
