Every time I sit at this computer to write, I share a little bit of who I am with whomever stops over to read. Sometimes I’m funny, sometimes I’m sarcastic (who, me???), sometimes I’m sad or frustrated. Even when I’m sharing a sponsored post, I chose them carefully and try to make sure that those things that are me show through.
Even though I write about “whatever I want” here in this space…lately I’ve found some things I want to write about…that still don’t seem to fit here. So when I was offered a chance to contribute to my church’s blog, I jumped at the chance.

It just felt weird to say it out loud because I’d always thought of my time with God as private….special for me. I’d grown up having developed the analogy of God being much like the Force, as described to Luke Skywalker by Yoda (and I’ll proudly admit to using that same analogy with my kids)… I held the Force of God deep inside of me, deep in my heart. To bring the rest of the world in sort of felt like kiss and tell.
It wasn’t until I had children that this changed…. Read the rest of my greatness
This is going to be a unique experience for me. If you’d like to read more, (or if you are just nosy … that’s okay too) feel free to check out the blog at Plymouth Church in Lawrence, KS.
