Gentlemen's Academy

Somehow, I have become the mom sitting by the mirrors outside the men's dressing room, while the sons try on jackets, pants, shirts, and vests to wear to Homecoming. More importantly, these guys have become tall enough, broad enough, and particular enough to wear clothes that require a tape measure for specificity and fit. (We […]

The Collective Reflective

Have you noticed? We have become people who are counting. We are counting things. We are counting days. We are counting people on the walking trail. Counting people who are sick - and even sweeter, counting the people who have recovered. We have stepped into the forest, and we can literally count the trees. One […]

Grace Lives in the Inevitable

What advice would you give to the younger you? ⠀ ⠀ “Love Hard.  Especially because I now know what that would cost me... to love hard. And I would do it all again. I wouldn’t have spared myself any of the pain that I have gone through by loving hard, and by loving what death […]

I Have This Theory.

I have this theory.  It's tested but unproven, and I'll never know if it's true as long as I'm on this side of heaven.  But in all the ways that theories come to be, I believe I hold a solid contention. My theory is this. When you lose someone you love, when they get to […]

The Sparkling Moment

I have wanted to meet her for a long time. Natalie Goldberg is the queen bee of memoir, and she taught me everything I know. Or it seems that way. I fell in love with Writing Down the Bones six years ago, and I've been carrying some version of her books in my writing bag […]

The Day Seth Godin Congratulated Me on Writing a Bestseller

Bustling through the Denver International Airport, I followed Peter into the Tattered Cover to see if they carried You Can Do This. (It's a joy to be married to one who champions my writings and believes, "yes, of course, we will see it in this bookstore. And every bookstore. They're fools not to carry it! […]

On the Air: Focus on the Family

It was a Full Circle moment in my life, to be invited to join Jim Daly and John Fuller to record an episode of The Daily Broadcast with Focus on the Family.  The thing is, I grew up on a healthy dose of James Dobson's voice in my ear every day, in the kitchen and […]

Legendary Tales from a Baseball Bride

In the revolutionary way Peter has of getting me on board with things I’ve never cared about, I am learning to be a baseball bride. The man loves the Rockies, and somehow, against all odds, he’s got me drinking the purple KoolAid. We went to see a game last week for Peter’s birthday. He’s a […]

A Diamond Ring

Once upon a time, there was a curly girl and a handsome man, a cup of coffee and a diamond ring, and a million ways to say yes to one very important question. I headed into Starbucks on Friday morning to make lattes and frappuccinos for the morning shift. Peter had casually mentioned that he […]

My Debut Into Talk Radio

”Can you be there on Monday at 11:00?” he asked. His name is Moose, perhaps in part because all radio producers have a schtick, though perhaps his nickname came about long before he started on radio.  He seems like a Moose. He produces Angie Austin’s radio show, The Good News with Angie Austin, and they […]

100 Huntley Street: My Entrance Into Live TV

I’d venture to say that not every television anchor is willing to share the makeup room with the random and ever-changing “guest on today’s show.”  It’s kind of an intimate space, that room of transformation.  But Moira Brown is not just every television anchor, and there we sat, side by side in the makeup chairs […]

Never Miss The Real Win

I’ll admit, I still have kind of a hard time knowing who has the ball and what’s happening next on the football field at Tucker’s games.  Keeping score takes my full attention, which - let’s be honest - is usually divided by the younger of my two distractions, so when they throw in some penalties […]

That Moment When I was Ridiculous with Jon Acuff

I feel like I can call Jon Acuff my friend because it's a liberty I need to take, since one of my worst professional moments happened when he and I were eating lunch in the green room of a conference where we were each speaking. I'm telling you, I was an idiot. We were backstage […]

Great Big Amazing News

"Hey, guys?  I have some great big amazing news. Want to hear it?" I taunt them because every great bit of news needs a great introduction. "Yes, Mommy!  Yes!" And Life Comes Back is a finalist for a 2015 Christian Book Award! "Are you ready?" "We're ready!  Tell us!" I told them that my book, and life comes […]

Made in 1955

My phone rang a few minutes after 6:00 this morning. Since it is January, it felt like 3:30 am. It was my dad. As soon as my mind registered that it was him, and that today is his birthday - his great big splashy 60th birthday, no less - I felt sure he was calling […]

The Thing About Timehop

Timehop is this time capsule app that lets you see exactly what pictures and updates you posted on this exact date in history, and I happen to think it's pretty much the best app to ever hit Facebook. Sometimes I'm dramatic, but I do think I might be right about this. See, the best and […]

Sometimes an opportunity pops up between the cracks of the sidewalk, and  you just know that you know that you know it will be a moment of all moments. Anne Lamott came to my town, to my bookstore (which I fervently all my own since I guess I believe a girl should put her name on the […]
