Coming This Sunday: A Brand New Class

I had spent a couple of years without a place to call home on Sunday mornings.  There were no real reasons, I guess, but one week at home had turned into a few weeks, then into a few months, into a straight-up sabbatical from Sunday morning routines. Church and me: we were on a break. […]

Live It Well.

"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 can touch. I wouldn’t change that. I think sometimes we try to protect ourselves from the inevitable, and really, that's where grace is. Grace is in the […]

I Didn't Mean To Say That. On the Radio. Live.

The thing about live radio is that there isn’t an option to edit your own words. What you don’t filter just comes right out. I need a radio filter. That’s what I need. I now have a weekly spot on the radio with The Good News with Angie Austin. It’s a delightful and optimistic talk […]

Look Who's Wearing The Green Apron

Look at this greatness right here. My name is Tricia, and I am a Starbucks barista. It was really kind of the next logical step.  I'm there all the time anyway, so let's just make this official, right? The boys are thrilled that I'll learn how to make frappuccinos, and they're impressed that I'm finally […]

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 […]

Being the Real You in a World of Facebook and Pinterest

I think moms need permission to say my life is not pinnable on Pinterest.  To say, I don't make organic fruit snacks and emboss Christmas cards and have a color-coded organizational system for the playroom.  My home is clean enough to be healthy and dirty enough to be happy.  My goal for today is to […]

When Opportunity Knocks, It's Too Late To Prepare

”You realize you're never going to be invited to speak at this writer’s conference, right?” We are peers, each of us learning the trade, and I felt more than a little bit dashed.  Somehow even a complete stranger can speak into the likelihood of your dreams if you’re not careful. The thing is, I really, really, […]

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 […]

Let Me Tell You Something About Sara Groves

She stood so close to me with her hand on my arm. Her voice is so gentle and her words so intentional in her songs and now in her conversation. Sara Groves and I had shared a stage at a women's event: she sang and led worship, and I told my stories and shared what I'm […]

I'm not Distracted - I just need to Settle In.

I am so ready to write.  And it's going to be perfect and compelling and gripping - even just to write it.  I know it.  I just know it.  How could it not be?  I'm away from home, staying at a hotel until I speak at an event, and this is the most perfect writing […]

And Somewhere Along the Line, I Sold Some Books.

I finished speaking to the crowd, I gathered my bags and boxes of books from backstage, and I made my way out to the lobby, to the half of the merchandise table that would be mine for the morning and afternoon. A break was coming after the next speaker, and I wanted to be ready […]

On Stage with Donald Miller

And then Donald Miller said, "If you refuse to be a victim, and if you choose to let your pain be used to bring something new into the world, then God will take your story and put it in the face of the Enemy. And He will say, 'You did this to my girl.  Watch […]

Neither Pam Beasley nor Queen Latifah

I came to terms with the fact that I needed to hire an assistant. And that sentence still feels so strange in my head and at the tips of my fingers. An assistant? What kind of assistant? Are we talking Pam Beasley from The Office? Or more like Queen Latifah from Stranger Than Fiction? And […]
