Happy Weekend!  Today I'm in Austin, Texas for the ReWrite conference!  I wish I could say I have seen more of what I've heard is a really cool city, but the truth is that I've been stuck in a hotel for two days and probably won't have time to go anywhere before leaving again tomorrow. Sigh. Maybe [...]

Happy Weekend!  After a week in the Dominican Republic with Compassion International, today I am headed home.  I can't wait to see my girls and my husband, but I will definitely be leaving a piece of my heart behind, and honestly?  I can't wait to come back.  Will you join me in sponsoring a child this week? Of [...]

Happy Thursday!  This week I am in the Dominican Republic with Compassion International.  It has been a pretty intense week so far, and I'm not going to lie--I've cried.  A lot.  And I'm not normally a crier.  But these kids have my heart and they are not letting go. Our goal is not only to raise [...]

Happy Weekend! This afternoon I am heading to Atlanta to meet up with my fellow Compassion Bloggers before we fly to the Dominican Republic tomorrow.  Our goal is not only to raise awareness about some of the incredible work Compassion is doing in that country, but to help 300 kids find sponsors this week!  I would love to [...]

Happy Thursday!  I hope you are all having a fabulous week & staying healthy during this crazy cold & flu season!  My girls have been fighting off the sniffles this week but seem to be winning the battle.  After being sick almost constantly for the past two winters, we started using essential oils last fall and [...]

Happy Weekend! It is Saturday morning and I am still debating whether I would like to try to be productive this weekend and tackle a few organizing/decluttering projects I've been wanting to get to, or whether I should just take it easy and curl up with a good book.  What about you--do you plan to be productive, [...]

Happy Thursday! I hope you are all having a fabulous first week of February! For the most part it has been a pretty low-key week around here, but today we are enjoying the company of my adorable friend Renee Swope and her sweet family.  I love it when my online friends become real-life friends! In other [...]

Happy Weekend! Am I the only one that is completely PUMPED for the Superbowl this weekend?  I can't wait to cheer on my hometown team as they put those dirty cheaters in their place play their hearts out!  Tonight Bob Lotich (of ChristianPF.com) & his sweet wife Linda coming for dinner while they are in town visiting family.  It [...]

Happy Thursday!  I hope you are all having a FANTASTIC week!  I've been busy trying to get into a new routine as I begin working on my next book (due out Spring of 2016).  My best writing time is early in the morning, which means getting up at 4am every day.  I know eventually it [...]

Happy Weekend!  I'm not quite sure what I am going to do with myself this weekend, what with my garden all taken care of again and no football to watch! (Did anyone else almost have a heart attack watching that Seahawks-Packers game?  Oh. My. Gosh!)  But I'm sure I'll think of something....this might just be a [...]

Happy Thursday! I hope you are all having a great week and staying warm and healthy in what can be an icky time of year!  After I was sick almost constantly last year, this year I have been a little fanatical about taking care of myself.  I have been a lot more careful about getting [...]

Happy Saturday!  Bring ON the weekend!  My plans for the next couple of days include tending to my somewhat neglected little garden (you can follow our progress, or lack thereof, on Instagram using hashtag #SoukupGarden), doing a few deep cleaning/decluttering projects, and cheering on my hometown football team in the NFC Championship tomorrow! (Go Hawks!)  What have [...]

Happy Thursday! I hope you are all having a fabulous week!  The month of January can definitely be a cold and dreary time, but I have also found that it is a great time to get re-focused and re-inspired!  I'm super excited about this free mini course happening right now, called 4 Steps to Rediscover Your Inner [...]
