Five Ways to Get Your Joy Back

My word for the month: OVERWHELMED. I have been so overwhelmed with all the things that I need to do: between Christmas shopping and Christmas gatherings, weddings and training sessions, I am just about ready to fall apart. Plus I need to start preparing for a big move in January. Whew! I’ve been so overwhelmed to the point of feeling paralyzed and downright unhappy, so I had to make some changes this week to get the feeling of joy back....

God-encounters and the other things I loved about my Singapore trip

You can’t possibly...

My 2009 :)

Where do I begin??? There’s so much to say about this Christmas season and this year as a whole–it’s hard to put into words! So in the meantime (once again), I’m going to have to leave you with photos. Lots of them! Hover over the photos for the captions....
