Hope Full Hearts

By Carrie / February 27, 2024 /

Hello friends – as I was shopping yesterday, I walked by some boxes of Valentine’s Day candy on a bottom shelf for a quick reduced sale. The heart-centered holiday where we make an effort to express love, affection and friendship seems to now be forgotten with the promise of a new one on the horizon.…

Strength In The Storm

By Carrie / January 25, 2024 /

At the beginning of January I decided to read through the entire Bible in a year. The plan I’m following goes in chronological order, and so we just finished up the book of Job. I was reminded why this is one of my favorite books in all of Scripture. Job is an example of how…

Ready To Climb?

By Carrie / December 27, 2023 /

Hello friends! As we reflect on this past year, we see changes happening all around. Change can be good or not so good for us, yet always represents the end to something. The unknown of what’s ahead can be like a huge mountain in front of us and may bring up emotions of uncertainty, anxiety and…

A Special Delivery

By Carrie / September 6, 2022 /

Hello friends! Towards the end of a morning meeting a few weeks ago, I suddenly heard the mail truck driving down the street. This caught my attention because our mailman always comes in the afternoon. Hearing the truck nearing my house, I wondered to myself why he was here so early. While I continued to think about…

It’s A New Day Dawning!

By Carrie / July 1, 2022 /

Hello friends!

I’ve recently rebranded my business, and have created a new website where I’m offering a…

Hello friends – the holidays are here, and I recognize how hard they can be on many of us who feel alone. With the pandemic restrictions, we may not be able to spend time with those we love. We are all keenly aware of what’s been lost, whether it’s a person, place or thing. Human…

Sifting Through Grief

By Carrie / August 31, 2020 /

Hey friends! A few weeks ago I was down at the lake, walking through the quiet park area that my now grown children once played in. The thought “an echo of what once was” went through my mind, followed by a sense of deep sadness rising up within. Grief decided to show up for an…

Sticky Note Labels

By Carrie / June 26, 2020 /

Hey friends! I have to admit, I’ve had a hard time getting started with this month’s post – there has been way too much clutter filling my mind. Although things in my outside world are pretty good at the moment (living with teens prevents me from saying that life is perfect!), what’s been going on…

Lessons Learned

By Carrie / May 21, 2020 /

Hi friends! Lately I’ve been asking this simple, yet heartfelt question to lots of people: “What has Covid19 been teaching you?” In other words, what are you learning about your life, how you’ve spent it so far, and how you want to continue to live? I’ve been meditating this myself, and jotting down a list…

Mark the Moment

By Carrie / April 25, 2020 /

Hello friends – I’d like to share a personal story this month and a helpful tool, which feels timely as we all face grief and loss due to this pandemic. Two years ago, on April 13th, I received a call that my brother Mark had died, by suicide. This traumatic loss was unbelievably painful, and…
