Small Seeds of Faith & April Goals

“Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin”. Zechariah 4:10 So much growth happens in the quiet, consistent, and unseen moments of our lives. Small seeds of obedience that when tended well grow into a flourishing life. This season I’m saying yes to walks around the blockwatching the…

Embracing the Transition

In March winter is holding back and spring is pulling forward. Something holds and something pulls inside of us too.Jean Hersey It’s the early days of Spring here in the Midwest, one day we are firing up the grills for a summer-like 60-degree day, and the next we are pulling out the shovels and snowblowers…

Highlights of 2021 + My Fave Reads

2021 was a year of growth, grit, God’s goodness, and heaps of grace. There were long & hard days, and weeks that flew by in a blink. There was a LOT of laughter and tears. And yet, I wouldn’t trade the lessons learned or memories made. It’s through the good, hard days that I’m constantly…

10 Years of Cultivating What Matters

It’s launch day for Cultivate What Matter’s Powersheets. And if you have been around here for any length of time, you know I’m a big fan of their intentional tool Powersheets. To celebrate the 10th Anniversary (and 9 years of me using Powersheets!) I took a quick look at the good I’ve grown since 2011,…

Grace Spaces & October Goals

September started off strong with sunshine, time in the garden, lots of puppy snuggles, and a trip to southern Wisconsin for a wedding. So many good memories that first week of September, and then I got sick… The rest of the month became a chance to receive grace, rest, and healing. Instead of celebrating the…

Do the Next Thing + September Goals

Savor Summer & August Goals

I’ve been pretty quiet around here. Part of it has been intentional, the other part just life. Summer is always a full season, but this year it’s seem more abundant than I could have ever imagined. There has been days full of challenges, countless growing opportunities, afternoons of delight and joy, and numerous opportunities to…

Flourishing Friday – Lilac Life

It’s the most magical time of year…lilac season! Last year my friend quipped “You don’t choose the lilac life, the lilac life chooses you!” and it’s made me chuckle and feel so seen at the same time. There is something magnificent and magical at being on the look out for lilacs all over. I notice…

What Needs Tending & May Goals

Last evening, I spent some extra time in my home gardens planning and dreaming. It was a welcome respite after a day of office work and catching up. In the early Spring, I typically spend so much time planting gardens at ZA that my home gets the leftovers. Last year I literally planted whatever seeds…

When You Need a Fresh Start (Live by your Values)

Faith. Purpose. Community. Margin. Beauty. The five words are the anchors of my days.  They help me remember what God has called me to in this season.  My days can look incredibly varied and different: somedays it might mean waking up early for a sunrise walk to get movement in before a full day of…
