Why Don’t You Know Jon Acuff?


I’m changing a few things up around here. This whole new brave vibe going on in my life has me venturing out to do new and bold things. Lately, I’m resonating with the opening of Star Trek: The Next Generation where Captain JeanLuc Picard states in his regal voice. Space, the final frontier. These are the voyages of the Starship Enterprise.…

Re-discovering my life through recovery


Hi everyone. My name is Marni, and I’m a grateful believer in Jesus who struggles with codependency, dependency and anxiety. These are the very words I speak every Friday night when I go to my Celebrate Recovery meetings. Why am I in this Christ-centered 12-step recovery program? Because, just like my salvation, I realized I couldn’t do this life on…

Who’s My Target


In just a couple of short months, I will be hallmarking something I never thought I would say… …that I’ve been publicly writing for 4 years. 4 years! Golly, where has the time gone…and why have I floundered the last year with my writing? It’s frustrating, because deep down…I know this is what I am supposed to be doing. Alas,…

I Must Write Words


This shouldn’t be that hard. I know how to write…but it’s not knowing how to write that’s the issue. It’s why I’m writing that needs to be answered. Why am I writing? Why do I love words so much? The other day, I watched Grace Unplugged – twice. Back to back. Something about this movie stirred me up in a big…

When To Share Words


I had full intention of drafting posts tonight…haha…oh, how silly of me. Me, draft posts? Oh mercy, you mean I’m not a “professional” blogger? Let me just put things in perspective here…for me to draft posts, is like me writing a book. It’s a bit methodical and a tad sterile when I have to edit something a million times until I know…

Beginning Somewhere


Who knew…a writer would be at a loss for words. haha Sounds almost impossible, particularly from writers who are introverted. The reality is, I’m never truly at a loss for words…but I come to points where the words are too numerous to draw into one coherent idea. At the moment, I literally have about 50 topics in my head all…

Good Enough is Good


Comparison. When I say this word…I honestly shudder inside. Within the scope of science, it is a very useful word; but within the scope of human relationships, it’s toxic. I’m healing from allowing this word to poison my mind. It’s a seductive poison that sneaks in undetected, as it disguises itself as “research” – especially with the personality types that…
