We all have days when we feel like we’re just not enough.
You know… strong enough, smart enough, creative enough, motivated enough, or whatever your “enough” is!
Every woman has felt that way. And, when we do, we can start believing the lie that says how we feel is who we are.
Right? Surely, I am not the only one?!
Oh girl, I know I’m not the only one.
Oh girl, I need boundaries!
Just like a child is more secure when she has boundaries, I am learning that I am more free to be me when I have boundaries too.
As I’m learning how to identify with my identity and find myself in God’s view of me, I am learning that boundaries help me.
Boundaries help me stay close to God and my true identity.
So, Sunday night I decided to be spontaneous with my friend Angela and turn on Periscope while we made
No-Bake Energy Bites.
The result was laughter and lots of Periscopers joining us in my kitchen.
Lots of women asked for the recipe and I told them I would give it to them right here on my blog. So, here it is sisters!
It’s easy, fast and so, so good! And, if you aren’t on Periscope yet, join me on
Periscope to get in on the fun!
Oh, oh, oh have I got a treat for you?! Liz is in the house…or on the blog!
Liz Curtis Higgs is one of the funniest and wisest women I know and I am so happy to share her words with you today.
She gets us girls. She knows what it’s like to want to live well and wise and her insights have helped me do just that so I know she will help you too.
After you enjoy this blog, you’ll want to get even more Liz in her new book “! It’s Good to Be Queen: Becoming as Bold, Gracious, and Wise as the Queen of Sheba.” In fact, let me just give you one, okay? In the comments following the blog, tell me why you want to win the book and my peeps will randomly choose the book winner
The first words from a first born baby are just the best, aren’t they?
Our first child’s first word was… wait for it… wait for it… ball!
Yep, not original, but, girl, I wrote it down in the baby book, called my mom and was so excited I could have started a blog dedicated to his brilliance.
Then, he added words, but only a few. H e called my husband “Dadda” and he could also say “up” when he wanted out of his crib.
Did you know that even a blind woman can use Periscope?
What is Periscope?
It’s the easiest way to broadcast video — live, unedited video — from your phone.
It has all the potential for mistakes, regrets, and “oh my gosh, did I just say that!?” kind of snafus.
Do you live in the present truth of who you are?
Or, do you dwell on the past feelings of what you’ve done, what you regret, and who you’ve been?
Oh girl, God has given you a brand new day. It’s a day full of mercy and freedom just for you.
There’s something about routine that brings me comfort. I know what to expect and what each new day will bring.
But, there’s also something about routine – about the dailiness of life – that can make me feel stuck.
I start to feel trapped in my very own life.
Have you ever felt swallowed up in the dailiness of your life — doing the same old chores and tasks over and over and over again?
“Do you ever feel invisible because of your blindness?”
That was the question Doug asked me. I laughed and said, “It’s funny. I am the one who can’t see, but, often, it seems the other way around.”
I went on to explain what I meant…
Many of you have wondered what my new book,
Invisible: How You Feel is Not Who You Are, is about and why I wrote it.
So, I wanted to share with you a conversation I had recently with my daughter-in-law Caroline discussing this very thing.
