Tonight my blog post is simple – it’s to encourage those who feel weary, possibly confused and in need of a friend. As I was reminded by my loving mother on the phone tonight, the best way to find peace and understanding is in the promises of God’s word. So this is what I want to share with you – hoping it resonates with even one, as it resonated with me tonight.
So my friend, these are promises written and inspired by God for you and me. Believe them – because they are real and were given to you. Jesus loves you so so much. I’m praying that the strength of these words help us to live out the truths that He promised to us long ago and that still hold true today and will into eternity.

Hands down, signing up for the Nashville half was one of the best things I have ever done. Because I have never been a long distance runner, I knew I was going to be challenged physically and mentally while training, but I had no idea of the other things I would gain along the way. But in the end, I did register by convincing myself that “this would totally make me feel like a Nashville resident” and “the race is going to be a breezeeeee!” The real clincher for the deal was that I didn’t want to feel like a complete loser standing on the sidelines while watching two of my best friends actually run the race. Here we have it, FOMO wins again!
This time I’m glad it did. Here’s why. Continue reading “St. Jude’s Rock N Roll Half Marathon”
