Monday School is Wally’s chance to share what he learned at church, and, prove that he went. This week’s discussion: Jesus called his disciples and they followed him immediately. What is our response when he calls us? … Continue reading

If Mother’s Day is Hard

Mother’s Day can be a surprisingly difficult holiday. While most of the world gushes about the day with flowers and cards, others are hiding the pain of infertility, mourning a loss, or wrestling through a strained relationship. For me, it’s a reminder that I’m not exactly where I’d like to be in life right now. While I was never in a rush to have kids, the plan was to start the conversation as we approached… … Continue reading

Jordan St. Cyr Helps Heal Wally’s Heart

This was my first time talking to Christian artist, Jordan St. Cyr.  It is probably not the sign of a healthy person to dump your Jr. High trauma on someone you just met, but Jordan seemed to have a kind heart.  My suspicion was proven true when he wrote a song to help me heal from a horrific Jr. High wedgie.

I’ve been struggling with this quite a bit for a while. The… … Continue reading

The Never-Ending Body Image Struggle

There are times in life where you realize that you’ve been a hypocrite. I’ve written blogs before about struggling with insecurities when it comes to my body.  I’ve published podcasts featuring experts that preach body positivity.  But still, I struggle. Recently, I had to face the always-daunting task of shopping for jeans. I knew I needed to go up a size and had finally come to terms with it when a saleswoman sent me into… … Continue reading
