Settling.

Greener Pastures: (My post on Better Self-Worth& Esteem) ) #psalm 23) I’m learning to appreciate everything these days….. And I am blessed to be able to be living in a place where I’ve been for seven years. It’s been a journey of acceptance; yet also esteem. Approximately 13 or 14 years ago I was in…

“We Are All Like Trees.”

“We Are All Like Trees.” I’ll never forget how her face lit up when she said these words. I was in South Africa, Kuma, South Africa, in fact. I was teaching in a classroom of South African teenagers, and I was on cloud nine, (naw ….101..) Her words were so simple and freeing. Powerful, yet…

Identity in My Community.

Last night was amazing. I spent an hour and a half in community with folk in my church community. Some were members  of my church, and others were not. We all had three things in common: Purpose, Passion And Potential. Our desire is to reach for this, collectively. Some just wanted to be in a…

Acceptance & Receiving.

This very well may be first writing in 2018 on Receiving. I suppose if I set a goal, then by the end of this year, both you and me shall learn immensely about my one word. (So my first goal is to truly see where this precious word leads me!) I will say this, this…

Receiving. My Word for 2018.

Hey there, first week in January and I feeling like I’m on a roll, already! I’ve been doing a out of contemplating over the past two weeks an have found that being in the place of “Receiving “ has been very prosperous for me. Let me be completely  transparent about why this word is so…

Some of My Best Photos & Memories….

It’s so odd how… Some of my best pictures have permanent memories  and ‘records’ in my head… of me being taken out of my environment, into another realm of being and doing, transplanted to another part of the earth and helps me see a greater part and the ‘spiritual’  part  of who I am. I…

Give Me Grace: Saying Goodbye.

I’m just noticing how I feel about saying goodbye… Good relationships are sometimes good even before you really know they are. This week I had to end two relationships therapeutically with kids I see as a counselor.  I  had a special tug at my heart, with all three of them. It’s funny how  we bond….

I AM ENOUGH BECAUSE I AM AWARE.

I decided to write a new series. I was in a  Celebrate Recovery group and  talking about feeling “helpless”. It was a process for me to discuss in group, because as soon as I  spoke about why I tend to feel worried and  procrastinate on some things, I realized that  This vulnerable space I often…

Just Breathe.

by JennRene Sometimes in life we tend to get lost in the sauce.. we miss the whole point about why we were given “the breath of life” and why we have it, and how important it is to BREATHE…deeply. Prime example: Today, I went to a seminar today on bonding and attachment and found myself…
