    How To Spend Quiet Time With God…when it feels like He is silent

    This is one of the most common questions I get asked. How do you spend quiet time with God? Like…HOW? Sometimes people ask this from the perspective of truly wondering how to do it when they feel restless or can’t seem to to schedule it in or shut their minds off. For those people, my advice is this: schedule in even 10 minutes to read a devotional, a Proverbs a day, a Psalms a day, some worship music, SOMETHING. And then keep it up for 90 days in a row. It’s truly that simple. Just. Follow. Through. But that’s not what I want to talk about today… Today I want…

    4 SOP’s Every Business Needs

    The year was 2011. I found myself working part-time for a multi-millionaire as a virtual assistant and I was stoked. It was during this experience that I learned the term SOP. Now, I’ve got to admit something to you – I’m not always the first one to get these acronyms for business terms. In fact, a former boss once referred to me as her MVP and I had absolutely no clue what that meant! (It means “Most Valuable Player” for my fellow acronym & sports illiterate friends.) Anyway, I share this nugget of information with you because it’s quite possible you’ve been scratching your head and wondering to yourself, “what…

    3 Tips to Overcome the Fear of Public Speaking

    Confession: I never took speech class in high school and I HATED the thought of having to speak in public. Period. I’m the girl that was comfortable singing in front of thousands of people, but the thought of giving a speech in front of ten people gave me so much anxiety that I wanted to cry. My words would get jumbled, I would sweat like a pig, and I was scared to death. I know I’m not the only one who has had this fear because public speaking is ranked as the number one fear most people have! So, my friend, if you can relate to this fear at all,…

    How To Organize A Week’s Worth Of Outfits

    My very first grown up job was working full time at The Limited (back when it was an actual store you could walk into – oh those were the days). This is where I learned the art of how to organize outfits. You guys it was no joke. This was serious, hardcore sales training where you had to know the fit, the feature, the function, and the fashion behind each new item that was on the top item list! (We practically got graded on our presentations during staff trainings.) Not gonna lie though, I secretly loved it! Putting together outfits is actually quite fun. Not too long ago I read…

    How Often Should You Change Your Running Shoes?

    It was a beautiful fall day when I stood with my fellow runners from track team on the sidelines of the track, listening to our Coach. In a stern yet upbeat tone she asked us, “how often should you change your running shoes?” We all stood silently for a moment and then I yelled out, “every 300-500 miles!” I knew the answer because she had told it to me a few weeks earlier during one of my training sessions with her. However, it wasn’t the first time I had heard this. Back in 2015, for a very brief moment in time, I worked as a Sales Associate at one of…
