Anti-perfectionism

I used to strive for perfect (OK, I admit, I often still do…) When I took something on it was all or nothing. I have to say that that mindset has allowed me to achieve some pretty awesome things. It has also been the source of a great mess in many other areas. Here’s an example: When my son was born (in France) I got my hands on a book called...

What’s this all about, anyway?

Day five of the seven day blogging challenge asks me to share the reason for this blog, and a bit about what I’m hoping to achieve.

Baby Steps for the New Year

So, those of you who know me well, know that I’m one of those people who attacks life with a vengeance, makes huge changes, and then crashes and burns. I so love the idea of transformation, but the hard truth is, rapid transformation is God’s business.  Powering it myself is hard on me, and on those around me.  This year I knew I needed to find a new...
