Leading At Vacation Bible School

Kids of similar age in a big room all look the same. How on earth am I going to be able to tell which ones are mine? And isn’t it all pretty much babysitting other peoples’ kids for a week? Those were my initial thoughts before I decided to take the plunge and volunteer for Vacation Bible School at … Read more

The World Needs Your Hustle

I want you to meet my friend Kevin. He and I are friends because we both have dreams, and we are taking the necessary baby steps to achieve them. Kevin gets up every day at 5am and leads the charge for other dreamers to get up and hustle on their dreams. 5am is early. But … Read more

Living Out My Journey-By Rediscovering Myself

“Anytime I start to feel the mommy guilt that comes with taking time for myself I think: Would I rather have my kids see me feeling like I’m stuck at home and feeling bad about myself and grouchy… or would I rather have them see me having fun and enjoying my own life, as I … Read more

It’s Not A DeLorean. But It Takes Me Back In Time.

I didn’t grow up on a farm but I still consider myself to be a farm kid. Crazy and free, once upon a time. Entertainment in a small Kansas farm town can be hard to come by. I was so lucky to have go-carts and 4-wheelers at my disposal, and a large field next to my house to run … Read more

Touring the Schakolad Chocolate Factory

A girls night out at a chocolate factory? Talk about a no-brainer. Yes please! I was thrilled to see an online deal to do this, and I rounded up a small group of ladies. Schakolad, located in Franklin, TN is more a chocolate shop than a factory, but we were not disappointed. The tour started off with a … Read more

Taking A Ballroom Dancing Class

My husband probably thinks I’m crazy. On our last date night, we shot M-16’s and ate Krispy Kreme’s. And for this one, I had him get his dancin’ shoes on. I really wanted to try a beginner’s Ballroom Dancing Class. I was so happy to find a class at our local rec center for a mere … Read more

Tactical Training Date Night

My husband Danny is perfectly happy with the standard dinner/movie combo when it comes to date night, but I’m always on the hunt to try something different. We heard from “a guy that knows a guy-that knows a guy-that told another guy” about this place where you could go and shoot real guns in various simulated high … Read more

Getting A Haircut

This qualifies as an adventure? Why yes, yes it does. I don’t even remember the last time I went to a salon to get a haircut. I don’t even remember where I went when I did. I’ve been trimming it up at home for so long I just kind of forgot salons existed. It has … Read more

Sightseeing Right Where You Are

Checking out local historic sites might sound boring to you, but I stumbled upon a few real finds that were worth my time. There are a few that I drive by almost every day on my usual rounds, but have never stopped to look at them. I had a little bit of free time one afternoon … Read more

Taking A Painting Class

As part of my campaign to get out of the house and live a little, I decided to take a painting class. I used to love art in high school and I was good at it, but that was more than 20 years ago. I thought I would try to revisit an old passion and … Read more
