My Fearless community adds value to my life. On our Team call, I recommended the Morning Pages to a Team member, because I used to do them and saw value in them. Then I asked myself, “Why did you stop writing them Barb?” My Fearless Team member ran with the idea, and has 3 weeks… Continue reading The Scattered Words
I woke up at 5:00 am. The house is really dark that time of morning. I reached over to turn on the lamp beside my bed and with one click the room was illumined. Glancing at the floor to my surprise there is a puppo curled up sound asleep. The click of the switch caused… Continue reading Life is Good
I’ve been thinking about this, and had a vision I’d like to share. It took some thought and planning ahead, but it’s well worth every effort. The first thing I saw to do was to scrub the beach rug clean. It’s odd, but in January hundreds of birds fly overhead all day long dropping red… Continue reading A Beautiful Morning

Last year I had a side goal of emptying my draft folder. I got it down to two drafts, but just couldn’t bring myself to publish them. The timing felt off, and now I’ve begun to add to the draft folder again. I can have a goal, but it’s important to be in God’s timing… Continue reading A Better Listener
I woke up at 4am, and couldn’t decide whether or not to go back to sleep. It’s amazing how many tiny choices we make in a day, with each one altering the next. I began thinking of my French Press and how I haven’t used it very much. It was one of those things Barb… Continue reading The First Step
In this guest post written by Collette, she shares how life is not made in big moments, or bold pronouncements, but in the small, daily moments.
When I first started this Blog, I wanted to write like Melody Beattie. I’ve read her books more than once and she brings me peace. It was more than her words, maybe it was her vibe while writing, like she was filled with peace and laying it on the page to be shared. It took… Continue reading Filled with peace
