Welcome friend! Grab a cup of coffee or sweet tea or even a green smoothie if that's your thing and let's get acquainted. I'm Teri Lynne — wife to Scott, mom to Casiday, and manager of Buddy the Basset. {Check out my Instagram feed to keep up with the crazy dog antics.}

Kick off your shoes and let's chat about faith, family, and figuring out how to live well in this chaotic 21st century. And if we can't solve any of the world's problems, at least we can listen and encourage one another. In the words of that old 80s song, "That's what friends are for ... "

Yesterday was a very emotional day for some people we dearly love. They are in the middle of a difficult and draining situation. It’s hard knowing they are hurting and feeling helpless to do anything. Last week, as we talked with them about what comes next, I was reminded how powerful hope is. I’ve leaned […]

Jesus Has Overcome!

I’ve started and stopped this post several times. What words could I ever string together to explain what the last year has been like. One year ago today I got up like every other Sunday morning and headed to worship with my church family. But by the end of the day I was in the […]

Heart Sisters by Natalie Snapp {Book Review}

Yesterday my friend Alycia and I talked for about an hour. She’s starting a new therapy practice and needed some counsel about her website. I gave her some information and ideas … but most of our conversation was about life. Alycia and I have been friends for over 30 years. We met in eighth grade when my […]

The Fringe Hours {book review}

I mentioned a few weeks ago how much I love my journaling Bible. I really do. I’m not particularly artistic but I am enjoying learning to do hand lettering and to use Scripture to form my own brand of art. It’s becoming one of those releases for me … a time when I am both […]
