Whatever You Do

Welcome to Day 23 of 31 Ways to Embrace Lopsided Living! On Sundays we are meditating on a verse that encourages us in our Lopsided Living pursuit.  Today's verse is one I am leaning into a lot lately. Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men. Colossians 3:23 WHATEVER YOU DO ... You should probably know this about me: I'm a perfectionist and a people-pleaser. I also have a low threshold for managing stress and dealing with change. Basically, I like to make a ... [Read More]

Try Something New

Welcome to Day 22 of 31 Ways to Embrace Lopsided Living! It's Saturday and we've covered a lot of ground this week. Let's recap ... Busy isn't always bad. This one is so important, y'all. There is room in, even in our busiest seasons and days, for us to be focused on Kingdom business. Lopsided Living When You're Busy. In this post, we looked at 3 reasons we get busy and 3 ways to respond. When we understand why we are busy, it's easier for us to manage it. Take Care of Yourself. Less ... [Read More]

Small Changes Count

Welcome to Day 21 of 31 Ways to Embrace Lopsided Living! Well, it's Friday. Y'all, I'm tired. For real. I could give you all the reasons but I don't think they are much different from yours. So, I'll spare you the details and let's just both agree some weeks are just long and tiring, deal? I've received so many emails from women who are reading this series. Here are two I received this week: "Your words help me to stop and think and appreciate all that God has done for me." "Thanks ... [Read More]

It’s Okay to Do Something instead of Everything

Welcome to Day 20 of 31 Ways to Embrace Lopsided Living! I need to make a confession. I didn't use my Jawbone yesterday. Why? Because it's been so long since I have worn it I couldn't even find the charger until this morning. It's all charged up and I'll be monitoring my steps today! Just wanted to be honest with you about how my life really looks. As we are getting into the final days of this series, I want to share something I think we far too often forget.  It has to do with several ... [Read More]

Take Care of Yourself

Welcome to Day 19 of 31 Ways to Embrace Lopsided Living! This is the post where I tell you to do what I say, not what I do. Because, honestly, I am awful at this. Especially right now when I'm frantically working to finish my manuscript. I told a friend last night, "I'm basically running on coffee and chocolate." The worst part is, this was in a conversation we were having about going to the gym. So, yeah, seriously, I'm not here to judge or lecture. But I can't really write about living ... [Read More]

Lopsided Living When You’re Busy

Welcome to Day 18 of 31 Ways to Embrace Lopsided Living! Yesterday I shared what was, for me at least, a piece of ground-breaking news — busy isn't always bad. I'm one of those people others may describe as "over-achiever" or "high energy." It's not uncommon for people to say, "I don't know how you do all you do." I don't necessarily think I am any of those things {well, except high energy, I really can be that} but others perceive me that way. And, I'd guess at least a few of you who are ... [Read More]
