You’ve Got This! {a prayer for the embracers of Lopsided Living}

Welcome to Day 31 of 31 Ways to Embrace Lopsided Living! Well, my friends, we made it to the end. Can I tell you I really wasn't sure this would happen? Not because of you, of course. But because somehow my silly little self thought I could write a 31-day series about one of the topics I care most deeply about AND finish the manuscript for my first book at the same time. But guess what?? We did it! And I mean WE because every email you sent me this month, every comment you left, every kind ... [Read More]

Remember Your Why

Welcome to Day 30 of 31 Ways to Embrace Lopsided Living! On Sundays we consider a verse and how God's Word is a faithful guide for us as we pursue Lopsided Living.

James 4:8 Remember your why!   Lopsided living isn't about getting more done or having it all together or impressing anyone else. The purposeful pursuit of ... [Read More]

Welcome to Day 28 of 31 Ways to Embrace Lopsided Living! I've learned a lot since I first started practicing this idea of Lopsided Living almost ten years ago. And one thing I know for certain — I often experience times of great success in living life this way and there have been seasons when I have known nothing but epic failure. Why am I telling you this? I mean, you're reading because you want to know this is doable and you can actually have the abundant life God offers every day, right? ... [Read More]

Enlist Help

Welcome to Day 27 of 31 Ways to Embrace Lopsided Living! I love talking about community and how we need each other. This week we've been covering some important truths: People are always our priority. We need to be encouragers (and it doesn't have to be hard). Building community and enjoying our relationships with others is valuable. Today, though, we move into some tough territory. We've covered it briefly before ... but I gave you options and so you may well have chosen something ... [Read More]

Enjoy Community

Welcome to Day 26 of 31 Ways to Embrace Lopsided Living! Only five posts left in this series after today. I am praying you have been encouraged, inspired, challenged, and equipped by all the ground we've covered. I know it's been a lot. Don't forget every post is indexed and you can always come back and read them again. So, yesterday we talked about how important it is for us to encourage others. Did you do it? How did it impact you? Funny, isn't it, how when we set out to bless someone else ... [Read More]
