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]

Busy Isn’t Always Bad

Welcome to Day 17 of 31 Ways to Embrace Lopsided Living! The posts for today and tomorrow are where I am right now. But they are also where so many women I know are as well.  It's called: BUSY. I recently said you to a friend I feel like I live at the intersection of Hectic Road and Frantic Avenue. Maybe you do too? Just over a year ago, I wrote a post titled Busy Women Welcome Here. Why? Because it seems like, especially in Christian circles, there are a whole lot of blog posts and books ... [Read More]

Living Sacrifices

Welcome to Day 16 of 31 Ways to Embrace Living Lopsided! On Sundays we are taking time to meditate on a specific verse or passage and understand how it helps us live abundantly and with intention. Today's verse is one of my favorites:  I appeal to you therefore, brothers, by the mercies of God, to present your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and acceptable to God, which is your spiritual worship. Romans 12:1 Lopsided Living Reminds Us We Are Called to Be Living Sacrifices That ... [Read More]

Be Inspired!

Welcome to Day 15 of 31 Ways to Embrace Lopsided Living! Sometimes, we get so busy doing all the stuff we need to do to make it through the day, we neglect about our soul needs. The past few weeks we've been running at a frantic pace here in the Underwood house and, the truth is, it isn't really going to slow down until after the holiday season ends. So what can we do to give ourselves those soul breaks we need? Lopsided Living invites us to be inspired! Being inspired looks different for ... [Read More]

Choose Best Over Good

Welcome to Day 13 of 31 Ways to Embrace Lopsided Living! Well, hello! Guess what?? Sometimes when you're writing a blog series you are passionate about and finishing a book manuscript you are also passionate about and you live with people who have lives they are passionate about ... sometimes things get a little bit chaotic. And sometimes in the chaos, a blog post doesn't get written when you planned and instead you oversleep and are frantically writing it two hour after it's normally ... [Read More]
