Over on my personal blog, I had written some things recently that may be helpful for some in ministry or helping professions, when looking at things like depression, anxiety, and burn-out, either in ourselves or our clients.

It has been far too long since I've been on here sharing my thoughts with this site, but I have been a bit busy out living life... I have gone from being the rare unicorn who had never been on a date to now being married. Being married less than a week, I won't claim … Continue reading Chronicles of Married Life – #1
So, in 4 days, I'm getting married. Anyone who has been following this blog may remember when I hadn't even been on a date. Now, 4 years later, I'm getting married.

So, I should have known that writing 31 days wouldn't work this year. Just with where I am in life and what's going on, it doesn't lend itself to that. So, I am going to add those posts to my "Adventures in Dating" page - which will now be "Dating & Relationships". And, why is … Continue reading I have an announcement!!
Recently, I wrote about how relationships reflect us. If we are paying attention to this reflection, we can learn some things about ourselves. Perhaps we learn how wonderful we are to others, even if we don't see it. Perhaps we see that maybe we have an area of weakness we need to work on.

Since I updated 2 months ago (2 months! Crazy), there have been even more changes going on in the life of this Tiny House, oily life living counselor.
