Because I Knew You – Guest Post by Jesse James Freeman

I'm pleased to introduce you today to Jesse James. Jesse and I met on Twitter through our mutual publisher, Booktrope, and I believe the first conversation we launched into was about the TV show LOST (you can imagine how crazy conversations like that quickly become), and then later I recall him admitting, also over Twitter he needed Karo syrup to make more fake blood.  Needless to…

I Swear I Didn’t Pack That

The following is a real-life account of a girl who almost got in major trouble with SeaTac airport security. I'm what most people would call a "good girl."  I like pleasing people and maintaining order.  But, below the surface of me, lies my fear of doing something wrong. I wasn't afraid when I sent my carry-on backpack through the airport X-ray.  That's because I didn't know the…

SheKnows Date Night Article & My New Columnist Status!

Some of you have heard the news that I just had my first pro-level article published through SheKnows Magazine.

Then they invited me to write for them on a monthly basis! *excited squeal* See my first SheKnows article here.  The Importance of Date Night for…

Life Teammates

Every time I stay in my house for a long time in isolation and start gobbling huge quantities of chocolate to deal with my stir-craziness, I'm reminded that the hermit lifestyle was not designed to be a life-long gig. The human condition comes with a hardwired need of others.  I need companionship, affection, feedback, encouragement, teamwork, as well as.... I discovered, based on an assessment, that I…

Because I Knew You – Guest Post by David Slater

You are in for a treat.  This post is penned by my friend David, who I met through a swing dance club at the University of Washington.  I watched him learn to dance and get really awesome at it.  Since then, David and I have taken The Artist's Way course together and from the deeper friendship that formed, chatted lengthily on life, faith, creativity, love, and dreams. …

Personality Tests and Self-Regulation

I love personality tests: Answering a string of questions about myself and getting results that tell me something (usually positive) about who I am at my core has always felt affirming. I’m an ESFJ on the Myers-Briggs, a dIsC on the DISC Assessment, an Aphrodite/Hera on the Goddess Within test, and so on…You might gather I really like these tests. Whether you enjoy personality tests, or just consider…

My Life in Red

I considered titling this post CONFESSIONS OF AN ADRENALINE JUNKIE.  You'll see why. I never considered myself an addictive personality, especially not when it came to my productivity and social life, but that was just ignorance blindsiding me.  It was very sneaky about it. Some of you read my fog and purpose post two weeks ago about a depression that was troubling me enough to post as documentation…

Because I Knew You – Guest Post by Michelle Blair Fuller

A savvy traveler, dreamer, and delightful writer, I'm thrilled to introduce you to my good friend, Michelle Fuller!  Michelle and I crossed paths at the University of Washington while the two of us were swing dancing through undergrad.  I remember one fateful night in which we sang, full-throttle, Part of Your World from Disney's The Little Mermaid, and after that, our friendship was forever set in stone. …

Because I Knew You – Guest Post by Marni Mann

It is my great pleasure to introduce you to Marni Mann, a talented writer with a fun streak that I love.  Marni and I met via Twitter, and we both had our first novels published through Booktrope Editions within the last six months, which makes us sisters in the publishing family. Marni inspires me with her spunk, her compassion, and her kindness.  In this post she courageously explores…

Fog and Purpose

This post may strike you as rather philosophical, but there are seasons of our lives--and minds--when nothing else fits the bill. You hate it when the status quo is simply to pretend like everything is always fine and dandy, right?  And you equally hate it when people you know launch themselves from crisis to crisis as if they truly inhabit an endless chain of traumatic evens and…
