Rescued Penguins For My Birthday

Rescued Penguins For My Birthday

I daydream about being a Disney princess…but it isn’t for the princes, the fancy castle, clothes, or even the books (I know *gasp*!) its because I secretly wish that I could whistle (ok, I can’t even whistle in the first place…) and animals would come walk over to me. Sure there are some animals that […]

Lived in a United America

Lived in a United America

This is third presidential election that I’ve been able to vote it, and it has taught me that I do not live in a united America at all. 2008- Due to conservative beliefs I began my voting career as an idealist Republican. I was sold the fear that Obama would ruin America and everything that […]

Ranted about the “Me Before You...

2016-06-01 19.12.04

Guys, why do we (especially the Christian conservatives) freak out about EVERY new book (but more so when its made into a movie) that comes out with an agenda that doesn’t quite match God’s standards? (Um, hello, there is one Bible, and its pretty clear that the world has different standards). This post is in […]

Made Peace With The Highs and Lows

2016-03-12 16.11.30

I’m still trooping through the year trying to figure out what PEACE is, what it looks life in my life, and how to let more of it in, and let the bad stuff out. Something I’ve come to recognize (okay, really, just be honest with myself) these past few months are my struggles with the […]

Practiced My Roar at The Lion King

Practiced My Roar at The Lion King

I have this friend of mine we’ve been lucky to stay friends since our college days…but even more specifically she’s my “musical friend” we go and see tons of shows together (the ones that my hubby would LOVE to skip). We are going to watch our Alma mater produce Beauty and the Beast this weekend, […]

Lost a Fight with a Poisonous Vine

Lost a Fight with a Poisonous Vine

I’ve been REALLY struggling with productivity lately…especially regarding house things. Then, the weather started to get better, AND I’m definitely a -need to be with my favorite person- person. SO, when he was out in the yard this past weekend I decided to take matters into my own hands and attempt to weed out the […]

Found a Snake In My Basement

IMG_6706

Well, we’ve lived in our new home about a week and a half at this point (I’ll do a separate post about buying the house as that was a pretty cool journey with God). Friends very graciously helped us move in the Saturday before last, when asked last minute. They were such amazing workers, moving […]

Welcomed Peace into My Life in 2016

Welcomed Peace into My Life in 2016

Its that time, the new year, and I gots goals. I gotta try at any rate :0). Combined, or as a way to focus my intentions I’ve chosen a word again: peace. I’m going to explore this word, let go of some anxieties, and rely on God. I’m sick of the meaning of my name […]

Froze For My Gun Rights at Lobby Day ...

2016-01-18-Lobby Day_70

¬†Every year we drive to Richmond to meet with our state representatives to discuss our opinions of the upcoming legislation for the session. All types of lobby groups are there, but VCDL tends to draw the largest crowd. We didn’t drive down early because of an upcoming house purchase and trying to save money. I’d […]

Seen the End of the Journey

Seen the End of the Journey

Once upon a time I began my counseling career after my internship. It was challenging phsyically, emotionally, in all the ways. I desperately wanted to reach these kids who were known to be some of the most aggressive and tough. I hurt because of their hurts, wondering how I could better help them. I cried […]

About Me

Hi! My name is Erin, and this is a place to "process out loud" in the words of my friends. You've probably noticed that the theme is kind of a wide theme, that is much like my life as I'm interested in MANY things: traveling, photography, jogging (its new!), being crafty, homesteading, firearms/self defense, and learning how to be a good wife. Through all of these things my goal is growing to know Christ more, and to make Him known. Each post shares a little about the promise that God has given me, that He'll finish what he began in me! (Phil 1:6) So thank you for joining me on this wonderful adventure.
