Hey Sole Sister,

It is good and right to feel happy. Yep, I said it. Happiness is a tricky thing, though, because it is unlikely that for your entire life, at every moment, you will feel happy. But, what that doesn’t mean is that it’s wrong to feel happy, or desire to feel happy again if you’re at a place where you’re not feeling happy.

Things I’ve been guilty of...

Hi there, beauty babes! I’m sorry it’s been a little while since we’ve talked.

Here’s what I’ve been processing lately:

The question of my soul is, can you be sensitive and gritty? You know me and how much I love options, “boths,” and “ands.” So I’ve decided that, yes, we can be both.

I recently was in conversation with a student of mine who is an up and coming at...

Hi beauties! I am so excited (and a teensy bit nervous) to share what is on my heart today. My words are meant to love you, challenge you, and speak life and truth over you regardless of the shiny situation (or lack thereof) on your left ring finger. I hope all relationship statuses take a moment to read and digest. I am going to write first to single women. An...

Hey Sole Sister,

When was the last time you had to have a permission slip signed? Elementary school, your middle school church retreat? Yeah, me too.

One of my favorite authors of all time, Brené Brown describes her concept of “permission slips” in her newest book "Braving the Wilderness: The Quest for True Belonging and the Courage to Stand Alone” and it is givi...

hey sole sister,

"AND"

This 3-letter conjunction makes me feel free and secure. This word has allowed me the freedom to feel and experience one, two, even seven or one hundred things at one time and listen to my compass a little closer. This pattern of thinking that includes more “ands” and less “buts” is changing me. It is changing my relationships. And it is ch...

Jesus never promised us an easy journey, but he did promise never to leave us or forsake us. I’ve been mulling over this concept for months now. In times where I’ve felt sad and uncertain, I lean on this eternal truth that Jesus was forsaken on our behalf, which means we cannot be put on the chopping block. It’s not like we are standing facing two team captains...

hey sole sister,

I’ve been processing a lot lately. I’m a woman so… obviously. I feel something bubbling up inside me and I want to share it with you. Each year, on my birthday, I pick a new word. I started when I was 25 and was facing graduation from graduate school, the associated unemployment that comes with carrying two degrees (anyone else been there? Just...

hey sole sister,

My heart has something for you today and I hope that it resonates with you. I think from the time we were little, there’s something ingrained in us about permanence. We’re taught from a young age about not putting our hands near the stove and if we touch a hot burner, we will get burned. These are necessary warnings, cautions, protections put in...

hey sole sister,

How’s your heart? Have you taken any time to sit with your experiences lately? Process them? Feel them? Investigate what they mean?

Let’s talk about balance…. That age-old term that everyone wants so desperately, and few are willing to put in the hard work for. And I mean h.a.r.d. w.o.r.k. That sneaky little word that shames every mother into thi...

hey, sole sister:

I’ve been thinking a lot about you lately. Are you doing well? Are you fed? Spiritually, emotionally, physically? Here’s what I feel God is teaching me about time with him.

It’s not productive.

Now before you go off on me on all the things that get “produced” through time in the Word, prayer time, quiet time, devo time (whatever it’s called these...
