“I realized I’m not a lake, I’m a river.” I heard this on a podcast recently. I backed it up and replayed it. I was intrigued by this idea and have been thinking about it ever since. Each summer, my family travels to north Georgia to spend the week together in a house overlooking Lake… Continue reading You are a river
Happy birthday Grey and Harlow! We now have a 5-year-old and a 3-year-old in our house…not to mention a few too many new toys. We had the best time celebrating with friends and family from near and far this past weekend. Here at Salty but Sweet, we want to continue the celebration by launching the… Continue reading Surprise!
We just finished celebrating homecoming week! The ideas and traditions around homecoming have changed over the years and vary from place to place. For me, it invokes memories at my high school alma mater. As a cheerleader, I would spend weeks hand painting spirit signs to hang up at the football game and around our… Continue reading Mama said that it was okay
I’m in the book of Acts this week and whew! It’s a doozy. But it’s chock full of accounts that took place after Jesus rose from the dead and ascended into heaven, leaving the disciples and followers responsible for then spreading the good news. No pressure. In studying, I have been flipping back and forth… Continue reading Worship While You Wait
“Hit it, Harlow!” Every day, we pray together on our ride to school. We start out the same way, “Good morning, Jesus!” Depending on which kid is doing the praying that day, I facilitate the prayer or just listen as Grey or Harlow talk to Jesus. If you know Harlow, you know she’s a ham.… Continue reading Give Thanks
“And now you know…the rest of the story.” I remember listening to Paul Harvey on the radio. This is before XM radio or having access to unlimited music on your phones. I loved how he took a piece of information we as listeners had heard before and then gave us a behind the scenes look… Continue reading “And now you know…”
I was blown away by the hospitality shown to us at Andrew UMC this Sunday!

I’ve been thinking a lot about bitterness. I’ve been through seasons that left me bitter. I know you have, too. Sometimes, the season is fleeting. Other times, it becomes a fog that just won’t seem to lift even after the morning sun rises and dries up everything else. I spend most of my days talking… Continue reading Bitter.
I scrubbed at the sticky smudge on my screen, annoyed that gloop was gunking up my phone and occluding my gaze. I tried to tally how many popsicles Grey had consumed so far this summer – and how many drips had dropped on all of my things. He and I have been having weekly dates… Continue reading Halfway
