Perpective

When you are oriented, standing further away from a large object, like say, a mountain or the moon, it seems small. As you move toward the object it “grows” bigger and bigger. But in actuality the object never changed. Just your perspective changed. During our family devotion time the other night, my 9 year old […]

Be Still and Hold

  There are times God puts us in a mandatory “time out” for a bit. It was a normal Saturday with tasks laid out before us. The day before I had picked up a load of mulch to finish the Ninja Course play area to make the it safer in the event of a fall…  like a fall would ever […]

Did I Really Just Run Every Day for a Year?

Did I really just run every day for a year?  When I attended my first Momentum Run class, I would have easily – hands down – been elected “LEAST likely to complete a run challenge.” I whined about everything from strength training to breathing, and I especially whined at the mere thought of getting up […]

Thank you! It is kind of long […]

We are so proud of the finishers of the #30for30challenge (16 total). Each overcame various obstacles and common excuses and completed the daily challenge one day at a time for 30 days.

Not the running type, but always a runner

I am not the running type. I was never a college or high school athlete. I never even played a sport in elementary school. Well, I played softball a couple of years, AND I cheered…before cheerleading was considered a sport. In high school we did some pretty cool stunts, but if you ask my sister…still […]
