Weekend Round Up

Weekend Round Up

I'm from Texas and I think the term "round up" originally had to do with cowboys and cattle but I like to use it when I've got a whole herd of exciting things to share at once–like today!


I'm writing today at Held, a new ministry for women struggling with infertility. I've been on that journey for seven years. It's not what I would have chosen but it's turned into a journey I wouldn't trade. Here's an excerpt from my post

I've come to believe all women are mothers because we all bring life to the world. Most often through the birth of physical children from our bodies.

But in other ways too…when we write, cook, plant, make beauty where there was none, speak an encouraging word, say a prayer, take a hand and form hope out of thin air, resurrect a marriage, save a life from poverty, bring forth light and truth and goodness in ways women are uniquely created to do.

We are mothers in more ways than one…."

You can read the rest here. If you are someone you love is struggling with infertility, Held will be an encouragement!


Most of you know how much I love being part of the community of (in)courage–a place online that's a bit like God's beach house. I'm in love with this video and just couldn't wait to share it with you!

And finally, I've got a couple of giveaway winners to announce. It's so much fun sharing things I love with you!
