Longing for Home

Longing for Home

I have never been the kind of girl who thinks I will someday build my "forever home".  I don't know why, but even as a little girl, I didn't draw it or picture it.  I didn't have floor plans in my hope chest.  I don't have it all planned out on a Pinterest board. I honestly can't imagine ever saying a house is a forever home.   I've wondered about that.  I see so many people declare a house their forever home and they seem so happy and excited about it!  It is a dream they worked hard to create and...

Longing for Purpose

Longing for Purpose

I usually love the light bulb moment when some random pondering is suddenly illuminated with understanding.  Not so much this week.  This week, the clarity was painful to see at first.  I am on this new journey of becoming a more legit artist and writer.  I shared the fears and insecurities that have bubbled up in the blog post   https://artistictherapy.net/blogs/news/here-goes-nothing.  I dream of the things I share growing.  I love to picture it spreading, like a ripple effect.  Stones have always been a huge part of my life. The idea of my stone causing a ripple effect just makes...

With that, we decided to go explore this natural wonder in depth before heading back to Lusaka. We started with a hike to the top of the...

Experiencing Wonder....Part One

Experiencing Wonder....Part One

Today was supposed to be a magical day, exploring Victoria Falls, one of the seven natural wonders of the world.  We couldn’t wait to be amazed by God’s powerful creation.   When I told my mom I was going, she smiled sweetly and told me that my grandmother, MaCile had always dreamed of seeing Victoria Falls. I never knew that.  She and my Papa Phillips had always planned to take each of their grandchildren on a special trip, to imbed in us a love of travel. When he died unexpectedly at 55, that dream had to be tweaked. She took...

Making Magic {treehouse}

Making Magic {treehouse}

Dr. Yeiser was the highly recommended pediatrician when I was pregnant. I think I met her for the first time when she came into my hospital room to check baby Asher. It’s a blur of him crying. {Ok...maybe it was me...}.   I remember those first few visits when you felt like they would call DFACS if the baby cried too much, or if you didn’t put poop diapers in the right bags or something 😂. She listened. She confidently and patiently guided us through all the things that easily overwhelmed a new mother.   Asher was 18 months old...
