Goals and Promises 

This is a challenging post for me to write-- in a  good way. It is the first time I can think of where I’m sharing my business goals publicly for all the world to see. It reminds me of that common dream of being on a stage and realizing you’re naked in front of the audience. Come on, I know you’ve had that dream too! Don’t even deny it.  

After looking back over 2017 and realizing how much I’d missed the mark on some of my goals, I decided 2018 has to be different. My life and family need these goals to…

My Word for 2018 

A couple of years ago, I started getting into the whole “set a word for the year” thing. I had read about other people describing their upcoming year in a word and I thought it sounded like something I should try.  

In 2017, I declared my word of the year to be “Harvest”. There were many things I was believing the Lord to bring to pass. In reflection, it did turn out to be a year of "harvest", although it was different from what I'd originally envisioned.

As I took some time to reflect on the past year…

A Not So Silent Night 

 

“Silent night, Holy night, 
All is calm, all is bright...” 

Wait a minute.   

Though I love this song and it happens to be one of my favorite Christmas carols, it totally does not describe my life right now.  Not since this precious girl came into the world... 

The Kings have officially gone from a family of 3 to a family of 4.  My sweet Cadence is a really good baby.  But, she’s still just that- a baby.  And babies are known for crying when they need something.  Fresh diaper, warm milk, or just a…

While Waiting 

I am three weeks from my due date at this point!  Ya’ll- 3 WEEKS!  Let’s just sit back and ponder the magnitude of that for a moment.  In three weeks or less, the Kings will go from being a family of 3 to a family of 4.  This slightly blows my mind. 

On the other hand, I’m not doing well with the waiting process.  Yesterday, I had a doctors appointment, and besides my blood pressure climbing, my body is not yet doing much to prepare for labor.  I really thought with my second child, it would be a quicker…

On the Eve of Irma 

It feels so strange to not be prepping my house and gathering supplies for the hurricane that is supposed to hit Florida in about 24 hours. 

You see, I'm sitting in my new house in KY where we moved about two months ago.  Meanwhile, my heart is with my friends and family getting ready to weather the storm.   

It wasn't even a year ago when we found out that Hurricane Matthew was headed our way.  Even though I'd lived in Florida for ten years at that point, it was the first hurricane I'd ever had to…

Two Years Ago 

I was scrolling social media this morning and this picture popped up as a time hop from two years ago:

Seeing this image brought back such good memories of what I was doing roughly two years ago: recording the vocals for my album, Make Something Happen.  2015 was such an exciting year because of that project.  I had dreamed of recording an original album for as long as I can remember, and God finally opened the doors for it to happen that year.  I ended up making 4 trips to Nashville that year alone just…

In the Middle 

What do you do when you're smack-dab in the middle of a frustrating situation that you have little to no control over? 

This is the question I've been asking myself for several weeks, pretty much ever since my family made the big decision of moving 800 miles out of our comfort zone. 

Disclaimer:  we had great reasons for moving.  Jamie and I both needed a fresh change, not to mention, I have a large network of family and lifelong friends here in KY.  Still, I hadn't realized how comfortable I had grown…

Missing My Voice 

"Make a joyful noise unto the Lord, all ye lands.  Serve the Lord with gladness: come before His Presence with singing." -Psalm 100:1-2 

Lately, I have really been missing my voice.  I don't mean that in some philosophical, hypothetical way.  I mean, that in the three weeks that I've lived in KY, I have not had my normal singing voice.  And I miss it. 

As soon as I arrived here, I started to feel sick.  I know many people experience allergies here in the Ohio Valley, but I think for me, the sickness…

Let God Build It 

"Unless the Lord builds the house, the builders labor in vain.  Unless the Lord watches over the city, the guards stand watch in vain." -Psalm 127:1

Lately, I've been getting into the whole Bible journaling trend that you've probably seen all over the Internet.  I had originally purchased a journaling Bible for the purpose of writing in it only, and then I started seeing other people's amazing artwork throughout their Bibles and decided I wanted to try it out.  My entries are nothing spectacular, but they…
