  • PENNY PEOPLE

    Friends are like pennies from heaven. This phrase tugged at my heart a few days ago after doing a Winnefred Austin tote bag photoshoot. I brought along 3 dear friends for modeling and photographing. Even though none of them had met before, we were a bunch of giggling little girls by the time the photos were finished. 

  • MORNING GLORY 05

    Good morning, it’s God’s morning! I’ve been out of town for a tour de Tennessee the past few days, so it’s good to be home and take a deep breath. ...
  • MORNING GLORY 04

    Good morning, friends – Or should I say afternoon…ha! It’s one of those days when there are NOT enough hours in the morning. But I’m glad you are here all the same! I came across these verses yesterday. It never ceases to amaze me how God’s Word speaks life into our every day – exactly when we need it. These words from Philippians brought so much encouragement to me, and I wanted to pass them along to you.
  • TO SCHOOL

    August breathes in lazy sweet summer days and breathes out new pencils and paper and books. All the glorious school supplies sum up the dreams of my elementary school days when August rolled around. But if we’re being real here – stocking up on school supplies was my favorite back-to-school ritual all the way through senior year of college.

  • MORNING GLORY 03

    Good Morning Glory! Happy Wednesday. This morning I want to share these verses from Mark 4. The subtitle in my Bible calls the passage, “Jesus Calms the Storm.” 35 As evening came, Jesus said to his disciples, “Let’s cross to the other side of the lake.” 36 So they took Jesus in the boat and started out, leaving the crowds behind (although other boats followed). 37 But soon a fierce storm came up. High waves were breaking into the boat, and it began to fill with water. 

  • MORNING GLORY 02

    Good Morning Glory! The past few weeks I have been thinking a lot about kindness. I recently started teaching kids Sunday School at my church. The lesson I just taught was about King David’s kindness to Jonathan and his son, Mephilboseth. (Try pronouncing Mephilboseth to a bunch of 1st and 2nd graders…ha). The Bible story came from 2 Samuel 9.

  • MORNING GLORY 01

    I have always been an early morning gal – I love mornings & the new possibility each day brings. My day starts with scripture & coffee, & this morning I thought to myself…what if I could share that time with a friend like you, too? So here’s my first Morning Glory: a few verses, some words, & a prayer from times passed to remind us that God is the same through every generation. Every morning we can rise & shine & give God the glory because He makes us new each day.

  • ALL THINGS BRIGHT & BEAUTIFUL

    I write today with piles of markers, pencils, papers, and notebooks with left-handed scribbled words piled high on my desk. I’m neck deep in product development these days. To an outsider, my studio desk looks nothing short of an Alabama tornado or a Gulf hurricane – – but this is what I bring to the table today. So whatever you are bringing to the table, let it be there. I’m a full believer that God works in processes (and messy tables too!)
  • TO ALYS

    I made a new friend named Alys during my week at the beach. She’s all kinds of classy with a side of sandy toes and iced coffee. I couldn’t help but want to fit in and be just like her. Perhaps you’ve met her too?
