Delighting in the Lord… on a Motorcycle

Psalm 37:4 "Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart." It's one of those Bible verses I've known since childhood. Such a beautiful, powerful promise from God.

Don’t Let Your Bucket List Keep You From Doing the Things You Love Over Again

Friends, I have a confession. I almost didn’t go skydiving a second time. Okay, that’s dramatic. But, I did put it off way, way, wayyyyyyy longer than I should have. And not because I was afraid. Or didn't have the money. Or because I had a mediocre experience the first time. I actually loved it …

Bungee Jumping in Switzerland: Taking A Literal Leap of Faith

There was a time in my life when I swore I’d never go bungee jumping. Never ever ever. I was open to skydiving, but falling head first, hooked to a cord, with the ground so close and no parachute? Noooo thanks. That was my solid stance on the matter until two years ago. Until I …

My Top Recommendations for Oahu: Food, Beaches, & Hikes

Before my O’ahu trip, lots of folks reached out with quite the variety of recommendations. Some recs I tried. Some I didn’t. But all were appreciated! They …
