On Fridays around these parts we stop, drop, and write.

We write bold and beautiful and free. Unscripted and unedited. We just write without worrying if it’s just right or not.

Won’t you join us?

    1. Write for 5 minutes flat – no editing, no over thinking, no backtracking.
    2. Link back here and invite others to join in.
    3. Most importantly: leave a comment for the person who linked up before you – encouraging them in their writing!

OK, are you ready? Give me your best five minutes on:



I write in this space because I have words that have weasled themselves into my head and demand their way out onto a page. I write in this space because there are things I wish someone had said to me, that I offer now to you. I write in this space because somewhere, someone needs to stop telling moms everything they should do, everything they need, everything they could do different and just tell them who they are is pretty awesome.

I write in this space because it’s the next best thing to coming over for tea. And chocolate.

I write in this space because I love how you’re learning the same things I’m learning. And how some days we’re not learning, we’re just aching from all the things we’ve seemed to mess up or miss or mistake.

I write in this space because sometimes our stories are the best translation of the Bible we’ve got to offer someone else.

Our real stories, our regular, ordinary, every day hurts and bumps, bruises and victories, hopes, demands and quiet, desperate dreams.

I write in this space because it’s become the most wonderful life preserver. For me. And some days maybe for you too.

I write in this space so I can say, “Catch!”
