Living With Intention

Making Margin For What Matters

 I am glad you're here...

When I was 15 years old, I stumbled upon a book that would forever change my life.  After reading through the pages, I knew that I wanted to make my life count.  I wanted to be purposeful about my words, my relationships, my actions.  And so, throughout my life, I have tried to do just that.  To live my life thinking about my message.  My everyday message that I was giving those around me.  Today, I desire to give love, an encouraging word, a patient demeanor, an uplifting glance.  But I have learned in order to be the person I want to be, I must have margin in my life.  I must be able to have a space that is left open for the things that matter.  So, my hope is that I can offer a glimpse into my life and write about the things that I have learned. Things like how to keep open spaces in my heart and soul, in my home and with my children, in my schedule and with my work.  I hope to touch upon subjects that are important to me and perhaps important to you as well.  Throughout these pages, I write about our home and personal spaces, our health, our margin in life, our finances, our giving, our relationships and really about who we want to be.  I invite you to take this journey with me and dig deeper into how to live our lives on purpose, with intention and ultimately making a difference--while it matters.
