Beauty & Blessings: This Week in Wonder & Awe(some)

Who’s ready for Beauty & Blessings this week? So much good stuff if I do say so myself:).

Can you believe that it’s February 20th and this second month of 2016 is almost over? As you ponder that for a moment, I hope this week’s treasures help inspire your heart, stir your soul, and give you a moment to breathe, smile, and as my Uncle Roland always said, “Be.”

Wishing you and yours an extraordinary weekend ahead.





p.s. for those of you in the GTA, I will be teaching a FREE Life Class today (Saturday February 20th, 11am-12noon). If you’re in the area, I’d love to see you!

Aaron and Zac-two 20 year-olds who proved that “impossible” is just possible waiting to happen. Watch the impossible become possible…it’s AMAZING.



For many, the word BIBLE=snooze alert. It certainly was for me up until a couple of years ago. And then my intrigue was kicked up a couple of notches thanks to Ann Voskamp who lead me to learn about these storytellers. Insightful. Inspiring. So, so powerful. Watch one. I dare you. (Note: you may find yourself watching more than one. Don’t say I didn’t warn you:)).



Nick saw a need when he was in need. He had a dream and his classmates and teacher made it happen… #lilypadsoflove

CNN asked people to leave a voicemail and share their love stories. This is what happened…

Daniel Norris is my FAVOURITE baseball player but my fascination and admiration for him has less to do with how many strikes he throws and more for who he is and his incredible story. His journey is one full of highs and lows and through it all, a man who reminds us of the things that connect us, the things that matter.

This song has been on repeat…

"One Thing"-Hillsong Music

“One Thing”

I tasted the world seen more than enough
It’s promises fleeting
Of water and wine I emptied the cup
And found myself wantingBut there is a well that never runs dry
The water of life the blood of the vineCause all I know is
Everything I have means nothing
Jesus if You’re not my one thing
Everything I need right now
All I need is You right nowJust one thing I ask and this I will seek
If only to know You
To be where You are and go where You lead
My God I will followThe things of this world I’ve counted as loss
I lay it all down to take up this crossCause all I know is
Everything I have means nothing
Jesus if You’re not my one thing
Everything I need right nowCause all I want is
Everything You are and nothing
Jesus if You’re not my one thing
Everything to me right nowAnd I’ll sing
Whoa whoa
I want nothing but to know You
And to be with You my GodAnd I’ll sing
Whoa whoa
And with everything within me
I will worship You my God
