The Intention Project

Hello party people! I’ve missed y’all! It’s been a season and I’m super grateful to be back. For the longest while,  I’ve been sitting on “What’s going to be the BEST post to jump back into it?” I was driving myself crazy with my feeble attempts at putting myself back out there with something mind blowing for all of you lovely folks. Nothing was good enough. Or creative enough. Or exciting- why weren’t my ideas exciting?! Then, while I was entertaining these ridiculous thoughts, I looked up and realized I had neglected us for four more months than I intended! Yikes! And big cyber hugs for that. Well, God is good and he sent me a friend, who I hadn’t seen in about that much time, to nudge me along. She welcomed me to join her Intention Project. A post-a-day of your daily intention. This is very much a practice in imperfectionism and vulnerability. Guess what? I’m on Day 2 and it’s incredible – I had to share this with y’all!     My youngest son …

A Minute with God

Have you ever tried to spend one still minute with God? Not praying or talking but simply silent and still with Him. I tried this morning. Alone in my hotel room, it should have been easy. But it wasn’t. It was unsettlingly hard. All of the thoughts I wanted to share with Him. I was that kid. The one on pins and needles, ready to explode three seconds into 1-2-3 Quiet & Still. I’m pretty sure I didn’t last much longer than that before attempting to start over again in my stillness with God. And again. But that’s the amazing thing about God. His Grace starts over again and again. And again. Over the last few weeks, I feel like God has gently been nudging me to “Rest.” I’m not sure why there is so much guilt associated with resting. Embarassingly, I’ve been one to judge and envy stay-at-home mama friends or someday parent friends who take these things called “siestas” or “naps” while their toddlers slumber or just because they’re tired. Wth?? And it makes …

Strength

Well, it’s been awhile since my yoga mat and I have had a date. Like, maybe, creeping on 3 months awhile. I think we had a 30 minute power lunch next to my bed one day in December. But it was a long December, a blur to be honest, and that could very well be a false statement. I looked at my schedule for this week and decided Hump Day would be my January 1st. Twenty seven days late really isn’t so bad if you’re a Kerby…or a Ferguson…or most anyone related to me. I felt like we were on a first date. I was a little shy and feeling a bit self conscious to say the least. I decided at the last minute, since I was being so awkward with myself and my mat, that I would push the awkwardness a bit farther and try a new studio. Just jump ship. Have you ever done that? Yep, me either. I walked into the trendy yoga studio with EDM blaring in the back ground thinking, “Oh boy. This is …
