Surrender Project: Two Years

Two year anniversary of My Surrender Project. Where am I now? What have I learned along the way? What’s next?

Mirrors and Reflections

Mirrors seem to reflect different body images based on time of day, recent choices, lighting, or even mindset. Life seems to reflect differently as well, based on choices, time of day, priorities and mindset. I’m learning that we must be more intentional with protecting our mind and spirit.


Seeking stillness, adventure and God’s guidance as we surrender on another road trip. A man, his dog with God- can’t ask for much more than that.
