The Downside of Bold | It is Well

The Downside of Bold Here’s a confession. Bold dreams, goals and prayers lead to frustration, fear and disappointment. I’ve found myself asking God, I thought this dream was from you. Where are you? What seemed so clear a few days, weeks, months ago feels hazy and blurred now. This isn’t what I thought it would […]

You can speak peace in your life

Peace! Be still!

I’ve got you, babe… 2009 was not a good year for me. My business was failing – I lost $100,000 in one week. Kia’s business was faltering – a luxury services don’t sell in a down economy. Relationships were stressed – financial problems don’t make for warm fuzzies. Everything was falling apart. Have one of these years? In […]

In case you were under a rock, Bowie (also known as Ziggy Stardust), the equally eclectic and eccentric rock and roll star passed away after a battle with cancer.

Miracle! Years ago, my daughters miraculously survived a massive car wreck. While their babysitter was driving home on a local highway, something fell off the back of the truck in front of her. She couldn’t avoid it, and she hit this metal object at over 65 mph. The results weren’t pretty. The SUV they were traveling in was crushed, flipping multiple […]

The butterfly and the struggle.

The butterfly We all struggle…even butterflies. Stop me if you’ve heard this one before. A little boy brought home a caterpillar he finds while playing outside. Fascinated, he asked to keep it. He and his mother placed it in a jar with sticks and grass.  The little boy constantly watched the caterpillar eat and move. […]

The Bondurant's have a new dog - Charlie Louise

Sending to Sent: Have you landed?

What have we done? Kia and I took a big step. We did something we’ve been putting off for years. We moved forward on something people have called us crazy for. We took a leap. Late nights. Early mornings. Crying. Feeding. Walking. Little sleep. No, it’s not a baby…we got a puppy. Labor Day Monday […]
