10 Things I HATED & LOVED About Selling Our Home

  • Building a Home Made for Hosting

We put our house on the market and expected it to sell immediately. Well, after 10 months of trial and error…. 10 months of wishing and hoping… 10 months of dead-end showings… we learned A LOT about the real estate market. I think we tried everything in the book when it came to tips and tricks. However, we did NOT try burrying a statue of Saint Joseph in our front yard. We were told many times that that would sell our house but we never did it. We thought it was hilarious though!! We ended up selling our house with Jenni & Co. and we were so impressed by their team!!

How One Conversation Changed My Life

  • United in Charleston 2016

Three years ago I was at a leader’s dinner during the United conference. Michael and I were at David Jay’s house in Santa Barbara when I got the text that read “You need to come back to the hotel ASAP!” This text was from a friend of mine who had been having some amazing conversations with some other friends about faith and Jesus and what our ultimate purpose is. She sent an urgent text message because our sweet friend had come to a place where she wanted Jesus to be a part of her life and she wanted me to be there. What happened that night literally changed the REST of life.

Oh The Lies We Believe

  • And How They're Hurting Us

Actually, he said a lot of things that really stuck with me but I can only remember a few of them because my habit when I am listening to a great speaker is to be ALL EARS and I never remember to take great notes. (I’m working on that) I may not remember everything he said but I do remember this… He said that EQ is more valuable and more vital to success than IQ.
