boldness and carts

Do you ever struggle with boldness?

I do. Maybe it’s because I’m an introvert. Maybe it’s because I have an overactive imagination and I can see all the ways being bold can go terribly, terribly wrong. In any case, I had a boldness-possible situation today.

Confronted with an ever-growing list of needed Target item, I decided if I didn’t go today, the list would just keep growing until it took me five trips to carry everything up from my parking spot.

That thought (and some coffee, of course) gave me the motivation I needed – I threw on my purple chucks, grabbed my lime green purse, and caught a lift down from Homer. Ten minutes later, I was wandering into Target. (more…)


I think this would probably be a good time to introduce myself.

Hey, I’m Halee (yep, that’s me over on the side). If we’re going to be friends, there are a few things you should probably know about me…

1. I love coffee. A lot. It greatly enhances the quality of my life. Plus, it makes me smile and do a little happy dance (which looks suspiciously like the Charlie Brown dance).

2. I truly care about people. I absolutely love giving advice to teens who email us at Real Teen Faith. I consider it an honor and a privilege to be a part of someone’s life, if only for a moment.

3. I have opinions. Like, dark chocolate is way better than milk chocolate. White walls are a tragedy. And Jimmy Stewart was the best actor of all time.

4. I name inanimate objects. My Nissan Versa is named Luna, my keyboard is Selah, and my DSLR camera is Orli. The elevators at the end of my hall are Elmer and Homer. I guess I figure if I name things, they’re more likely to be nice to me, or maybe it’s just my way of showing appreciation. Who knows? If nothing else, it makes me smile.

Those are just some tidbits about me and my quirky, compassionate, and creative self. Now that you know a little about me, I’d love to hear about you!
