Trusting the process

  Recently I decided I’m retiring from professionally singing and acting because it has become increasingly clear that that chapter is over (at least for now). The last straw was actually pretty hilarious: my friend Amy sent me an email about a casting notice for an Asian actor, 20-40, for a paid role in an upcoming production. This […]

Keeping the Main Thing

Imagine you’re a three-year-old girl and your dad tells you your favorite bedtime story every night, Cinderella – the Disney version. (Have you read the actual Brothers Grimm version?! It’s good in it’s own way but contains a few very graphic differences!

It’s ok if it makes you uncomfortable because I agree – it’s awkward. I don’t know anyone who would outrightly tell someone who is considering giving up, “Sure, that sounds like a great […]

Enough for God

As free-spirited as I am, I do find a healthy amount of routine and ritual refreshing now that I know I’m not bound to them. I have grown to love Lent and cherish the moments of stillness, reflection, confession, and preparation over the Church’s biggest holiday… Easter! When I was younger I didn’t have much choice over whether or not I […]
