Friendship and faith in adulthood

Friendship and faith in adulthood

WTF? (relax – it means “where’re the friends”!) I have always liked people.  I was friendly with everyone in elementary school and had one close/best friend.  It seemed so easy when we were young! In middle school my friendships changed, but I still had one close friend and a lot of other superficial friendships.  The middle school years were not completely smooth sailing for me and I made some bad choices.  Then I went from one long-term relationship to another one,…

Mindset matters!

Mindset matters!

You know sometimes when you go to church or you hear a particular message and you think ‘oh my gosh, they’re talking right to me?’ That’s what happened to me on Saturday.  I attended an all day training that was absolutely amazing. I took 68 pages of notes. Granted, my writing is kind of big and my notebook is about 5 x 8, but still that’s a lot of notes! I’m sharing this because I feel I that it applies to…

Nursing career part 1

Nursing career part 1

I’ve made some pretty big changes over the past couple of months, one of which was leaving my job of over eleven years. To go back to the beginning, when I was little I was sick and in the hospital quite a bit. Thankfully I don’t remember too much of that time, other than the thermometers that the nurses had.  For some reason I loved those thermometers and that is what made me want to be a nurse.  As I…

Gratitude (and books)

Gratitude (and books)

I started reading a book which is now on hold because I’m reading a couple of others.  This is something that I do frequently and always mean to stop doing but then don’t.  I love books.  I love to read.  And there are soooo many options out there that I have a hard time picking just one at a time.  So I often have 2-3 physical books that I’m reading in addition to an audiobook or two in progress. Back…

Beauty in imperfection

Beauty in imperfection

I just got back from a quick beach vacation that was filled with a lot of thinking and just being.  I went with my best friend and her son and my boys, and even though we were in the car together for a LONG TIME (we are not the quickest travelers) the boys spent a lot of time doing their own thing and we talked and listened to different personal development topics along the way.  Both of us are kind…

Praying vs. Worrying

Praying vs. Worrying

     I have always been rather impatient, although I do feel that I am improving in that area. I suppose it is only natural that my prayer life is no exception.  There are times when I feel like I have really been praying about something and I am trying to wait patiently for a response from God but it seems like nothing is coming through. When I stop and think, I often realize that I haven’t been praying at all.  I…

Hello!

Hello!

My name is Jenny Lytle. I am a wife, mom, daughter, sister, friend, nurse, network marketing professional, and child of God. A lot of people may feel that faith should come first, and honestly I am one of them. The reality is that I have struggled with my relationship with God for a long time.  I have come to the conclusion that I am not the only one that doesn’t have it all figured out. After much thought and prayer,…
