enabling email

okay, so obviously it's fun to get comments on your blog posts... but even more fun than that is being able to reply directly back to the person who left the comment [remember when i had the "commentLuv" system, where i could reply right back to you?] anyway, with blogger, you can enable your email address on your profile so that when you comment on someone's blog, they can actually email you back a direct reply! if you don't know how to enable your email, i'll show you how:


first log in to blogger.com. 
you'll see your "dashboard" 
click on "edit profile"
click on "show my email address" [pictured above]
that enables your email on comments so that the blog owner can reply to you :)
it also puts this link on your profile [pictured below]
it doesn't really "show" your actual email address anywhere, except in the notification email that the blog owner receives, like any other email you'd send to someone would show your email address.


that's it! it's really easy, but it will make bloggers everywhere so happy when they can reply to you. i think most people will tell you that's the best part of blogging, actually interacting and developing relationships with readers. anyway, take it or leave it, [but i hope you take it]!

  2. I like forming the relationships on here, but have gotten a few nasty, negative comments. I keep my comments moderated and just don't feel quite comfortable putting my email out there. Glad it works for you though!

  3. Ania, that's such a bummer! i can never understand why people send negative comments (let alone downright nasty!?). i always figure if i don't agree with someone, i won't comment and i'll just stop reading if they post things i don't agree with. it's your blog, after all, you know what i mean? you can technically write about whatever you want, in your own space, right? i hate that there isn't more compassion and understanding, but i guess that's human nature...

    anyway, i totally get where you're coming from, and there's a good reason you don't want to activate your email. i just figured if people didn't know about it and would want to know how to activate it, this would be a good little tutorial :)

on embracing disappointment

sometimes it's the hardest thing we'll ever do to pause our ever-moving-forward agendas long enough to see another person. to have compassion and grace and understanding for them, especially when it interferes with our desires, when it means laying down our own needs in order to meet theirs.

our own motives and our own agendas can feel so important and forefront, so that moment of yielding to someone else can feel almost impossible. like a death of sorts.

because you know what? it hurts to die to self. it just does, no matter how insignificant it may seem to an onlooker.

but i'm learning to embrace all of the emotions that come with disappointments like this, not to ignore them or feel shame for experiencing them (probably the hardest part for me). to feel them, acknowledge them, let them sit there while i figure out the next right thing.

it's hard work to live in the tension of wanting to be healthy and magical and able to live above the waves - while still being very…

hope spoken 2014 | a little recap

well. it feels weird to be back here in this space. i haven't regularly blogged for over a year. i'm feeling like it's time for a redesign but that's beside the point. i'm really here to tell you about Hope Spoken conference that i attended in dallas 2 weekends ago. everyone has been saying how they need time to process everything. i'm no exception. what i'm about to share is really an email i wrote to casey and danielle a few days after i got home, but i've edited and expanded a little. there is still so much more in my heart and mind that's not quite ready to come out:

i'm finally sitting down to pour out my heart after such an amazing weekend. the first thing that's hitting me is these three girls went with a dream and a mission and a calling from Jesus, and were brave to walk through the door and keep going, as danielle describes it. i'm sure they imagined how beautiful it would be but i don't think they could have imagined just …

on fear and anxiety and unbelief

i've been struggling lately. i know. what a great way to start out my first blog post of like this entire past year. but really, does anyone even read here anymore? it's been awhile...

if you follow me on instagram, i've alluded to my struggle with fear and anxiety in small bits. but last week opened the floodgates when i shared a photo of that day's "Jesus Calling" entry which read:

Anxiety is a result of envisioning the future without me. So the best defense against worry is staying in communication with Me. When you turn your thoughts toward Me, you can think much more positively. Remember to listen, as well as to speak, making your thoughts a dialogue with Me.

If you must consider upcoming events, follow these rules: 1) Do not linger in the future, because anxieties sprout up like mushrooms when you wander there. 2) Remember the promise of My continual Presence; include Me in any imagery that comes to mind. This mental discipline does not come easily, beca…
