Remember how I announced a few weeks ago that we’d be starting a new feature in our FMF posts called FMF Introductions? So far, I got to interview Asheritah Ciuciu from, and then Asheritah interviewed Kaitlyn Bouchillon, founder of #fmfpartysnailmail.

This week, Asheritah persuaded me to do a video interview with her. She swayed me with: “In all sisterly love, just get over your hatred of videos.” 🙂

So here I am humbling myself and sharing this latest video with you, of Asheritah with yours truly:



So, there you have it. Set your timers because this week’s Five Minute Friday prompt is:


FMF - Keep.2



The air is bitter cold but sun sparkles on snow that fell silently in the night, and the concrete is covered in layers of sheer ice. It reminds me just how fleeting this world really is. This world and all that we hold so dear. It could all melt away tomorrow, or maybe it will crack and shatter. It’s slippery, this life. One misstep and we’re on our backs, flat and throbbing. No matter how good the tread on our boots, the ice wins and we fall. Hard.


Jude 1.24


It’s amazing how we can ease into a course of normalcy, of smooth sailing, confident that our vessel is indestructible, then suddenly crash! an iceberg, and the unsinkable lies at the bottom of the sea and we tread water, breathless.

One company merger and our job no longer exists; one strange symptom and we’re lying in an MRI machine, wondering how much time is left; one wrong electrical spark and our house is in ashes; one clump of attack cells and we’re shopping for wigs, the chemotherapy having stripped us of our hair.

It doesn’t take much to lose it all.

No matter how hard we try, we can’t keep this place. This stuff. This life.


Isaiah 26.3


[Tweet “But in Him, we are held secure. His foundation is firm. It never slips, never melts.”]

In Him, we are kept.



[Tweet “What comes to mind when you think of the word KEEP? Tell us in five minutes or less ..”]
