There's Always Another Way - kaitlynhiltz.com

Being a copywriter has taught me that there’s always another way to say or write something. It’s helped prevent writer’s block, it’s helped me curb the feeling of comparison, and it’s prevented self-doubt. It’s allowed me to see words as limitless —I simply have to figure out the puzzle. And the more I practice it, […]

It’s funny how crafty and cunning the enemy can be, and as the days go by, despite knowing this fact, we often forget. I’m sharing this because I know how many of us – as daughters, as mothers, as wives, as friends, and simply as WOMEN tend to carry so much more on our shoulders than […]

This is a slightly different post topic for me, but I felt inspired and compelled to do so, thanks to the talented Rachel Giesel. It’s a semi-awkward, slightly-humorous, almost unwritten requirement that every ‘writer’ at some point publish their, “Why I Write” essay. Just ask George Orwell. Or Stephen King. Or Ernest Hemingway. Or any English […]

Trading Incessant Doing for Restful Being I recently encountered my first full-on wall of writer’s block in a long, long time. It’s not so much that the words weren’t there but more so that my belief in their weight started to escape me. I started viewing them as something that had to teach, prove, strive, and do. I […]

How to Fall More in Love With...Reading My Bible? - kaitlynhiltz.com

Yes. You can, and I believe you will.  I am not a pastor, preacher, or small group leader. I didn’t go to divinity school, bible college, or discipleship training. Arguably, I am vastly unqualified to write this post. I write this post with the sheer qualification of having been on the other side of not being in love with […]

This past week, in a fit of technological frustration, I looked out the window to see there wasn’t a cloud in the sky and to be reminded of the well over 70°  forecast. All morning my computer had been coming at me with “Start-up disk full” notifications, 2 unread mailboxes, incoming texts, papers to be written, […]

Global athletic retailer, lululemon athletica, has a position in its corporate offices known as the “Director of Possibility” filled by a woman named Susanne Conrad. (I’ll let you relish in that amazing job title for a second.) Susanne is also the founder of igolu  (pronounced I-Goal-You)–“a body of innovative communication, vision, goal-setting, and leadership training […]

The other day I went straight to the beach in what you could call nothing short of a desperate attempt to face plant into the sand with a view of the ocean. Well, I guess I can’t really see much of the ocean if my face is in the sand, but you get what I’m […]

This past week, while working out, I had a breakthrough about listening to my body and more importantly, finding my “ticking point”. Here’s how it went down: On Friday I went for a run. It was warm, it was early evening, I was in the zone and it felt great. I cruised out 6miles, no complaints. […]
