Meet Meg!

Sunny&80 started with occasional nap-time posts to remember the funny things my little kids said and did, and along the way re-ignited my passion to write. In this space I share the dearest and most tender places of my heart, so that we can journey together as a supportive community through motherhood, marriage, life, friendship, ministry, love, and the pursuit of something bigger than this world: Jesus.

The short and skinny about me …The people that know me the best call me “Megs.” I’m a #2 on the Enneagram and a Highly Sensitive Extrovert. I grew up in a suburb of Cleveland, OH …go BBHHS Bees! A miler and cross country runner, I officially surrendered my life to Jesus Christ freshman year during a collegiate xc practice at Ashland University. I graduated with a Bachelors Degree in Business Administration with a Major in Marketing and Minor in Public Relations.

Jim and I were married in 2007. We live in a small lake town in Northern Ohio with our two daughters, Brianne and Lauren (Lo Lo), and our crazy golden-doodle, Cherry. An author and freelance writer alongside full-time motherhood and volunteer ministry keep me blessedly busy with a life bigger than I asked for …could have imagined …and can sometimes handle! LOL

Thank you for becoming a part of my village. Write me anytime at sunnyandeighty@gmail.com !

Happy Reading and Glory Up.

Megs

    Hi, Megs! It’s nice to run across a fellow believer and mom who is also aware of her Enneagram number! I’m a 1w2wing. I can’t wait to get to know you better in the coming years!

    I’m so glad I found you. Gods watching out for us 😉
    I was looking up a prayer for our vestry at church. I’m hosting a dinner at our next meeting. I did a search for a prayer for parents with children who are addicted. My precious son is 30 and it took me so long to understand what was happening. Then in Alanon I read a mother’s prayer which basically said “Do you think you love your son more than God”. I’d pray on my knees begging for him to take me and give my son sobriety. Few years later my son now is seven months sober. 😉

    Back to finding you ;). I started reading all of your article titles and I can use all of them. Thank you for sharing with everyone else in this world. Peace ☮️

    Hi Meg. I loved your devotion. It is an eye opener, which teaches us that the word of Gid is alive and we can apply it to our lives everyday, we can use it for the pulling down of stronghold. And the word of God is a light to us in this dark world, the word of God is a weapon, unlike any other weapon, it is not carnal it is nit of this world. I pray that i will get to meet you some day. I live in Ohio. May God bless and keep you and your family. May you grow in the Lord from glory to glory.

    Dear Meg,

    I just discovered your very good article on where our strength comes from.
    Your definition of strength from the Hebrew is excellent because refuge, protection, safety source is EXTERNAL, not INTERNAL, that outside source is none other than the Lord Himself. And it requires a person, not technique or methods. That does not mean we don’t obtain inner strength as the Lord does this as an end product.

    As you may know there are a host of personality assessments that emphasize finding your strength, such as DISC. I wrote a documentary on DISC, MBTI, and SHAPE. I would love to send it to you, but would just need your email so I can attache the PDF file.

    Thank you!
    Kindest regards in Christ,

    James Sundquist

    Hi Meg. A short note to let you know there’s a typo/error in your devotional today. Jesus said “I am the way, the truth,,,” is from John 14:6, not John 11:6 Thanks for your writings, Don
