On the eve of my 39th birthday I’m already thinking about turning 40. What will I wish I would have done by then? How can I make sure the next year is pretty epic? Well I’ve taken a few personality tests over the past year and I usually come back with titles like “The Commander” […]

We are in the fourth month of adoption paperwork, trying very hard to get everything wrapped up. Since we have never done anything like this before it’s been one lesson after another. Most of it has gone smoothly but one of the most frustrating parts so far has been getting documents notarized and apostilled. You’ve […]

So she suggested I take the reins to earn some funds for our Burundi adoption! Here’s how it works: 1. Email me at alison@alisonstorm.com and […]

Sharathon day 2

HIS Radio’s annual Sharathon fundraiser is going on this week. It’s the time of year when we raise our operational budget. And since we’re asking people to support the ministry of HIS Radio I thought I would explain why I support HIS Radio. We always talk about how people turn on the radio and hear […]

His Morning Crew Graphic

A year ago today I showed up to the HIS Radio studio for my first day on the job! And my very first story was about how the Pumpkin Spice Latte was returning to Starbucks. I think I took that as a sign that I was right where I was supposed to be, even if […]

watermelon

Is there a food you don’t like? For my sister, it’s fish. For my mom, mushrooms are on the naughty list. And my husband has it out for cherries. For me, it was watermelon. Well, really any melon for that matter. It was the reason I always felt scammed by fruit salad, which turns out […]

His-Radio-Google-PLUS (2)

Ever day at HIS Radio we pray for people who have submitted requests at HISRadio.com or called our prayer line. A couple of weeks ago I selected the prayer for our 6:30am prayer time and we prayed for the woman. Later that day I got an email from her saying that she heard us praying […]

Iraq Baby

In the last decade, Iraqis have experienced ten times more heart defects at birth compared to world averages. But Iraq’s once great medical infrastructure can’t serve these children, due to decades of war and internal battles. This has left an entire generation of children who desperately need surgery waiting for care. That’s where the Preemptive […]

Feb 11 Krochet Kids

I’m really excited about this Operation Good Tee. On the surface, Krochet Kids Intl. simply looks like a really cool clothing and accessory company. Every item they make is hand-signed by the person who made it. You can then visit KrochetKids.org and learn more about the artistan whose hands touched your shirt or stocking cap. […]

Monster Truck

I’m not going to lie. Watching monster trucks crush cars and pop wheelies is not my idea of a thrilling Friday night. But I have a two year old who is extremely passionate about all things cars. And watching him get excited about things and experience life for the first time is thrilling for me. […]

Jan 21 Lemonade

T-shirts rock. Especially when they promote a really cool organization like Lemonade International. In an effort to shine the light on some incredible organizations and businesses that are changing the world I recently launched Operation Good Tee. Every other Wednesday during the HIS Radio morning show I’ll wear a special t-shirt from a really cool […]

3 lifesavers

Last week we kicked off a two-week no-spend challenge in my house. It’s a pretty simple concept. For two weeks you don’t spend any money. Instead you get creative with recipes using what’s been sitting in your pantry for a while. You seek out free entertainment. And you cross the stuff off your to-do list […]

happy new year

Happy New Year Friends! Have you ever picked a word to serve as your focus for an entire year? My friend Brittney pointed me to myoneword.org. A North Carolina pastor encourages people to choose one word to focus on, rather than a list of resolutions. I’ve been thinking about this and I’ve decided my word […]

Do you make resolutions or goals at the beginning of every new year? I do. But 2014 proved that God’s plans are way bigger than my own. I was busy thinking about how much more water I was going to drink and all the money I was going to save, but God was working on […]

Allume quote 1

I do not like being busy. Don’t get me wrong, I’m thankful for my jobs (all three of them) and the fullness of life. But I think there is a real threat of letting busyness take us away from community, relationships and serving others. This has been a recurring theme over the past month through […]

Two awesome reasons to celebrate today: 1. The Pumpkin Spice Latte is back, earlier than ever! This is fall in a cup and even though it’s supposed to get back up into the 90s here in Greenville, the return of the PSL makes me want to wear sweaters and boots. 2. I started a new […]

I’m bombarded daily with messages and demands that push me to reach more people, get more likes, increase my followers. And to be honest it can be exhausting. Because there is always someone who makes it look easier, has more influence, does it better. This video reminded me that the masses don’t always matter most […]

Happy 30th

Something even cooler than Apple arrived into the world in 1984. That happens to be the same year my husband was born. We’re spending the weekend in Atlanta attending the wedding of a dear friend and spending time with other close friends. When I turned 30 I jammed out to this Tim McGraw song a […]
