Hearing God’s Voice

Hearing God’s Voice

This is my first Mark Batterson book, and I am so glad I picked it up. As a bestselling Christian author, I figured he would have something worthwhile to say on the topic of hearing from God, and my expectations were not disappointed. Ever since I was a new Christian I have been interested in […]

Book Review: Gospel Centered Mom

Book Review: Gospel Centered Mom

As a mom who wants to raise my two girls to be world-changers for Jesus, I find that my day to day reality doesn’t usually look the way I think it should. I am stretched thin and I find that these little girls are picking up some of my bad habits along with the good […]

Spending Time with God – Bookma...

Spending Time with God – Bookmark Tool

About ten years ago, during a time when I was desperately hungry to know God more, I came across an article that impacted my walk with God in a profound way. I had had people tell me before that it was important to spend time with God, and I had begun reading my bible regularly, […]

Those who “Habit” and Those Who Have Not (Done it Yet)

I recently watched a free online conference for moms with about 15- 20 different speakers, and I was surprised by how some of the same themes kept coming up from different presenters talking about totally different subjects. The idea that I have been chewing on for a week now pertains to habits. In seminars on […]

Easy Freezy Mac ‘n Cheesy

Easy Freezy Mac ‘n Cheesy

My toddler LOVES mac ‘n cheese (as do your kids, I am sure). We try to feed her healthy, unprocessed meals whenever possible, but packaged mac ‘n cheese was our most common exception. On those days when we’re in a hurry and I want to avoid a lunchtime standoff, I pull out something that is […]

Do it Afraid, with God

Do it Afraid, with God

Eleven weeks ago we joyfully welcomed our 2nd little world-changer and our lives haven’t been the same since. It has been an exciting and sweet time for us at home, full of new routines, sissie love, and  a few spit-ups. With this new, two-child season we’ve entered into, along with some changes to my husband’s […]

When Self-Sufficiency is Insufficient

When Self-Sufficiency is Insufficient

“It’s alright, I’ve got it.” Those are familiar words to my tongue. I’m the girl who, while her husband was working 12 hour shifts, decided to assemble 8 new dining chairs and a 10-person table at 31 weeks pregnant so it would be all set up for family to come over for an Easter meal. […]

Holidays, and Pleasing the One Who Wa...

Holidays, and Pleasing the One Who Wants Nothing More than Your Heart

The holidays are stressful for most of us. So many people visiting. So many gifts to wrap and give. So many treats to make. So many dishes to prepare. So many cards to write. So many things to be done, so little time to squeeze them in. Does this sound like your holiday season too? What […]

When there’s a Bump in the Plan

When there’s a Bump in the Plan

I had a home management routine that was working pretty well for me. I’d miss a day here and there but things never got really out of hand. That is, until I hit a little “bump” in the plan. Literally. Shortly after I made my last blog post in early September (sorry, I know it’s […]
