That Tricky Thing Called Contentment

That Tricky Thing Called Contentment

“Mom, I can’t wait until I am a grown up!  It takes forever being a kid!” my oldest declared from her booster seat as we drove down the road.  “Oh honey, don’t be in a hurry.  Your time as a child is actually going so quickly!” I replied. Instantly my mind did a replay of the nearly 8 years since she has been born.  Sometimes it seems like just yesterday and other times it feels like a lifetime ago since…

“Okay Lord, I’m Ready!”

“Okay Lord, I’m Ready!”

“Lord,” I prayed, “I’m ready!!  I’m ready for a relationship!”  I was a Senior in college and though I had had dates throughout my college years, I knew I had not yet met “the one”. A few years prior I decided to put aside all other books {college books not included 😉 }and in my spare time I would focus solely on reading books that would help teach me about being a Godly woman, wife, and mother.  I started with…

Checked off my reading list

Checked off my reading list

At the beginning of the year I purposed to read more books this year!  I don’t have a ton of time to sit and read, and for some reason when I do sit down to read it makes me reeeeeally sleepy!  However, I have learned that if I squeeze in some reading time after my Bible reading and prayer in the morning while the house is still quiet, it works great!  I thought I would share a few books with…

To Whom Much Is Given

To Whom Much Is Given

The headlines in America, and really the world, frighten me at times.  I used to be able to watch the news, Fox and Friends was one of my favorites, however, I can’t handle watching it anymore.  I get overwhelmed when I think about everything going on in the world. Just the other day my husband was telling me about the children that were being stolen away from their families by ISIS and were being sold as sex slaves.  Ripped my…

Grace In Motherhood

Grace In Motherhood

Have you ever forgotten about grace?  I have to be honest and say that I have. The area I most forget about it is in my own parenting. In the hustle and bustle of child rearing God knows I long to raise the children He has gifted my husband and I with, to love and serve Him as long as they live.  I can easily carry on with my day-to-day routine of parenting though as if it all depends upon…

Plumbers, Pedicures, and a Perfect Plan

Plumbers, Pedicures, and a Perfect Plan

“There is no panic in heaven.  God has no problems, only plans.” – Corrie ten Boom Whenever I am asked what my favorite quote is, that one by Corrie ten Boom is always the one I give.  It speaks deeply to me.  I mean, for a woman who endured such terrible, dire, and hopeless circumstances to be able to say that is amazing.  (Actually, she said tons of amazing things.  What a godly woman!) Anyhow, for that being my favorite…

Counting My Blessings Has Changed My Heart!

Counting My Blessings Has Changed My Heart!

I’ve been on this journey of purposeful thanksgiving for nearly 3 months now.  I have since finished up the book 1000 Gifts.  Wow.  Amazing. Have you ever stopped and just sought for blessings?  Have you ever asked God to peel the scales away from your eyes so that you could see Him at work? When I began my journey I was excited but I wondered if I could really keep it up.  Skeptical of me for sure, but I know…
