Evil May Seem to Abound, but Christ Has Ultimately Won!

Evil May Seem to Abound, but Christ Has Ultimately Won!

We live in a world currently, where a lot of bad seems to be going on. You don’t even have to turn on the tv to hear about it.  Social media is exploding with it, the radio broadcasts news excerpts of it, magazine racks at the store show pictures of it, yes, evil seems to be all around. At times the questions, “Am I the only one who cares about God anymore?  Where are the godly people?”, circles through our…

A Study Through Proverbs 31

A Study Through Proverbs 31

As we open up God’s Word to Proverbs 31:10, I instantly feel at home.  Many years ago I made it a goal to memorize this passage of Scripture.  Memories of sitting on my bed in high school, my lamp on the night stand turned on, the Bible my youth pastor had given me opened on my lap, I worked and worked at memorizing this special part of God’s Word.  It isn’t that all of His Word isn’t special, because it…

A study through Proverbs 31

A study through Proverbs 31

In a world where our true identity is questioned, I feel very passionately about sharing with you about a woman all women should strive to mimic. Perfect, she was not. But she was godly.  A goal all of us should have! So over the course of the next little while, I want to take us both on a journey through the last part of Proverbs chapter 31. I’m excited to take this journey with you!  It is a passage of…

Continuing on with my “Soul Thing”

Continuing on with my “Soul Thing”

So I am in the middle of reading this book. It’s good. Thought provoking really. Have you heard of it? As I began to really dig into this book it didn’t take me long before I knew this was definitely the right book for me to be reading right now. It was in the second chapter when she said, “Writing is in my soul!”  As I sat in the quiet of my home early in the morning I wanted to…

Trusting the Lord, Not our heart

Trusting the Lord, Not our heart

You all (yes, I live in the south but have not caved into using the phrase “ya’ll…..) I have a confession. I feel silly admitting this, but I suppose it is time to get it out in the open. I am in love with Hobby Lobby. Can I get an amen from a sister? Seriously.  Those decorations… they make me weak in the knees at times!  Absolutely adorable home decorations beckon me constantly to come and swoon over them! So…

Fight For Your Marriage not Against It!

Fight For Your Marriage not Against It!

Have you ever had a wake up call? I’m not talking about the phone literally ringing and waking you up at dark thirty in the morning.  Rather, I’m talking about a wake up call in life.  A time when circumstances or events in your life alter you and the path you are on and make you really consider where you are headed. That is what happened this weekend to me. A shock.  A devastating shock.  Brokenness in an instant for…

Not a Nobody but God’s somebody!

Not a Nobody but God’s somebody!

Has God ever asked you to step outside of your comfort zone? Ya, me too. Have you ever made excuses for why your comfort zone was comfortable and you would like to remain there thankyouverymuch! Yes, guilty as charged! When God began to impress upon my heart to write, not just on a blog where only a sprinkling of people may find it and read it, but when He said, “Write a book!” at first I was excited!  Writing has…

The Man on the Corner

The Man on the Corner

He was dirty.  His hair was matted down.  His clothing had not been washed in what appeared to be a long time.  He sat on a divider in the road and held up a sign made of cardboard.  As many cars pulled up to the stop light they avoided eye contact with him and pushed the lock button on their doors.  He made them feel….. uncomfortable. “Share Me with that man” was what Christ said to my heart.  It wasn’t…

Keep Calm and Mother On!

Keep Calm and Mother On!

It was a day I spent kicking myself for simply, well, being me!  Wondering if my failures as a mama {that seemed to be so many!} were going to cause my children to turn from the Lord instead of turning to Him! I sat down at a table, opened up a book I had been reading about mothering and wasn’t two paragraphs in before I found myself silently saying, “Yes!! Yes, THIS is exactly how I feel!” Have you ever…

I want to follow God….. but……

I want to follow God….. but……

When I was about 9 years old I remember the call of God on my life.  I remember playing one day and I could sense God speaking to my heart.  I remember He gave me a burden for people to hear the Truth, the Gospel and I wanted to share that truth with the world.  I was shy though, how could God use me? One day I enrolled into college and I chose a specific major because I knew my…
