Encouragement for Moms, pt. 2

Encouragement for Moms, pt. 2

The alarm clock goes off {or you are awakened by a crying child, a toy being tossed your way, or a dog licking you awake!} and so the day begins.  Get up, put the coffee pot on, pour the kids cereal and as soon as they hear those cheerios hit the bowl out the kids come from their bedrooms.  The day then kind of takes off on its own as everyone gets ready for the day.  Before we know it…

Disrupting the Status Quot

Disrupting the Status Quot

As we look out around us it is quite evident that our world is full of brokenness and we don’t even have to look very far to see it. In reality all we have to do is look up from our daily grind and there it is staring back at us.  As Christians I think even though we may not admit it readily, we would enjoy living in our own little bubble of what we would consider safety.  Going about…

Sharing Jesus through Foster Care

Sharing Jesus through Foster Care

When I was a little girl I remember when I found out that there were children who no one wanted.   Stories of orphanages full of babies and children who had no one to love on them, no one to kiss their owies, or wipe their tears away.  No one to cheer them on and say “You CAN do it!”  No one to share the love of God with them. They simply had no one.  From that moment on God…

Can I Be A Hero Too?

Can I Be A Hero Too?

Has there ever been anyone in your life whom you have looked up to?  Most everyone has “heroes” they admire and dream of becoming like!  What about spiritually speaking, has there ever been someone you have admired from afar?  Their faith amazes you, their strength is beyond your comprehension, their dedication to Christ no matter what happens to them is never wavering!  When you grow up you want to be just like them! There have been a few, what I like…

When God Does Exactly What We Have Asked….and It Hurts

When God Does Exactly What We Have Asked….and It Hurts

As I was busy around the house one day I had some music playing in the background on our computer.  Songs that I love which are also upbeat and a great motivation to keep me busy with the tasks at hand.  Songs about God being good, words requesting God to deepen my faith in Him, praise to God, and even words asking God to break me to draw me closer to Him. I scrubbed the kitchen counter top, literally scrubbing…

Books On My Nightstand

Books On My Nightstand

As a younger ministry wife and mom I didn’t really seem to have time to read!  I had the desire, but the time seemed to slip away each day and I would fall into bed exhausted!  Anytime I picked up a book to read I would fall asleep!  I know many of you all can relate!  I was good to squeeze in my Bible reading for the day, know what I mean? However, two years ago I felt the urge…

Chasing After God

Chasing After God

For 6 years now we have had Lucy, our cocker spaniel.  She was the cutest little thing as a puppy and had so much energy!  As a 6 year old dog now, her energy level is about the same as it was when she was tiny!  She has made us chuckle on many occasions especially when she chases her (rather non-existent) tail.  Around and around she goes trying to grasp at something that isn’t even there.  She doesn’t realize how…

Three tips on Being Still

Three tips on Being Still

In the chaos of life always on the go, how can we be still?  We have learned that life is just busy, but have we been taught how to actually be still and rest? Let’s take a deeper look together today! First, being still requires getting alone with God daily.  This seems like a no-brainer right?  Yet, how many of us with great intentions of having faithful devotions with God have found ourselves allowing time to slip by without spending…

Learning To Be Still

Learning To Be Still

Each year for the past several years now I have had a word, or a phrase that I try to either learn more about or set a goal to be like.  This past year my goal for the year was choosing joy.  Now, even though that was my goal, I did not always choose joy throughout the year.  However God taught me a lot about this tiny little word and how it impacts our lives in such a big way!…
