Sharing Jesus With Our Children

Sharing Jesus With Our Children

In my devotions this week I have been working my way through the book of Judges. Earlier this past week I read chapter 2 and as I read the Lord caused two verses to stand out to me. Isn’t it amazing that as we read God’s Word it really is alive and the Holy Spirit seems to highlight just what He wants us to glean that day!   On this particular day it was verses 10 & 11, “And there…

Encouragement for Moms, Pt 1

Encouragement for Moms, Pt 1

Nine years ago my husband and I were full of anticipation!  We were about to become parents to a little girl and we were ready for this new adventure!  We had read a lot of books, we had a plan together, we wanted to take on parenting and just knew it would work out exactly as we planned. Then she came. Funny how that works out, right? We think we have it all together and then reality comes and we…

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…

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…

The Little Years

The Little Years

I am a Mom, parenting in the little years.  It seems there is a constant need or want that is always present.  Someone hanging on my legs or vying for my attention.  Sometimes it can be weary-some. I don’t want to sound like I’m complaining, but I’m also not going to sugar coat anything.  Some days I fall into bed thinking, “Well, today was an utter fail!” Ever been there? I adore my children.  I am SO thankful that I…
