“What matters most to you?”  When someone asks me this question, I give the answer: “my relationships with God, my husband and my children.”  Now, doesn’t that sound sweet?  Isn’t that the “right” answer?  I now imagine what would happen if that person then asked me to prove it.  How do I prove…(Read More)

So, yesterday was a pretty terrible day for me.  Nothing external that happened was bad necessarily.  It was mostly just me…emotions running high and hormones running everywhere.  I was absolutely NOT at my best and I knew it.  (Anyone relating here??) But this morning, something miraculous happened!  I got a fresh start!  I woke…(Read More)

I Need a Do-Over

by

Perhaps you can relate to this: waking up to the sound of monkey noises coming from the child who is both climbing on you and attempting to pull you out of bed simultaneously.  The house is a wreck from the day before spent NOT doing any chores, the kitchen has no clean dishes, the children…(Read More)

An Honored Position

by

I came across this snippet of thought a few months back, from the time nearly four years ago when I had a two-year-old and an almost one-year-old keeping me very busy. Now, I’m still busy, in a different sort of way. Those two are older, but still have their definite…(Read More)

For over five years I have had the amazing privilege of being a part of two small groups of women. Despite my homebody tendencies and somewhat introverted nature, I have found a safe haven of fun, accountability and genuine friendship with some of the most godly women I know.

A Few Guarantees

by

We trekked a couple hours away to attend my grandfather’s 75th birthday party last weekend. It’s so wonderful to have some guarantees in being a part of this family. For one, there will most definitely always be food there. (Don’t even think about eating beforehand and don’t bother to bring anything…(Read More)

Do you know the feeling where one minute you “have it together” and then one thing after another your world feels turned upside-down? It’s a battle and it feels like one. Psalm 23:5 says, “You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies…” We are in a battle, warring…(Read More)

Steve proposed to me on the way up to Mount Evans in Colorado. The setting was breathtaking – surrounded by pine trees, with a touch of snow on the ground, and an amazing panoramic view of snow-capped mountains nearby. We revisited this spot on our recent vacation. The trees were taller and some new campfire…(Read More)

A Well-Spent Life

by

You might call me a “time-keeper” if you saw me everyday. I constantly check the clock and make daily use of my planner and wall calendar. For some reason time bears a great weight on me. I hate being late for anything and easily get irritated when someone else arrives after the appointed time…(Read More)

Face-to-Face

by

With Rosh Hashanah (the Jewish New Year) now past, the next “feast” God set in place is actually a fast, Yom Kippur, or the Day of Atonement. So, a (hopefully) really brief history: The Day of Atonement is first mentioned in Leviticus 23:26-32. Basically what happened was the high priest would take one…(Read More)
