I Just Want You

by

I want to learn how to be a better wife, so my husband will know how much I love him. I want to raise my kids with love and tenderness and discipline so that they will always know I’m a safe place. I want to keep my house (relatively) clean so I can have…(Read More)

Happy, Sweet New Year

by

This is a revised re-post celebrating and diving into the beautiful symbolism of Rosh Hashanah, the Jewish New Year.  Since Jesus was a Jew, I find it adds to the depth of my understanding of who God is when our family celebrates the Jewish Feasts as believers in Christ.  It’s not something we…(Read More)

As a mom, I tend to say “no” a lot.  It has many forms: “maybe in a little bit”…”not right now”…”let me finish this first”…”just a minute” (then an hour passes)…”Mommy’s busy right now”…and so on. And, yes, there are perfectly appropriate times for “no”: “no, don’t touch…(Read More)

I never would’ve imagined not being able to talk at the Declare Conference I attended this past weekend.  I’ve looked forward to this for a year…planning to meet wonderful women who love Jesus and writing as much as I do…talking with the many sponsors that helped make this event possible about…(Read More)

  I’ll admit I’m not so savvy about the options of phones out there…especially when it comes to comparing features and all.  But one thing I do know about my phone is that the speaker phone setting leaves a lot to be desired. So, when my husband is calling from an out…(Read More)

Got Vision?

by

So, life can be difficult sometimes…and a bit mysterious, right?  And when I don’t have a clear vision for what I’m doing, it can get downright frustrating. A few years ago, my hubby and I (finally) agreed that we would homeschool our kids.  (By the way, this post is not about whether…(Read More)

Embracing the Mess

by

I failed finger-painting in kindergarten.  Spaghetti sauce splatters on my stove-top bug me. Crumbs on the floor following cornbread at dinner make me go “eew!” And, yet, God gave me kids. Maybe He wanted to teach me some things?  Just maybe. Living is a messy thing.  As much as I’d like it…(Read More)
