For me it all started with a single, seemingly random question, “Do you have a blog?  Because if you did, I would read it.” A sweet friend asked me in passing one day and I’m sure she had no idea the seed she planted.  I was tempted to simply take her question as the…(Read More)

Taking a Stand

by

I awoke to a flurry of excitement on Facebook and Twitter proclaiming that the Texas Senate had passed House Bill 2 (HB2) which places some hefty restrictions on the abortion industry in the State of Texas.  Those restrictions include a ban on abortions after 20 weeks gestation except in situations which threaten the life of…(Read More)

About four years ago, I sat in my small women’s group and received a personal prophetic word.

Do you find it difficult when the seasons of your life change?  Each season has its own unique set of priorities.  What season are you in right now? Today, I’m taking a look at how priorities changed for me and how God gave me peace in the midst of radical life adjustments.  I’d…(Read More)

Yesterday was one of those days in my land of mommy-hood…struggling to make it through the day…frustrated at the seemingly constant need for redirection, melt-down diffusion, and overall discipline.  After these many moments with my son, when bedtime came for the kids, I was amazed when he skipped over to me…(Read More)
