Yesterday was one of those ugly, in-the-trenches mom days. Hours spent in the car shuffling around town to all the places we needed to be. A long wait at the doctor’s office with two kids and a baby in tow. Feeling well-covered in all the fluids that babies make (I’ll…(Read More)

Waking Up

by

I sat there with my friend chatting while our kids played nearby. It’s been a while since we’ve managed to get together, so there was plenty to catch up on. Usually our conversations run towards homeschooling, health/nutrition, family, and personal ministry: her calling within financial stewardship, mine in freedom and identity. But…(Read More)

What do we do with the hard things of God? Do we let doubts and unanswered prayers influence how we see God? Do we skim over scripture that we don’t think lines up with our concept of what a loving God should look like? How do we handle the death of a loved one…(Read More)

I’d lost hope completely. Whenever someone offered to pray for me…for this issue…I’d smile and say, “Sure, thanks!” But, inside, my heart had grown cold. I knew the prayer lifted up in genuine concern and out of love for me would fall flat. After living with a diagnosis for more than…(Read More)

I think we’ve lost sight of what it means to know. We hear someone’s name and think, “Yeah, I know them.” But we really have only seen their picture on Facebook, or on a tabloid cover, or in the news. Maybe we’ve even met them a few times, exchanged some chit-chat…(Read More)

A friend of mine is mama to three wonderful sons. I’m sure they’re quite human, with flaws and weaknesses. But I only know that because they have pulses beating. From my friend’s mouth comes life spoken over these sons of hers. She may be younger than me, but she’s a mama…(Read More)

It all began as a pretty typical girls’ night in – snacking, chatting, laughing, and (perhaps) a little dancing in the living room. But somewhere along the line, as we got to know each other a little better, we came across a beautiful discovery: our shared passion for creating. One girl, new to me, heard I…(Read More)

Today’s guest post is written by Kendra Hunt, a warm, wonderful, welcoming friend whose depths of wisdom and love never seem to end. Through life’s everyday circumstances, and often a touch of humor that lifts the spirit, she cuts to the heart of what a day-to-day relationship with God looks like…(Read More)

Do you ever get the feeling that something significant is about to change? That your present “ordinary” is about to be exchanged for a new normal? It’s one of those seasons for me. An off-hand joke tossed out. A random suggestion at the most unexpected time. And the soul stirs…longing, hoping, dreaming…(Read More)

Desperate To Be Seen

by

Much of my life I’ve felt invisible. Believed the lie that I’m so insignificant, so unimportant to others that I might as well be thin air for them to peer through. And all the while, I’ve longed to be peered into, to be seen. That’s how I lived in elementary school…(Read More)
