God Happenings

Like I said in my last post…..I’m so full of stuff to tell you.  Awesome stuff. And I don’t really know how to articulate it all. A lot of the things that have been going on and showing up in our lives lately – have left me speechless. And that’s a rare feat. For weeks now I’ve been asking: “How… Read more →


Sometimes, I just want to stay up late. I know my four year old will come prancing into my bedroom in the wee hours of the morning tomorrow saying…. “Mommmy! It’s morning!” I know my 1 year old will be waking up shortly after that looking for me. I know I will probably end up being groggy and tired all… Read more →

The Lady’s

I cannot count the number of times I have been strengthened by another woman’s heartfelt hug, appreciative note, surprise gift, or caring questions…my friends are an oasis to me, encouraging me to go on. They are essential to my well-being. – Dee Brestin Rich is the woman who has a praying friend. – Janice Hughes When you are truly joined… Read more →

Billy Book Review – Finally.

So this is ridiculous. I’m so embarrassed and red in the face. Way back a long time ago – right before I found out I was having baby #2 – I signed up to be a book review blogger for Thomas Nelson. They sent me my first book – I read it feverishly – found out I was pregnant –… Read more →

The Corn

And I’m in awe of all the lovely ladies out there who manage to post the most profound and inspiring messages – just about every week or… Read more →

Our business is to be good and happy today.” – Sydney Smith  If I ride the wings of the morning, if I dwell by the farthest oceans, even there your hand will guide me, and your strength will support… Read more →

These Kind of Tears

I’ve never known this kind of sorrow. I still don’t. I’ve never experienced this kind of empathy. This kind of pain. This kind of sad. This kind of devastation. All for another. I can’t stop the tears from flowing. My chest hurts. My stomach churns. It feels like the world should stop. For her. For them. It feels like the… Read more →

Wise Words From a Three Year Old

My son is changing my life. I just wanted to let you in on a sweet little conversation he and I had earlier this morning…. I was in the kitchen making chicken noodle soup and honey oatmeal bread (Don’t get excited. I’m not always so homemaker-ish) – when I looked outside and noticed how hard it was snowing. I turned… Read more →
