Faith + Prayer

FILED IN:

My husband and I haven’t always been tens when it comes to parenting our children. We, like most people, have days where we are on point with our parenting skills. We do things well; we work together (as mom and dad) well, our kids get along and everyone is happy. We hit the mark on […]

Raising Arrows

If I were your enemy, I’d seek to disintegrate your family and destroy every member of it.  I’d want to tear away at your trust and unity and turn everyone’s love inward on themselves.  I would make sure your family didn’t look anything like it’s supposed to.  Because then people would look at your Christian marriage , […]

I would be lying if I said that I was completely comfortable in my own skin. Because I am not. For as long as I can remember, my insecurities have haunted me and hindered me.

If I were your enemy, I’d disguise myself and manipulate your perspectives so that you’d focus on the wrong culprit—your husband, your friend, your hurt, your finances, anything or anyone except me.

My oldest son loves football. I […]

Have you ever been Black Friday shopping? I don’t mean “Black Friday on Thursday night” shopping like the stores do now; with Walmart cutting open Reynolds Wrapped boxes at certain times to allow people to dig into what it contains. Although that can be a bit chaotic in and of itself, I’m talking about old […]

A Call to Arms

It has quite literally been almost an entire year since I’ve written on this site. I can not believe it. I went from being a person who wrote once or twice a week to someone who wrote only one time in the last almost 365 days. 2017 has been a very long, chaotic and challenging […]

Still Moments in Busy Seasons

• keep reading •

There comes a point, I believe, in every believes faith where they reach an “aha!” moment. We go through a time where we don’t necessarily turn our back on God, nor do we really question God or his authority, but we start to kind of figure things out. The little things start to click and […]
