I have been asked more than once in my life, what does anxiety feel like? It feels like admitting that you are struggling. Admitting that you can’t handle it anymore is one of the most difficult confessions that a mother can make. “It” being, well, everything. Life. The kids. Business. Schoolwork. Successfully managing a home. […]
Helping Your Children Understand your Anxiety by Courtney Kirkland
A few days ago, I posted something on Instagram that received a lot of really honest feedback from my followers. For those who aren’t following the government shutdown, we are right in the middle of it. We moved to California last July and with that transition came a lot of changes for our family. Changes […]
It’s been quiet around here. 2018 has, so far, brought a whirlwind of changes for our family. We bid farewell to North Carolina and made the very long 3,000 mile drive cross country to California. After a couple of nonstop weeks, we finally got unpacked, settled down, and are falling into a new rhythm. I’m […]
I don’t do well with time frames, guys. As I’m sure you can tell seeing as how two of the three Fervent posts so far have been late. It’s not that I don’t try to get these up on time, but sometimes when the good Lord is doing work in an area of your life, you […]

"And at the end of the day, when I stand before God at those pearly gates, I know that I will answer for the mistakes that I have made (and heaven knows there’s been a lot of them). I know that I will have to give an account of all the wrong doing in my life."
"Not all of our lives are meant to look identical. What looks right for you doesn’t have to look right for me. While I take my role within our home very seriously and believe it to be the most important thing I will ever do, I don’t find my fulfillment there. And that is okay."
"It wasn’t until I started feeling the conviction of my lack of prayer life, that I realized something…If I’m not praying intentionally over my husband, my marriage, my children and our lives, then who is? That’s what has inspired me to start a prayer binder..."
