So much more…

So much more. That’s what I keep thinking about Jesus. He was so much more than anyone could have hoped or even dreamed of. When Jesus was born just over 2000 years ago, God’s people were waiting for a king. They longed for someone to rise up as a political leader and take back the…

presence over presents…

Yesterday I read something about Moses that really challenged me. It took place in Exodus 33 and I’ve read it a hundred times before. But this time, I saw something differently! God spoke to Moses and told him to go to the promised land. He promised Moses that he would give him the land, drive…

the road narrows…

I’m trying a new thing this winter and it involves bundling up in a million layers and heading outside as the sun is coming up. YIKES. Apparently, I am now living proof of what a non-winter person can accomplish when they are desperate for a little fresh air, a little alone time, and a little…

thorn in my flesh…

For some weird reason, in the back of mind, I figured the good Lord would heal me before the summer was over. Don’t ask me why… I just thought that he would heal me before I launched into another season of ministry. In the fall, my life races a hundred miles an hour with breakfast…

that time I made a sticker chart…

This is a family pic that we took on Mother’s Day. I LOVE my precious offspring…all four of them…but after weeks of quarantine and endless family time, I have never been more thankful or appreciative of babysitters. And grandmas. And date nights. And alone time.  Here’s why: my youngest two are not good listeners and…

that time I grabbed the scissors…

I am not a very patient person by nature (My husband snorted when he read that sentence. He says I am NOT AT ALL a patient person). Like, for instance, when I get an idea in my head. I will ruminate on it for about half of a day, but then I have to take…

purpose over perfection…

I LOVE my new house.  Every morning, my husband and I say to each other that we can’t believe we get to live here. It’s so much bigger than our last house, has room for entertaining, and the yard is beautiful. What a gift from God it is! It’s also REALLY out-of-date. HELLO 70’s! Lucky…

what I wish they knew…

What does a room full of teenagers need to know about God?    That was the question I kept asking myself as I was prepping for our first breakfast club.    It felt like a big and daunting question because God is BIG. It also felt like a big and daunting question because of the…

nice when they’re not…

You know what I find to be one of the hardest things to teach my kids? Be nice when the other person is not.  But that’s what I tell my kids when they divulge to me that other kids at school say mean things to them, or push them around. Be nice when they’re not. …

finding balance?

Being a parent is no joke.  It seems like I do not have enough time in the day, EVER, to get stuff done.  Actually, I get plenty done: driving kids around, yard work, laundry, meals, and paying bills.  I’m talking about the “me” stuff. That’s the stuff I can’t figure out how to do.  Please…
