Why I don’t want to be the G.O.A.T.

I realized something while studying Matthew 18-20 and it’s this: I can’t pursue greatness and godliness at the same time. It’s one or the other. One is about glory for self and one is about glory for God. One is about being great and one is about being the least. The world says be the…

SNOWMAGEDDON.

Snowmageddon. That’s what I’m calling it. There is so much snow it feels like the end of the world is coming. No matter how many times I beg, it.won’t.stop.snowing. #snowfordays  All this snow brings snow days, event cancellations, and my personal favorite: snow removal. Oh sweet Jesus, the snow removal. This winter, my fam is…

holding on…

I’m just going to throw this out there, even though you will probably think I am crazy. Actually, if you read my blogs often enough, chances are good you already think I am nuts…so what do I have to lose? Here it is: when I go for jogs, I hear God speak to me. Sometimes,…

an inventory of my heart…

I took an inventory of my heart this week, to see what was taking up space in there. What I found was not so stellar. Some of it wasn’t so bad – like the love and desire that I have to chase Jesus with reckless abandon, or the deep passion I have to share truth.…

the post about bread…

I love bread. I miss eating good bread (thank you, gluten intolerance). I wish I could go back to when I was a kid and bread was a staple at the dinner table – when it was considered necessary and nutritional. And I could eat it without feeling sick. These days, bread is classified as…

just because you believe something doesn’t make it true…

For years, I made decisions based on what I believed. I believed I had to look a certain way. I believed I had to be a certain weight. I believed I had to dress just right. I believed I needed to have the perfect house. I believed that if I could be as close to…

the if / then game…

You’ve probably already noticed that I’m studying the book of Matthew because it shows up in my writing every week. This blog is no exception. I’m studying Matthew 14, a chapter I have read 100 times already. But this time it was different…so wanted to share my thoughts with you.  This time, I saw the…

raising warriors…

Let your light shine. It sounds so poetic, doesn’t it? I have been saying that phrase to my bigs ( ages 17 & 14) everyday before they go to school for at least 5 years. “Bye kids! Have a great day! Let your light shine!” At first, I was encouraging them to: Do their best.…

#cringe

I treasure so many things: My bible. It’s gotten me through the last 7 years. Without it, I would be lost. My coffee. Thank you Jesus for coffee…and creamer. My sweet husband. Clearly, these are not listed in order of importance… My four beautiful children. They are a gift, even though they mostly make me…

#FTW verses

Verses that help me keep winning for eternity as my goal: 2 Corinthians 4: 16-18 “That is why we never give up. Though our bodies are dying, our spirits are being renewed everyday. For our present troubles are small and won’t last very long. Yet they produce for us a glory that vastly outweighs them…
