Stand Assured

Can I tell you something?  Parenting is absolutely terrifying.  Those of you that are knee deep in the muck of your own parenting challenges are probably nodding your heads in agreement right now.  If so, thank you! Isn’t it a relief when we realize we are not alone? My children are ages four and six, […]

Love…in Such a Time

“Where were all the Christian women?”  These were the words that caught my attention and held my heart captive for days.   I sat across the table from my friend in a crowded coffee shop as she shared her testimony with me, spilling the details of pain and shame she has lived with since an […]


A Letter To My Friends…

As part of Bible Study homework, I was recently assigned the task of writing a letter to a friend telling them what scripture has meant to me personally.

Break open your words

Let the Light Shine Out

“Every word you give me is a miracle word—how could I help but obey?  Break open your words, let the light shine out, let ordinary people see the meaning.” -Psalm 119:129-130 MSG As you may or may not have noticed, I haven’t posted any recent blog posts.  To put it simply, I took a little […]


Stand Guard and Keep a Firm Grip

  A few weeks ago during a trip to the zoo, something incredible happened.  Incredible and frightening, I should say.  It was truly one of the most adrenaline packed moments I have ever experienced.

Keep a cool head.

I have given you an example to follow.

Dinner-time Interruptions

“[Jesus] got up from supper, and laid aside His garments, and taking a towel, He girded Himself.” -John 13:4 This particular season of motherhood has been difficult, which I know many of you can relate to.  Exhaustion and being simply worn out has led me to feel less like Jesus and more like the towel […]


At Your Wit’s End in a Raging Storm

“…they were at their wits’ end.  ‘Lord, help!’ they cried in their trouble and he saved them from their distress.  He calmed the storm to a whisper and stilled the waves.” -Psalm 107:27b-31 NLT Wit’s end.  Ever been there?  I think I have traveled to that destination so many times that I should have accrued […]

You Were Never Meant to Be Enough

You Were Never Meant to Be Enough

  “But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’” -2 Corinthians 12:9 “Here, this will work.  It’s good enough,” I say to my four-year-old as I toss her a broken yellow crayon for letter Y show and tell at preschool that day. I sweep […]

Let Him Write the Story

A year ago our women’s ministry hosted a ladies retreat with Susie Larson as our speaker.  After one of Susie’s sessions, she asked us this question, “What are you hanging on to that Jesus is asking for?”  Music played in the background and we were instructed to pray and ask Jesus what it is He […]
