Waiting on the Moth

“Be still, and know that I am God…” Psalm 46:10 “Abby, come quickly to the garage.” I knew she would be so excited to see the chunky caterpillar crawling on the floor. As predicted, she was thrilled by my discovery and wanted to keep him. Minutes later, our little friend had a new home in […]

Satan and Lace

“Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.” 1 Peter 5:8 NIV “Satan and Lace? What kind of store is that, Mom? It sounds really weird,” my young son blurted out. I peered at my children in the back seat of our […]

The Losing Battle of Expectations

“I don’t understand what I am doing wrong?” I vented to a friend. It wasn’t the first time I had uttered the phrase. Expectations were defeating me once again. “I do this and that and blah, blah, blah.” I rambled on to my husband, “Why can’t I even get a text or a phone call?” […]

When Your Kids Talk Back

Sass Back talk Sauce Cheek Lip Guff Depending on where you live, one of the above mentioned words is commonly used to describe the disrespectful rebuttal kids give their parents from time to time.

What Does the Bible Say About Judging?

I recently read an article about the topic of judgment. It seems as though many people misunderstand what the Bible teaches on this topic. Matthew 7:1 explicitly denounces judgment, as do many other verses throughout the Bible.

A Mother’s Guide to Sanity

As a mom, each changing season of my children’s metamorphosis to adulthood comes with challenges and growth.
