“I’m the Lord’s Servant”

To me, there is nothing more enjoyable at Christmas than reveling over the birth of Jesus, our Savior and King! It seems every year, something more profound reveals what was unnoticed to me before. It was a few years ago that Mary made center stage. It wasn’t so much as her being chosen or what […]

That Time I Lost It At The Grocery Store

“Like a city whose walls are broken through is a person who lacks self-control.” –Proverbs 25:28 I was out running errands with the children in tow. We returned some books to the library and checked out some more. Then, we proceeded to go to our local grocery store for a few essentials. As I was […]

When It’s Not the Most Wonderful Time of Year

Did you know statistically, the holiday season is the highest ranked for depression and suicide? “How can that be? It’s such a joyful season.” Because, dear friends, some people don’t know the true joy of the season. The Grinch is right, it doesn’t come from packages, boxes or bags. Christmas does mean more! Very much more! It means the […]

Submitting Control

My friends and I used to ask each other in high school which part of ourselves we would change if we could…it was probably a very unhealthy game that rooted in a lot of self hatred. But I actually had this thought today, where I wondered what my answer would be now. It wouldn’t be […]

Freedom From Motherhood

When you think about freedom, what comes to mind? Maybe this great country that so many of us are blessed to live in, the United States of America? Or possibly the freedom that comes through Christ, of Jesus dying on the cross to take away our sins? Freedom that comes from not having to worry […]

I Want You to Want Me

There are days when my best laid plans to really stop and sit with the Lord are thwarted—all day long. This past week I had one day in particular that was primed and ready for some really great journal, worship, and prayer time. We had nothing on the agenda and even “getting out of my […]

Women Don’t Like to Talk About This…Today, We Are.

As you’ve noticed by the title, this is a topic most women just don’t talk about. Today, we’re talking about rape. So many women have suppressed their memories of the horrific event…in some cases, the multiple events. Women have chosen to suppress the memory, never speak of it, and act as if it never happened […]

What Will You Have To Endure Today?

Do you ever have mornings where you wake up and think to yourself, “What am I going to have to endure today?” I know, it’s not the right attitude to have, especially first thing in the morning…but it’s a feeling that, I’ll admit, I experience way too often. Maybe you’re dealing with a family member’s bad attitude […]

A Blessing In Disguise

Sometimes hindrances make a way for the greatest blessings in our life. On the surface that doesn’t make sense, right? From our limited perspective, we don’t count hindrances as blessings. Or think they could lead to blessings either. But it’s true. If not for my own experience, I wouldn’t say this with confidence. But friend, […]

Count Your Blessings

Blessings are all around us. But, how often do we stop to thank God for them? How often do we find ourselves too busy to even recognize the blessings? There are days that go by when I don’t take the time to thank God for the things He has blessed me with. I heard a […]
