When My Marriage Was Failing

I was looking up Scriptures to have something validate the fact that I wanted divorce. While there may have been good enough reason to do it, my heart still held on. The Holy Spirit yelled louder than my flesh, “Hold on! Hold On! Don’t let go!” I couldn’t vision my future allowing him to do this to […]

How to Deal with a Screaming Toddler

I would like to just start this post off by saying that this title describes my everyday life with a 3 year old and (almost) 2 year old.  However, this does not mean that I have all of the answers! I thought we could just start off with a little humor: Who can relate?! Oh […]

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 […]

Faith is Trusting God with Your Hope

Almost a year ago, I was journaling one morning and I felt the Holy Spirit ask me, “What is your wildest dream?” I had been holding in a fantasy of writing a book deep in my heart. I wrote on paper that I wanted to be a writer. With that I released a long-hidden dream. […]

How To Get From Disappointment To Hope

We all have disappointments in our lives. We’re passed up for that promotion, our kids don’t get the grades we think they should, or someone treats us badly. Life is full of them. Sometimes it seems like every time we turn around there is more disappointment. God never promised us an easy life, or that […]

Faith, Hope, and Love

Hope has been on my mind a lot lately. The song, You Won’t Let Go, by Michael W. Smith is a favorite of mine. The line, “Hope is the anchor for my soul, you won’t let go, you won’t let go.” goes straight to my spirit each time I hear it. Of course he is merely poetically […]

Hope Abiding

Pain. Agonizing pain. It rips through your body and crushes your spirit. The kind that takes all of your strength just to get through the day. “The Lord is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit.” Psalm 34:18 I have been suffering from chronic pain for over a year now. In March of […]

What does HOPE look like to you?

I love how Joyce Meyer describes hope as “During a storm, Hope gives us the ability to look at things as they are and still be confident that something better is coming.” Each day we have a choice to make as we wake up and face internal and external distractions, emotions, situations, etc: We can […]

What Hope Means

Hope. It is a wonderful word, that you would be surprised, is more powerful then what we may think. I have been doing Summer camp for three weeks this June and one of our bible studies was on the word Hope. When we think of hope, we think……“I hope I get the job……I hope the […]

Learning to Be Patient

Motherhood brings out the best and worst sides of me. I never knew I was capable of living on so little sleep, or keeping a human alive solely on my own body’s ability to produce food. Simultaneously, I never knew how impatient I could become, how easily irritated, how much like all of the things […]
