Idolatry Explained

You shall not make idols. It is one of the Ten Commandments and most would take a look at that one and do a mental “check” and move on. It seems it belongs with the other obvious ones like “Do not kill” and “Do not steal.” You take a sweeping glance around your house, you […]

How to Love Chores!

So I am sitting this evening after a very long day of errands. But I am sitting in a clean home awaiting tomorrow and celebrating my littlest turning another year older! With this party, came a lot of work, preparing my home, shopping etc. And this has been a rough week for me. A week […]

Remembering the Loss

Today, January 27th, marks 70 years since the liberation of Auschwitz-birkenau. Auschwitz was the site where 1.1 million men, women and children were slaughtered during the Holocaust. It’s a chilling site, the barren stretch of harsh brick and uniform walls, a remnant of a time of unthinkable horror and devastation. We look back with disbelief, […]

The Many Ways Moms Influence Their Daughters

I remember my littlest being my biggest imitator. She would walk around the house in her prized “clippy clops” with her purse and play phone in hand. A determined little one who had places to go and things to get done, she simply needed a car ignition big enough to fit the toy keys she […]

My Christmas Story

Christmas. A celebration of the birth of our Lord. It’s supposed to be a happy time…a time we’re surrounded by our friends and family. But sadly, that’s not always true for some of us. For some, Christmas contains memories that are so painful, we’d rather just skip it altogether. As I watch the hustle and […]

RACK Up the Cheer!

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. 1Peter 4:10 (NIV) This time of year I am always wrought with guilt that we don’t do enough. Enough traditions, enough giving, enough Carpe Christian Holiday! I grand plans, but I let […]

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 […]

Anyone Can Put On Makeup…

Anyone can put on makeup, get in the perfect lighting and the perfect camera angle to take a beautiful picture. Now-a-days our technology allows us all to be great photographers. But that’s not real beauty. So many of us take pictures of ourselves and post them publicly for the wrong reasons. The attention we seek […]

When the World Goes Mad, Give Me Jesus

I am pretty much reminded on a daily basis of what a fallen world we live in. It is darkness fueled by darkness. When episodes happen just a few days short of Thanksgiving, my heart fills with gratitude towards the only hope and light, Jesus. Through him I know I am just a moment in […]
