Enduring to Finish Well

I don’t know about you but every time I think of endurance, I think of all the runners out there. In my mind, I picture the numerous colors of running shoes as they run the trails before them. I’m fortunate to have two runners in my family and find it intriguing they prefer running a […]

Have Mercy On Me

I told you if you wouldn’t listen you would fail. I told you that if you go that direction, you would get lost! I told you that if you moved there that you wouldn’t have anyone. I told you to watch your money better. I told you to not play in the street. I told […]

Love Is Present

Love is present. In a world where social media is at my fingertips, self love is prevalent, and life is racing along, love is being present. Love is taking time to hear my daughter when she is animatedly describing new stories to her stuffed animals and dolls. Love is holding my son in the middle […]

Children, Obey Your Parents

We’ve all heard the verse from Ephesians, “Children, obey your parents in the Lord, for this is right” (6:1). As a mother, I have taught this verse to my children. I have tried to get them to understand it. There isn’t a Sunday School in the world that hasn’t taught this verse to little ones. It […]

Dear Mom Who Blames Herself…

I don’t know about you , but I love and adore encouraging mom posts! Being a mom is hard and tough! We live in a world full of comparison and I am tired of putting myself down because I may not parent like another person. It’s time we stop and encourage one another.   This […]

Joy in Affliction

“Those who sow in tears shall reap with joyful shouting. He who goes to and fro weeping, carrying his bag of seed, Shall indeed come again with a shout of joy, bringing his sheaves with him.” Psalm 126:5-6  The first time I read this verse I immediately thought of my children. Being a parent is hard! […]

When Your Children Hear Everything

  The most paralyzing realization sometimes is looking in the rear-view mirror and seeing that little person absorbing every last word you just uttered in anger…to their daddy. It’s quite the conviction watching my daughter bat her long eye-lashes with a worrisome look on her face and deep in her eyes she’s fearful of what […]

Grief Stricken Mom Life

“I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.”  Romans 8:18 NIV Grief can be caused by not just death of an individual. Ever lose a friendship that you put your heart and soul into for them to walk away? Have you ever lost a […]

Confession Of A Mom: Who Really Needs A Nap

  Laundry, dishes, sweeping, scrubbing, teaching, cooking, and changing endless amounts of diapers. A mother’s job is never-ending. We sacrifice our bodies, minds (I am out of mine most of the time), energy, and time. We pray for our children and our husbands. We don’t complain much about what we do because we love it. […]

Breathing in Peace

Take a moment, take a moment for yourself. Just breathe in and breathe out. Sit in silence or turn your favorite song on, you know the one, the one that relaxes you as soon as you hear it. Let the dishes wait, let the toys stay on the floor, that email you were supposed to […]
