Religion Vs Relationship

You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. Jeremiah 29:13 I have been thinking a lot about my friendships lately. I don’t have the best track record when it comes to creating and maintaining deep friendships. Growing up, most of my friends were boys. They were just easier […]

Seek First for Self-Control

My whole life has been connected to the Church. I am sure I occupied a spot in a pew long before I could walk. I have vivid memories of doing my best to get comfortable enough to sleep; using my mom’s lap as a pillow and curling up on a hard, wooden pew bench that […]

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 […]

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 […]

It isn’t ironic that this week we are dwelling on loyalty and what it means for our lives. This week, in my life, means I’m hopping on a long flight to Texas with my two kids strapped next to me, heading to celebrate my high school best friend’s marriage to her boyfriend of nearly 12 […]

Confessions of a Mom Afraid of Prayer

Did that title jump out at you? Yes, this is me. I am coming to you with my heart wide open! Prayer intimidates me. I feel like I have to pray a certain way, if I don’t get the right words in, will it even be considered prayer? I stick to the cliche, “Dear Lord, […]

The Power of Redemption

As my babies turn into toddlers we have certainly turned a corner in our world of parenting.  I have been so focused on trying to control their environment and teach them to the power of obedience and show them through obedience that I love them and I am doing everything I can to protect them. […]
