Freedom Is Never Free

I live in an area of the country that is saturated with military presence. There is an army base, navy base, air force base, coast guard base, marine corps base, weapons stations, and the list goes on. At every turn there is military personnel. My husband’s sister is a military wife. Her husband is in […]

A Day in the Life: Letting the Holy Spirit Manage My Stress

A few weeks ago a friend of mine asked me to do her a favor. As she was out of town, soon to be coming home, some friends from her church offered to straighten her house. My friend had given me the key, so I met up with her friends to show them where she […]

Sacrificing Yourself for Him

Through some of our lives (I know mine for sure) we all make our own paths and don’t know God and his will for us, I always made my own path and it was rough, it was hard; I kicked and screamed and pried open doors that were not meant to open. I pushed and […]

Sacrifices of a “Super” Mom

I feel that no matter where you are in your mom timeline, whether you are a mom of a 19-year-old and step-mother of 2 like me or of younger children. There is a time in life where we look back and wonder, “Were my children happy? Was I happy with certain decisions or where was […]

“No” is Key

For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do. Ephesians 2:10 (NIV) I am living in an exciting season of life. The kids are no longer babies. I don’t have anyone in diapers and I even have one in school! I’ve never […]

What Have You Sacrificed?

Do you remember before you had children how you imagined your life would be once you were a mommy? The picket fence and waking up every morning bright-eyed ready to greet your little pumpkin and start your day that would go smoothly.  I don’t know about you, but how I imagined mommy-hood is not quite […]

Sacrifice and Pride

It is said that moms know what sacrifice is. They make the ultimate sacrifices for their children, household, day in, day out. I am not downing moms in any way. In fact, whenever I see this I raise my head proudly and say, “YEP! I am a mom!! It’s all about my kids and my husband […]

Sacrifice of Sixpence

Tonight I sat out in the sticky humidity that is central Texas right now and watched my kids run through sprinklers, dodging one another in the setting sunlight. It was such a beautiful, compact picture of contentment. As I sat there I wondered, what will my generation offer to the next? What am I offering […]

Remaining Loyal

The Wikipedia Dictionary says Loyalty is “faithfulness or a devotion to a person, country, group, or cause.” God is the very essence of what loyalty is. “Know therefore that the LORD your God is God, the faithful God who maintains covenant loyalty with those who love Him and keep His commandments, to a thousand generations” Deuteronomy 7:9 We […]

He Will Replace

When an addict is learning to manage their addiction, they have to learn that they have addictive tendencies that transcend the object in which they are abusing. For example, I have seen people that get off the addiction of alcohol only to become gambling addicts. They got help to get off alcohol, but they did […]
