• Disconnect After Kids

    April 16, 2018

    Being a parent is hard. And if you are a parent you know this to be all too true. But what makes parenting even harder is our tendency to idolize our kids. The overwhelming tendency of parenting to rest on a mother’s shoulders can serve as a distraction. We tend to our child’s every need,…

    March 26, 2018

    Do you ever look in the mirror and cringe? ‘Oh my golly this hair is wretched, my face is breaking out and this nose just looks somehow BIGGER than it did yesterday’. Me too sister and those are the days I want to crawl back into bed and not face anyone, especially my husband. Those…

  • Desiring Faith Over Fame

    March 19, 2018

    When I was a kindergarten teacher the end of year question was always”What do you want to be when you grow up?”. As you would guess many of the responses were typical. They wanted to be firefighters, policemen and pizza deliverers (pizza is life after all). They wanted to make the world better one cheesy…

  • Grace over Gossip

    March 12, 2018

    What do you say about your husband behind his back? If I am being 100% transparent, not everything I say is showering Clay with praise. In fact most of what I say is probably negative. Unfortunately, I have found this to be true with many Christian marriages. We gossip, complain and mutter inappropriate things behind…

    February 26, 2018

    The Garden of Eden was the most beautiful and perfect place on Earth where one of the biggest moments of humanity occurred. Perfection tainted by deception. A common theme in all history, yet to Eve this was unprecedented. Isn’t it ironic that Satan chose the most perfect place on Earth to set the snare? A place…

    February 22, 2018

    As Christians we often use the term blessed when discussing the gifts God’s given to us in our lives. “We have been blessed with a baby boy”, “I’ve been so blessed to be married to the love of my life”. ‘Blessed’ has become a Christian coin of phrase which has begun to lose it’s meaning;…

  • Why You Should Never Say ‘It’s Ok’

    February 22, 2018

    Clay and I were laying in bed, having just finished reading the Bible together when an argument broke out. Of course it was over something stupid and erupted because I had snapped at him. I stormed out of the room with Ezra and went to sit outside on the bench to cool off while Ezra…

    February 22, 2018

    Love is Patient, Love is Kind, love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. – 1 Corinthians 13:4-7 I don’t know about you, but absolutely LOVE…
