Are You Truly Thankful?

Chase and I were watching a television show the other night after we had put the boys to bed.  Part of the story line was about a young married couple who was trying to have a baby but had not yet conceived.  It was consuming the young man and affecting his attitude in all other...

What Are You Trusting In?

Some trust in chariots and some in horses, but we trust in the name of the LORD our God.  Psalm 20:7 NIV Good morning! Trust...such a powerful word.  One that holds weight. What or whom do we trust in? Trust - (noun) assured reliance on the character, ability, strength, or truth of someone or something... Continue Reading →

When Life Bombards Us

  Good morning! Anyone else feel absolutely bombarded by life lately?!  I know, I know, it's summer right!! But along with swimming pools, T Ball, bike rides and frog catchin' there is still work, chores, cleaning, etc. that needs done. I totally feel like life has been controlling me lately instead of me putting life... Continue Reading →

Stop and Smell the Roses

Good morning and Happy Tuesday! It can be so hard to get back into the swing of things after a three-day weekend, can't it?  It feels like a Monday, but actually its Tuesday and it can throw us all for a loop!  It can make us feel behind, almost anxious to "catch up" with time....

Spend Your Time Well

Good afternoon! There is never substitution for time spent.  Sometimes we have a hundred other things to do... Things we have planned in our minds. Things we have on a list written down somewhere. Things we have placed as priority. But there is never a greater priority than raising the very humans God gave us.... Continue Reading →

Thankful Thursday

Good afternoon! By the time Thursday afternoon rolls around I'm in desperate need of a mental reset.  And the best way to reset our minds is to focus on the things we are thankful for.  It turns our thoughts from the things weighing us down to Jesus and the amazing gifts He provides. So, here... Continue Reading →

When Words Aren’t Enough

Good morning! I am just loving these longer days!  You?  I love that the sun rises early and floods the earth with its presence.  As I stand out admiring the view of colors there is a peace that comes.  A unique stillness so inviting to praise Him in the moment. I continue to water the... Continue Reading →

Monday Morning Hangover

Good afternoon! Did anyone else experience the Monday morning hangover affect this morning from Mother's Day?  I totally had this attitude and thought process of "I don't have to do that today" yesterday and I did thoroughly enjoy the day with my family. However, at 9:00 PM last night I found myself doing the boys... Continue Reading →

Where Our Help Comes From

Happy Monday! As we kick-start our week I felt encouraged to share with you where our help comes from.  As I spent some quiet time with the Father this weekend and prayed about the upcoming doctor appointment (today) for our son I was greatly encouraged by the scriptures in Psalm 121. I lift up my... Continue Reading →

Declaring Truth

Have you let the heaviness of your current circumstances weigh you down? I'm here to tell you it can happen before we know it.  And don't worry...you're not alone.  This world can be brutal and unless we chase after the truth, the lies will consume us. As I sat down at my kitchen table a... Continue Reading →

Pushing Through

Good morning! I set out for a run yesterday and I had barely gotten a half mile in when I had a twinge in my right knee and some nerves speak fire through my left foot.  I thought to myself, "maybe I shouldn't go as far today".  I have experienced pain in my left foot... Continue Reading →

Time Off

Good morning! Have you ever wanted the day off?  From EVERYTHING?  I have had a few days like that... One of our boys had a pretty severe asthmatic attack last week and ended up in the hospital.  We are grateful that he was only in for three days and by Friday we couldn't wait to...

Blue Skies Up Ahead

Good morning! Spring's around the corner!  Spring's around the corner!  I can hear the tune over and over in my head.  It makes me think of blue skies and sunshine!  But what about the circumstances that surround us when they don't feel like blue skies and sunshine?  When they feel more like dark skies and...
