Lending a Helping Hand

Good morning! There are so many ways to show acts of kindness.  I talked about gift giving a couple days ago.  Did any of you send gifts?  The boys were so excited about the gifts they had bought for each other they were up at 4:30 in the morning to open them!  LOL!  Getting gifts...

Abounding in Love and Faithfulness

Abounding - existing in or providing a great or plentiful quantity or supply (definition from the Merriam-Webster dictionary) Good morning! I love this word... especially when it is used to express the Father's love and faithfulness.  It is great.  It is plentiful.  It never runs out and never gives up.  It is abundant. But you,...

Give Thanks Always

Good morning! What a week it has been!  Since last Thursday it has been a roller coaster ride around our house.  I got super sick with a sore throat and body ache thing and had to cancel a family trip, we have had a family member in the hospital for an unexpected surgery, a scare...

Our Necessary Quiet Retreat

You are my place of quiet retreat; I wait for your Word to renew me. Psalm 119:114 MSG Good morning! In a world full of distraction where do we go for a quiet retreat? As a mom to young children it seems like every direction I turn there is something calling out to me; piles... Continue Reading →

Dear Father

When I was born you held me.  As I grew you guided me. When I was scared you protected me.  When I was excited you would hug me. When I needed guidance you shared wisdom with me.  When I felt alone you stayed with me. When I wandered away you kept your eye on me...never... Continue Reading →

Summer Here We Come!

Good morning! Time, routine, schedules.  All words that have been floating around in the mind of every mother whose child/children are about to be out of school for the summer.  The "normal" routine of life is about to drastically change gears as school comes to an end and summer begins. What do some of your... Continue Reading →

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 →

Celebrating Moms

Good morning! Being a mom is one of the greatest assignments God has ever blessed me with.  To care for, nurture and love a child is a privilege beyond my comprehension. I will never forget the day we found out that I was going to be a mom.  It came as such a surprise, but... Continue Reading →

Just Take A Moment

Oh, that we might love the LORD! Let us press on to know him.  He will respond to us as surely as the arrival of dawn or the coming of rains in early spring.  Hosea 6:3 Good morning! As I watch the heavy snow fall this spring morning, I couldn't help but smile with excitement... Continue Reading →

Live Life Full

Good morning! Easter is always a humbling experience...it can work in our hearts to align them with a love that is unimaginable.  It is out of this love and Jesus's experience on the cross that we are able to receive freedom in this life.  What Jesus did for us,  how He loves us, and the...

The Power of Community

Good morning! The last couple weeks have been completely unbalanced and unpredictable.  From the time changing, to a massive blizzard, to Qwade being in the hospital, to being stuck at home for 10 days for his lungs to heal, to broken computers and stolen bank information.  Seriously...sometimes there are no words. Have you ever walked... 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...

Looking for Victory?

Good morning! As I was reading along in Deuteronomy (one of my favorites) this morning Moses was telling the Israelite people once again to "not be afraid,  the LORD you God, who brought you out of Egypt, is with you!"  (Deut 20:1)  He goes on saying "Do not lose heart or panic or tremble before...

Staying Pliable

Good afternoon! I spoke to a group of girls at a rodeo bible camp a few years back about being "pliable".  (easily bent or flexible; yielding, adaptable, adjusting readily to change) At that point it was a new thing for me.  I was pretty set in my ways... I had done things the same way... Continue Reading →

Wholeness

Good morning! Letting go is hard...it tends to leave a hole in our hearts that we aren't really sure what to do with.  Recently I let go of something that had become very important to me...and honestly I wasn't really sure how to navigate the new unknown territory.  I wasn't sure what was to come...
