Appreciating Our Differences

Appreciating Our Differences
I crave relationships. I get energized by being around people. My husband is the opposite.

I need alone times to recharge but he needs alone to function. Neither is bad—just differences in our personalities. The more I have learned about introverts/extroverts, the more I have learned to appreciate our differences. Read More

Trusting God with Your Child's Faith

Trusting God with Your Child's Faith
When our children were young we did all we could to point them to and support them in their relationship with God. We taught them daily through our time together in His Word. But as we all know, we each have to make decisions about our faith as it becomes our own. So, how do we handle this, as parents, when we don’t see them walking with God as we had hoped? Read More

Jesus Led a Prayer-Filled Life

Jesus Led a Prayer-Filled Life
Jesus knew the importance of prayer and made it a priority. He led a "prayer-filled" life.
I bet most of you are praying and trusting God with something in your life. I know I am.
Our enemy wants to keep us from prayer by keeping us busy or distracted.
Our enemy wants to discourage us with prayer by using lies such as "God has forgotten you" or "God doesn't care". Read More

Fighting for Your Marriage

Fighting for Your Marriage
In the difficult stretches of marriage, it's important for me to remember that my husband is not the enemy but we have an Enemy. Here are a few “marriage helps” I have tucked away.
We are not in a challenging stretch right now but I’m really working on the second part of #5 (connection cues).
1. There will be seasons when your feelings of love dry up. Do the acts of love despite your feelings. (Timothy Keller) Ask God to help you do one act of kindness today.

Run to the Throne and not the phone!

Run to the Throne and not the phone!
KNOWING HIM=TRUSTING HIM. It’s that simple.

If you know who He is (His character, attributes, and nature), then you know what He is capable of.

You realize His power and might and that He is in control of all things. Do we really believe that He is in control of ALL THINGS? If we do, then why would we turn to anyone or anything else first? Read More

God, Help My Husband Fulfill His Purpose

God, Help My Husband Fulfill His Purpose
Maybe your husband is stressed, unsettled or unfulfilled with his work? I get it. We have had those seasons. During those stressful seasons, I had to pray a little extra over myself so that I could remain supportive and understanding.

If your husband is unsettled or unfulfilled, I want to encourage you to keep praying for a job where your husband is fulfilled. Read More

Living in Contentment

Living in Contentment
When we moved to the desert, things were harder for longer than I anticipated and I had a season of discontentment. I had to learn how to fight for a contented heart even though my circumstances didn't change for a while.

We just moved again over the summer and there are gifts here, but there are also challenges and strugges. Read More

This post is written for the mom who has preschool/elementary school aged children. It is great to expose our children to different activities when they are younger, but if your family's schedule feels out of control... Read More

Ruth Truths

Ruth Truths
My favorite take-aways so far has been the fact that as a mother-in-law, I can have an influence on my daughter-in-laws and vice versa. Also, my prayer is that I can be a daughter-in-law that is a blessing and be a mother-in-law that blesses. Read More
