Praying for Your Child's Future Mate

Praying for Your Child's Future Mate
I’m not sure how much I actually prayed about finding a mate when I was in college. Lucky for me, my husband and his mom were consistently praying for God to provide a mate. Ben and I “just happened” to be in the same psychology class. And well, the rest is history. Read More

Do you have a mentor?

Do you have a mentor?
I lost my mom at the age of 15 so when I became a mom, I really tried to read every book I could get my hands on. And I remember taking my pen and paper to interview a friend that was a few years ahead of me a bit. (Gena Sego do you remember this? Ha!) I literally asked her “How do you discipline? What do you do for chores? What about allowance?”. She was so gracious to answer my questions. Read More

Turn Worries Into Prayers

Turn Worries Into Prayers
I know without a doubt that I have a tendency to worry. I have a list of worries concerning my family and I am sure many of you do too. When I start rehearsing my worries over and over or when I start dwelling on the “what-ifs”, I need to make a shift. I need to shift from worry mode to prayer mode. Read More

Our Kids' Friendships

Our Kids' Friendships
We moved in July and I am reminding the boys to be discerning with new friendships because they are vulnerable. And we have learned the hard way that we also have to be careful with friendships in the church. Youth in the church can be heading down a path of compromise as well. You can just never be too careful. That’s why it’s so very important for us to cover this in prayer. Read More
