Connecting with Our Families

Connecting with Our Families
Last year, my son was a senior and he came home at 12:30 each day. I scheduled my day so that I could have lunch with him before he got busy with homework and activities. Some people might have thought I was silly and some days my son probably thought to himself "oh, brother". Ha! However, I am so thankful I had that time with him because now he's at college 15 hours away. Read More

For the Weary Mom

For the Weary Mom
Maybe you are weary because of the never ending tasks.
Maybe you are weary because your child is struggling.
Maybe you are weary because your child is difficult to parent. Read More

Abiding in Christ

Abiding in Christ
Many of us are familiar with the "love chapter" in the Bible. The truth is we can't love like this unless we are abiding in Christ. We need God's constant help to love others well. Here are a few prayers we can whisper throughout our day... Read More

Obedience in the Small Things

Obedience in the Small Things
Whatever God calls us to do He will equip us to do. And though a small gesture may not seem like much, we never know what God is doing behind the scenes in a person’s life or in someone’s (or our own) circumstances.

Praying for Our Children

Praying for Our Children
Maybe your child is struggling? I'm so sorry. Currently, I am trying to support and pray a couple of my children through some struggles.
It's hard to see our children struggle. We want to fix it. We want to make it go away. We want God to hurry.
When I am praying a child through a struggle, it helps me to remember the following about God. Read More

Praying Over Yourself

Praying Over Yourself
This is a prayer that I whisper often. In other words, I keep it on repeat throughout the day; when I wake in the morning, before I pick the boys up from school, and in the midst of crazy homework.

My days are full and sometimes hectic and if I am not careful I can get a little grouchy or irritable with my people. And there are times when I can react more than I would like. This prayer helps me to stay in responder mode.

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.
