Worry Mode

Worry Mode
If I am not careful, I can get stuck in "worry mode" all day long. When you have 6 people under one roof, there is always something to worry about. Currently, I am trying to manage my anxiety regarding some upcoming changes for our family this year. So how do I manage my tendency to worry or be anxious? Read More

To Love Like Christ

To Love Like Christ
Sometimes it can be difficult to express love to others. I’m talking about people we have to interact with even though at times, we would rather not. And let’s be honest here, for some that would be extended family, co-workers, people in the church, or at times, family inside your home. It’s just hard sometimes-because of weariness, a conflict or they might have a personality that is similar to sandpaper. 😉 Read More

React Less, Respond More
I have four boys and I never know what my day will look like....

Keeping God a Priority

Keeping God a Priority
Last fall I found myself struggling to keep God as my priority. I didn’t have the passion of pursuit that I wanted and needed. When this happens, and it does more often than I would like, then I have to be very intentional to turn things around. Because of this I have found that there are steps I can take to help get me back on track. Maybe these will be helpful to you as well: Read More

Praying for Our Husbands Spiritual Growth

Praying for Our Husbands Spiritual Growth
When we were young marrieds, my husband was not the spiritual leader of our home. I started praying for the Lord to provide godly friends for my husband and a godly mentor. I was picturing a mentor that he could have coffee with every Friday morning, but the Lord exceeded my expectations. Read More

5 Years Tumor Free

5 Years Tumor Free
Today we are celebrating our “Tumor free, 5 year anniversary”. It kind of has a ring to it, doesn’t it? Five years ago today, I was released from prison—an emotional, mental & physical cell that was not seen, yet, held me captive for years. It was an emotional and mental hell of sorts. It is incredible to comprehend how something so small (adenoma on my pituitary gland) can cause such devastation to a person’s entire being. Read More

Sticky Notes for A Child's Heart Vol. 2
My four boys are ages 18,15, 13, and 11. Our lives are busy and I wanted to find a way to remind them about God. So each week, I simply write a truth on a sticky note or note card and place it by their bedside. Some of my friends have displayed these truths on chalkboards in their kitchens or launching areas.
