Reflections on Motherhood & Fertility

This is just a sentimental, reflective type of post… just my random thoughts on my journey of motherhood at this point.  This morning I woke up with our newborn and was able to spend alone time (LOL if that counts as, “alone,” when theres a little one attached to you!) with God, reading His Word. Continue reading “Reflections on Motherhood & Fertility”

Things I Want My Daughter to Know: Resilience is Beautiful

This part of your book has taken about a year to write.  A large part of that is due to my feeling completely and utterly ill-equipped at times to write with any authority on resilience. So this is something you can know that at this point in time, when you were two years old, IContinue reading “Things I Want My Daughter to Know: Resilience is Beautiful”

Things I Want My Daughter to Know: You Were Prophesied Over As an Infant

Back almost 8 years ago, when we had our first child, we knew immediately we wanted to do a special Baby Blessing that our church offers.  It was so wonderful and so touching to bring our 2 week old baby to be blessed and prayed over in front of the church and with all theContinue reading “Things I Want My Daughter to Know: You Were Prophesied Over As an Infant”

“She makes linen garments and sells them, and supplies sashes for the merchants.” Proverbs 31:24 Welcome back if you’re still following this series of posts about the Proverbs 31 woman!  It’s been a lonnng time since the last post, but it’s been good for me to take a break in order to fully process allContinue reading “The Proverbs 31 Woman’s Stewardship of Her Talents”

Undaunted Radiance!

Paul says this is the reason we are more than conquerers in all these things, super-victors, with a joy we would not have, but for the very thing which look as if they are going to overwhelm us. The surf that distresses the ordinary swimmer produces in the surf-rider the super-joy of going clean throughContinue reading “Undaunted Radiance!”

Great Christians Intentionally do Great Things

I’ve had a chance to listen to a few sermons from Chip Ingram, a man I used to listen to on my morning drive to work everyday in the car – boy do I ever miss the way he’d show me God’s character in such depth!  Listening to his voice is like hearing an oldContinue reading “Great Christians Intentionally do Great Things”

Watching Plants Grow

I don’t know about you, but sometimes I feel like in my spiritual life, I’m just watching plants grow.  I want so badly to do the right thing, to be what God wants me to be, but it amazes me how far off I feel I constantly wander off. The exciting thing about a newContinue reading “Watching Plants Grow”

When You Doubt that God Can Use You

Like I’ve written before, this past few months and year has been quite a spiritual journey for me.  I’ve been faced with many lessons, many of my own faults and shortcomings, and with concrete truths that I had started doubting about God and what He can do. One of things that was brought up wasContinue reading “When You Doubt that God Can Use You”

Grow Where Planted

Almost 8 1/2 years ago, my husband and I were church hopping – just having fun really, exploring about 4-5 different churches in our city, once we were engaged and planning our wedding, my husband chose what would come to be our home church.  It’s been one of the best decisions we’ve made, and I’mContinue reading “Grow Where Planted”
