Just Keep Breathing

It’s Sunday morning. And I am at home. I would normally be at church right now with my family, but my (very fussy, teething who is obsessed with comfort-nursing) 7 month old is fighting a cold. Considering we just faced this last week with our 3 year old who is majorly sensitive to pain or […]

I laid on the cold, sterile exam table feeling uneasy from the moment I parked my car. I thought, “Paul and I were just here 2 weeks ago. We got to hear the baby’s heartbeat for the first time and got pictures to show our family. Why did the doctor need to see me again for […]

GOD FRIENDED ME- Coming to CBS this Fall!

I was feeling somewhat frazzled today. These last few weeks have been a whirlwind to say the least. A tragedy hit our family like a freight-train at the beginning of July (I will share more about that soon), and I honestly cannot believe next week is already August.

10 Lessons the Parable of the Prodigal Son Has for Us- iBelieve.com Post

I hadn’t stepped foot in a church in well over three years, no thanks to the distractions, temptations, and stresses of college life that seemed to capture my heart and attention. But I had just graduated a couple months prior, and I could not take the guilt and shame looming over me one more day. […]

Refiner’s Fire- A Poem

REFINER’S FIRE Refine me like gold. Purify me until I shine like the Son. Purge my heart of all that does not belong…all that doesn’t look like You. Take me through the fire and consume me with Your love. Refine me like gold. Gold is a symbol of Your divine character. When I am refined […]

From Brokenness to Restoration

being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ (Philippians 1:6 NKJV). The work God has done in my heart can definitely be described as one big (de)construction project- from tearing down walls that were erected from what I […]
