Do You Know Who You Belong To?

“But to all who did receive [Jesus], He gave them the right to be children of God, to those who believe in His name, who were born, not of blood, or of the will of the flesh, or of the will of man, but of God” (John 1: 12-13, HCSB). Those who try to find their identity in what they […]

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. The “to-do” list in my mind was […]

Special Delivery Part 2: My Birth Story

I wrote about my birthing experiencing with my son, Isaiah, just two weeks after he was born. He wasn’t a great sleeper (and almost 3.5 years later, we occasionally have our issues…Lord, thank You for Your grace!), so I found myself awake all through the night…a lot. I must have had trouble falling back asleep […]

Holding Onto Hope

“Hold onto hope!” were some of the last few words I wrote in my journal as I reflected over my current circumstances. I had no idea how much the word “hope” would become even more tangible to me as it has bubbled up inside of me these last few weeks while Paul and I have […]

Aggressive Expectation: Preparing for 2017

Photo courtesy: J&H Creative I don’t know about you, but I am a list-maker. I have always been ever since I learned to write, I think. There is just something about writing down your thoughts that helps relieve tension in ways that I simply cannot fully explain. Obviously, says the writer. The list-making goes hand-in-hand […]

Max Lucado’s GLORY DAYS- A Review

As an avid reader and writer, you’d think I would never attempt to judge a book by its cover. Although Max Lucado’s newest release, Glory Days, is a lovely hard-back book with a very simple, yet bold appearance, I have to be honest, when I read the sub-title, I was already imagining what I was in for […]

Longing for Truth, the WHOLE Truth!

Today, I’m simply here to just write. Vent, I guess you could say… …gracefully vent. *Sigh* I’m going through something right now. Actually, my husband and I are both going through something right now. God promised that He would be doing a deep work in me in this current season, but I didn’t know it […]

Healing Touch: How God Used Co-Sleeping in My Recovery from PPD

“We are looking for a good, organic crib mattress for the baby. What brand do you use?” I asked a coworker with four children who was very knowledgeable in crunchy momma ways. “Oh, we don’t have a crib. We co-sleep.” I valued her opinion because I wanted to pursue as many natural alternatives (how God intended it […]
