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 […]

What God Has Taught Me Through the Seasons Where I Felt “Stuck”-iBelieve Post

  “Hi, my name is Emily, and I am recovering from an addiction to do-ing.” It took me many years to finally admit that. If there was a goal or task to accomplish, I would throw all of myself into successfully completing it. I still have great work ethic, but the problem was the fact […]

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 […]

Empowering Grace

“Hi, my name is Emily, and I am a recovering perfectionist.” It took me many years to finally admit that. If there was a goal or task to accomplish, I would throw all of myself into successfully completing it. I still have great work ethic, but the problem was the fact that I was too concerned […]

Kayla Aimee’s ANCHORED- A Review

  I spent the course of a few days reading Kayla Aimee’s book, Anchored: Finding Hope in the Unexpected fighting back tears and almost choking on my food. That type of combination of great sorrow and tongue-and-cheek humor kept my eyes glued to the pages as she described countless stories of her life wrapped up in […]

Jesus Loves Me- A Review

My one-year-old’s bookshelf is stocked with countless books: Toy Story, Thomas the Tank Engine, VeggieTales… He definitely loves to look at all the pictures, and I love the idea of reading to your children, even early on in their life. But the problem is he can’t sit still long enough for me to read them […]
