Calm the Storm

Today I have just finished celebrating the 4th birthday of our sweet daughter. The pride and joy she brings is incomparable. While I celebrate the day she was born, it also brings back some tough memories for me because her birth brought on physical, mental, and even spiritual battles. Now, we are in the very […]

As long as there is Life there is Hope.

One of my sisters, before she went home to be with the Lord in February 2015 gave me this framed quote.  “Hope – Just as the lily brings new life.  We’ll build our lives anew.  With Hope and Trust the clouds will pass and Faith will see us through.” As we face the challenges in […]

What Can I Pray For?

The adoption process has been just like I imagined…in only one way: we are waiting for a baby.  Other than that, the paperwork grew beyond my expectations quickly in extent and content, the support and encouragement from friends, family, and even strangers has exceeded our imaginations, and the emotions and prayers my husband and I […]

Is God Good ALL The Time?

I recently received some good news from our doctor about our current pregnancy that was quite the opposite of what the doctor had told us just 2 weeks prior.  The news clearly revealed God’s hand in performing a miraculous work.  Even the doctor was scratching his head at the findings. Because we are sharing our […]

I just want to encourage you! As I think about the devastation of Harvey in Texas and Louisiana and beyond and with so much going on in our lives; sometimes we have to encourage ourselves. I have included scriptures in this post to help keep you encouraged.  Know that you are not alone and God […]

Waiting on the Lord

A baby! I can’t believe we’re having a baby! This little surprise came to us right in the middle of moving homes and jobs! The Lord’s timing is impeccable, that’s for sure! Although He has chosen to bless us with this little one at this exact moment does not mean that we didn’t do some […]

Who is God?

In my small group today we were talking about different attributes of God.  How do I see God and who is He to me?  In the Old Testament, the Israelites only referred to God by his characteristics… Yaweh-Lord Jehovah Jireh-Provider Elohim-Creator ….And so many more. Our group mentioned traits like God is love, just, faithful, […]

The God of Safety

“In peace I will both lie down and sleep, For You alone, O LORD, make me to dwell in safety.” Psalms 4:8 NASB Two weeks ago, my husband and I moved to a new state. We are not too far from our families, but we are farther than we have ever been. The idea of […]

A Double Blessing

On Mother’s Day, our family was excited to announce to our church family that we were being obedient to God’s calling on our life as we moved to bring a baby home through adoption. The support we received from everyone humbled us but gave us strength in our new journey. The very next day, I […]
