The Flu

Everyone’s heard about it.  Actually, almost everyone has had it.  The dreaded and dangerous flu that has been going around this season is no joke.  It is crippling even the healthy and even claiming lives. Scary is an understatement, especially for me.  With a 4-year-old and a 7 week old, I am frightened that they […]

The Smile Button

Psalm 118:14-16 The LORD is my strength and my defense; He has become my salvation. Shouts of joy and victory resound in the tents of the righteous: “The LORD’s right hand has done mighty things!” The LORD’s right hand is lifted high; the LORD’s right hand has done mighty things! As I read these passages […]

In God We Trust

For those of us who are military families, uncertainty is just part of life.  We often live a life of “hurry up and wait.”  Uncle Sam could knock on our doors at any time. Military families live with a lot of unknowns, yet it’s important for us not to place our faith in the government, […]

Altars of Remembrance

“For your steadfast love is before my eyes, and I walk in your faithfulness.” ??Psalms? ?26:3 I have talked before about the story in Joshua chapter 4 where God instructs Joshua and the Israelites to build an altar of remembrance near the Jordan River where God had just stopped the waters so they could all […]

Fight the Good Fight

My sons are gamers. They have played video games since they were old enough to hold remotes in their little toddler hands. I have watched them over the last 20+ years beat game after game. If you were to ask one of them how they do that, they would tell you they begin with learning […]

Make This Year Different

It’s that time of year: We are bound and determined to make a change in our lives this year. We’ve chosen our New Year’s Resolutions or chosen our One Word.  We’ve joined the local gym, stocked our fridges with fruits and veggies, and filled our water jugs.  We sync our Fitbits as we sit down […]

2018, Here We Come!

As I write this post, it is the first morning of 2018. The Lord is here with me in my little writing nook. He is showing me the blessings of 2017 as I close out my Prayer Journal. My new 2018 Prayer Journal is filled with blank pages. They wait for my pen to fill them […]

The Journey

The last 17 years of my journey with Christ has not been easy. I am a Mama to six, Mimi to three, working from home, and we are a homeschool family. It seems like I am always racing against the clock. Setting aside time daily to pray and study God’s Word is super hard but […]

Live Christmas Everyday

During the Christmas season, people for the most part are more loving, caring, and giving.  It’s like they get a glimpse of Jesus and share Him, even if it is just for a little while.   I think there is this whole innocence surrounding Christmas.  If we allow God to be seen through all the […]

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 […]
