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 […]

Pack Light

In the next month, I have the privilege of flying to Las Vegas, Orlando and Puerta Vallarta.  Being the OCD-list maker-packing professional that I am, I have already begun my list of what I will need to pack.  I will be going the carry-on route for these trips, so I am trying to pack as […]

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 […]

Be Encouraged

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 […]

Voices

This past weekend, my husband and I went to see The Dark Tower.  It was one of his favorite movie genres – sci fi/fantasy.  A basic story about good vs. evil.  Since my husband and I are both really aware of sermon illustrations when we go to the movie, it didn’t take long for one […]

Overwhelmed

“‘Cause Your love is overwhelming/Your love is overwhelming…I’m livin’ in awe/’Cause You don’t need me at all/But You couldn’t love me more…I’m livin’ in awe/And every day I fall/But You never let me go…” ~ Awe by Hollyn Are you ever overwhelmed by the sheer majesty of our Heavenly Father? Sometimes I find myself thinking, Lord, You […]

Happily Ever After

As girls, we all dream of being the princess with the Happily Ever After story.  We read books or watch movies that leave us looking forward to our future happiness. For many of us, the dream of happily ever after may seem like an impossibility.  We encounter The Enemy and our world is rocked.  Sometimes, […]

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, […]

Faith or Stress?

June 2nd, I lost my job! Without question or doubt, I KNOW God gave me the job. I saw him pave the way for me to have the position. In my mind, it was to serve as a means to an end of using the gifts He gave me. His ways are not our ways. […]

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 […]
