Choose to Celebrate

Today is my 40th birthday.  Let me be honest: I’ve thought a lot about this day and the number 40. I know women who’ve stressed out and flipped out over turning 40 years old.  I’ve seen women go through their midlife crisis by purchasing sports cars and a younger, hipper wardrobe.  But as I think […]

Roosters and Redemption

Recently, I had a conversation with my sons about what it means to deny Jesus.  My 11-year-old told my youngest the story of Peter denying Jesus the night Jesus was arrested in the Garden of Gethsemane.  I think that is the image we think of: to deny Jesus means we blatantly say we don’t know […]

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 […]

We Never Know What The Wait Could Mean

Going to the doctor is never fun and is usually met with some degree of waiting. Most of us are horrible at waiting. We get antsy and easily frustrated in the wait. We carry around smart phones in our pockets to fill every void second with some type of stimulation that allows us to feel […]

Not on Bread Alone

My plate was piled high with a heap of rice and beans adorned with a plump chicken leg on top. This was a meal I actually like just fine though not my usual. I’m a pretty healthy eater, but on this day I wasn’t sure I’d be able to hold the entire amount of food […]
