Refreshed in Spirit

Some nights, probably more than I would care to admit, I am exhausted & discouraged. I may not have gotten anything done that I wanted to and yet I feel the pressure to run myself ragged in order to accomplish more. My spirit is depleted, not refreshed.

Speaking Grace

Many times we – moms who stay home with the kids all day, doing the same routine and events every day – think we have no impact or significance in anyone else’s life. We wonder how we can impart grace into others’ lives while we balance the duties of child-rearing, home, and ministry efforts.

Finding Joy in Every Season

Life is full of many changes. As a child, I remember feeling like I would never “grow up”. I would never be in the youth group. It would be forever before I could drive and school was never going to end.

To the Mom Who’s Still in Her Pajamas…

You are not alone.

You probably even forgot you were still wearing them. You woke up in a rush when you heard the baby crying. Once again, you set the alarm, hoping to spend some time in prayer and preparing for the day ahead but when the alarm went off, you wiped the drool […]

Christmas felt like it came and went last year. My oldest was 4 the middle was 2 and my new baby boy was only 5 months old. We moved 2 weeks before to Louisiana from Austin, Texas. With the move it was just too much to try to put up a tree or decorate […]
