Are You Even Listening, God?


Have you asked this question? Have you been in that place of desperation where you are crying out to God for guidance, a sign, a change or simply an answer?

My guess is you have.

This summer has been just that for my husband and I. We have had some life changing circumstances […]

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.

Prayers of Honesty

I had just left my sister-in-law’s house and was driving home thinking about the encouraging and godly conversation we had during Girls’ Night. As my thoughts drifted, I began thinking of another family situation which has been a difficult one.

See Mom Run

I have been running a lot lately…

No, not the kind of running that wins you a medal. Not the kind of running that fulfills your New Years goals!

I have been running away a lot.

When life gets to be a little too much, I run. I run straight to my room or […]

The Rewards of Toil {Guest Post}

Cresting over the ridge brought the most wonderful scene. Before me lay a vast meadow dotted with every color of the rainbow, the open space was bordered by both coniferous and deciduous trees – the panorama caused me to catch my breath and silently praise God for this quiet moment of perfection.It is moments […]

Would You Stay With “Every Reason To Leave”?


When I received the request to review this book called “Every Reason To Leave” I looked forward to helping other marriages with an honest assessment of the book but I never imagined I would learn so much for myself! *{Don’t miss the book giveaway at the end of this post!}*

As I’ve stated […]

Rescued From the Darkness: A Journey Through Postpartum Depression


When I married into the Stone family, I gained a beautiful little sister. Loren has always had a special place in my heart and an even deeper place in my husband’s heart. She is the baby and he is the oldest of the brothers so I am sure you can understand how priceless she […]
