Hey friends! We’re back from camp, I’m exhausted but ready to hit this fall with renewed energy (once I sleep for like 4 straight days… oh wait, I’m a mom…) I cannot wait to write about all God taught me this summer. I hope your summer was full[…]

I am so pleased and blessed to bring Helicopter Mom to you this week! What an honor it has been for me to write this word and get it out to everyone. I encourage you to pick up a copy and pass it around. You can buy signed[…]

I’m in the middle of a series writing over Matthew 14 where Jesus feeds the crowd of 5000 with only 5 loaves of bread and 2 fish. I have a second and third discussion planned, but the last 2 days I’ve been reminded, sometimes hourly, of a really[…]
