This particular article has been one in the making in my head for about 6 months now. It’s been close to my heart to write but I didn’t know when the appropriate time to post it would be. It would seem that I can’t keep my thoughts silent[…]

Our house has a weekly “sleepover” where my two boys and I get to go to sleep in the “big bed” together. It’s a fun night that we all look forward to, filled with wriggles, giggles, reading, singing, and various episodes of borderline insanity that may (and more[…]

After much delay, I bring you the finale to the Are You Feeding the 5000? series. This is part 3 and will be relatively shorter. We’ve been talking about when Jesus fed the 5000 (or more like 10-15,ooo!) people on the hillside with 5 loaves of bread and[…]

This last week has been hard. I mean HARD! No, nobody died, I didn’t lose any limbs, the house did not burn down, and all our pets and houseplants are still alive… and  yet, I feel like I’ve been beaten on the inside with a baseball bat. I[…]

Holidays are hard and wonderful all at the same time. The Christmas season is perhaps the pinnacle of possibilities for stress and (un-needed?) hustle and bustle. It’s amazing how God will use this time to knock us between the eyes sometimes. You know, those spiritual 2x4s I love[…]
