You Are Not Alone

I cooked in a dutch oven Sunday night. I’m just now getting around to soaking it to hand wash it. 🤷🏻‍♀️ I may not always keep up with the dishes, but my family is always fed even if it’s a bowl of cereal. I may not always keep up with the laundry but my family always...

Your Heart is a House

Your Heart is a House. Like a house, your mind and heart have rooms: There is the living room, bedroom, guest rooms. Etc. Know who is in each of your rooms. God should be in the main living room. He should be the center of everything and be seen at all times. Your...

The Day After Christmas

I don’t know about you, but on the day after Christmas I suddenly felt that all the colorful decorations which I poured sweat for, looks a little bit too noisy and too busy now — I can’t wait to take them all down. And with that, a cloud of sadness came over me. It’s...

The Counterfeit Happiness

Christmas is right around the corner, so we checked the children’s toys to make room for new goodies. And for heaven’s sake, we discovered that half of their birthday gifts from six months ago are still in the box! And they are nice toys like lego sets, etc, which we...

December Note to Myself-and Anyone Who Can Relate

Take time to reflect on your day. It’s so easy to subconsciously numb out to the raw inescapable realities of life. Recall the anxieties that weighed you down. Were you able to surrender them and overcome them or is there still work needed to be done there? Reflect on...

When We Roll With the Punches as a Family

Every year,a family friend will graciously invite my little family to her house for thanksgiving. We rarely see them during the year, so it’s always a good time to catch up and enjoy a great holiday meal. This year, however, my kids caught a cold right before the...

The Story About A Can of Silly String

I’m riding the struggle bus the last several days. I won’t bore you with the variety of reasons why. Suffice to say this is a tough season. And I feel delicate.  Some days are better than others. Some moments are better than others. But overall, I feel weak. Kind of...

His Mercy is New Everyday

I don’t know what you are facing today, friend, but I know one thing for sure: the devil is like a roaming lion looking someone to destroy.  He knows our weaknesses, our insecurities, and our anxieties. And he likes to whisper in our ears when we are most vulnerable. ...
