For a Moment (a Letter to Grandpa)

On September 26, 2019 I heard the news I had dreaded: my sweet grandpa had passed away. My heart was broken. All I had wanted was one more moment, one more hug, one more time to hear him call me his sugar like he always did. Even though I had been up to see him…

Our Journey to Freedom

WE’RE DEBT FREE!!!!! Words we have been longing to say for three and a half years now. Words that right now are our future, but will very soon be part of our present. You see, something happened almost four years ago to wake us up and make us see that we were living beyond our…

Devotional: He Will Fight For You (Ex. 14)

As I continue to listen through the Bible, I came across a verse in Exodus Last month that really stood out to me. “But Moses told the people, ‘Don’t be afraid. Just stand still and watch the Lord rescue you today. The Egyptians you see today will never be seen again. The Lord himself will…

Devotional: By the Brook

On Sunday our church had the opportunity to hear God’s Word from John Stroup, one of the founders of Freeway Ministries, a ministry out of Springfield (and Crossway Baptist Church) that ministers to criminals, drug addicts, and people that most would turn away. He preached a message I know well and hold dear to my…

Devotional: A New Beginning

Well, I’ve already blogged in 2019 almost as much as I did throughout 2018. This year I plan on posting a lot more through my blog and my YouTube channel. I plan on writing more devotionals than anything else and hope to go a little deeper with videos as I study through the Word, so…

A New Year: A Time of Hope

Here we are. That time of year again when you can’t help but look back at all of the experiences, trials, turning points, moments, and memories of the previous year. As you reflect back, you either look into the next year with anticipation and hope, set personal goals based on the struggles and disappoints of…

Vlogging!!!

Good morning! I wanted to share a few things with you. In an attempt to “write” more often and use my page as a place where we can grow together, I am trying something new! I will be doing a little vlogging as well as blogging! My hopes is to pair my writing with videos…

Everything Times 3

3 kids… I still can’t wrap my brain around being a mom of 3. I know that sounds silly; my husband came from of family of 5 brothers. 5 was their “magic number.” His Mom was from a family of 5, and his dad was from a family of 5, and then they had 5….

Silence

Silence. That word brings so many things to mind. So many memories. So many fears. So many times when all I can do is sit in the deafening silence and wonder…are you there, God? If I listen loud enough can I hear your still, small voice…your whisper? Are you working even when I can’t see…

I am a Mom

I am a mom. I am a 35 year old mom who has two beautiful children. My daughter, who just turned 10, and my son, who will be seven in a week, are my pride and joy. I am not a mom who has experienced a perfect birth. Maybe because my children are stubborn! I…
