People have often told me that I have a great memory. I can remember some things others can't. Like the fact that when we were kids, my grandmother's friend Norma, used to stab us with safety pins when we didn't listen. I remember hiding behind the bed one day, because I knew she was going … Continue reading The Things I Forget To Remember
Do you have a favorite book of the Bible? I am not sure that I can hand pick just one book, but Ruth is at the top of my list of favorites. And today I am back on Candidly Christian sharing about Anna and Elsa from Frozen, and what I have been learning from Ruth and Naomi the past few months.
So this morning after church, we went to pick up my husbands car at his parent's house. Apparently over night, a few cars in the neighborhood got things stolen from them. And our car got our check book stolen from it. Not really a huge deal, but really annoying because it is my birthday, and … Continue reading Fight Like A…
What is your biggest weakness? Or maybe your greatest seeming failure, or unconfessed sin right now. Name it. I can tell you my most dreaded one. I won’t, but I will tell you that it is the weakness that is pointed out to me the most, the weakness that I have come the farthest in, and the weakness that I have the farthest to grow in. This is the weakness that brought me to a sobbing mess last week, because I couldn’t handle the weight of the burden that this had become.

What is the one thing that you wouldn't want to sacrifice if God asked you? You family? Your house? Your job? What is your most love thing? Name it. I could name a few, and one of them I had to lay down this week.
Have you ever heard the line that girls are easier to potty train than boys? Who ever said that was definitely speaking something not true (at least in my household). Because my son was a breeze to potty train, and my daughter could care less. She is almost 3 and we have been working on potty training all summer to get her ready for school. She doesn't care, and she isn't phased by rewards... like the Anna and Elsa doll she wanted... that is until we told her that she couldn't get it until she went potty. And she kind of lost interest. (side note: I actually ended up giving her the dolls a few weeks later, because I mean, she is cute, and she adores them) Yeah, girls being easier than boys is a myth in my house. And while we are on the topic of myths, I wanted to address a spiritual myth that I have come across over the years. That God won't give us more than we can handle.
There was water everywhere. It was a flood. Not the flood where there is a few inches of water in the basement, but a Noah type flood. The type of flood that destroys everything. Water covered everything in sight. And I was struggling to keep my head above water. But then a large man, probably … Continue reading What Promise Holds In The Storm
What does it really mean to "be still, and know He is God"? I used to think that the verse meant to spend time with God, read my Bible, and write in my prayer journal. And those are all good things, and I am not saying those things are not important, because they are vital! So, please keep reading your Bible, keep praying, keep finding those quiet times with God. I want to take this a step further though, because lots of people read their Bible, pray, and don't really know God.
A few months ago I took a trip to Texas. For those of you who don't know, I have a fear of flying. I fly a couple times a year, and it doesn't get easier. Before I left for the airport the day of my trip, I put on make-up, curled my hair, put on … Continue reading Let’s Put On Some Confidence
