Today I am doing something a little different on the blog, and sharing a video testimony/encouragement about a dream Olivia had during naptime yesterday. Take a watch, as this dream comes straight from the heart of God, and teaches us about the faith of a child.
Today I am sharing about Easter outfits, the hope of Easter, yet the reality we are all facing... and the one thing Jesus never asks us to do.
This is the story of how I ruined Valentine's Day, and my husbands's birthday weekend this year.
Sometimes I think I am crazy. And today is one of those days. My husband is two rows up from me on a flight down to Florida, and if I told him that I wasn’t going to take my anxiety medicine to help me to be calm on the flight, he would have definitely said … Continue reading Let Us Be
Waiting rooms are the worst. They have the unique ability to actively suck the life out of you even though you are doing nothing but sitting and waiting. The TV options are usually limited and mindless. And if you must go to the DMV, you feel as if you will never escape the dull confines … Continue reading The Waiting Room
I said in Friday's blog that I wasn't really into the Christmas season this year. The things that I have usually enjoyed doing, haven't brought the enjoyment that it usually has. I am usually the one who likes Christmas movies (the Hallmark, and Lifetime ones...go ahead make fun of me), the ribbons, bows, etc. And … Continue reading The Story of the Deer: The Heart of Christmas
Have you ever felt like you are existing and not really living? Are there parts of your life that feel dead? Is your grave fear, insecurity, or disbelief? There is one answer.
If you could name the season in life, in regards to your faith, that you are in, what would you name it? Think about that for a second, before reading on. Would you name it faith? Fear? Disbelief? Disobedience? Surrender? Name it... And then read this week's blog!
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…
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.
