Have you ever thought to yourself "The enemy is too close today."? That happened last week. It was already a heavy week, when I got the text that left me thinking was the enemy got too close. That wasn't the last time it happened last week either. I felt weak. And I had a emotional mix [...]
Have I ever told you the story about our wedding cake? It's a good one. Like really good. When looking for someone to do our wedding cake, we ended up going with a customer at the store I worked at. She was a fairly new customer, and one day she was showing me all of [...]
Does anyone like FaceBook memories? Today I was reminded of a few significant events over the past 9 years, and 11 months. And today, I'm remembering God is God. He is good, and He is faithful. But 9 years and 11 months, that is how long I have been in my 30's. The day I [...]
So this is not a pony tale, or a story about a horse. But the story is kind of hilarious, as I couldn't stop laughing when I told my husband about it for the first time last night. I actually don't think I think I finished the story, so he will hear the end of [...]

Barbie had everything she could ever want. A wardrobe that would fit any occasion, from work to play, from beaches to weddings. She always had a smile on her face. A beautiful dream house that was never messy, and it never fell apart. In Barbie's dream house there was no room for hardship, or anything that wasn't happy.
Barbie never looked in the mirror, and didn't like what she saw. She wasn't insecure, and didn't have confidence issues. She never felt like she wasn't enough.
By faith Abraham, when God tested him, offered Isaac as a sacrifice. He who had embraced the promises was about to sacrifice his one and only son, even though God had said to him, “It is through Isaac that your offspring will be reckoned.” Abraham reasoned that God could even raise the dead, and so [...]
Do any of you pray for a "word" for the year? I didn't until a couple of years ago, and my word for 2018 was "behold". Behold is a word that shows up a lot in scripture, with a few different words in the original text. But it always carries similar meaning. It is spoken [...]
Have you ever lost anything? Your keys, your phone? This week I lost my debit card. I thought it was gone. I retraced my steps from my walk at the park, and I couldn't find it. I ended up getting it back after a nice person returned it to the store I had been in [...]
