She is usually the go-with-the-flow child. The comfortable in most situations child. But when Olivia gets uncomfortable she comes and sits next to me. She will then tell anyone who tries to play with her that she just wants to sit by her mom. This year we put her in camp, and usually, she likes [...]
What should you fear? I could easily make a list of 100 things I "should" fear off the top of my head. And if you haven't been living under a rock, and have been on social media a lot (or at all), you can too. Fear. It is a prominent emotion right now. Scripture talks [...]
I was surprised to find recently how much fear of God is in the world. A few months ago I was talking to a young boy. He was telling me that a lot of kids were scared in his Sunday school class. So, I asked him why and he said that they were scared of [...]
So what is your biggest fear? I am talking about one of my in my newest post for Candidly Christian! I openly share about something that quickly makes me break into tears... You can go ahead and laugh at me, or with me, or acknowledge that you feel the same way. But my hope is [...]
I just wanted to break into tears, watching as our governor gave an update on the state of how schools will be opening in the Fall. I want my children to go back to school, it has been hard for them to be away from their structure, and friends. But I have a really hard [...]

Yes, I am writing about it. The coronavirus. It is one of the big things taking up the spot light in the news. As I write this, there was one confirmed case of the virus at our local hospital, and there have been actions taken to prepare the school system in our town to close for 2 weeks. That is a decision that will probably come in a couple days the latest, but I am guessing they are waiting to see if this thing is going to spread in our town before making a firm decision.
As I watch the news, and see what is being posted on social media, it can be really easy to fall into fear about this thing, and I know that so many people are.
But before you read more, I want you to consider who
or what you go to as your source of truth?
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 [...]
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 [...]
