Wilderness

I try to talk with my friends, acquaintances and colleagues about the present year. “How are you?!” “Great!” “Fine” “So good to see you!” We go through the basic rhetoric as we each mumble with a hidden smiles and squinty eyes beneath our mandatory face masks.  (Can you tell I’m trying to smile at you?)”...

Shut.Down.

In case you haven’t noticed, the entire world around us seems to be changing. Changing Rapidly. Changing in what our lives look like, changing in how we dress when we leave the house. Changing how we plan our days and how many stops we make and where we eat, and with whom we shop and... Continue Reading →

Consider the Kingdom

Ok Mama. Here we go. Here we go into the wild unknown. Into the crazy of this self-determined quarantine that feels confusing and catastrophic. God has prepared us individually for the crazy today and the wild tomorrows.  He has fully chosen you to be the mother to your children. The educator of their impressionable brains and flourisher of... Continue Reading →

Arrows

Our society writhes in constant longing for the most natural of desire forged within us. It seems that at every bend in the road, every turn of our head, every ad on our screens we are flooded with the need for companionship; telling us how necessary it is for our minds, souls and bodies to...

(The following is a contributed post written for the Pregnancy Help Center:) I sit at my desk, working from home as I hear my daughters in the distant living room. They’re bickering over tv channels and baby dolls, yelling (demanding) more snacks from our full pantry. How ungrateful it sounds to me as I find... Continue Reading →

“Raise a Hallelujah”

“And now, o Lord, for what do I wait. My Hope is in you.” Psalm 39:7 There are moments in this life that catch us beyond our own emotions. Clocks tick minute by minute as we hold our breaths and pray for the best. Seconds skipping the face of time when we realize our worst... Continue Reading →

Seasons

It’s as if the trees are teaching us this lesson. Let go of what you cannot hold, but with empty branches and empty hands open our hearts to what our Creator is preparing for us in His coming season...

Life Unfair

Life. It’s like this blank page staring back at us. Taunting us to write all of our hopes and dreams and desires all over the chapters that we compile into the story of our lives, never knowing if they’ll pan out the way we plan. Some pages in our books are filled with adventure and... Continue Reading →

When Fear Wins

Fear.  Miriam Webster’s dictionary defines it as the “concern about what may happen: worry.” I might describe fear as the emotion who’s agenda consists of attempting to consume. Fear destroys the somber peace I innately crave, and wastes no time attempting to steal the joy I know was created for me by my Maker. Fear... Continue Reading →
