The Day I Resigned from 4 Ministries to Focus on Family

By |April 23rd, 2015|

One day, as I was pulling my car over to nurse a screaming baby, I saw my other two toddlers napping in the car on the way home after having been at church for the fourth time that week for bible study, and ministry meetings. I remember feeling overwhelmed, and like, if I kept going at the pace I was, I might be sacrificing the legacy I was dreaming of–a vision God had placed in […]

My 20th Re-Birthday

By |April 4th, 2015|

A few months back, I was having a conversation with my eight year old and he asked me how long I have been a Christian.
I got a little giddy, because I love intimate conversations like these with my kids. And I shared with him, this Spring is going to be my 20th Re-Birthday! Looking confused he said, “But Mom, you’re 35, did you forget?”

“Of course not son, but when I was 15 years old, that […]

By |March 23rd, 2015|

You may have thought since our youngest is almost 5 years old, we were done, right?
Surprise!!!

One of the benefits I have never experienced before is that everyone is potty trained and SUPER helpful!
Everyone in the family is SUPER excited, as you can imagine! Actually they have all been begging for another sister or brother for a couple years now, and there are a couple who are praying for twins.
My little Megan isn’t so little anymore either, […]

You Don’t Have to be a Blogger to be My Friend

By |March 7th, 2015|

When we first moved to Central Oregon and were meeting new people, visiting churches, and having families over for fellowship to get to know them, I realized something about myself. I didn’t want them to know I was a blogger or an author. I was scared it would negatively effect the authenticity of the potential friendship. Meaning, I didn’t want people to be intimidated and I didn’t want people to be attracted to having a friendship with me […]

Advances in technology, such as cell phones, the personal computer made mobile, have further enhanced what these social networks were originally intending. The future seems clear, that these social communities are here to stay.

Upon joining some of these social networks, I quickly realized some of […]

By |February 3rd, 2015|

We all have our reasons for being on social media.  For some it may be a way to connect with family and friends that are long distance, for others it might be the social networking for business, or maybe your kids are on social media, so you feel the need to be. I share in our personal testimony below why we are on social media, but from the beginning Isaac and I set out on a mission […]

Why Women Should Read The Grand Paradox : Giveaway & Video Interview

By |January 23rd, 2015|

When I was first asked to check out Ken’s new book coming out this next week on Jan. 27th, 2015, my first thought was, I have way too many other books on my reading list that I am currently trying to get through. I’m a mom, a wife who’s husband is building a business, which means he works late… often. I don’t have time to read another book!

But then I met with Ken, we talked […]

5 Tips for the Mom Who Wants to Hide in the Closet: Does Mom NEED Alone Time?

By |January 21st, 2015|

There I was hiding in a closet with a cup of coffee and a cupcake.
Have you ever had those moments in Motherhood, or days even, when you just want to hide?
When you just want quiet time alone?

Ok, I am just going to be real raw here. Some days, even some weeks, are just hard. On these days, delighting in your moments as a mom, is simply the farthest thing from the reality you are walking in. […]
