That Moment in Motherhood When You Realize Your Sin

Sometimes being a mom is just hard. Sunday afternoon was one of those times. Our family was planning on going to the movie theater to see a cool new family flick in celebration of Father's Day. And one of my precious children was caught in the action of losing self-control of one of his appendages, actually punching a sibling in the head. Now before I continue to tell you my story from Sunday, I have [...]

Transform Surfacy Friendships and Kill Hidden Loneliness

Have you ever been in a season where you just felt alone? You may have four kids, a thriving marriage, but when it comes to female friendships, something is just holding you back from experiencing what your heart desires! Maybe you have a lot of friends, but deep down inside you are spread so thin among them all, that you don't have the time required to truly get to know someone and develop the kind of kindred sister friendship [...]

The Day I Resigned from 4 Ministries to Focus on Family

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

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 [...]

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

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 [...]

How to Equip Your Children for Social Media Biblically
