  • I picked one of my teen daughters up this morning from a friend’s house to go work at her older sister’s for the day. Job description: babysit and do chores. She began to kind of whine about all of her friends going to the river today and that she had to go to work to earn money. From there it turned into wanting to get her nails done, to her hair done, to getting a car so that she could drive herself around….and on and on.

    One evening my husband and I were going through our monthly budget/spending and something stood out to me. We were spending about $185 on TV…A MONTH! Was what I was watching worth what I was paying for it? Would I even notice if I didn’t get ALL the channels? I was willing to find out.

  • The day before had been one of the best in recent memory with my kids. But there we were the following morning, barely even daybreak, and it was already shaping up to be one of those days that you’re just counting down the minutes until bedtime. How could things change so drastically overnight? The truth is, they didn’t. None of this was new. All of it was familiar. But still, the day was evoking emotions of incredible frustration within the depths of my soul, and all I could think was, Why is this already shaping up to be such a hard day? And the answer came back softly.

  • Life opens up more knots than it seems to untangle. Have you been there? Trusting God is about surrendering ourselves even when we are most vulnerable. The question is - can we trust Him to give us rest?

  • How A Little Planning Can Make Your Life Easier
    Recently I chatted with a dear friend of mine about how much responsibility we carry as Moms, when it comes to the atmosphere in our homes.

  • When our first child was born, we learned that she had Down syndrome. We entered a period of what I have taken to calling “dramatic hard stuff,” a time of emotional and spiritual transformation that began with a fair amount of pain and grief, fear and anger. So when I gave birth to our second and third children, and they did not receive any dramatic diagnoses, I expected an easy period of infancy and toddlerhood. I was wrong.
