My Story

My husband recently shared his story on his new blog, in which he shared some exciting news regarding his work and ministry! I encourage you to go read it, but I also wanted to share the same story from my vantage point. From a young age, Jesus captivated my heart with His love and I found myself identifying with Mary of Bethany, who simply desired to sit at the feet of Jesus, gaze at His face and listen to Him {Read More}

Priests in Training: Worship & Prayer

I think it’s pretty safe to say that prayer and worship are two of the most important spiritual skills that we can teach our children. I am by no means an expert on the subject and have had my fair share of bedtime fights over trying to get my kids to pray with me. But, this is exactly why I get excited about any little tools that can help me get my kids engaged in prayer and worship. I know {Read More}

Priests in Training

Photo Credit: Kristen Nicole As a mother, one of my primary purposes is to teach my children about Jesus and to “make ready a people prepared for the Lord” (Luke 1:17). I feel strongly that it is my calling to lead my children into the revelation of who Jesus is, how He feels about them, how He taught us to live, and to prepare them as best as I know how for His return to the earth. I also happen {Read More}

Naming Baby #3

I am just over 28 weeks in my pregnancy with our third child and at my 20 week ultrasound, I greatly anticipated the possibility of finding out our baby’s gender, as we had with our first two children. However, I was sent to a different hospital this time where they have a different policy about this and they would not tell me the gender at the appointment, though they would put it in the report that they sent to my {Read More}

Where Morning Dawns

“The whole earth is filled with awe at your wonders; where morning dawns, where evening fades, you call forth songs of joy.” Psalm 65:8 “Satisfy us in the morning with your unfailing love, that we may sing for joy and be glad all our days.” Psalm 90:14 For the last couple months, I have been attempting to join with the “Summer Maximize Your Mornings Challenge” (aka “Hello Mornings”) hosted by Kat at Inspired to Action, which encourages moms to get up {Read More}


There have been an abundance of New Years posts lately, many detailing their resolutions or outlooks on the upcoming year, so I suppose I will join in as well.    While I wouldn’t say I’ve made any resolutions, I have several new projects or goals that I am wanting to implement this year that I am really excited about! Prayer & Giving Joe and I enjoy giving to various causes that we are passionate about, but we realized that we {Read More}

A Home for Sanctuary House of Prayer – Part 2

Read Part 1 here… Back in Calgary a few months later and we found ourselves at a fork in the road with several different options before us.  Joe had been offered a really great job opportunity that would require us to move to a different city.  We were also being asked to help head up the leadership of a ministry by a great couple who had mentored us in prayer and intercession.  And then I think it was me who {Read More}

A Home for Sanctuary House of Prayer – Part 1

I want to share a little about our journey that has brought my husband and I to Sanctuary House of Prayer and what God is currently doing in our midst… Before I met my husband Joe, I knew nothing about the International House of Prayer (IHOP) and was simply enjoying life in Calgary, Alberta where I had been living for over four years.  I loved Jesus, was going to school for Computer Programming, volunteered part-time at my church, and figured {Read More}

Ways to Help the Haiti Earthquake Victims

Like many others, today we are both grieved by the devastation in Haiti and grateful for God’s provision in our lives as we see how much we have to be thankful for in light of so many people’s great loss.  Also, like many, we are asking “How can I help?”  First of all, we can PRAY.  Some things to pray for… Provision of food, water, shelter and aid to get to the victims. Anointing and power upon the local churches that they {Read More}
