My Word for 2017: Trust

It’s been a VERY long time since I have written on this blog, but I felt that it was time for me to write something, even if it’s just to get me back into writing. I didn’t know what to write about, but I thought that sharing about my word for 2017 was a good place to start in this new year. This is our fourth year as a family, prayerfully each choosing a word for the year ahead that {Read More}

Book Review: You’re Made for a God-Sized Dream by Holley Gerth

You may recall the review I wrote of Holley Gerth’s book “You’re Already Amazing“, which is a great book for discovering who God created you to be and the strengths and gifts He’s given you. Her next book, “You’re Made for a God-Sized Dream” is a fantastic follow-up that takes things a step further (though it can definitely be read independently) and I am so glad I got the opportunity to review this one for you as well! Here’s what {Read More}

The Scoffing Spirit

First of all, you must understand that in the last days scoffers will come, scoffing and following their own evil desires. They will say, “Where is this ‘coming’ he promised? Ever since our fathers died, everything goes on as it has since the beginning of creation”…But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.

Outstanding Among Ten Thousand

For a rather vulnerable glimpse into my life, lately I have been thinking a lot about being pregnant and wishing I had a life in the process of creation within me. This is in part due to the dozens of pregnant women and new mothers around me. I also think it is because Joe & I have been married now for a year and I am actually in a position where having a baby is not completely out of the {Read More}
