Monthly Mission: Pray for LIFE

I had hoped to have this post up earlier, but we are still trying to recover and catch up with life after being on a road trip for over 2 weeks with our three young kiddos, so things are taking a little longer to get done. I’ve talked about my friend Amanda at ohamanda.com several times before, as she is the writer of the fantastic eBook “Truth in the Tinsel“. Recently, she has also started a series on her blog {Read More}

Take Courage, Young Mother

“…God takes small, imperfect things and builds them into a habitation for his glory. O, how we should take courage in our little spheres of influence! And is this not the message of Advent and Christmas? What more appropriate word could God have said to Mary as Jesus was growing up: Take courage, young mother, you build more than you see. And so it is with every one of us. Nothing you do is a trifle if you do it {Read More}

Processing Grief

Warning: this post is me processing and therefore it may come out as random ramblings and may be rather long. I feel like it’s been so busy and crazy for the last month and a half that I haven’t had time to sit and think and process everything that has happened. I was barely at the beginning of my journey in grieving the loss of my baby girl Ezana when we got the terrible news about Angie’s death. Now I am trying {Read More}

Mothering Mondays

If you are a mother, I just want to take a brief moment to share about my dear friend Rosaleen who has a beautiful blog where she details all the wonders of her life as a wife and a mother to 3 adorable children as they travel the world and experience different cultures and gorgeous scenery.  Her writing is always filled with poetry and romance as she invites you into a world of innocence, purity and simple joys.  Along with her {Read More}

Book Review: Sacred Parenting by Gary Thomas

A friend of mine lent me their copy of Gary Thomas’s book Sacred Parenting several months ago and I finally finished it!  It didn’t take me this long to read because it was unenjoyable – on the contrary, it was so full of depth and rich words that I needed the extra time to chew on what he wrote.  In fact, now that I’m done, I think I’m going to read it again and perhaps write some further posts on how {Read More}

The Hannah Season

So, in my last post, I talked about the Esther Season – the time in my life where God was preparing me for my future husband. Now, I am beginning a new journey into what I’ve decided to call the Hannah Season. As I’m sure most of you know, Hannah was the mother to the well-known prophet of the Bible, Samuel. Her story can be found in the first 3 chapters of the book of 1 Samuel and she is {Read More}
