Perspective on Loving My Children

A friend of mine from our homeschool co op shared this sweet little take on 1 Corinthians 13… it made me smile and brought courage to my heart. It is a day where I needed this strong reminder: all else (including freezing rain, cranky hearts, fussing siblings, sick kids, and halfhearted schoolwork) will fade away, […]

Journey Bread

I have been baking bread for my family since I was pregnant with Gabriel… that’s a good nine years of healthy, delicious, economical goodness right there. I have come up with a couple different staple recipes that I can whip up easily and consistently. My typical loaf bread includes whole wheat (ground right in my […]

Light

Light at the end of the tunnel. It’s an interesting phrase, cliche, concept, and reality. I remember spending months and years wondering why every light I would see would end up being a train to pummel me rather than the end of the tunnel. Just when I would glimpse hope or joy, my life would […]

Big Kid Joys

I love babies. My mom might smile and tell you that’s largely because I’ve had “easy babies.” But let’s be honest: to at least a certain extent, babies are babies, and babies are also honed by the hard work of their mama. So while God definitely did give my babies their blessed personalities and natures, […]

Blinding

October has always been one of my favorite months. In fact, if I had been a more patient woman, I would have waited an extra five months to get married just so I could have an October anniversary! But as it happened, seven days post college graduation was all I was willing to wait. (No […]

Lenses

It never ceases to amaze me how our experiences shape and color the lenses through which we look. Even something as simple as a devotional title this morning… it struck me… My eyes read “Riding the Rollercoaster of Miscarriage.” I was surprised to find, upon reading it & then going back to the top to […]

There are Days…

There are days when I am THAT mom. When I bring my daughter to storytime at the library even though she is coughing with a bark like a seal. When she sits in the front row, squished between total stranger toddlers, and proceeds to loudly make friends between conversations, giggles, coughs, and interacting with the […]

Be Encouraged, Mamas!

I recorded a little voice memo for myself not long after my husband bought me an iPhone. “Be encouraged. The work you are doing may be hard, and you’re in the thick of it. But you are doing GOOD WORK.” I often think about the good works God planned long ago for me to walk […]
