Dear Curmudgeonly Congregant…

Dear Curmudgeonly Congregant, I saw you cringe, I saw you glare, I saw your chest heave with a sigh. Each time, it coincided with little noises of little people. If I knew how to properly, appropriately address you with the grace and respect I feel you deserve, I would love to share my perspective with […]

Little Saints in Worship

There have been more than a few times in my life where I have been truly humbled by someone at church asking me how in the world I do it, getting my kids to “sit still and be quiet” for an entire worship service. I usually respond with it’s definitely God’s grace, and we work hard at […]

Teaching People…

I have been contemplating a lot about teaching lately… Everyone says that there comes some kind of slump at the end of February… it seems to coincide with spring fever! So I decided to talk to myself, and pray with my Lord, about things quite a bit this week. I finally got tired of constantly […]

Being Real

I don’t do social media. I am trying to be better about not spending much time every day even on emails or blogging. I think my personal biggest temptation is to look sideways and play the comparison game, especially with other mommies. Other moms (either celebrity or personal friends) seem to have it all together.

Domestic Outfitting by “Little Outfitters”

Excuse me, please, while I take a moment to give a proper shout-out to my friend Hollie and her home business, Little Outfitters. Ladies, I want to have babies, decorate my house, and be up to my elbows in flour just for excuses to use these things! Save your dollars or create a Christmas wish list, […]

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 […]

Adorned

Published by under Beauty,Blogs,Thoughts

          Last month, I had the sweet opportunity to host a little online party for LillaRose hair accessories, with my friend (and LR consultant) Kristi. To kick it off, we pulled together a small GoogleHangout time where half a dozen ladies from all three major US time zones got to laugh together, talk […]

He Makes All Things New

Acts 14:15 “…we bring you good news, that you should turn from vain things to the living God who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and all that is in them.” Revelation 21:5 “And He who was seated on the throne said, Behold, I am making all things new.“ Last month, I had […]
