Praying Continually…

ContinuallyFeatured

Last Sunday morning we missed church because Baby Bro kept on sleeping and I have learned not to interrupt his sleep.  My third child is not one to sleep anywhere and roll with the punches.  Anyway, I took some time to retreat to our room and catch up on my Bible study that I had…

War Room- A Call to Prayer

AboveTheCloudsFeatured

Did you get to see the movie War Room when it was in theaters?  I wanted to but didn’t get out to see it, so when my parents said someone gave it to them to watch I jumped at the chance to see it.  Wow, was that inspiring and after watching it I felt a strong…

Welcome, 2016!

Welcome2016

Happy New Year! So how is 2016 treating you? My 2016 started out with adding a full nights sleep to my life. Our littlest guy reached 12 weeks and successfully sleep trained the night before our vacation ended. Hubby had a wonderful 3 weeks off at the end of December and we took those 3…

I Almost Fell Off My Seat

For some reason, I felt the need to go back and visit my first post for this year.  I had forgotten what word I chose and the goals I had set.  Imagine that.  Alot of good goals will do if you forget what you are working towards.  *sigh*  Such is life, I suppose. Anyhow, when…

Out Upon the Water, Like Peter

OutUponTheWaterFeatured

Lately I have been keenly identifying with the apostle Peter, specifically his story of being called out upon the water.  I’ve been thinking about all the emotions that he was experiencing in those particular moments- terror being in the middle of the storm on a boat, fear seeing a figure walking towards them where no…

One Big Change

One of the big changes that are happening at our house is we have decided to begin homeschooling this year.  The Lord actually brought me through the 5 steps I laid out in my last post for seeking God’s will, which is how that post came to be.  I sought the Lord’s leading and mentioned specific ways I needed…

The Lord’s Leading

As my family ventures through the life changes that are coming our way in the next 4 months, I find myself praying for wisdom and direction.  There are so many scenarios and options, none of which are bad, but each one would have a different impact.  It’s what Lysa TerKeurst calls finding your best yes and…

Hang On For The Ride

HangOnForTheRide

Life is such a ride sometimes, would you agree?  I am finding especially as I give up control and really listen for God’s voice and direction in my life the ride becomes more eventful and exciting.  I’ll be honest.  For me, I prefer a less exciting ride and maintaining “my control” keeps it nice and…

When The Trials Keep Coming…

TrialsKeepComingFeatured

What in the world do you do when the trials just keep coming?  When you feel like you honestly and truly cannot fight anymore?  When you see all the positive promises of hope and goodness and prosperity and reward and can in no way identify or ever see yourself being able to identify with those…

The #1 Thing That Encouraged Me

Well, how have you been, friend?  I hope your new year has started out well.  This year’s beginning has proven to be something over here.  In a couple days time earlier this month I found myself with 3 new people looking to work with me.  I had already been working with 2 people leaving last…
