Hi my dear readers! The Lord has been stirring an idea around in my heart for awhile now for a new blog. As our family has entered into a new season in our service and ministry to Him, I thought this would be a good time to launch it! Thank you all so much for…… Continue reading Come Check Out My New Blog!
My Dear Daughter, I’m feeling the need to tell you something… YOU ARE BEAUTIFUL! As I look at the world today, it’s not difficult to see that the culture’s terms for beauty are becoming increasingly unattainable, drastically inconsistent and hopelessly flawed. We are told to search for beauty in our weight, hair styles, complexion, bra…… Continue reading That Is Beautiful
My dear friend, Today we say goodbye. A forever farewell. You have been a faithful and constant companion during this precious season of my life. In the times of joy and laughter, times of exhaustion and fatigue, times of love and learning – in all the wonderfully hard and beautifully sweet moments with my babies……… Continue reading Goodbye, Dear Friend
We have a new routine of laying in my bed to read books before sending my two little people off to sleep. We had just finished our last story for the night. I was laying in the center with one on each side of me. I look over to my right to see that she…… Continue reading Catching the Waves

There are moments I feel like I’m a captive vessel in the raging…… Continue reading The Altar of Motherhood
First, I have to go shopping to pick out the perfect outfit. Then, I come home and start to get ready. First I paint my nails.. Then, my mom curls my hair.. and puts on some makeup! And then….. ..and that’s how you get ready for a date.

It’s been one of those days. I LOVE MY FAMILY..but today, I’m tired. I’m tired of constantly picking up toys. I’m tired of laundry. I’m tired of cleaning spilled milk from cereal off the floor. I’m tired of not being able to go to the bathroom by myself. I’m tired of not being able to…… Continue reading When You Want To Run Away
