“I want to play too.”—Hanging out with Jesus

” I want to play too mommy,” my son said with a tear in his eyes as he watched his big sister in gymnastics class today. Sitting up against the wall trying to enjoy the book in his hands, his poor little heart was broken wanting to be included. 45 minutes seemed like hours to this 2 year old full of energy and passion. I sat watching his eyes as he watched her roll…

The Home-schooling Dilemma

So now it is time to be real. I am a real mom with real concerns and real questions regarding how my husband and I raise our kids.

He will bring forth your righteousness as the light and your judgment as the noonday.” Psalm 37 I know that we have all heard this verse many times. Usually when we…

Just when I think I am making headway in something, once again my weakness begins to glare at me in the mirror. Wow. It really is true that I can do absolutely nothing apart from Christ. Now I always know this is true in my heart, but my mind forgets. I am an extreme multitasker…

Today’s Roads and Tomorrow’s Dreams

Sometimes I look out my window with the Lord and dream. I love being a mom of two kids, and I loving dreaming and wondering about all the things that they will do in the world. I look at the roads outside my door and think about all the amazing destinations they will take them to. There are so many paths to choose and so many roads to travel. Then it gets really quiet in…
