It’s Okay If You Haven’t Been Stellar At Praying I’ll be honest. I have not always been consistent in my prayer life, particularly when my children were tiny. There were times when I would forget to pray for them for days at a time. Often, I wasn’t sure exactly WHAT to pray for them either.… Continue reading Praying God’s Word Over Our Kids

Persistence is Modeled in the Bible I was reading through Draw the Circle: 40 Day Prayer Challenge, and the reading for the day was the story of the persistent widow. In Luke 18:1, Jesus shares a parable of how a widow comes before a judge with bad character. At first he ignores her, but the… Continue reading Prayer Requires Persistence
Lately, I’ve been feeling stretched way too thin. I signed up to be an affiliate for the Ultimate Homemaking Bundle, and I had big plans (even though I was a bit late joining the party – yes, I signed up 2 days before the sale started. Oops!).

As parents, we spend 18 or 19 years preparing our kids to step out into the world, to live out the beliefs we’ve instilled and to make good decisions. However, a lot of the… Continue reading The Book That Terrified Me!
Who I Am Lies In Who God Is This year, I have been praying that God would show me what it truly means to be His child. It’s always interesting to me how God answers my prayers. It’s never in the way that I expect! First, He led me to a book about who He is.… Continue reading The Importance of Prayer

Maybe because Easter is only a few days away or maybe because I’ve taken the time to mark the timeline as I’ve been reading, but it just hit me that… Continue reading Missing Jesus
Not Bothered By the #1 Fear When I was 5 years old, I stood in front of a crowd of people at a Word of Life camp and gave my testimony. In my Sunday school class, I would climb on top of the table and tap dance to “lead” the other kids in the singing.… Continue reading The Gift of Being Present
Do you really believe God is in control? I know, we all SAY that we believe that, but do we really? If the past election season is any indication, the answer to that would have to be a resounding no. I am 44 years old, and I have never seen so many people descend into… Continue reading God Can Work Through Anyone
