Is Your Fire Lit?

A few years ago my husband asked me the most influential question in my walk with Christ. He seen how chaotic my mind had been and took me out for a date night which he knows I always enjoy. We sit down at the restaurant and start having a conversation. He continues on and asks...

The Tale of Two Trees

I would be dishonest if I did not say that it is hard to look at the three oldest children and realize how much of their life went by and how much I missed in many aspects. I mean, I was there, but I was not always there; well, I guess what I am trying...

Unopened Gifts Under the Tree

Have you ever looked under the tree and wished for just one more gift?  Did you ever find one and reach for it only to find it wasn’t for you after all? Did you ever find a gift under the tree that wasn’t labeled and wonder who it was for? You pick it up…shake it…seeing if that...

“Yeah, But…What Else?”

Press On!

If I am learning anything during this season that I am in that is to persevere even when it looks and feels so challenging. There are days where I just want to hide under my blankets and allow time to just pass on and when I am better, I’ll catch up to life then. When...

The Father’s Strength

Over the last year or so, I have started to learn a lot more about my marriage.  What I never really understood or valued as much as I do now is quality time together.  There were times early in our marriage I would leave in the morning for school by 4:00 A.M to hit the...

“27 And as Jesus passed on from there, two blind men followed him, crying aloud, “Have mercy on us, Son of David.” 28 When he entered the house, the blind men came to him, and Jesus said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” They said to him, “Yes, Lord.”...
