The Love of a Father

post image

When I was 16 or 17, my dad caught me trying to sneak out of the house. I had the window of our living room open and just as I was getting ready to make my move… the sound of his feet coming down the creaky old steps of our home sent me running forRead more

Jesus and Friends

post image

Jesus, and friends (and GREAT coffee). Alright, Alright – strike the coffee (chalk that one up to an added bonus, but that’s not what we’re here to talk about, let’s FOCUS) -> Jesus, and friends. I packed these words in the suitcase of my mind as I walked away from coffee this weekend.  I packedRead more

4 Steps to Surrender: Step 2 Acknowledge

post image

God is omnipotent which means he is all powerful. Not only is God all powerful, but God is sovereign.

God’s sovereignty means that He alone is in control. He’s all powerful,Read more

4 Steps to Surrender; the day I stopped trying to fix it.

post image

The day I stopped trying to fix it… Alone listening to a podcast on my way to work that day – just me, Jesus, and a wandering mind mulling through events of the morning, processing things that didn’t happen, and those that did, but should have gone differently. I’m a fixer – maybe, you areRead more

An interesting truth especially for those of us with children. We understand our own ability to possess a love like this when it comes to loving our kids, but ifRead more

Kids and comfort zones

Being a parent, I am consistently floored at the way God uses my children to speak to me. Another one of those beautiful instances happened not long ago. We are in the midst of training a worrier. She’s incredible. I wish she could see the greatness I see when I look at her. She’s smart, witty,Read more

Resolve to Choose…

post image

I don’t like to do hard things. I don’t know that any of us really do. Doing hard things requires effort. Effort= intention, intention = thought and thought = work and I don’t know about you, but I work a fulltime job, have a husband to partner with, and four kids to train. Some daysRead more

post image

It’s been another great year of Choosing Him. What started out two years ago from curiousity of what could happen if I shared the words burning inside of me – is flourishing. No – it is not at all a household name. Nor is it anything in comparison to the blogging giants of the world,Read more
