I believe…

I believe in… I believe in raising my children with ample supply of silliness. I believe in playing dress up. I believe in making a mess. I believe in dancing in the rain I believe in jumping in muddy puddles. I believe in rolling in the dirt. I believe in bedtime stories I believe inRead more

This is a picture of my vision board – don’t laugh…actually – go ahead let’s laugh together, I realize it’s blank, leading a person to sarcastically wonder, what sort of vision is this? Give me a moment to explain – the fact that I now own this MASSIVE (blank) pin board is a HUGE deal.Read more

Rains and Valleys, how to survive the unlivable.

post image

Matthew 5:45 ‘…It rains on the just and the unjust alike.’ – This is one of those statements in the Bible that just doesn’t make sense to me? Elsewhere in the same book, we are told that God is good, His plan for us is good, and what the Devil intends for bad – GodRead more

Do what you can

‘When we do what we can do, God does what we can’t.’ In Acts 16:25-26, Paul and Silas did what they could do. They were in prison, locked up in chains. They did the only thing they could do, they prayed and sang praises. And when they did what they could do, God did what onlyRead more

Unrelenting Love

Scripture: Psalms 139 In Psalms 139, David writes about God’s love for us. In it, he describes a type of love that we struggle to believe exists. Our definition of love is often shaped by what we see lived out by those who love us or what we see demonstrated by those around us. StatisticallyRead more
