How to Control Your Feelings {When They're Out of Control}

A friend asked me the other day how I'm able to keep my feelings from running my life. My answer? I don't always. But I'm learning.

Need some hope to start your new year?

This mothering gig is hard work, and it doesn't really matter if you stay home with your children or work outside of the home. Most moms, regardless of their work status, want the very best for their children, but all too often, mothering leaves us drained, worried, and desperate for a touch from God.

When Mom is Tempted to Despair

Last Thanksgiving I prepared a day of wonderful education and hands-on experience for my boys. As a homeschooling family, we're always looking for ways to make the calendar come alive, and it had occurred to me that my boys, then six and four, had never really learned the story of Thanksgiving.

When Mom Lives in the Shadows

The light was nothing short of remarkable. No mountains blocked it. No hills kept it from view. I turned a complete 360 and realized that everywhere I looked there was light. And I was stunned...and also hooked on beautiful light.

When Radical Faith Goes in Mourning

When painful surprises of life come, our faith can take a hit. How do we resolve all of the questions we have about God when life just hurts too much?

Want to change the world? Pray for your sons.

Pray purposefully and passionately for the hearts of your sons.

Should I Put My Daughter on Birth Control?

We hope that by putting our daughters on birth control we will protect them from getting pregnant, or getting in a position where they have to make a choice. But I submit that doing this communicates a negative message to your children.

The Importance of Sharing Your Story

When was the last time you danced in the freedom of your forgiveness? When was the last time the joy of your salvation overwhelmed you such that you shouted to anyone who would listen, "Come see a man!!"

Is There a Biblical Formula for Raising Good Kids?

How? It's the question we would sell our most valuable possessions to answer. How do we ensure that our children will grow up to love and serve the Lord? Is there a forumla to follow?

forgetting to dance

The ability to really see the beauty of life, to stop and pick up the flowers, to feel the green grass sway around me, and get lost in the breeze as I run through the field...those moments of passing splendor come less and less often as I fight the skepticism that comes with seeing too much pain. I've lost my twirl.
