Naked...and Lacking

Putting yourself out there is hard...

The Price of Passion

What hurts you the most is the thing that makes you great.

Pay It Forward. And Don't Stop.

When someone invests time in me, I have a choice.

Words

I want my words to be a blessing to others, not a weapon against them.

Baby Love

What do you do when you're not ready for a baby?

Paying the Price

I stood in line at the local courthouse--speeding ticket, driver's license, and proof of insurance in hand. On this particular Friday afternoon, the desk was short by one clerk and the line long by ten people.

R is for Rest

Rest in Me, says the Lord. But sometimes that's hard to do.

Just Do It

A lot of life needs to happen without forethought. Here are a few things you can do without great pondering.

Funerals, Flowers, Friends, and Good Friday

Without desolation and loss, hope cannot shine

Sometimes I forget life is the sum of each moment added together day by day, minute by minute.. As I race past those moments, I'm wasting them.

Ever Feel Unloved? Unappreciated? Devalued?

Ever have one of those days? Or weeks when no one notices how hard you're laboring to make sure their lives work?

The Power of Prayer: Never Underestimate It

My son came home yesterday and greeted me with a few of the most terrifying words a mom never wants to hear. "I almost got killed yesterday..."

Gratitude in the Face of Desperation

As mom to three, I've donned hats I'd never expected to wear, but CANCER MOM was the hat that jolted me out of my complacent stupor.

When Life Poops On You

Sometimes the little things mess me up, steal my joy, set me up for failure.

Fine Lines -- Just Walk 'Em

Do you ever feel like you're walking a fine line in your marriage, your parenting, your job? This week I found myself thinking a lot about fine lines. Can you relate?

A Mentor's Worth

A Mentor's Worth

What Changed?

Missing the beauty and wonder of God's Word?

Conceding Christmas Part Two: The Response

Every moment I don't let go, fear eats away at me. I live in bondage to the terror that Kyle will die and leave me.
