Moms come in all different shapes, sizes, colors, histories, gifts and callings.  Motherhood is not a “one size fits all” deal.  In theory this is a great truth.  In practice it can be very challenging to accept and believe.
Some moms work outside the home, some moms are full time homemakers.  Some moms send their kids [...]

A very long time ago I heard a woman speak about how to create a lovely home.   Her audience was a group of pastors’ wives, and her primary point was the importance of focusing on the master bedroom before tackling any other room in the house.  The “love nest” should be every woman’s priority.

“How do you do it?  How do you sleep all three kids in one room?”

I get asked this question…a lot.  Honestly, I’m no supermom, so I don’t usually have a good answer.  I guess the one thing we had going for us was that our kids have never known anything but sharing a room together. [...]

Who’s Got The Power?

Did you know that nothing can, or cannot, happen to you without the approval or knowledge of your heavenly Father?  Did you know that, when trouble comes, there is someone ultimately in control?  Someone who really and truly cares about you and has your best interest in mind.  Nothing, nothing, has more power over your [...]

I Never Promised You A Rose Garden

John 16:33 “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace.  In this world you will have trouble.  But take heart!  I have overcome the world.”
I like happy stories.  My favorite part of a movie is usually the opening scene showing a happy family going about their business, innocent and [...]

The Things We Hold On To

I successfully delivered three truck loads of old baby clothes, furniture, books, toys and various kinds of paraphernalia to Goodwill today.  With the help of my parents, I confidently tackled the most ominous space in our house: the garage.  For six years it has taunted me, and I’ve been too wimpy to face the junk.

Trust In Real Life

Problems.  They either get your heart pumping with adrenaline or bring weighty worry.
One thing that I am slow in learning, but growing in just the same, is trusting in the Lord no matter what my outside circumstances – or pending deadlines – look like.  God is always in control, and He has never let me [...]
