The Battle Rages

There is a battle and it is very real. We may not see it and then again maybe we do. Maybe we are so used to seeing it that we turn a blind eye. We long not to see it. We long not to feel its pain. It is the battle for our souls. And without God, it is a… Read more →

How He Loves Us

In the End

With all the doom and gloom in the news today, it is easy to forget that God has everything in control. Beheadings, shootings, kidnappings, disasters…and the list could go on and on. We are told in Revelation these types of things will happen before Jesus’ return. Yet it is easy to let worry set in and begin to forget that He… Read more →

Trip to Crystal Bridges - April 2015 Ally loves to read!

Happy Birthday, Ally!

10 years! 10 years ago you made me a momma for the first time. 10 years ago I looked into your sweet face and fell in love. 10 years have passed so quickly, I can’t seem to find the pause button. I love watching you grow into a sweet, caring, and loving young lady. Your love for God and desire to… Read more →

The Middle

I get a little anxious in the middle. In the middle of transitions my brain begins to race and the worry creeps in. Ever so subtly at first but then I realize its presence.

But I just LOVE them!  I am so blessed with siblings, definitely haven’t always felt this way, but I know I wouldn’t change having them for… Read more →

Faith and Doubts

“Faith is not the absence of doubt, it is moving forward through the doubt.” ~unknown When doubts creep in, my first instinct is to stop. The doubts can be paralyzing.

Go and Share

We stand on this side of the Easter holiday and we celebrate. We know that the resurrection took place. We know He conquered death. We know the power of salvation. Jesus’ disciples witnessed these miraculous events and were left with a task. Go! Share! And that they did. They traveled many miles. Walked some tough roads. Endured pain and heartache.… Read more →

He is Alive

Happy Easter to loved ones near and far! These scriptures were preached this morning and I couldn’t help but to share them. 1 Corinthians 15 12 But if it is preached that Christ has been raised from the dead, how can some of you say that there is no resurrection of the dead? 13 If there is no resurrection of… Read more →

This Day

Oh there are so many thoughts I could share with you on this day. Some make my heart heavy and others bring life and hope to my soul. Today, my dad would have turned 53. He would have celebrated with his grand-daughters. Today, my brother turns 28! He has the sweetest smile and even when he is hard headed, we love him like… Read more →
