What Breastfeeding Is Teaching Me About God

  I know many of you have already heard, but just in case you haven’t….I’m at Today’s Christian Woman this week with an article on breastfeeding. I am definitely not a militant pro-breastfeeding person, I understand and have personally experienced that it’s not always the best choice for mom and baby. But this time, feeding […]

Commit and Trust

I am all over the place with my writing. Do I focus on blogging? Writing articles? Am I supposed to write a book? Pitch to editors? Put together an e-book and gather email addresses for my blog? Am I creating enough of a social media presence? Do I know my nitch? Am I focused? I […]

On Not Belonging to Our Belongings

We were created for the Lord. And He gave us everything we needed in the Garden. An abundance, really. Not just a bare bones, run-of-the-mill environment.

Even though I’ve never dwelt on that word before, we recently moved and I know the feeling of not belonging. To kick off this #write31days challenge, I thought […]

Peace in the Chaos

I should be coming undone right now… I have lots of littles. (Always a complexity factor). I just got done working full time hours for six weeks (when i usually work less than 1/2 that). We’re in the middle of a move. (Why do we have ants in our pants? We’re always moving but at […]

I Want to Be the Orange Butterfly- Finding Significance in Christ

I just attended The Gospel Coalition Women’s Conference in Orlando, FL with three good friends from church and 4500 other women. (Props to my husband for caring for our kids solo for 3+ days. It sounds like they had more fun than when mom’s home…the beach, campfires, birthday parties and dinners with friends. I was […]
