I read the most beautiful passage the other day, in Deuteronomy of all places. It may be one of my new favorite Bible passages!

          Remember how the Lord your God led you all the way in the wilderness these forty                    years, to humble and test you in order to know what was in your heart, whether or not              you would keep his commands. He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then...

Life has gotten easier in a few areas lately and I have had the idea of freedom on my mind. What am I using my freedom for? 

Sarah's birthday post made me want to piggyback off the idea of "editing."

Although I used to be an editor by profession, I do not always excel at editing when it comes to LIFE. I am the type who jumps at the chance to add things or responsibilities to my life the moment I'm able. Call it being the eldest...

I am signing off until after Christmas--today is Nick's last day in the office for a few days and I plan on soaking in my family while we're all home.

I wanted to leave you with a couple thoughts as many of us enter into a time of gatherings and merry-making. 

I recently learned of more than a couple people just outside of our circle who have either attempted or succeeded in taking their lives. This is on the heels of other hear...

We had the most special day celebrating George's baptism with family and friends. Here are some photos from the day, if you'd like to see!

"Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows." James 1:17

"The Lord your God is with you;

He is mighty to save.

He will rejoice over you with gladness;

He will quiet you with His love;

He will rejoice ove...

It's funny because as I sat down to write this morning, I noticed my last post, from a month and a half ago, was sitting unpublished in "drafts." So much of that post no longer applies, so I almost deleted it, but instead I posted it with its original date and decided to let it illustrate how quickly things can change--still one of the hardest parts of motherhood for me. As soon as you get the hang of something, or in the case...

An early Merry Christmas to you! I'm signing off for a few weeks. I had all kinds of holiday things I wanted to talk to you about, but life is even busier than usual, and something has to give. 

In church yesterday our pastor told a story about a wealthy European family who had a lavish party at their home to celebrate their child's baptism. Guests were wined and dined, and when it came time for the actual christening ceremony,...

“I have learned the secret of being content in any and every situation, whether well fed or hungry, whether living in plenty or in want.  I can do all this through him who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:12-13

And also:

“Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you m...

I think sometimes as moms we doubt ourselves and our worth, for one reason or another. Social media, personal expectations, comparisons with others, whatever. Do you ever feel like you’re not enough for your kids? I do, sometimes. Not crafty enough, fun enough, skilled enough in the kitchen, etc. etc. etc. And I don't think it matters whether you work or spend your days at home, or what faith you are, or how you were raised. I...

Okay, I sort of take back some of what I said about summer.

The past couple of weeks have been HARD. The days have been LONG. The house has been MESSY. I've had a teething baby, a sick toddler, and an injured leg which makes chasing everyone not the easiest.

Have you ever heard of a Highly Sensitive Person? I have recently been made aware of the term, and I am one, all the way. (One of my children is also one.) Mess and chaos ma...

If you have a toddler, does he or she ask you the same question hundreds of times a day? Eloise’s new favorite question to ask is “Why?” and today, a rainy day, the question was “Why did Mr. Rain come?” My answer has been that sometimes God makes it rain so that the flowers can grow.

Today’s verse in my daily devotional is Exodus 17:5-6:

"The Lord answered Moses, “Go out in front of the people. Take with you some of the elders o...
