What are you Carrying?

Hi friend,  I hope that you are doing well! While overall, I really am well, I still can’t help but notice lately my heart is a little heavy with different burdens of life around me right now. On top of regular day-to-day life, I feel like there are always the constant questions in the air…

Hope for the New Year

How are you feeling about this New Year? I know many people are so happy to be seeing 2020 in the rearview. Are you looking at the New Year with excitement? Maybe a little bit uncertain or skeptical? I personally love starting a New Year. Something about the freshness of starting new and dreaming about…

Our time in Mexico and some Reflections on Callings

Do you all have something that’s so close to your heart it’s almost impossible to share about it? It’s been killing me that I’ve been working on this blog for a while and not really written yet about our family’s time serving in Mexico. I realize though it is because what that time means to…

A couple of years ago my family was living in my in-law’s(or as I call them, my  in-love’s) basement. We had just come off the mission field in Mexico and were transitioning back into life in the US. It was a really crazy time– because of circumstances, it wasn’t just us living with them, but…

Thoughts on Psalm One and Finding Time in God’s Word when Life Feels Busy

Around this time last year I was so blessed to go to a women’s retreat where we were talking about God’s Word and how important it is to be in His word and delighting ourselves in it. One of the things we did was take time to share ideas about how to make time to…

Our Essential Family Schedule

One of my most constant struggles is doing versus being. The classic Christian internal, “Are you Mary or Martha?” question. Even though I know the right answer is to be Mary, my natural tendency always leads me to Martha first and then I have to seriously track back. You’d think I’d notice this about myself…

Creating a Portable Prayer Closet and Thoughts on Organizing Prayer Requests

edit: I just want to add a quick disclaimer that this post is meant to just be a tool to your already established prayer time that’s led by the Lord. It’s not a post describing in detail about prayer, or the importance of prayer, but I’d love post something like that in the future. This…
