The Whisper

Growing up I was not the best child. Actually, I was probably one of the worst. I was into everything I shouldn’t have been because I was rebelling due to my parents nasty divorce. And like any child going through something like that I just wanted attention. I wanted to be noticed. My best friend…

What would Jesus do?

The Thanksgiving Holiday is upon us. Last year we started a tradition to drive up to Branson, Missouri with my in laws to spend the week. It’s a tourist city with tons of shows, food, all decorated for Christmas. My daughter is finally getting old enough to enjoy all the magic of Christmas so watching…

Patience is a virtue…one I seem to lack

  Every time I read it, the voice behind it is the lady from Steel Magnolias wearing the tight girdle that harps at Dolly Parton for eating cake. “Calories, Calories!” “Patience is a virtue, patience is a virtue.”  CRINGE!!   I have always been fast-paced.  I’m constantly going, going, going and never stopping.  I’m not a…

Livin’ that Oily Life

First, I want to start off by saying I’m not one of those people who says essential oils cured me or fixed all my problems.  No, they actually haven’t.  But, they have helped me and my family tremendously and because of that I want to write some blogs about what has and HAS NOT worked…

Amateurs built the Ark, professionals built the Titanic.

I saw this quote this morning on Instagram and it struck a chord with me.  What a powerful and true statement.  I can’t tell you how many times in my past, I had given up on dreams, goals, and new opportunities because I was scared. Fearful of failure and thinking I wasn’t good enough. Thinking…

How meticulous are you about your relationship with Christ?

Today, my little toot and I are putting up the Christmas tree.  Some people may think it’s a bit early but watching the excitement on her face was worth every second.  My husband put it together for us then headed outside to do some much-needed yard work.  So I sat, for what seemed like forever…

A thief in the night

During my wait to get pregnant again and to have another precious baby, my faith in God has gotten stronger with each day, with each failed test, and with each month that starts over. I know that God has a plan for me.  I know that my wait is teaching me something.  I’m doing my…

The Wait

Today is the day.  The day I get to take a pregnancy test.  You go to bed the night before, excited, hopeful. But before I even get out of bed, I know.  I’m hurting. Cramping.  I get up to go the bathroom and it’s confirmed.  We’re starting over.  Another month.  Another 30 days.  More stressful…

Take the time.

Another Monday rolls in with the blink of an eye. Why is it that when you’re little time just creeps on by like a snail getting nowhere? Yet, as adults, it seems like we can’t catch up. There is not enough time to do everything that needs to be done. I can’t even believe November…
