Already Equipped for Tomorrow
Happy Thanksgiving!! Today I come to you with a confession that in this busy season I have not spent time with the one I love the most. I have let wonderful responsibilities and joyful obligations fill my days. This is a busy season in my life, but I want to do better at spending good quality time with God.
When You Have No Peace
God knows us so intimately that when he formed us in our mother’s womb he took into account all that we would face in our life to come. He prepared us for every moment as he intricately wove together each aspect of our person. God equipped us for our entire life before we took our first breath. That is love.
The Call to Be a Parent
My daughter was fighting for her life, we were living in a hospital, unable to work, overwhelmed with facts, uncomfortable with treatment protocols, and our future was unknown. Nothing in that situation seems peaceful, but our God took the chaos of that dark situation and used it to focus my attention on Him.
Making Sense of the Pain
God has gifted us with life. We are to stand with them, defend them, and value them. Our call as parents is to lay down our own life: our dreams, our future, our freedom, to raise up a child of God.
Happy Mother's Day
We are not forgotten, we are not being punished...we are blessed.
Parenting is Difficult, but Blessed
Motherhood is beautifully blessed, but not for the faint of heart. Motherhood is like living with your heart and soul outside of yourself in another person. It is the ultimate lesson of selflessness and servitude.
But the greatest of these is Love
Did you know that God did not choose the Father-Child relationship,
but CREATED it to represent the intimate connection he desires with us as his children?
The pure love we have for our kids is a constant reminder of the inescapable love our Father in Heaven has for us.
The Gift of Time
"And now I will show you the most excellent way"
I want to share with you a lesson the Lord taught me during my last Christmas Season with my daughter Claire.
