I will update this list as I discover new resources. If you have a resource you think I should add, please email me.
Hi Mamas! I’m back from an unexpected blogging break. The last four weeks have included moving out of my childhood home, five different places of sleeping, airplanes and road trips. We finally are settled—temporarily—until God shows us what’s next.
We don’t know what God is up to.
So, what do we do—when we don’t know what to do?
In this week’s video, I share a thought from God’s word and my current circumstances.
Have a great week,
My family continues to encounter various trials. Death of loved ones. Broken car doors. Sickness that stretches out into weeks. Joblessness. Not knowing where to live. Saying goodbye to my childhood home—and the list goes on. No matter what the trials—big or small—they can leave us weary and discouraged. But I see progress in my own soul. Last summer I handled the trials very differently.
When we encounter hard challenges, is it possible to consider it joy?
This week’s reflection comes from James 1:1-4. I hope it encourages you.
I’m in California slowly sorting through a lifetime of memories as we sell my childhood home. One of my insights is a motherhood epiphany. Listen and be encouraged, mamas!
Sometimes our circumstances weigh us and bring us to our knees. We cry out to God, but silence. Where is God in our Gethsemane seasons?
Sometimes God feels far. He feels far for me right now. I feel like a ball in a ping ball machine, bounced around in a chaotic rattling, but not really going anywhere. Only to return from where I came from, the bottom.
When life feels dark and we are pinging off of anxiety, depression, grief, and other threatening emotions, how can we find balance, peace, and truth?
Listen to this week’s video reflection. I hope it helps you and those you love.
God, I know Your Word says you never leave me, but you feel far away. Do you see me? The way ahead is clouded and I am overcome. Please help me. Please show me the way, even for just the next step. The noise and the chaos clouds me from clarity. Please, be my clarity. In Jesus’ name, AMEN.
How about you? How do you experience God in the darkness? Please share. You can leave a comment by clicking here.
Motherhood is culture making.
Sometimes the repetition of sock-folding, dish-scrubbing, diaper-changing, and grocery-shopping seems mundane. Yet when we realize that motherhood is part of the grand purpose of God for us to make something of this world, the mundane turns into an avenue of purpose-driven creation.
