Two Years

It’s been a wild ride so far. We were married six months when the Coronavirus hit. I am so thankful we had normalcy the entirety of our dating, engagement, wedding, and first six months of marriage! Praise the Lord! Getting used to being a wife and a brand new mom (to a four year old…

Exclusive

Christianity is true and all other religions and worldviews are false. I know. I’m so close-minded. Your truth says something different. But the thing is, there is no “your truth”. There’s no my truth either. There is only the truth. So how can I make this truth claim? Logic, reason, and personal experience. I know…

My God Story

Guys. I have NEVER had it all together. Not before I was a Christian, and not since becoming one. I fall short every day. But if God can take the mess I was, the girl who thought she had zero value, then he can do the same for you. The amazing thing is, he longs…

I like Big Buts and I Cannot Lie

What situation seems impossible right now? Where do you feel helpless? I have good news. If you belong to Jesus, there is always, always, always hope. We have a God who is present and powerful. Things may not look good right now, but God is in control; working all things together for the good of…

I’m Not Okay

I started crying while I was feeding the dogs this morning. Not because a bag of their special rice-free blend costs eighty dollars, but because I’m grieving and the overwhelming sadness came at me, unexpected and uninvited, as I scooped Annameat Encore into bowls. Rewind to March 26..it’s Thursday afternoon and I’m waiting anxiously for…

Trust me, I’ve been there

I’ve given my heart to some real winners. There was the alcoholic, the guy who stole my money and helped me look for it, and the one with anger issues who sent me an “I can’t stop eating” GIF because I didn’t want to date him anymore and had put on ten pounds that year….

Mrs.Who?

Did anyone else have an identity crisis when they tied the knot? I can no longer identify as “single plump waitress living in friend’s attic with constipated cat”. No wonder I didn’t get much action on E-Harmony. Just kidding. Mostly. The truth is, I spent many years not quite fitting in with the people around…

40:40 Day…40

  Today will be the last post in my forty day series of commemorating God’s faithfulness and persisting in prayer. I remember being on day eight and wondering how in the world I would come up with thirty-two more God moments to write about, but he brought more to mind as the days progressed and…

40:40 Day 39

Wow. Just one more day to go in this series.  God has showed up so many times in so many ways. Sometimes he answers even dumb prayers, just because he can. A few months ago I was waiting on an a sweet older couple at the restaurant, and out of nowhere a thought popped into…

40:40 Day 38

God’s provision doesn’t always look miraculous. Sometimes he lets us know he’s there with us in the work-week monotony, in busyness and routine, especially when we ask. Just because it’s an ordinary day doesn’t mean he’s not awesome and powerful and willing to work in our lives. Cut to Thursday. I don’t mind food running…
