Glory Be

This world is both not enough and too much. The hardships are crushing. And the chasing can’t satisfy the real desires of my heart. To be known, loved, and completely secure. We want the impossible: wholeness in a broken world. But Glory Be to Jesus who offers the impossible. Glory Be to the One who coversContinue reading “Glory Be”

You’re doing it all right, mom

500 decisions a day. I read somewhere that’s how many little choices a teacher makes and why they’re so tired. Motherhood is a whole lotta teaching. And even more second-guessing. I guarantee that you wondered, regretted, feared, or worried last week, if not today, that your way of momming was wrong. Me too. I heardContinue reading “You’re doing it all right, mom”

Scandalous Kindness

Kindness doesn’t seem sensational. It’s lumped into the boring, normal, ought to category. But the more I research, the more scandalous kindness is. We’re numb to the miracle that kindness is. It’s a triumph over selfishness. And that undeserved kindness also goes by the name… grace. But we won’t truly grasp the magnitude of kindnessContinue reading “Scandalous Kindness”

Godly Disagreement Action Plan

Do you love being criticized? No? Me neither. It’s so hard to remain patient with others when we disagree or feel attacked. I need an action plan because conflict is bound to come and I want to be prepared. My first instinct when someone criticizes me is often to defend myself — the I’m right,Continue reading “Godly Disagreement Action Plan”

Which mom are you?

You may be a boy  mom if you’ve heard, “Mom! I’m done! And it looks like a snake!” Or a girl mom if you’ve yelled, “We don’t have time to brush your hair, just get in the car!” You may be a SAHMom if you put on a jacket to drive kids to school becauseContinue reading “Which mom are you?”
