Submission: Good or Bad? “Wives, submit to your own husbands, as to the Lord. For the husband is the head of the wife even as Christ is the head of the church, his body, and is himself its Savior. Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit in everything to their […]

Submission: a Hidden Treasure

Biblical Womanhood

Hopeful Brokenness I’m reflecting on the recent death of a beloved sister in Christ, in awe of the beautifully hopeful brokenness in this unexpected event. All I saw during the weeks following this loss was a body of believers coming together to carry the burden, to pour truth into one another, and rejoice in the […]

An Eternal Promise Amidst Loss

Hope

Walls Up, Guard Up The walls around my heart and mind have been up for most of my life. Quick to defend, always on guard, hearing the worst instead of the intent. I’ve lived life on the defense for nearly three decades. Early on in dating my (now) husband, we had a conversation that nearly […]

Mom Marathon Training Have you ever trained for a marathon?  Personally, just the thought of such makes me sit down on the couch and grab a bag of chips!  I am truly impressed and greatly intimidated by people–and yes, I even know a few–who are that committed to such an endeavor.

Our Plans We will become foster parents once we have “our own” kids. That’s what my husband and I thought for a while. But God had other plans. On our first date, we talked about how we would love to adopt one day. However, when we became aware of the plight that is the foster […]

Loss in Motherhood: the Grief of Losing a Child

Grief

“So when are you guys going to have kids?” Someone asked me this question at my wedding reception. Let that sink in. I’ve been asked a variation of this question at least once a month for the past seven years. I wish I was exaggerating, but if you’ve been married any length of time and […]

Marriage

Infertility and Waiting It was the week before Mother’s Day. I realized that a little something that was supposed to start the previous week had not. For the first time in my life, I had reason to believe that I could actually be expecting! Day by day, hope rose higher and higher within me, and […]
