Feelings

Does this really matter?  The question crosses my mind as I scrub leftover casserole off dirty dishes, sit in the winding carpool line, pay bills, and switch the laundry over…yet again. What I don’t mean by this question is: Does it matter that we have clean plates to eat off of, that my kids are […]

“I don’t believe in bad days.” I remember saying these words aloud for the first time to my college roommate. Her face twisted into some kind of annoyed disbelief, and I stifled a giggle. I hadn’t realized that I held this conviction until the words flew out of my mouth. I said this after she […]

Forsaking Broken Wells This article is part of our series on broken wells. In Gretchen’s new book, The Well-Watered Woman, chapter 5 is about “Forsaking Broken Wells.” We long for the living water that Jesus offers (John 4:10). But too often, we settle for empty wells and broken cisterns (Jer. 2:11-13). Gretchen explains, “We spend […]

Church can feel like an add-on to our weeks. We’ve already invested so much time in going to Tuesday morning moms’ group, writing in our journals and following our inductive studies, listening to podcasts and sermons in the car, humming worship music while scrubbing dishes, and teaching our children the classic Bible stories during family […]

Grieving and Growing This past October, my baby girl went to be with Jesus. She was born at just 22 weeks due to a life-threatening condition that almost took me with her. It was a devastating and shocking loss, one that I am still processing daily. As you can imagine, this heart-wrenching goodbye ushered in […]

Anger at Home I punched our dinner once. Yep, full fist right into the fish fillet before me. The details flee my mind of why on earth I felt such burning rage at that moment in our home. All I know is, in my foolishness, I can destroy a whole lot more than our dinner. […]

Deep breath in, deep breath out. 2021 is almost here.  There’s always something exciting and refreshing about a new year. But with the year we’ve had in 2020, we all long to start new. Since last spring, I’ve seen people joking online, “Can 2020 just be over now?” This strange year has seemed endlessly daunting. […]

God’s Goodness in Hard Seasons “Everything about my life feels hard.”  I spoke these words to a friend and I wasn’t being dramatic or seeking to gain her pity. It’s just the reality of living through my husband’s second deployment this year, caring for our six children on my own, and handling the challenges of […]

Love God, No Matter What Tomorrow is an important day in America. Thousands of folks across the nation will cast their vote for a new President. This election season has brought to light many fears and uncertainties that might have otherwise remained hidden but were likely there all along. I know I’ve had my fair […]

Jesus and My Past Sometimes my past haunts me. I’ve been a believer for nearly ten years and barely recognize the woman I was before Jesus plucked me out of darkness and gave me a new heart. Yet, in the quiet hours of the night when sleep is nowhere to be found, I see her. […]
