“So, When Are You Going to Have Kids?” Someone asked me about kids 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 eight years. I wish I was exaggerating, but if you’ve been married any length of time and find […]

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 […]

An Unusual Birthday Today I turn 31, and today I should be delivering our third baby. It’s a strange feeling to celebrate life and mourn death on the same day. I remember it like it was yesterday. We’d gone to church that morning, and as I sat in the back, I felt a bit “off” […]

An Enduring Hope The Coronavirus is ravaging the world this year. All the fun family activities of the first week or two faded. Instead, we’re left in the murky middle where patience wore thin and we all felt a little stuck. Now, we’re moving into stages of “reopening” the world. Recommendations change by the moment […]

A Year We’ll Remember No one is going to forget the year 2020. From celebrity deaths, to living through a pandemic, to seeing racial injustice on every media outlet—we will have a hard time forgetting the events of this year. We may forget which celebrity died and when. Or we may forget how many rolls […]

An Unusual Time This is a strange time we are living in, isn’t it? 2020 has been a year to remember, and we are only halfway through it. The beginning of the year overflowed with so much promise. We dreamed big dreams and planned big plans. When COVID-19 hit the US, there were moments of […]

The Best is Yet to Come College is such an interesting season of life because you never really know what’s around the next corner. Those years have a funny way of making it feel like your whole life is up in the air, hinging on your next exam, your acceptance into a certain program, or […]
