30 Days of Life: Day 2

I’m heading out on an adventure this weekend, and super excited about it. I’m also a little bit nervous, but mostly excited, which is how an adventure should feel, right?  My flight leaves at 6 AM on Sunday morning, which means an early alarm, and that my bags better be packed before I go to…

30 Days of Life: Day 1

Today I start a little writing experiment…30 days of blogging about the stuff of life. I’ll write about things like faith, family, writing, the weather (Oi! Maybe you shouldn’t get me started about the weather here lately!) motherhood, identity, and anything else that comes to mind, or emerges as a part of life over the…

The One Verse That Re-Centers My Heart Every Day

Oh friends, it’s so easy to become distracted in this world of ours, isn’t it?  By what is right in front of us. By what is clamoring to be right in front of us. By all that is tugging at our hearts and minds, demanding our attention.  And that’s not even accounting for our kiddos…

Thoughts On My Years as a Mom

    On Saturday afternoon I grabbed a piece of paper and wrote this at the top:  “My Life As a SAHM”   (SAHM= Stay at Home Mom) I intended to brainstorm some quick thoughts and ideas that would succinctly summarize my experience as a mom over the last twelve years. I’m not sure what naïve…

When Your Morning Doesn’t Quite Go As Planned…

“Everything is falling apart…it’s all just going B…A…D!”  Those were the words of my 9-year-old as we struggled to pull our things together to get out the door by 7:15 a.m. this morning. I must admit, part of me agreed. A lot of the varying pieces of the morning felt a little ragged, all over…

40 Things I’m Grateful For!

  Since we’ve been the midst of long, unstructured summer days, which often don’t leave me much time for writing because I’m either trying to be intentional with my kids, cleaning up the hurricane mess that seems to sweep through the house every day, or putting out fights between my dear, sweet children (who sure…

Embracing Celebration!

My sweet husband threw me a 40th birthday party on Friday night, and what an event it was. I’m still reeling from the emotion of it…the gratitude for the time and energy that went into planning and pulling it off– Scott, my sister (who gets an MVP award for helping Scott!), my dear friend Jessie,…

On Turning 40…

  I’ve been thinking about this moment for months– the morning that I wake up and am no longer part of the 30’s club, but have been ushered into a new decade, seemingly against my will. It feels like I’m falling forward into forty without permission– my permission. Hey, wait a minute,  I want to…

Are You a Woman Overwhelmed by Life? Check out This Book Review!

        What a title, huh?!          Wow, that’s a book for me if I’ve ever seen one, I thought.         Overwhelmed? Messes? Finding God in the middle? Yup. Yup. Yup. Sounds like my life.        But, I wish it weren’t that way. I wish…

Dear Tired Mom in the Middle of Summer Vacation…

  Dear Mom in the Middle of Summer Vacation with Young Children At Home, Are you tried? I am. Are you wondering if you’re going to make it? Through the day? The week? Until September? Gosh, sometimes I wonder if I’m going to make it out at all. I often picture myself, in 15 years…
