Be Very Careful How You Live

There are some lyrics to a popular song that resonate with me every time I listen to them. They remind me that I must be very careful how I live.  I am quite certain that their meaning is different to the writer and singer, but they still cause me to stop and ponder.
Look, if you […]

Be The Light

This blog began on my 40th birthday, and now my 45th birthday has passed. I don’t lament getting older, but these landmark birthdays do cause me to stop and evaluate. On my 40th birthday, I got the best gift. I got a Savior, a faith that has seen so very much in the past 5 […]

If you are paying attention to the state of relationships in the developed world today, you cannot help but recognize our utter failure to “stay in love.”

How Do You Heal a Broken Marriage?

The moment is captured in my memory in vivid detail. It was night–time around New Years in 2010. We lived in the country and had windows all along the back of our house. I sat by myself staring out the windows into the night knowing I was utterly alone.

Is Hunting Selfish?

There are blog posts that I write, that just beg to be written. I almost can’t avoid writing them and this is one of them. I am desperately afraid this will come out wrong. I am afraid that this will seem selfish or like a sense of entitlement on the part of my husband. And […]

Jesus Is Still Awkward

Maybe that seems disrespectful, maybe even rude, but I don’t mean it that way.

We all want comfort, right? If something is uncomfortable, we assume it isn’t right.

Just like marriage, we want it to feel natural and not take a lot of effort. It is supposed to be a dreamy, easy relationship.

A Storm is Coming

A storm is coming. Can you feel it? It’s the kind of storm where the clouds are a mysterious gray color and they are moving so magnificently that you almost want to watch them because you know something amazing is going to happen.

It’s the scene out of a movie. Not only can you see it […]

How a Life Verse Can Bring Focus to Your Life

I don’t think a lot about dying.  It is a subject we all want to avoid, right? But the reality is that we all face it. The reality is that I might face it in 10 minutes, 10 days, 10 years or 40 years. We don’t know, do we?

And since we don’t know, it is […]

You Were Created For Such A Time As This……..

And who knows but that you have come to royal position for such a time as this.
Esther 4:14
Do you even know that Esther is a book in the Bible? I will be really honest, until a couple of days ago, I didn’t. And this is coming from someone who loves her Bible. It’s one of […]
