Hope for the Holidays

It's common knowledge that the holidays are generally a happy time. "The most wonderful time of the year," they say. But sometimes it can be a very painful, hard time for people. I just wanted to give a quick reminder that even though this season can be painful for many of us, Christmas is the… Continue reading Hope for the Holidays

Motherhood– Worth It

For as long as I can remember, I've wanted to be a mother. When I was six, my sister and I used to fight over who got to be Addie's (our baby sister's) "mommy" that day. When I was ten, two brand new babies entered the family... and it was wonderful to get the experience… Continue reading Motherhood– Worth It


Promises: Fulfilled and Awaited

I suppose everyone's tired of Christmas by now. Maybe no one wants to hear me ramble on about Christmas one more time. "Christmas is over," you're all saying. "Move on with your life." But this post isn't strictly about Christmas, so here goes. (Actually: I wrote this post on Christmas morning and never got around… Continue reading Promises: Fulfilled and Awaited


God With Us

There are only nine days until Christmas. It is officially Christmas time! (Like, seriously... my sister's been counting down the days for literally three months. But still.) But just because it's Christmas time doesn't mean that our troubles will really go "miles away," like the song says. Some of us aren't feeling very merry this year.… Continue reading God With Us

Our family also happens to… Continue reading Too Busy— A Familiar Story

Something to Remember About Thankfulness

For various reasons, I didn't do my regularly scheduled post yesterday. I hadn't thought much of it until, earlier today, I got an email from my sweet friend asking what happened to yesterday's post. So, for her sake and hers alone (just kidding...), here it is. Better late than never, right? 🙂 All day I've been… Continue reading Something to Remember About Thankfulness

4 Things to Remember This Veteran’s Day

Today is Veteran's Day. Today is the day we honor those who have served in our military. Both my grandpas were in the military. My dad's dad was in the Air Force, and  my mom's dad was a colonel in the Army. Both sacrificed a lot for their country. Their families sacrificed, too. My great-grandparents were… Continue reading 4 Things to Remember This Veteran’s Day


Halloween to the Glory of God

We used to celebrate Halloween. I've dressed up as everything from a doctor to a ballerina to Snow White. One year my sister wanted to dress up as a pink popsicle. My mom made her a costume out of felt, and she was adorable. But now... We've rethought Halloween.  I figured Halloween would be on… Continue reading Halloween to the Glory of God
