As an ordinary Christian, sometimes I can feel discouraged that somehow I am inadequate to spreading the Gospel’s good news. Surely pastors, preachers, clergy, and those employed by the church are more qualified to share about Jesus, right? Wrong! When I get into that mentality, I am ignoring the types of people that Jesus called to follow Him and be his disciples. If He called … Continue reading How Far Does Your Ripple Spread?

Having viewed multiple options, I felt specifically called by God to go to a fashion school … Continue reading It Just Takes One

If we spend too long on social media or are simply looking at the wrong things, we start to become envious of other moms in how they look, what clothes they wear, their tidy homes, perfect-looking moments with their children—at least what appears so … Continue reading Mama’s Worth and Value
Everything was on schedule—a roast chicken dinner was about to be served, the next day’s cottage pie dinner was being prepared, and the last load of weekend laundry was happily spinning away in the washing machine. We were about to sit down at the kitchen table when I heard an unrecognizable beeping noise coming from the utility room. My load of laundry had stopped mid-cycle … Continue reading A Laundry Lesson
Slowly and unenthusiastically, I walked up the path to the log cabin at the back of our yard. I opened the door and was instantly reminded that it had been so long since going into our gym room, with spiders leaving their webs in all the corners. Before lacing up my dusty sneakers, I even checked inside of my shoes just to look out for … Continue reading Taking Care of the Body God Has Given Me
