More Dangerous Than Competition

A few months ago, I tackled the idea of women and their constant competition with one another. We love to make sure that we are doing okay by comparing ourselves and our abilities to others. We do the silent smile and size up while making hasty judgments of women we don’t know anything about. Since…

If My Children Do Not Grow Up in Church, I Have Not Failed Them

Growing up, I learned well the system of church. Some of my earliest memories involve Sunday School lessons and nursery friend playdates. Some of my oldest friends I made in church over 20 years ago.  My parents were usually on staff at the various churches we attended, and I have a ton of “behind the…

Instead of an Excuse – A Prayer

It isn’t even 10 AM, and I have already lost it. I have fussed with my kids and lost my cool about the simplest of things. I am running behind, feel overwhelmed and have misplaced all of my frustrations on those whose hearts trust me. I have not been a safe place for my husband…

My Husband Does Not Complete Me

My husband does not complete me. No matter how hard he will ever try, no matter how much I want him to, or expect him to, it is not my husband’s job to complete me. I was created to be completed by God. [edit – this was not included in the original post] Not very…

Bless My Crumby Life

Red light. I reached behind my seat to pick up a fallen straw. It came back with a half-eaten sucker and goldfish dust stuck to it. Gross. I glanced into the backseat.

One Step Forward

I am not a sporty girl. I know you are shocked, aren’t you? I totally had you fooled. Alright. I know it doesn’t come as much of a surprise. This girl has never played any organized sport. Ever. I did happen to briefly sneak my way onto a cheerleading squad for a few years, but…

You Cannot Keep Leaves on Trees

I opened the driver’s side door and climbed out of our SUV. I was met with the fresh smelling breeze of an Oklahoma March. It was my favorite time of year. I opened the back door and unclipped my son’s clunky car seat from its base. His three month old grin was still new, but…

Hiding in Plain Sight: A Reminder

If you believe Jesus is the Son of the living God, then you must also know that there is a very real enemy of our souls. He has one simple goal: to lure our hearts away from God. The Word of God says that our enemy wants to kill, steal, and destroy us and everything…

Jesus in the Mess

It was Thursday afternoon just after lunch… I was busy clearing half-eaten chicken nuggets and cheese sandwiches from the table. My dishwasher was full of clean dishes that needed to be put away and my sink was full of dirty dishes that needed some serious attention. Sandwich crusts, bread crumbs, empty cheese wrappers, and juice…
