Hope After Miscarriage

It was a cool rainy September morning just like this one. On that morning, five years ago, hope was fading and fear was taking over my heart. I had been in agony for almost a week. My first appointment with my OB was not scheduled for another month, and I couldn’t get in to see…

Sweet Little Bride…

Dear 19 year old bride with love in your eyes… What a beautiful wedding day! It really couldn’t have been better.

Step 1.) Love God Step 2.) Love Others

This is becoming a trend in my life recently… and I love it. I was getting dressed a few mornings ago while God and I were having a little conversation. I will be honest. It was mostly me talking. He’s really gracious like that. He lets me talk and talk and talk and when I’m…

Harmful, Dangerous & Ignored

GOATHEADS A few nights ago my husband was dutifully mowing the backyard while the kids and I were playing on the back porch. My husband tells me over the roar of the mower… “I found the stickers.”  Here in NW Oklahoma, everything that will get stuck to your shoes, feet or clothing are called “stickers.”…
