You Want Me To Do What

“You Want Me To Do What?!” Following God When It Doesn’t Make Sense

Friday, August 25th, 2017

I’ve been writing here for over four years now. I’ve covered many aspects of life as a Christian mom and wife. We’ve laughed and cried. Some people have left and many new have arrived. (Yes, I like that it rhymed. No, I didn’t plan it.) Usually, I know the end of the story when I…

The First Time I Met An Angel

Sunday, August 6th, 2017

The first time I met an angel, I was at an elementary school field trip attended by nearly the entire Oklahoma City metro area. Multiple schools from multiple districts had sent busloads of students to the event center. I honestly can’t remember anything about the program except some guy standing on stage, singing about er-er-er-erosion…

Truth For the Woman Who Feels Like She’s Sinking

Wednesday, August 2nd, 2017

It was windy that night. I’m not sure how windy. The story doesn’t say. Scripture just says the boat was already some distance from land, battered by the waves, because the wind was against them. You know this story. It’s the one where Jesus (and Peter) walk on water. Remember? Jesus’s disciples are in a…

When You Feel Like There’s Nothing You Can Do…

Wednesday, July 15th, 2015

This page is a place of grace. It is a place of love. It is a place where we listen as mothers and as women to the truth of the Father spoken over our lives. It’s safe here. Your heart… it is safe here. So often we discuss the realities of motherhood. So often we…

Why I Let My Son Draw in the Dirt at His T-Ball Game

Tuesday, June 16th, 2015

  This is my son. He is five years old. He loves Legos, pretending to be any form of super hero, and whatever “screen time” I will allow him. He sleeps with a special blanket. He would eat his weight in sweets if I were to let him, and he loves Jesus like a friend.…

For Those Who Won’t Be Home For The Holidays

Saturday, December 20th, 2014

On the other side of the world, there is a soldier defending freedom. He has been gone for many days. Each one a sacrifice. Each one pressing a little harder against the already sore place in his heart. He longs for home. Home full of love and safety and security. And while each day is…

ADVENT Day 3

Wednesday, December 3rd, 2014

Last year, I took my sweet two year old girl shopping with me for Christmas decorations. What we got was more than we expected. We were in the middle of the chaos of people rushing and grabbing and fussing and doing just about anything to get their hands on the last great deal. As we made…

It’s Okay.

Wednesday, November 5th, 2014

It’s not your fault, you know.   It really isn’t. No matter how many times you have thought it. No matter how many times someone told you. It’s not your fault. You know exactly what I’m talking about. Don’t you? You know exactly what your “it” is. It is that thing that hangs over your…

A Place at the Table

Wednesday, October 8th, 2014

My heart races. My palms sweat. I’m face to face with one of my worst fears. No, I’m not talking about snakes or spiders or even being kidnapped. I’m in the middle of a crowded lunch room surrounded by people that I do not know without a place to sit or a friend in the…

Somewhere There Is a Woman…

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

Somewhere there is a woman rocking a baby in the middle of the night. She is exhausted and tired, and as she rocks back and forth, she cries silently into his curly hair. His head tucked up under her chin, his chubby hands holding onto her, she holds him tightly and prays, “Lord, make me…

What Millennials Really Want from Church

Monday, September 29th, 2014

I am a millennial and I grew up in church. I lived church. Some of my earliest memories involve Sunday School lessons and nursery friend playdates. Some of my oldest friends to this day I made in church over 20 years ago. I have a ton of “behind the scenes” memories of the inner workings of…

Raising Hope: How We Are Changing the World

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014

“I don’t want to play with her anymore!” “Bubba,” I calmly corrected, “It’s not nice to tell your sister that she can’t play with you. Can you please scoot over and let her play on the other side with her toys too?” Tears streamed down my daughter’s face as her brother’s words sunk into her…

What I Need My Kids to Know About Finding “The One”

Thursday, August 7th, 2014

When I met your Daddy, there weren’t any sparks. Things didn’t move in slow motion, and we didn’t lock eyes while music played in the background. Actually, that’s not true. The mall always has music playing… but it wasn’t some romantic ballad. It was just a regular Wednesday at work. I worked at a kiosk…

You Matter, Friend

Thursday, July 31st, 2014

I like to pretend that we are friends you and me. I hope that you do too. I imagine that you read these words while you sit at your desk or perhaps as you take a break from folding laundry. I imagine that you read them late at night when the house is quiet –…

Somewhere There is a Nurse

Monday, July 14th, 2014

Somewhere, there is a nurse. She left her family in the early hours of the morning, and came to take care of mine. She has been on her feet since before I was awake, and she will keep working tirelessly until the end of her day… even if that means working throughout the night. After…
