Write it on My Heart

Friday, March 14th, 2014

I spent most of my late high school and early college years searching. I wasn’t searching for myself. I wasn’t searching for the purpose of life. I was simply desperate to find the plan of God for my life. I would often pray, “I’ll do whatever you ask me to, Lord. Please just give me…

I Will Always Be Your Mommy

Thursday, March 13th, 2014

A few nights ago, my son was upset that I wouldn’t tell him one more bedtime story. As I walked down the hall to take my daughter to her room, my son shouted, “Well, I’m not going to be your little boy anymore.” I knew he was upset, but his first real attempt to hurt…

Just Don’t Let Me Fall, Daddy

Friday, March 7th, 2014

It rained on my wedding day. I’m not talking about a nice little shower to christen the day. I’m talking Oklahoma downpour with flash flood warnings and power outages. When the lights flickered as I was getting ready at the church, I wasn’t concerned. When the lights went out for a few minutes before the…

Please Don’t Tell Me I’ll Miss This – Today That Isn’t Helping

Thursday, February 20th, 2014

When my daughter was little (about 9 months) we called her my little koala baby. Imagine Momma Koala going about her day climbing eucalyptus trees and munching on leaves all while Baby Koala is along for the ride. Translate that into human activities, and you have a pretty clear picture of about six months of…

Dancing in the Difficult

Thursday, February 13th, 2014

“You sure have your hands full.” I was busy keeping my nearly 4 year old from pulling all of the Hot Wheels cars from the display rack next to the checkout and calming my overtired two year old. “Every day, sir. Every single day.” I barely glanced up at him, but it was long enough…

Letters From Miss Lynn: What We Need to Hear the Most

Tuesday, February 11th, 2014

When I was in the first grade, I had a Sunday school teacher named Miss Lynn. Twenty years later, I wish that I remembered more about her. She was absolutely worth remembering. I have a fuzzy picture in my heart of a tall slender woman likely in her 50’s or early 60’s. Her soft grey hair…

Just Because Jesus Loves You – The Challenge

Monday, February 10th, 2014

Last summer, my husband and I went to a city a few hours away for an appointment with a doctor. It wasn’t a city we had ever visited together, and it was going to be a rather long trip with our two little kids, but it was one of those times where I just felt…

Sometimes Great Faith Just Means Standing Up

Tuesday, January 21st, 2014

I came back into the living room from hanging up clothes, and there he was, curled up in a ball covering his eyes behind our couch. His face was pressed to the carpet and his little four year old booty was up in the air. “Umm. Sweet boy, what’s wrong? What are you hiding from?”…

A Child’s Safe Return: A Father’s Reckless Love

Tuesday, January 14th, 2014

There is a picture that hangs in my parent’s living room. It is a picture of the prodigal son’s return, one of my dad’s favorite sermons. I know the story well. I know that the father of the prodigal son was thrilled, joyful, even relieved that his son had returned home. But it wasn’t until…

Why God is Unimpressed With Your Sin

Saturday, December 28th, 2013

The least important thing about you is how you sin. Of course, this is not what the majority of Christians will tell you. Lots of Christians like to label. They want you to know exactly where you stand in the eyes of God and the Church based on your actions. Unfortunately, the two don’t always…

God With Us – Even After Christmas

Thursday, December 26th, 2013

“Where were you, momma?” Tiny hands grab either side of my face as I bend down to pick up a few toys. She demands my attention, and I give it to her freely. “Momma and daddy went on a quick trip. Remember? We just had to pick up a few more presents in New York…
