I Never Thought I’d Be Here Again

Wednesday, June 27th, 2018

“I have been in seasons of my life when it seems like the sun will never rise, when the darkness lingers, and when the warmth of the morning light seems unreachable. There have been seasons of my life when I believed the darkness and fear boasted of its success. But those seasons do not last…

Why We Moved to Los Angeles

Saturday, December 16th, 2017

I was standing at my kitchen sink in February, making dinner (but first cleaning the dishes from all of the other meals and snacks of the day)… when I heard Him. “When the offer comes in, take it and go.” I looked around the house. There was worship music playing in the background. The kids…

God Used 5 Minutes of Awkwardness & Bravery

Saturday, December 16th, 2017

If Oklahoma taught me anything, it was how to be friendly. As it turns out, being friendly is super important when it comes to meeting new people and making new friends in a town 1200 miles away from home. We are in LA now. That’s not Louisiana either if you were wondering. No, we moved across…

The Miracle at 10:36 AM

Sunday, July 9th, 2017

  10:36 I was praying the day before I was scheduled for surgery, and I heard the words, “10:36.” It wasn’t like I was on my knees in prayer and petition. I was cleaning my house and going about my business… just thinking and talking to God in my heart. 10:36 It wasn’t like a…

Just Outside of the Shot

Monday, June 5th, 2017

I said to my friend, RM Photography: “Just make sure it looks like you caught us talking sweetly to each other. I really like the light in here. This one angle of my bedroom looks like it could be on Pinterest, so can you take photos from only this angle? Also, make sure you don’t get…

Master Bedroom Reveal

Monday, September 5th, 2016

Our master bedroom was way overdue for an update, so last week I decided to try and create a DIY faux shiplap accent wall. I have a love of all things farmhouse, and my husband has a love of all things comfortable. I think our room is the perfect combination. (Now if I can just…

“Easy” DIY Faux Shiplap Wall Tutorial

Monday, September 5th, 2016

Before I start, I need you to know something. This wasn’t easy. All of those tutorials that call walls like these easy… those people are speaking from the finish line. The “let’s stand back and enjoy our hard work” position of the project. My disclaimer is this: In the middle of this project (that I…

Anyone Else Tired of Hiding Their Mess?

Friday, May 23rd, 2014

When we built our house on the edge of town a few years back, we knew that we would eventually have neighbors on our street, and we looked forward to hopefully having another young family in the area. When that sweet young family built and moved in, I wish that I could say I ran…

For All the Times You Made It…

Tuesday, May 6th, 2014

A long line of children filed onto the risers. I followed the blonde haired girl in front of me, and turned as we found our place on the front row. The front row is, of course, reserved for the shortest (and best) singers in my opinion. I made a quick scan of the crowd. It…

In the Morning… When I Rise

Wednesday, April 30th, 2014

“Mooooooooma!” A wild-haired, sleepy-eyed, nearly 3 year old calls to me from her room. “Mooooma! I’m awake! Come get me!” “Shhhh, baby girl! I’m coming! Bubby is still asleep!” “Momma! I’m awake too!” a groggy second voice echoes down the hallway. “Well, Bubby was still asleep.”  I mutter under my breath. Light floods in from…

To the Lonely Mommy

Tuesday, April 29th, 2014

I guess I just didn’t understand how someone could never be alone and yet still feel so… lonely. I remember the day that I quit my job. It was in the back of my heart, but I wasn’t quite sure that that I would go through with it. When my son was born, there was…

Broken Mirrors

Wednesday, April 23rd, 2014

Every morning, (well, the mornings that I actually put on makeup) I use a handheld mirror to look at myself up close. This is usually my last step. I’ve put on the foundation and color and plucked and curled and touched-up, and when I think I’ve gotten everything just as it should be, I pick…

Oh, Darlin’, It Doesn’t Have to Be So Hard

Monday, April 21st, 2014

“I don’t know what the difference is… or what changed… but you moms seem to have so much more pressure on yourselves than we ever did.” It was such a short conversation, but I have been thinking about it for weeks. What has changed between her generation and mine? What makes us feel like we…
