Moms, Here’s Our Christmas Game Plan Huddle

Saturday, November 25th, 2017

I can see you over there… trading out your regular anxiety and stress for festive holiday anxiety and stress.   The last of the turkey leftovers have been eaten, and it’s officially Christmas time.   Magical. Your neighbor’s Christmas lights are going up and so are the expectations you feel to make this season special…

When What’s Best For Your Child Doesn’t Make Sense to Anyone Else

Monday, August 14th, 2017

It’s nine o’clock AM, and I am sitting outside my daughter’s first grade classroom with my laptop open and my heart a little nervous. The school, built decades ago, isn’t setup like most. The classrooms open up to a central library. And while you might think that noise or distractions would prevent little minds from…

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…

Monday, July 31st, 2017

Dear friend, Let me start with this. It’s not just up to you to keep them safe. This week I read yet another article online highlighting one more way I need to protect my children from this world. As I made my way through one father’s terrifying narrative and his hopeless account of how he…

Hey Momma? If You Are Still Awake Read This

Sunday, July 2nd, 2017

Did you think it all over? – The day, I mean. Have you had a chance to replay all of your moments? To rethink your choices? To come up with half a dozen ways you could have or should have done it differently? Have you made promises for how tomorrow will be different? Tomorrow, you’ll…

My Husband Saved My Son’s Life Tonight – But it Could Have Ended Differently

Saturday, April 29th, 2017

That’s not a click-bait title. I honestly couldn’t think of anything better to call this article. This just happened… as in… less than two hours ago, and now that the kids are tucked soundly in their beds, I’m sitting down to process. Forgive me, because this isn’t a “days later” reflection. This isn’t an “I’m…

TV Has Been Waiting Decades for Jack Pearson

Tuesday, February 21st, 2017

It’s no secret that This Is Us is one of TV’s best new shows. Between the unique way of presenting one family’s unfolding story and the deeply relevant and relatable characters, This Is Us has many of us laughing one minute and crying the next. It is an easy show to love. But there is…

Every Christian Needs to See What Kevin Did on “This is Us”

Saturday, February 18th, 2017

If you’re anything like me, you send the kids to bed a few minutes early on Tuesday nights so that you don’t miss one second of the popular new show, “This Is Us” on NBC. (And if they’re not quite in bed when the clock hits 8:00 CST, you’re praising Jesus for your DVR or…

You Will Teach Your Children the Word Abortion

Tuesday, January 24th, 2017

We will all teach our children the word abortion someday. But what will we say about it? The conversation happened in the car. I can’t remember exactly why the abortion doctor’s name was mentioned… I think it had something to do with an article my husband and I had read in the news… but our…

For Every Wife Waiting For Her Husband to Change

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

I sat on the floor of my bedroom closet. “Why doesn’t he just get it!?” I cried to myself. We were fighting about something so simple, but my heart was overwhelmed by the list I had been keeping for nine years. Everything I wanted him to do differently, every attitude of his I wished that…

You’re Supposed to Love This

Sunday, October 23rd, 2016

There’s this ache that says, “You’re supposed to love this. You’re supposed to love this and be better at all of this. There’s probably something wrong with you. You need to figure it out. Get it together. Figure out how to make yourself enjoy it all more.” And you believe it. So you look around…

Holding My Husband’s Hand Changed Our Marriage

Friday, August 19th, 2016

I don’t know what last night was like for you. If you have kids, then my guess is… you might not have spent the entire evening/night alone with your husband in your bed. You probably didn’t go to sleep at a reasonable hour and wake up rested after experiencing zero disruptions. (And if you did,…

Monday, March 21st, 2016

I called my husband to ask him a quick question. I knew that he was busy at work, but I hoped my short conversation wouldn’t be too much of an inconvenience. I was wrong. He was right in the middle of an important project. My call had not only taken his attention, it had added…
