For the Momma Who Needs to Know God Hears Her

I was in the middle of working on my first book to encourage moms when I received a text from my own momma. It was a photo of a page of her journal, and in her cursive handwriting was written, "I pray for the new baby that he/she would be a testimony to Your love and...

The Older I Get…

The Older I Get…

I am thirty-three years old. I am not yet where I'm going, but I'm also not where I once was. But here's the thing. The older I get the more I realize... I don't want a seat at every table. I don't want to be invited to the cool girls night out or the popular party. I...

What I Wish They Had Told Me Before I Had My Baby

For the Momma Who Doesn’t Know What She Feels

For the Momma Struggling with Comparison

My kitchen is not one where you’ll find much design inspiration. There isn’t a trendy tile backsplash or gray and white quartz countertop. The appliances are likely original to the house. And I’m guessing the faucet is too. This house is a rental, and while it doesn’t...
