My Crazy Life Isn’t Always Exciting, But Life Goes On

November 1, 2018

Life as a mother of four is rarely dull, but sometimes it’s less than noteworthy.

That’s the kind of week I’ve had. Yes, we are constantly on the go and there a million things going on, but none of them are really worth writing about. I have no riveting tales to share. And too often, that’s what real life looks like.

A Day In The Life

Our world has been pretty hectic lately. Between eye-doctor appointments, a sports injury, and my migraines acting up again, we have been to the doctor more times than I can count. But life goes on.

Between play practice, cross country, and band I have used more gas driving to and from the school than I know what to do with. But… life goes on.

I wonder… How many of you can relate?

Have you ever just been taking life one step at a time?

It seems like we are constantly on the go, but at the same time, it’s really nothing special. That’s where I find myself today anyways. So much to do, but nothing really worth writing about. But then there is Jesus, right there in the middle of it all…

My Biggest Mom Fail Yet

I forgot my son’s birthday. Like, completely spaced it. I knew it was coming. I had even bought him an early birthday present. But the morning of his birthday? Nothing. I woke him up, made him do chores, and sent him to school like…

Trust in God

Do We Really Trust In God?

It started out like any other day… I hit the snooze button multiple times, then finally drug myself out of bed. I visited with my husband who had already been awake for over an hour, taken kids to cross country practice, made coffee, and…

Simply Walking with Jesus Day In and Day Out

I got this knot in the pit of my stomach. I was overwhelmed by this feeling of failure. Like I could never do it on my own. Like I was going to fail. Our book, Candid Conversations was launching in less than a week…

Chronic Pain & Lukewarm Faith

Chronic Pain & Lukewarm Faith

Before my migraines started in July of 2017, I never really understood what the difference was between chronic illnesses and regular illnesses. I mean, pain is pain, right? Wrong. The difference is that chronic pain never stops. It keeps on hurting, after most people’s…

Do you believe in Jesus? If so... why?

Who Is Jesus & Why Does That Matter?

Who is Jesus to you? Or what do you believe about Jesus? That question (whichever way you word it) is probably the singular most important question we will ever answer. Yet many of us don’t put much thought into it. We believe what we…

I dropped the ball... again.

When My Mama Bear Instincts & Faith Collide

“Pass him! Pass him!! Pass!!! Him!!!!” I screamed louder and louder until my voice grew horse. The cross country runners were less than twenty yards from the finish line and closing and my boy was just inches from passing the runner in front of…

Opening The Door On The Good News About Jesus

As I closed the door I realized that I had failed again. The sweet ladies I had just told I wasn’t interested in what they were peddling had been nothing but kind. And I was dismissive. Worse yet, I had suggested I already had…

Only Jesus Can Heal The Pain In My Aching Heart

Have you ever thought you were over something and then found out in the worst possible way that you weren’t? That the pain was still very, very real? Maybe some wounds never fully heal. I guess I’ll just come right out and say it.…

The Other Side Of Church Hurt…

Someone in our church was hurting. It started as a difference of opinions. We were praying for guidance and there was a disagreement over where God was leading us. The one whose opinion wasn’t chosen for the final direction was hurt. What do you…

Little Eyes, Road Rage & Jesus

Last year, I was driving a couple of neighbor kids to school and had an eye-opening experience. The first day, while I was scowling and muttering unkind things in the direction of the car in front of me, they commented that they had never…
