Life isn’t always sunshine and skittles. Christian women get that. We don’t just go to church because religion is cool. We know we need Jesus. Read my posts about christian living here.

Cultivating Gratitude Without A Journal

November 11, 2019
Cultivating Gratitude

We are all created unique. So it should be no surprise that we all go about cultivating gratitude in our own way… right?

Probably not, actually.

I think it’s part of the comparison trap.

I actually wrote about it at the end of last year when I confessed I was going against the flow and not choosing one word. Some women love picking a word, it works for them. Others felt relief when they found out that they weren’t the only ones who struggled with the whole, “One Word” thing.

Which is why I’m going out on a limb again to confess my complete and utter failure with my gratitude journal.

You can read all about it in my post over on Candidly Christian.

But I don’t just share my failure. I also share my success. Because I’m not an ingrate. Honest.

In fact, cultivating gratitude is something I do work on. I share three ways I have found that work for me in my post. So check it out.

Life Isn’t Fair… So What Do We Do About It?

“If you get home and I’m not there, your work shirt is in the dryer and I am at the hospital.” Life isn’t fair. That’s the thought that crossed my mind as soon as I sent that text to my son yesterday. It was…

How To Fight Self-Condemnation With The Gospel

Can Chronic Migraines Cause Memory Loss?

Can chronic migraines cause memory loss? If you’ve ever had a headache, you probably know they impair your ability to think clearly. Migraines make that ten times worse. As someone who has had a migraine for over two years (not exaggerating), I knew my…

Exposing Our Temptation To Sin & What To Do With It

I’m blogging over on Candidly Christian today about our temptation to sin. About our temptation to justify it. I mean… sometimes our struggles aren’t really wrong, right? The Bible never said drinking soda was a sin. Yet, my doctor (and my husband) both told…

Oh No He Didn’t! …When Mother Doesn’t Know Best

The off-handed comment was followed by laughter as the two guys exchanged looks. The only purpose to that remark could have been to rub salt in the wound and I could feel the anger building in my teenage son who was standing next to…

Grace and Truth for Your Quiet Time

When my twins were little finding some one-on-one time with Jesus was… well, difficult to say the least. Quiet time? That was almost laughable. I had four children ages five and under, so I learned to work with what I had. But I definitely…

Confessions, Faith, Struggles, Failures, and Hope… Oh My!

It’s candid and it’s Christian. It’s Candidly Christian TV. In John 16:33 Jesus said, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” Th...…
