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.

How To Fight Self-Condemnation With The Gospel

October 20, 2019
how to fight self-condemnation with the gospel

After I dropped my kids off at school one-day last week, I was talking to my husband. I was telling him about the day before when I had been at the school dropping off some items the kids had forgotten. There was a substitute in the office and when she tried to verify what grade my daughter was in I couldn’t remember. I had a horrible migraine and I told her as much. I tried to laugh it off, but when I was relaying the conversation to my husband I told him I definitely wasn’t going to be winning any mother-of-the-year awards.

He didn’t laugh.

Instead, he said he wished I wouldn’t be so hard on myself. That he didn’t know anyone who could handle what I have been through as well as I have. (He is most definitely my biggest fan and number one supporter.)

The reason I remembered this conversation so well was because the day before I had actually published a blog post about self-condemnation.

Apparently it didn’t stick.

I needed to go back and read it again.

In it, I share three questions to ask yourself when faced with self-condemnation. And that’s just I needed.

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…

When It Rains It Pours – Grace and Truth Link Up

Our internet was hacked. We pay for 21 meg, we were getting like 0.2. Someone else was eating up the rest of it. After figuring out what was wrong, I changed the password and the problem was solved… Then my husband’s computer that has…

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…

Why I’m Not Choosing One Word This New Year

Years ago the trend began. Every year people are encouraged to pick one word for the new year. One word to guide them through the coming year. One word that describes the type of year they want to have, or a personality trait they…
