Turn your thanks into giving

As I listened to the women sitting across the table from me I couldn't help but be burdened by their conversation.  Words and stories flowing about all the mistakes they had made as young moms, and things they wish they would have known. The conversation ending with laughter and how much more wisdom ... Read More

You are not alone…

It’s Monday and before my eyes open to welcome in the beginning of the week the weight of the covers are slowly weighing me down as I think about some of the things going on in the community around me; people who I love dearly and the circumstances they have been dealt. My heart is heavy as I have ... Read More

Who Uplifts your Soul?

  Have you ever had one of those moments where you realize God has answered one of your deepest longings through the prayers you offered? I had this experience about a week or so ago as I sat across the table from a friend. A friend who two years ago I didn't even know, but because of ... Read More

Desperation….

Three months ago God called me to be honest. To write about my story in a way that left me feeling vulnerable and scared of what others might think. At the end of the day I knew obedience was all that mattered. I prayed that in some way, He would use it to bring women to Him. Out of that obedience I ... Read More

A radical prayer and Pure barre

Not very often do I feel like all my passions in life collide. This last week they have all collided- in a good way. My love for Jesus, writing, people, Pure barre, and Nordstrom have all been intermingled. This week I was given the incredible opportunity to write a blog post for Nordstrom’s ... Read More

A week with little princesses!

What a fun week it has been serving along side my sweet friend Laura who is pictured above. We have had a blast running “daughters of the King” this week and teaching girls from K-6th Grade about Jesus. We have spent the week immersing ourselves in everything pink, glitter, party dresses, makeup, ... Read More

Jesus before “momma”

Last week was a challenge as I battled health issues that won’t seem to go away while trying to be mom, wife, sister, friend, and a daughter. I tried to be everything for everyone. Any one who has tried this knows it doesn’t end well. To say the least there were fights, disappointments, tears, and ... Read More

He is enough…in my story

“When we honestly ask ourselves which person in our lives mean the most to us, we often find that it is those who, instead of giving advice, solutions, or cures, have chosen rather to share our pain and touch our wounds with a warm and tender hand. The friend who can be silent with us in a moment of ... Read More

I do not know you….

Recently I got the new Iphone 4S. I’m not much for fancy tools. I’m not the one who relies on my phone to do everything and keep my life organized. In fact, my husband often makes fun of me because I will call him frustrated because I am lost when all I have to do is type in the address of where I ... Read More

Alone

     My heart broke in two when I heard her say those three words that I knew all too well. She could barely hold her head up, tears streaming down her cheeks as she said it again, “I feel so alone”. As I looked into this young woman’s beautiful eyes all I could see was pain and desperation to get ... Read More
