I think that God created motherhood to show me how sinful and inadequate I am at being a good mother…and thus how much I desperately need Him and His grace. Because there is nothing more humbling than being a mother who feels like she’s not enough. Except for being a mother of a sick child. … [Read more…]
I’m currently a 25-year-old married woman and mother of one. This morning my son woke up at 5:45, but was scared to enter the hallway because the hall night-light was broken. He crawled back in bed and went to sleep. Unfortunately for me, I have a touch of a cold and cough and as much as … [Read more…]
I’ve had my “dreams and goals for 2013” post on my “blog posts to do” list for several months now. But when I sat down to start writing it a few weeks ago, I immediately scrapped it without saving. Eh, no one cares or needs to know that I want to be a better wife … [Read more…]
2012 What a year! That’s the only way I can think to start this post. I had no idea what I was getting into at the beginning of last year. All I knew is that my husband was finally coming home for good and that I was worried about things like reintegration and putting our … [Read more…]

This is the seventh year that I am celebrating Christmas after NOT celebrating at all for four years. And this year, I celebrate the birth of Christ with all of my heart.
I wasn’t planning on blogging today. But after an exhausting day working on Christmas projects together, I found myself sitting down to write. Russ had just taken our two year old son away…to I don’t know where, and I didn’t really care. I had been up since 6 am, and had already done quite a … [Read more…]
Peaceful morning. Ezra woke up around 0745. I stumbled out of the bedroom to brew coffee. While the water was heating, I found my Bible. Buried in a bag in the corner of the kitchen. After yesterday, I wanted to start the day off right. I set the Bible on the top of the dishwasher, … [Read more…]
