Yesterday was a rough day for me. Let's flash back about 6 years. February of 2014. I had a doctor's appointment (on my birthday) with my new PCP hoping to gain some insight on my unidentified chronic illness. Instead of listening to my complaints, taking into account my personal history, or treating me like an … Continue reading Be Still My Soul
Today was good. Saw a good friend, the kids played, she brought me cupcakes, complimented me on my freshly acquired motherly figure (and I hers, because our due dates are like 5 days apart 🤣) y'all, everybody needs a friend like that. She refreshes my soul, and I hope I do the same for her. … Continue reading How Deep the Father’s Love
Something has been on my heart for ages now, so I'll just throw it out there. It is my firm belief that the Church should focus more on marriage anatomy. What do I mean by that? Not anything related to marriage equality- that's a different conversation. Christians need to teach and learn the anatomy of … Continue reading Covenant Marriage
They finished work on the basement today. Walls torn out, mold is gone, sump pump installed, ducts cleaned, and home fumigated. We were just starting to feel joyful at having come through that challenge that rocked me physically, financially, and emotionally, when our AC went out. People, I'm 17 weeks pregnant. I was finally getting … Continue reading Simple Reminder
...I wonder how many posts I've written that begin with, "Oh my goodness, it's chaos around here..." I'll look into it. That's research I don't have time for at the moment. Update with the mold issue: I haven't been back down to the basement since I realized just how allergic I am to mold. The … Continue reading Please Excuse my Sporadic Posts…
Good Monday morning! And good grief! I was up at 6am only to realize my 4 year old beat me to the kitchen, where he had already made the coffee, and gotten out the milk. I found out later he'd tried to start the day at 4am, but my husband put him back to bed... … Continue reading Crazy Busy!
Breastfeeding is beautiful. Because a woman's body is beautiful. And a woman's bond to her child is beautiful. Because God made it to be beautiful in both form and function.
Well, We'll be expecting #4 in January 2020! A few thoughts on this pregnancy so far: This was the first time my reaction to a pregnancy was only excitement. No fear, no anxiety, no worry- just peace and excitement for this new little person. I think I'm getting more mature, guys. Holy nausea, Batman! I … Continue reading A Quiver Full
Let's go way on back to 2010... My husband and I got married that April, on a Wednesday morning, at the county courthouse. No, it wasn't a shotgun wedding, we just really wanted to be married, and unfortunate family circumstances led to us choosing super low-key elopement over the formal church wedding I had spent … Continue reading Transitioning to Stainless Steel
I am brand new to this whole "pastor's wife" role. Frankly, it's incredibly awkward. Mostly because my husband is not yet a pastor. He's still in the process of finding work as a vocational minister, either in chaplaincy, youth ministry, or worship ministry. It is his calling- undoubtedly. Every time I hear him speak, I … Continue reading The Awkward Side of Vocational Ministry
