Today has been terrible. The kids sneaked about 100 Hershey's kisses (which we had hidden and don't typically even keep in the house!) Just minutes before I was able to get up with them and start on their morning routines. Their ingenuity is actually impressive, albeit infuriating. They configured a way to use a rubbermaid … Continue reading Being Holy on Hard Days
Next Sunday, April 7th, is my husband's and my 9th wedding anniversary. It's hard to believe we have been together for almost 11 years-- I'm not sure where the time went! (...well, about 4 years went to the Marine Corps) But as a sort of "fun" thing, I decided to share one lesson I've learned … Continue reading Thoughts on Marriage: Humility

I first began … Continue reading Humility and Obedience: My Experience with Christian Head Covering

The kids and I slept later than usual this morning- 7:15am! I know, outrageous. So I went to let … Continue reading Chicken Chasing!
"Know well the condition of your flocks..." Proverbs 27:23 I've been really convicted lately by my own pride keeping me from walking in God's will. The consequences have been emotionally devastating. I have a proclivity to make decisions in haste and then ask God's blessing on them without first seeking His guidance in the first … Continue reading Meet Our New Flock
I have a date. I have the date which will be our last in our current residence. What I don't have is a NEW residence. But, more important than that, I DO have faith in God to provide perfectly for my family and me just as he has done since I can remember. We have … Continue reading Moving Day
