How Deep the Father’s Love

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

Listening in the Spirit

A few years back, I really fought a battle between knowing what was the voice of the Holy Spirit convicting me of sin, and leading me to repentance and what was the accusatory voice of the enemy, trying to keep me living in guilt of the past and hinder my spiritual growth in Christ. In … Continue reading Listening in the Spirit

Please Excuse my Sporadic Posts…

...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…

Struggling with Joy

A lot of spiritual lessons culminated for me today, only after I had the emotional breakdown, of course. We've got mold issues. And I've got some intense allergies to mold of any sort. So that, and hormones, and not having felt baby for a few days, and missing the closeness of family, and my husband … Continue reading Struggling with Joy

How I Tackle Scripture Memory

I have a knack for memorization. I was a theatre major in college, so I've memorized innumerable lines of frivolous plays and musicals that have no eternal significance in my life whatsoever. But Scripture memory is how we equip the sword of the Spirit, and how we offensively counter the flaming arrows of the evil … Continue reading How I Tackle Scripture Memory

Oh, the Brokenness

Let me just start this one off with the warning that it contains semi-zealous ranting. I was washing dishes and got to the beaters for my hand mixer...my 10 year old hand mixer... that's seen a LOT of action in 10 years... we're talking Lebkuchen dough, folks. (Google it.) And one of the beaters just … Continue reading Oh, the Brokenness

Thoughts on Marriage: Christ First

The biggest takeaways from my 9 years of marriage have been monumental in strengthening my relationship with God and my husband, but none quite so much as the lesson that came in year 2. We had just moved to North Carolina where my husband was stationed at Camp Lejeune, as an 0811, field artillery cannoneer. … Continue reading Thoughts on Marriage: Christ First

Spiritual Warfare

It has been a MONTH! I tell you! Not only have my husband and I been striving to lean into Christ more than usual, we've faced opposition at almost every turn! We traded vehicles to significantly reduce our car loan debt. And it's like all the spiritual forces od wickedness decided to lay into us … Continue reading Spiritual Warfare

Humility and Obedience: My Experience with Christian Head Covering

I'll preface this post with a statement that it contains my personal convictions. A conviction is like an opinion, but with the added weight of Scriptural support and motivation toward heart change. As such, it is a matter of my personal relationship with God through Christ, and my best understanding of Scripture. I first began … Continue reading Humility and Obedience: My Experience with Christian Head Covering
