Are you feeling stretched in every which way?  Do you wonder how on earth you will be able to sustain your life?  Yeah, me too.  Our fuel is limited, and we must make tough choices in where to use it. I have been reading a few of my favorite books written by my absolute hero, Max Lucado.  If you haven’t read any of his books, you simply must.  I promise you will be inspired and entertained all at once.  He has a brilliant way of sharing stories and teaching truths that resonate in my heart, as he ignites the fire of my faith...

Some of you may have noticed, I haven’t been ‘around’ the blogosphere.  I have been traveling and spending time with family, and will be off the grid for a few days.  I truly miss my beloved blog peeps and can’t wait to catch up when I return!  Over at 1Corinthians 13 Parenting, I recently shared a piece I wrote that has a lasting imprint on my heart and I want so desperately to always remember… His Bread. And yet He waits patiently. Watching His Bread. Out in the cold… And His children not fed. They...

Thanks to Rabia and Lisa’s Tuesday Ten link up today, I decided to go for the gold and reveal what is in my purse!   Now lets consider just a few things before you press the ‘play button’ shall we? *I haven’t cleaned out my purse since this past fall when I changed from my summer purse! *From what I found, I may have not cleaned it out entirely even then. *I am not a thief…  those ‘products’ were truly free, and they never specified how many I could take. Really! *I could not show myself in...

My  precious daughter… My heart crumbles into a million tiny pieces when you get into the car after school and tell me about your day… Your recesses spent alone because no one wanted to be with you. Not having a partner in class because no one picked you. Friends’ betrayal, rejection and abandonment… Constantly shifting and leaving you dismissed and un-chosen. You find your place in isolation. And the brutal reality of failing friends hits hard.   I’ve watched you navigate your way through this mess of vicious circles...

Today I am introducing you to a writer who has taken my breath away over and over again with her words…her powerful themes…and passionate messages.  Leah Vidal is a gifted soul, who blogs over at Little Miss Wordy.  If you haven’t received her profound gift via her blog, you will be happy to know that she also authored a beautiful book titled,  “Red Circle Days”. Oh my heart… “Red Circle Days” is one of those books you want to linger in for long.  I did just that.  One chapter slowly read, absorbed…processed…to...

The weight is heavy… hearts are broken, souls desperate.  These are the burdens I carry.  And release. I hear their cry…it’s everywhere, really.  All around us.  You know.  It’s probably in or around you too. -A precious teen girl at church sharing her secret of battling an eating disorder…ending up in the hospital three times and counting. -A beautiful friend with breast cancer who recently started her chemo… -A beloved and devoted woman discovering her mother’s cancer has come back infiltrating her body, weeks...

Prom season is fast approaching, and I know so many of my friends have daughters that will be anxiously preparing for their Prom!  My Cassidy is far too young for this gig, yet.  But dare I dream what she would look like years from now?  Dare I envision my beautiful girl draped in elegance and clothed in dignity?  Indulge me, would you? JJsHouse contacted me to share their site, and as I marveled at the beauty of the Prom dresses with dreamy eyes, I wondered… “What will she be like, years from now?” Will she be wise and...

Devotional Diary:  I am Giving Up the Lies for Lent I’ve never given up anything for the Lenten Season…I’m not sure why.  Maybe because I haven’t fully embraced the mission of its purpose.   And I should.  I know I should.  But I think much of what people give up for God, is in some way not enough.  Maybe I have always believed there is nothing I could possibly give up for God that would be enough.  Enough to equal the Grace He pours on to me.  If I were to try, I am destined to fail. I realize now, that this very thought...

Today I am honored to share a piece of my heart and a part of my soul, over at Shell’s place- Things I Can’t Say.  I have known Shell for some time, and she is a force to reckoned with in this grand blogosphere!  I adore her series and link up that captures the hearts of many and pours them out into a community of beautiful supportive bloggers- Pour Your Heart Out has a mission worth following.  Shell always writes with authenticity about life as a mother, woman and friend.  I love that she is real and honest and true-and...

Jenifer Jernigan is one of my new favorite authors.  I was introduced to her and her beautiful bible study through Inscribed, which is a lovely ministry full of incredible Christian writers.  I received Jenifer’s book, “Dive Deeper:  finding deep faith beyond shallow religion“- and I was hooked at the title immediately.  How many Christians do the ‘walk’ but don’t really ‘dive deeper’ to fulfill their relationship with Christ?  I can only imagine countless souls starved for God’s...
