Leave it at the Cross

Have you ever wanted to be free, yet it seemed difficult to release the burdens or strongholds that were holding you captive? And, yet, you know that Jesus died on the Cross for our sins, our sicknesses, and our burdens. No matter how much you pray, repent, or forgive, it seems like an endless cycle that tires you, weakens you, and burdens you.  Continue reading

“Mama, Jesus is My Night-light”

A little while ago, I was reading Christopher his Bible devotion (I cannot remember what we were reading), but somehow we got on the topic of Jesus being the light of the world. I had explained to him how light reveals things that are hidden in the dark.  What Christopher said next was so heart-warming and true, “Jesus is my night light.” Continue reading

Tribal Identity, part two

Looking back in my life, I have seen many friends come, go, and stay in the story that God has created for me. And, what is even amazing is these individuals have played a huge part in how God has shaped who He wants me to become. Through our spiritual journey, that is when we learn God’s character through our season and through Him working through others.

Tribal Identity, part one

Every season brings or removes individuals from our lives as we further into our journey towards spiritual growth. Yet, as these changes occur, God reveals the much-needed fruit of the Spirit He offers freely to us. As He conducts these changes, our tribal identity becomes created by learning our God given identity, accepting the tribe God wants for us, and seeing God’s character through our seasons.

The Unseen Army Wife

My last post was many, many months ago, and life became busy- CRAZY busy- during that time. I barely had any time to talk to anyone but my mom, sister, and best friend. For those who are on the outside of the military life, showing kindness to military spouses and their families is the best thing a person can do. Sure, we “signed up” for the military life as some would say

Parenting with God

One question that God has revealed to me when I often feel overwhelmed mommying (that should be a word) is, “Are you parenting with Me?” Continue reading

Blessed Temper Tantrums

Just last night I thanked God for something that a mom would be shocked to even consider a “blessing.” I had thanked God for my son’s temper tantrums….Don’t get me wrong, I would PREFER not to have to deal with them. But, last night God put on my heart that through Christopher’s temper tantrums was a former prayer being answered.  Continue reading

To get an idea of me, I was just finished with this blog post and clicked the spell checker, and all of a sudden, my whole post disappeared. No idea how that happened. I guess that means I wasn’t supposed to post, haha. It was really good, too!!

Anyway, I wanted to share my thoughts on something that I realized and will make sense of the blog title.

God works in an endless number of ways to change us into the godly person we are meant to be. Continue reading

Implanted Blessings

 

I have always been open discussing my hearing impairment growing up, and this is a post that I never even dreamed that I would be writing- journey into the Cochlear Implant world. Continue reading

Blessed with a Strong Willed Child

 

I have to say that in my mind, I imagined myself “constantly” blogging. It had been a little over a week since my last post, and it seemed that life happened since then. And, to be honest, I cannot remember what’s happened since then, except for the fact that I became tired and felt defeated and “anti-social” says the gal who likes to talk a lot. Continue reading
