The Gift of You

The Story Behind our Gift

“If only I could tell myself then what I know now,” is an all too common phrase said by many. Sometimes our gifts are the stories we express to others- the words we would tell our younger selves. Continue reading

Joyful Sorrow

If you take a look at my last few blog posts, you’ll notice that they are product reviews, and the most recent heartfelt post was from March 2019. It was about my experience with the loss of my Mom. I told myself that I wasn’t going to let anything keep me from writing because Mom wouldn’t want me to stop.

But, I stopped. Continue reading

Mended: Restoring the Hearts of Mothers and Daughters Book Review

As I write this, my heart hurts. My heart hurts for the daughters that did not get the chance to reconcile with their Mamas before it was too late. My heart hurts for the daughters that maybe said something they wish they could take back or wish they could have said anything. Continue reading

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
