Lot of darkness this week… you might be wondering God, where were you? Where is the light. Sunday morning I woke up to push alerts on my phone about the shooting in Orlando. Seems like that’s how we find out about these things now. I went outside on my patio with a cup of coffee […]
Dear Single Mom, He sees you. He sees you stay up late to finish your laundry so your son has his favorite shirt to wear to school tomorrow. He sees you as you finish work, rush home to get your daughter to dance class, and collapse at night on the coach too tired to drag your […]

“Really?! She had to say #blessed with a picture of her Tiffany Pearls from her adoring husband? If I see one more anniversary photo captioned something about living life with my best friend and a #blessed I am deactivating my Facebook account!!!!” Woah, that was ugly! Those were my inner thoughts while sifting through my […]

She’s just a little girl. She is laying in a hospital bed waiting for a surgery that’s happening too late. Well, better late then never I guess. While she’s laying in that bed she’s thinking about what it will be like to finally be able to walk normally like all the other girls at school. […]

The life of a full time single mom feels like a constant struggle, like a track full of hurdles that you have to complete every day, and you start the race already tired. It’s like living on the edge of chaos every day. One slip, one hurdle knocked over, has a domino effect. Boom everything […]

Pigs are flying. I’m just saying. Somewhere, it’s possible that pigs have grown wings and are fluttering around like butterflies after what happened this weekend. It was my oldest daughter, Emily’s 10th birthday. She requested a manicure party at home. Now this sounds like a pretty easy thing, except a party at home means that […]

Maybe your Valentine’s day is full of red roses and boxes of chocolate. Or maybe it’s full of disappointment and apathy. If this is the case, I’d like to try to change your attitude about it. Here is an audio Valentine that might help. It’s a love letter to you from God. (Also my first […]

Hate that. We’ve all been there. Walking around not realizing you’ve got something gross on our face, until someone finally points it out. As soon as you discover it, you wipe off the offensive item (sometimes you need a mirror to get it right) and try to walk through your last hour wondering who else […]

Father, thank you for Dad’s! Today, we pray for the men you have charged with raising children… Lord, I pray you bring them your strength, your patience, and your endurance to lead their families to follow You. Keep them unwavering in their commitment to You and their families. God, for those that feel they don’t have a […]

Father, thank you for being the kind of God that understands our hurt and loves us through it. For You promise that You are close to the brokenhearted (Psalm 34:18). God, I know that You are with the Graves family who lost their 2 year old son Lane, in such a tragic way in Disney […]

Father. thank You for creating the ultimate version of love. I’m shocked that there’s nothing we can do to earn it, and there’s nothing we can do to loose it. My dream is to be a giant beacon of light that shows everyone that kind of love. Light a bat signal in the sky for you! So, how do I do […]

Father, during such heartache we wonder where are you?! Thank you for your promise that “The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.” (Psalm 34:18). I find it so comforting to know that when we are hurting you run to us, and you save us. God, run to those that […]

God, make me more confident. Not confident like it’s some kind of ego trip and I think I’m better than everyone else, but the kind of confident that is based on You. Your abilities are limitless. There are no boundaries for what You can do Your resources never run out. God, give me confidence that all […]

Father, Your word says “No one can measure Your greatness” (Psalm 145:3). All gifts that come from Your hand are out of Your deep abiding love for me. There’s nothing today that I can do to get God to love me any more or any less. So if Your resources never run out, your power is […]

Father, today help us honor all those that have given their lives for our country, help our actions to speak louder than our words. We ask that You bring Your complete comfort to the loved ones they have left behind. For You know what it feels like, You sacrificed Your own son for us. For, […]

Father thank you for your command to be strong and courageous, and immediately promising that You will go with us everywhere we go. Help us to remember today that it’s not just an option, or a good idea. You command us to do it. Like You command us not to worry, and not to be afraid. But, […]

God, thank you for never making me guess. You say that You will point me in the right direction, and even when I mess it up You have a way of making it right anyway. So with you there’s no such thing as failure. Help me to relax, not worry so much about the finish […]
