No Happiness

The alarm  sounded at 4 am. I woke up to this feeling of being completely lost. It wasn’t because of a strange dream or prior conversation. I just felt unaware of what I was really doing with my life and emotional well being. I don’t know exactly when I lost my happiness, but it was […]

The Greatest of These – A Mother’s Love

Ezer Kenegdo

It was the summer of 2003. Pulling into the old wooden shed after work one evening, I had a thought. Often I shove my thoughts aside, but in this case I knew it wasn’t me. I felt His whisper upon my heart to look up. Look up? Well that is odd. I parked my car […]

How to Be a Mom

I was scrolling through Pinterest looking at ideas for a project when I saw a title that stopped my finger from scrolling further down. It said How to be a Good Mom. I thought, “huh, that’s interesting. I had no idea there was a special formula for this. Wish someone would have told me sixteen […]

Marriage and ALL the Goes with It

We had an argument recently. Not even really an argument. I went to talk about an idea that has been soaking deeper and deeper within to my husband. I just wanted to talk and share what God was leading me to dream and think of. I just wanted him to listen and give me a […]
