The Words on My Domino

Ugh, this post. It's one that I write out of obedience to the Lord, but it's not pretty, y'all. I so want to be seen as beautiful and put-together, like we look in this photo: But the reality is that our family is a mess, in a lot of different ways. And I'm going to lay a bit of that out for you today. I went to the IF:Gathering conferenc…

Until All Are Free

I had the opportunity to attend the IF:Gathering in Austin this past weekend. It was incredible, because God shows up there in big ways. Every year one awesome organization is presented at the conference, and IF attendees are invited to partner together with the organization to be a part of what Christ is doing. This year's organization w…

Read in January 2016

January felt like a slow reading month, but I read some longer books and made progress on my endeavor to finish The Lord of the Rings. The Two Towers: Finally. Finished. My take on Lord of the Rings remains the same: I recognize it as excellent literature, but I just can't get into the story. One book of the trilogy left! A Path Appears,…

What I Learned in January

My feet are really size 11, not size 10. For a long time, I've worn size ten shoes, even though the flats pinch a bit and my toes hang over the edge of sandals. In the midst of decluttering my closet, though, I've forced myself to admit that I skip over choosing the too-small shoes in favor of the few that are actually big enough. Sigh. D…

Sunday Grace

Sunday mornings are often difficult, and yesterday was no exception. It was one of those mornings. As we needed to get everyone in the car, we had a big kid throwing a tantrum—a big, defiant, physical, kicking-and-screaming tantrum. Let me tell you, these are not fun with kids who are in bigger and bigger bodies. I had to step aside to av…

2016: Grow

This is a post written for the Compassion Bloggers Network. As always, we LOVE partnering with Compassion to release children from poverty in Jesus’ name. Will you consider sponsoring a child this year? Happy 2016! I always like to take some time at the beginning of the year to think and pray about the year ahead. In considering 2016, a…

What I Learned in December

We’re having a baby BOY! Up until this month, I was set on not finding out the baby’s gender. I thought a birth-day surprise would be fun after these long, nauseous months! Well, I’m far too much of an organizer and planner to actually wait on the surprise, so we found out that a baby boy is on his way! We had a great ultrasound with l…

Read in December/2015

Welcome to the end of 2015! First, I’ll share what I read in December. Unwrapping the Greatest Gift, by Ann Voskamp: I absolutely love this family Advent book. From Genesis into the New Testament, we got to see how God was preparing the Greatest Gift throughout all of history. The Greatest Gift, by Ann Voskamp: The grown-up version…

Green Light

First, a public service announcement: If you have a child between two and six years old, add this clock to the top of their Christmas list immediately. Or your list. Whatever. You’re welcome. We’ve used this clock since Emma was two, and it has been a real help in the early morning hours. The clock’s light stays red until the “alarm” tim…
