When I initially began writing this post, I wanted to remind, confront, convince my friends of how important we, as women, are in the world and in the church. I was then convicted by the Holy Spirit as He whispered to my heart, “Stop trying to legitimize your role, and JUST WALK IN IT.” Yes… Read More Happy International Women’s Day!
Miracles. It’s one of those things I see frequently happen to others, but never to me. I think a part of me had given up on the prospect, because maybe God requires me to live more by faith than by sight. I’m not sure this is logical. And while I know I’ve likely seen many… Read More God of Miracles
So Will I I’ve been listening to and singing this song at Hope for the past several weeks. No matter what I do, I just can’t seem to wrap my mind completely around the lyrics. That, I believe, is part of the wonder of God. In all of my spare time (haha), my friend Dave… Read More So Will I
I recently starting teaching a Kids Yoga Asana class. Oh my! It’s so much fun! We talk, we move, we laugh. Kids are just so receptive to learning new things. All four of my girls came to the last class, and they all loved it. I would strongly encourage you to get your children involved.… Read More Kids Yoga
I can’t remember when I started doing this, but I guess several years ago I began asking God to give me a word for each year, something to focus on, something prophetic that He wanted to speak over my life. In 2016, my word was “family.” That’s when we met Jessica and Stephanie and began… Read More Words
I’m sitting in my office pondering the things of God. November is Orphan Awareness Month. There are so many issues that have a month dedicated to awareness and action. Obviously, orphan awareness is close to my heart. My husband, Danny, and I always knew we would want to one day adopt children. We saw it… Read More Orphan Awareness Month
Life has been quite tumultuous lately. The escalating tension that builds in our home as we try to love and support two new children who didn’t know love or parents prior to stepping foot into our home is wearying. Combine that with increased responsibilities in ministry and life in general, it’s easy to feel like… Read More Peace Be Still
So much is unsettled in the world. Texas will be feeling the effects from Hurricane Harvey for a long time to come. Hurricane Irma will soon be bearing down on the state of Florida, where many of my friends are seriously stuck. The eastern coastline is at risk. I live in Upstate, SC, and our… Read More The Waves and Wind Still Know His Name
Rise Up, O Woman, Rise Up! We are dreamers. Believers. Worshipers. Dare devils. Warriors. We have been gifted by the Almighty. It’s us He’s entrusted with God-breathed life. We are the mothers. Raising our children in the fear and wonder of the Lord. Daughters. Sisters. We are chosen to make a mark on our world.… Read More Rise Up, O Woman, Rise Up!
It’s not a new song. It’s not an original song. But it has completely wrecked me. “Your love is proud to be seen with me.” How could this be? I’m not even proud to be seen with myself most days. There is a completeness to the Father’s love for us. 1 John 3:1-3 in the… Read More “Your Love is Proud to be Seen with Me.”
