“Praying Women” Book Review

“God is calling His warrior women to invest their lives in something that is bigger than themselves: the kingdom of God. These kinds of women give their lives to relentless prayer.” – Sheila Walsh, “Praying Women” If we’re honest, we’ve all had times in our lives where prayer has been a struggle. We may find […]

Mothering in the Mundane: A Call to Holiness

Remnants of breakfast muffins sprinkle the floor. Toys dance across kitchen counters as I appease hungry babes with slices of vegetables and bits of bread. I search for the holiness permeating the mundane. The transfer from ordinary into missional. It’s here. The call to more. Not to do more but to be more. To look […]

Pregnancy After Loss: Resting in Him

This is the face of someone who was riding the rollercoaster of “pregnancy after loss” emotions: excited and anxious, nervous and confused, joy-filled and overwhelmed.

It’s A…

I’m always skeptical of women who say their pregnancy “just flew by.” For me, each trimester is a slow plod forward.

Walking in the Legacy Left Behind

I want to walk in her shoes. I want to follow in her legacy. Rooting around in the bottom of my closet, I dug out a pair of black boots. I don’t know if I ever saw her wear them, but they were hers. They’re not a pair of shoes that I would have purchased […]

November 2019: Reading Challenge Reviews

We’re in the home stretch. There is now officially one month left in our 2019 Reading Challenge! And, I don’t know about you, but there is something very satisfying about getting these last few categories checked off. With the release of the 2020 Challenge earlier this month, many of us are already eagerly planning out […]

Caribou & Sage Clothing Review

When my first shipment of Caribou & Sage items arrived, I couldn’t get over how thick and luxurious the fabric felt. Soft and stretchy and so well made, it was nothing like the cheap t-shirts and flimsy fabrics I find at the store. This was my first foray into the world of handmade clothes and […]
