Love requires work…

Love doesn't come free, it isn't cheap and easy. True love requires hard work and sacrifice. True love doesn't 'love' expecting something in return. Love is gracious, kind and caring. It does not boast of its own achievements. It is not prideful or arrogant. Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; [...]

A Fathers Love

This month being the month of love, I am focusing on how we can love others more and how the Fathers love impacts our everyday lives. February is the month my father was born and every year we love to get together as a family and celebrate him. The only difference is that he is [...]

Just be content…

"Can't you just be content with what you have?" I was having a conversation with a loved one this week. Okay well it was more of a heart to heart than a conversation. I was letting it all out. I was miserable. I felt completely inadequate. I felt like that because I don't have what [...]

Whatever you do, work at it with your whole heart!

You are serving the Lord Christ.  Colossians 3:23-24 (ESV) Whatever it is that you are currently working on, whether it be something grand or something that feels mundane. Do it [...]

But stay with me on this one... I believe that sometimes God allows us to fail at something temporarily to save us from failing permanently. This [...]

New Year, New Me…

New year, new me...as 2015 has come to a close and 2016 is just beginning, it is easy to get caught up in the hype of the fresh start. Often times we make crazy and unrealistic goals. I'm not saying that crazy goals are necessarily a bad thing, we need to stretch and grow and [...]

A life worth living…

On the weekend we celebrated our baby girls 1st Birthday! We went all out to celebrate Miss I turning one and making it to that all important milestone of surviving the first year!  Everything was perfect and I think everyone enjoyed themselves!! But once it was all over it gave me time to stop and [...]

What does devotion mean to me?

The overwhelming feeling of being wound up…

Some days I feel so wound up like a Jack in a box ready to pop! Those are the days where even the simplest of tasks feel overwhelming and incredibly daunting! Where my mind is racing a million miles an hour thinking about all the things I need to do, but my body just seems [...]
