My informal life stories...

Maturity, I’m finding, is looking at those bible stories you used to scoff at, commenting how ridiculous THOSE people were, and all of a sudden realizing you’re no different.
Eve, girlfriend, I would have eaten that forsaken apple sooner. I would have. I would have taken pride in my relationship with...Read Full Post »

Our last night in our home was hard. We moved all day long, weren't sure if the kids even ate, boxes were all over our new temporary home. It felt stressful and chaotic and we were all exhausted.
The next day was sweet though. So fun and so sweet. We gave so much away to our neighbors- the best neighbors in the world. A refrigerat...Read Full Post »

I have been battling this ridiculous cold / allergy issue again and it's driving me crazy. It comes and goes, and then when I think I'm finally over it, it shows up all over again and leaves me exhausted. For the last month I have had so much sinus pressure, on and off sore throat, etc. (Etc.= I'll spare you some nice details). My tension headaches have been gone for quite some time but hav...Read Full Post »

A year ago we entered through a door that left us in a vulnerable position. We didn't have a job or a plan, just conviction and a mustard seed of faith. My husband got one job, and then another after that, and I began working from home, (I got the better half of that deal!). Around that time we started to dream and pray. When all falls out from under you, you have two choices; see destruction or a blank...Read Full Post »

I wrote this blog months ago. It was during the non-stop, little sleep, stressful hustle and bustle of emotions and prepping to sell our home... Such sweet timing for me to look back on this.
"We have heard it so many times before. Moving is one of the most stressful things a marriage can go through. We've also laughed behin...Read Full Post »

This last month has been very chaotic for reasons I'm not quite ready to announce yet. I started off feeling guilty for not sharing the "why" in this blog until I realized those were my immature, pastors wife, ways. No one taught me these ways, but myself! Being young, naiive, and terrified of having such a large title can sometimes makes you put on certain habits like...Read Full Post »

Lord, thank you for my birthday. Thank you for this past year of my life, and for this new year your grace has granted me. I'm so thankful for all you have taught me, for all the ways you have held me up, and for the all the ways you have comforted me. Lord I know when I was younger I took my life for granted and even felt immortal, although I would have never said that. All the close calls and bad calls ...Read Full Post »

If you have followed my blogs the last few months, you know that I have battled this out of body experience that has been labeled as anxiety, or even social anxiety. It has been uncomfortable and at times, scary. If you read through my previous blog appropriately named, “un-cute life events”, you can see all the appointments I had gone to at that time. In short, I was having headaches, had a loss of energy, tempora...Read Full Post »

And there I was, right where I needed to be. Anxiety dull, but heart happy. Soul clinging to this moment and pushing all else away with every bit of strength the Lord equipped me with. Tears wanted to run wild, but I just breathed the emotion, the gratitude, in deeply. Closing my eyes, my hands pressed high, I worshipped my Jesus. My Father. My protector. My comforter. I looked over at my friend and the tears did...Read Full Post »

Trying to keep going, trying to keep moving. Don't stay still. Is it possible to feel like my head is not attatched to my body? No, just keep moving. Don't think about it. Read my Bible, pray, homeschooling, yoga, did I forget to eat? I feel happy and accomplished and yet my head is somewhere else. Why today? At least it would make more sense if it came on the hard days.
