A lesson from my kids about bravery...

Ever learn more from a lesson you give your kids than they do?

Me too.

Yesterday my son asked me to pray that he would be brave. I told him yes of course, but also told him that bravery isn’t always something you have. I told him that bravery is often being afraid but choosing to do something …

when you're suffocating in your blessings...

Talk about feeling guilty...

Everything around you is a blessing. Family. A good job. Provision. A home for yourself and your family. Clothes on your backs. And yet, you feel burdened. As though you're suffocating from these blessings that others would give anything for.

I Choose Truth

Driving to work this morning I heard Natalie Grant, one of my favorite singers, on the radio talking about how she got started with Hope For Justice, an organization that helps rescue girls from human trafficking.  Within 2 minutes I was bawling.  She was telling a story of a time that her and her h…

I am not enough...

Driving home from having one of the best days ever with my kids, a song came on the radio with the lyrics "Your world's not falling apart, it's falling into place," and I broke down in tears.  Although today has been amazing, this week has been extremely difficult, mentally and emotionally, and I ha…
