I know, I know, I haven't been blogging lately. I'm still adjusting to life as a working momma. It hasn't been easy. For awhile there, I just gave up all of the maintenance. Laundry piled up for weeks, messes scattering rooms, more than that, I hadn't flipped a Bible page, I missed a few church … Continue reading My Best Advice
I've been busy with the baby and cleaning today. My space got messy over the weekend so I've been tidying up whenever the princess gave me permission. Anyhow, that means I'm going to use a quote for today's motivation. Yeah, I know, Monday is already over. Come back to this post tomorrow morning 🙂 From … Continue reading Keep it Clean
Sure, I love to write and can easily fill journal pages. I like words, I do, I do. Yet, my blog is still not where I want it to be. It must be time to change things up around here. What do I do? Other blogs and articles loaded with blogging advice all say the same thing.

I spent 14 hours in active labor. I was in what they call "Labor Land." Which means that everything in the real world was blurred by complete immersion into my body. The sensations take over your whole body so there is no ability to recognize and interpret the surrounding environment. And it's true, people will … Continue reading Labor of Love
Today's message at church was prompted by an interesting question, "Why do some Christ-followers seem to struggle internally more than others?" It's a question I've often wondered myself because my transformation was so radical. I want to see radical transformations in the hearts of all my friends and family, I want to see them experience … Continue reading Standing Firm
You cannot expect other people to treat you how you want to be treated if you are not treating yourself how you want to be treated. That's why boundaries begin with the self. We have to give ourselves space and time, especially prayer with God, to learn about the limits of things we can and cannot accept.
This year has been an eye-opener. I think everyone says that every year and that's a good thing, it means that we are moving forward or at least touching the deeper meanings of life. But, seriously, it feels as though this year kept my eyelids peeled back until the dryness of my eyeballs was no … Continue reading Setting Boundaries (intro)
