Today’s Battle Plan

The other morning I woke with a heavy heart. I honestly wanted to pull the covers back up and remain in bed all day. But I begrudgingly forced myself from my cocoon of comfort and made my way downstairs. My heart cried out over my bowl of Cheerios, “Lord, this world is going mad. I

Sunrise

I woke with joyful expectation, ready to run downstairs for my own private Easter sunrise service. For days, I had looked forward to sitting in my favorite chair for a front row seat to the Creator's early morning masterpiece. I love Easter.  I especially love my tradition of getting up before the rest of my

A Night Like No Other

As the world and all of her inhabitants settled in for the night—as the evening sky surrendered to the encompassing darkness, You walked into a garden. As mothers were tucking their children into bed, You asked Your disciples to stay awake and pray with You. As fathers locked their doors, trying to keep out evil,

He Cares. He sees. He loves.

To my sweet girl, You poured your heart into writing a play for your friends. You were absorbed for hours writing each line, each director’s note, each act, and each closing-curtain instruction. Your face beamed with joy as you read me each new scene. You radiated with the excitement of creating something—of bringing forth thought

Jesus is More

This blog is dedicated to seeing glimpses of God's glory throughout my ordinary days. Yet, as we approach Easter, I am reminded that the best way to see God's glory is to look at His Son. Jesus. Not just a good man, He is our Great Savior. Not just a good teacher, He is the

My Friend

I want to introduce you to Aimee. She has been defined over the years as many things: a daughter, a sister, a student, a writer, a wife, a mother, a friend.....a person with mental illness. But if you ask her what she is defined by, she will tell you that she is Jesus defined. She

Whispers of love amidst shouts of hate

“Mama, you said that love is stronger than hate right?” my thoughtful little girl asked from the back seat. “Yes, baby. Love is stronger than hate.” I said unsure of why this particular topic had arisen following a rousing conversation about Peeps. “Well, why is hate so much louder than love?” “Louder?” I asked enthralled

I am a Writer

"So are you a writer?" she asked with genuine curiosity. "Uh," I began with great eloquence, "yes?" (I literally said that in the form of a question!) Then came the equally eloquent clarification. "I mean, well....I write....words....a lot of words." Dear Lord! Please stop talking. "I mean, I like to write. I write curriculum....and stories. And

How To Put On Strength

"She dresses herself with strength and makes her arms strong. Proverbs 31:17" There are days that I do not feel very strong, let alone equipped to meet the challenges that arise during a day. I was recently asked to write a devotional for my church about the Proverbs 31 woman. One thing I found really

Rest for the Weary

My reaction to stress is very much like that of an opossum - sleep! When my stress level goes up, the covers go over my head. I want rest. I crave rest. But so often I go to the wrong place to find that rest. A nap, scrolling through facebook, a great cup of coffee,

About My Work

This blog serves as an online journal of sorts. It is where I go to process my thoughts and feelings. It is where I write about what it means to shine the light of Jesus in an ever darkening world. And it is where I record the beautiful glimpses of God’s extraordinary grace in the midst of my very ordinary life.
