[This post is actually a devotional I wrote for our Women's Ministry at church. We have been doing a series on the Proverbs 31 woman. Just wanted to share....] Oh to be described as someone who speaks with wisdom! I think of all the qualities the Proverbs 31 woman possesses; this one touches my heart
I find myself praying for many people today. Many hurting hearts and broken souls. After having so many praying for my family over the past few weeks, it is an honor to pray for others today. As I have been praying, I keep finding myself singing the song, "Lord, I Need You." So I thought
My son has recently discovered the old classic "Don't Worry Be Happy" by Bobby McFerrin. Don't you love it when your kids find "your" music entertaining! He has been blasting the laid back mantra of Mr. McFerrin all throughout our house. And when a music device is not within reach, he loudly whistles the tune.
Yesterday I found myself feeling overwhelmed with certain situations that are beyond my control. Many things are changing in my life and the lives of those I love.

This blog is dedicated to my pursuit of seeing glimpses of God's glory in the midst of my mundane. Recently, however, my days have felt less than mundane.

Wouldn't it be nice if we got to pick the trials we went through? And if we could somehow veto a particular trial....Although, if that were the case I would veto all of them! I am trial adverse, yet I realize the good that can come from trials. Nothing grows your faith like trials (just
I have always been a daddy's girl. And proud of it. Growing up I think I viewed my dad as more of a buddy than a parent. A fact that probably drove my poor mom crazy as she often had to play the role of "bad guy" to maintain some sense of order in our home.
