Growing Up GOP

Today I came across a New York Times article titled, “Why Teenagers Today May Grow Up Conservative.” I found these observations to be quite legitimate and wanted to share how my own personal experience reflects these findings. I was born in 1977. When I was 8 years old, I wrote my first letter to the…

Lent, Fasting and Me

Nearly two months in to 2014 and this is my first post. I am very pleased to tell you that I have been busy reading my chronological Bible as I indicated my intention to do in my last post of 2013. I have read through Genesis, Job and Exodus along with John 1 (alongside Genesis…

My Focus for 2014

I began 2013 committing to focus on one word for the year: Believe. This turned into Believing God and a secondary focus on God’s Promises. I set out to scour the Bible to learn about God’s promises and how I could rightly apply those promises to my life. This was, in a way, my mission…

Goals

Well, October is gone and I did not write for 31 days. I did good though. I did better than I thought I would and better than I did last year. Despite failing to write for 31 days, I am still proud of what I accomplished. I learned alot about myself through putting together these…

Yes

I am coming out of a very long season of No. Ever since I became a parent I pretty much said no to everything that had nothing to do with my successfully transitioning to parenthood. That was a little over 2 years ago. But many other things happened in the last two years. Not only…

Seasons

Ok so I have a really good reason for not writing the past several days. I was scheduled to give a devotion at my MOPS meeting. I was having a hard time figuring out what to say and basically poured all of my time and focus into getting that over the finish line. So since…

Dear All The Praying People

My kid slept 8 hours last night! Granted, he went to bed at 7 pm and I went to bed around 10:30 pm so I didn’t get 8 hours but 4.5 is a big improvement! Thank you for your prayers and your words. The best part about this blogging challenge has been hearing from so…

Life Happens

I wrote a blog post tonight. I spent well over an hour on it. But several things are preventing me from posting it. Remember how I said yesterday that I don’t post a blog unless I feel like God has given it the green light? Lets just say that the light is still red. Now…

Confession: Sometimes I Miss My Job

So you probably know that I am a stay at home mom now. After LucyKate was born I stopped working full-time and went extremely part-time, only working 10 hours a week. It was an awesome gig and I am thankful to have had that job as I transitioned from full-time work in an office to…

Reclaiming Time With Smart Phone Apps

A few months ago I wrote about how I was struggling to stay connected to the Lord during this busy season with a new baby in the home. Before Lucas was born I found a good rhythm for my study time during LucyKate’s nap time. It worked great for that season but I knew that…
