Happiness in life is more about who than what

Happiness in life is an elusive thing. I can be happy at an event or moment in life, but to sustain that happiness beyond the moment or event is a little harder to do. For most people, happiness is difficult to achieve continuously throughout life. Life is like a rollercoaster, with extreme happiness ups and gut-wrenching... Continue Reading →

Planting Small Seeds

Last month I wrote about my Small Seeds Bible Campaign for Gospel for Asia. I talked about reaching my campaign goal earlier this year, and why not up the campaign ante? Today I opened my email to find Small Seeds have blessed GFA missionaries once again by exceeding that Bible campaign goal of $200! What... Continue Reading →

Small Seeds Bible Campaign

LISTEN TO THIS: There are 80,000 people who will die today in South Asia without ever hearing about Jesus Christ. They don't know his name, let alone that He died for them. Let that sink in a moment. They don't know HIM. 97% of these unreached people live in an area called the 10/40 window. Yet,... Continue Reading →

Because No Girl Should Miss School for This Reason

Ladies, let's talk about maxi pads. No blushing, now. It's a natural part of being a woman. Some days our menstrual cycle can be down right inconvenient...and calls for a lot of chocolate. But, one thing I don't worry about? Having maxi pads. If I happen to look under my bathroom cabinet to find I... Continue Reading →

Feeling Weary

I just got back from a 4 day vacation in which we stayed in a very quiet log cabin in the Rocky Mountains. You would think I would be renewed and rested. So why am I feeling so weary? I should feel rejuvenated. But I am not. I feel tired. The anxiety monster is showing his... Continue Reading →

World Water Day | March 22

One of my pet peeves is when I see someone (cue a certain member of may family who will remain nameless) leave the water running for no apparent reason. I get it, we take fresh, clean water for granted. With a quick turn of a handle, it's right there. We don't think much about wasting... Continue Reading →

The Power of Prayer is Real

Have you ever prayed for something that you wanted/needed badly? Have you ever prayed for healing, whether for yourself or a loved one? Were those prayers answered? I have, so I know the power of prayer is real. It's not to say those prayers were answered just the way I wanted, because God answers prayers,... Continue Reading →

Awesome Gift Giving Guide That Does Good | 2014

‘Tis the season to give…right? So, what do you get friends and family who have everything? Or, say, “I don’t need anything.” Which is true. Most of us don’t need a thing. Not so true for others around the world. The dilemma of the season: Give something special to our loved ones, because we love... Continue Reading →

Bible Journaling | Works for Me

I may have mentioned once or twice (or more) how I like to highlight books I am reading. I highlight passages I don't want to forget. I take notes in the margins. This is why I can never lend out my books to friends. Who wants to read a book with highlighter and notes written... Continue Reading →

Kids Growing Small Seeds, Doing Good

My late father-in-law always said, "Never plant seeds before Mother's Day." And, since he was the king of growing pole beans, I listened. Oh, how I miss his home-grown green beans! His theory of the perfect time to plant seeds was rooted in the idea that there was no longer danger of frost after Mother's... Continue Reading →

In the Midst of Hopelessness There is Hope | Not Your Ordinary Mother’s Day Story

Mother's Day is this Sunday. I am so blessed to have a mother that is loving, caring, faithful, funny, beautiful, generous. (I love you more, mom!) I once read that you should pay attention to what makes you cry, that will show you where your heart lies. What makes me cry? The oppression and mistreatment... Continue Reading →

Planting Small Seeds to Grow Big Ideas

Ideas are like small seeds. Stay with me here... What happens when you plant seeds? If you take care of the seeds, they will grow into something big and beautiful...like a giant pumpkin that wins a blue ribbon at the county fair. You start with a small idea. Right now it doesn't look like much.... Continue Reading →

Learning to Say Yes in My Mess | #yesinmymess

  I used to say yes to everything. I said yes to things I didn't want to do, mostly because I felt I "had to". Even when my heart said no, my mouth said yes. I thought that saying yes made me a better wife, mother, friend. Saying yes became a competition with other mothers.... Continue Reading →
