Let Nothing Move You

Let Nothing Move You

Over the last month, well last week or so I’ve felt burnt out. There’s been a lot going on in my family. You know the type where it feels like everything is going crazy all at once and you just want to scream. I’ve done that a few times, and then it makes you all grumpy […]

Who’s Voice Are You Listening To?

Who’s Voice Are You Listening To?

There are so many “voices” and things calling out to us to listen. It seems like every day it changes. Friends, family, social media, work and etc. It can all get confusing at times. The best way to break through this is to get into the Word. I know it can be hard. I’ll be […]

Fear Is A Liar

Fear Is A Liar

Fear is such a horrible thing to experience. This month has been of the times where it has crept up into my life and my family’s. I’m telling you can freak you out faster than a medical issue that your not sure what’s happening. It was tough and super scary for all of us. Okay, […]

When Fear Attacks

When Fear Attacks

Recently, I’ve been doing a Bible study from a group on Fear and Anxiety. Let me tell you it has hit home so much. I suffer at times from anxiety and panic attacks. Not as bad as they use to be, but still at times it’s there. Sometimes, it feels like someone has grabbed me […]

Making It Through Rough Times

Making It Through Rough Times

  These last few weeks and if I’m honest last month has been hard. Autism is hard. So hard. Can we just say puberty has hit with the twins? Sometimes, it can be a real struggle. They’ve also been having more seizures from it as well. Three children on the spectrum with tons of stimulation […]

Christmas Time Hustle and Bustle

Christmas Time Hustle and Bustle

The hustle and bustle is in full swing. I’m sure y’all have noticed. We went out today and oh my goodness. The city streets are packed. Where I live there was a mile at least of traffic to just get near Walmart. Oh man! Once we got there parking was way out there. I didn’t […]

Eclipse Of The Heart

Eclipse Of The Heart

  On Monday when the eclipse happened it had me thinking of some things. We got about 91% here, so it was a good chunk covered. My kids were super excited about this, okay, well the girls were. My twins didn’t understand what’s going on with them having autism. I explained it best I could […]

Fix Your Eyes on Jesus

Fix Your Eyes on Jesus

I’m doing a Bible study and something struck out at me when we were studying in Matthew 14 28-33. Here’s what it says. 28 “Lord, if it’s you,” Peter replied, “tell me to come to you on the water.” 29 “Come,” he said. Then Peter got down out of the boat, walked on the water and came toward […]

Faith Tested

Faith Tested

  The last few weeks have been a struggle. A big struggle for my family. Faith has been tested. Relationships strained and it all kept piling on. It’s really been that way since Easter. Tough. I’m telling you, like super tough. But, in all of this that has happened God has been there. God has […]

God’s Timing Is Always Best

God’s Timing Is Always Best

We moved across states recently, which I think I mentioned in another post. Let me tell you it wasn’t without some bumps. First we had a month, so that should be enough time, right? We sure thought so. Plus, we were moving back home…to our home state of Indiana. That meant we had family close […]

Moving Chaos and God

Moving Chaos and God

  My family is in the middle of an out of state move. Can we say crazy time? Oh, my, yes it sure is. We’ve known for a month for sure and in that time we’ve been purging tons of stuff. I’m sure our trash men just love us. Maybe I should bake them cookies […]

The Fear Of The Lord

The Fear Of The Lord

I started doing a Bible Study this week on Wisdom. It’s with a big ministry. Somethings have stood out to me, that I’ve not seen or thought about before. Crazy, how God does that, right? We at times may want to think we have wisdom and know more than we do.  Sometimes we do and sometimes we don’t. […]

Thanksgiving In Your Heart

Thanksgiving In Your Heart

This week in the USA on Thursday is Thanksgiving. I love, love this holiday. Family comes together and sometimes we only see them at this time and at Christmas. The smells and the food. There’s nothing like it. Coming around a fire as family members, a lot of times grandmas are cooking up a storm […]

Conflict, Refined, Fire Being Made New For God

Conflict, Refined, Fire Being Made New For God

Conflict. This one word can send hives all over our body. I don’t know about you, but I hate it at all cost. Okay, so maybe not always. It’s great in writing, just not in real life. I’m sure we’ve all heard, God won’t give us more than we can handle. Have you ever thought […]

Bad Day And The Holy Spirit

Bad Day And The Holy Spirit

Those days where everything is going wrong, and in the chaos, a still small voice is heard, or someone posts a scripture you needed right at that moment. It could be from a devotion, you’ve read during your quiet time.  I’m sure we’ve all experienced this. Today was one of those days for me. My twins have […]
