Grace and Truth Link-Up

The Christmas season is coming up fast, yet I have seen several posts around Facebook where my friends have said it doesn’t feel like Christmas. Maybe you can relate?

Christmas is Coming

It was a couple of years ago on Christmas eve… I felt a sense of panic rising within. Christmas was tomorrow, and mentally, I wasn’t even ready for Thanksgiving. The holiday season had come and gone, and I felt like I was grasping at…

My Crazy Life Isn’t Always Exciting, But Life Goes On

I trust in God... but what if...

Do We Really Trust In God?

It started out like any other day… I hit the snooze button multiple times, then finally drug myself out of bed. I visited with my husband who had already been awake for over an hour, taken kids to cross country practice, made coffee, and…

Walking with Jesus

Simply Walking with Jesus Day In and Day Out

I got this knot in the pit of my stomach. I was overwhelmed by this feeling of failure. Like I could never do it on my own. Like I was going to fail. Our book, Candid Conversations was launching in less than a week…

When My Mama Bear Instincts & Faith Collide

Opening the door on the good news of Jesus

Opening The Door On The Good News About Jesus

As I closed the door I realized that I had failed again. The sweet ladies I had just told I wasn’t interested in what they were peddling had been nothing but kind. And I was dismissive. Worse yet, I had suggested I already had…

Only Jesus Can Heal The Pain In My Aching Heart

Have you ever thought you were over something and then found out in the worst possible way that you weren’t? That the pain was still very, very real? Maybe some wounds never fully heal. I guess I’ll just come right out and say it.…

The other side of church hurt....

The Other Side Of Church Hurt…

Someone in our church was hurting. It started as a difference of opinions. We were praying for guidance and there was a disagreement over where God was leading us. Feelings were hurt. What do you do when you are hurting for the one who’s…

Little eyes, road rage, and Jesus

Little Eyes, Road Rage & Jesus

Last year, I was driving a couple of neighbor kids to school and had an eye-opening experience. The first day, while I was scowling and muttering unkind things in the direction of the car in front of me, they commented that they had never…

My fear of failure, and Jesus

My Overwhelming Fear of Failure & Jesus

Y’all, I know this site is called Candidly Christian, but somethings are easier to be candid about than others. Somethings are just plain hard to admit… Like my overwhelming fear of failure. Over a year and a half ago I wrote about how we…

The Truth About My Life – Online & Off

I talk to so many women online that I feel like I connect with. We think we would be great friends if we just lived closer together. But can I be real with you for just a moment? I know there are women right…
