Grace & Truth For When Parenting Is Hard

Let’s be honest for a moment… parenting is hard. Even on the good days. Even under “normal circumstances.” (Whatever that means.) My children are growing up. Our youngest (twins) will turn 12 this year. They start 6th grade in the fall. I’ve started reminiscing…

Grace and Truth and The Joy of Missing Out

I have been totally, and completely, overwhelmed this week. I started a new organization system at the end of last month that helped me feel like I got a handle on things… so what did I do? I took on more work. Now I…

Have you ever felt afraid to be yourself? You probably didn’t think of it that way, but you just act a certain way around certain people. You know, because it’s more acceptable. You want to fit in……

Grace and Truth for When You Feel Like You Don’t Belong

Have you ever walked into a room full of people and felt like you were completely alone? I have. Many, many times. I remember driving to the women’s Christmas party our church was hosting one year and giving myself a pep talk just so…

Grace and Truth and The Shades of Love

The shades of love… if you’re wondering, I’m not talking about the 80’s dance music or lingerie. I’m talking about the varying degrees and different definitions we have for love.…

Grace & Truth & The God Who Sees Me

Do you ever feel left out or forgotten? Like if you disappeared the whole world would just go on without you? Okay, maybe your family needs you, but your church family wouldn’t notice, or your work place wouldn’t care? Maybe your school or your…

Grace and Truth for Your Prayer Life

Grace and Truth For When You’re Seeking Jesus

I shared a little bit of the chaos that is my life last week. It would be fair to say that I’m still in the midst of it all. Which is probably why Marva’s post from last week spoke right to my heart.…

Grace and Truth for Your Quiet Time

When my twins were little finding some one-on-one time with Jesus was… well, difficult to say the least. Quiet time? That was almost laughable. I had four children ages five and under, so I learned to work with what I had. But I definitely…
