Don't Go to Bed Angry

What I Read Wednesday {Enter for a chance to win a copy here.} So many of us, regardless of age or faith, have fallen in love with the fairy tale version of marriage.  We put so much weight on "the day" with little regard to "the life" of happily ever after. We fall in love in February with all things love, red, and pink. The movies that give … {Continue reading…}

One Small Step of Faith


So many times, I think we get stuck waiting for an orchestra and symphony to sound these great bells and chimes to let us know it's Time ... So many times, I think we get stuck waiting for someone else to validate what we already know God has placed in our hearts ... So many times, I think we get stuck because we want to believe we are in … {Continue reading…}

Unreasonable Hope


I had the privilege of receiving an advance copy of this new book by Pastor Chad Veach  "Unreasonable Hope" I knew the moment I learned about his story and sweet Georgia, that I would connect on many levels. The day it arrived I was so excited to open it and dive in... and then my heart didn't quite feel the same. The book is raw and … {Continue reading…}

For Your Approval


Honesty, Integrity, Authentic, Accountability Just a few things that frame the way I am the way I am.   For Your Approval, not so much.

In the smiles and … {Continue reading…}

World Down Syndrome Day 2016


My Love and Life.... This sweet beautiful girl... She so much like every other typical 6 year old.  She has pretty almond eyes full of wander and curiosity.  She is a friend and a daughter, a granddaughter, a niece, a kindergarten, a sister, and she has down syndrome.  But she is anything but "downs"... She is happy, but not because of her extra … {Continue reading…}

When We Know…


Yesterday was quite simply just amazing. Seeing prayers answered in ways I hadn't in my little simple mind, been able to imagine. But Yesterday, it all came together multiple ways, multiple times. Like a big knock in the head from God himself- "Hello Girly, It's really Me." I laugh when I think of all the things I 'know" with … {Continue reading…}

Things Look Different Than I Planned…

Hebrews 12

I remember agencies closing and praying to find the right one.  I remember having a room all set up even though the wait could be two or more years. I remember having to take pictures to send with our dossier.  I remember walking past that room and gazing.  I remember every painful step that led to us having to stop and change directions.  I can … {Continue reading…}
