Does God See and Care? {Grace & Truth linkup}

Does God see and care about us?

This has been quite a week and I approached this feature spot looking for something that would really encourage me. And I found it in Lisa’s post, “When You Need to Know Whether God Sees and Cares“. Lisa relates a story about a question that her daughter asked. While it seemed a silly question, Lisa […]


How to Survive When He Tells You He’s Leaving

How to Survive When He Tells You He's Leaving

So he just spoke the words that you’ve dreaded all your life. Maybe he said them quietly, perhaps he unleashed them with a vengeance: “I don’t know that I’m going to stay with you.” Or maybe even, “I want a divorce.” Your heart drops and you’re suddenly very aware of the feeling in the pit […]


Trusting God When You Can’t Go On

Trusting God when you can't go on

If you’ve been in the Christian community in the last year or so, no doubt you’ve heard Hillsong United’s “Oceans (Where Feet May Fail)”. It’s truly a beautiful song, with a deeply personal meaning for a lot of people. It’s a great testament to faith, to answering God’s call. This week I had a very […]


The Only Sure Way to Effect Change

Scripture Prayer Cards for Husbands and Wives

This has been a week of extreme ups and downs for me, personally. It’s so hard to experience some of those highs and then turn around and right into the path of the 2×4 that’s just about to knock you out. That’s how this week has felt. My kids started back to school recently, and […]


Pilgrimage (Grace & Truth)

Pilgrimage (Grace and Truth linkup)

This time of year is always my favorite. Labor Day weekend signifies the transition to fall for me. That’s been on my mind as we’ve started a new school year. With my crew, it can sometimes seem like quite a labor of love to get them to, and through, another year. I think that’s why […]


Gentle Words {Grace & Truth linkup}

Gentle Words {Grace & Truth linkup}

Gentle words. It’s such a pleasure to talk with someone who seems to exude gentleness – from the way they look, to the way they carry themselves, to the way they speak. Gentle words are something I struggle with. I tend to say what’s on my mind, not often thinking about how it may impact […]


Giving Up in Marriage: What You Really Lose

Giving Up - what you really lose and why you should keep on fighting

“I quit.” You’ve probably heard it, and you’ve likely even said it. So have I. None of us are alone in feeling frustrated and overwhelmed with life sometimes. Recently I shared about how so many people tend to give up on their marriage. For some, it’s a quick choice – it’s not convenient anymore, so […]


This Parenting Game Could Change Your World

The Parenting Game That Could Change the World

This week I’m sharing a post whose idea (shared in the title) grabbed me; I was interested in reading about it. About halfway through, I thought, “This post is nice; I might share it this week. Sounds fun.” I stepped away from reading to help my kids with something. About 20 minutes later I came back, […]


When Did it Become a Bad Thing to Fight For Your Marriage?

When did it become a bad thing to fight for your marriage?

We’ve probably all heard the latest news about yet another Christian man, a religious figure, who said and did all the right things in public while hiding a laundry list of wrong-doings. In this media-filled age, it’s hard to avoid the situations like Josh Duggar’s. I hope it broke your heart. I know it broke […]
