I wish my house would look half as nice. I tried another recipe from Pinterest. Fail! And my kids complained about it. Dinner … Continue reading In Pursuit of Perfection
If only there were more hours in the day . . . If only there were two of me . . . I'll never get all of this done . . . If only there were a solution . . . But wait. There is! You won't like it though. In fact, I can already … Continue reading A Radical Solution to a Common Problem
Let me tell you something. Spiritual attacks are real. I plan on writing more about that specific topic in coming months. For now, know this: the enemy seeks to steal, kill and destroy (John 10:10). He wants to steal your attention away from God. He wants to kill the plans God has for you. He wants … Continue reading What About Jesus?
A while back, I wrote about how obedience is hard. It is much easier to disobey the prompts we feel from God on a daily basis than to follow Him. I didn't realize this when I re-dedicated my life to Christ back in 2014. Witnessing the believers around me, life appeared easy. It's not, friend. Jesus never … Continue reading Not Today, Satan!
I detest my dental appointments. I've been known to call and reschedule the bi-yearly cleanings simply because the anxiety over going was too much to handle. Growing up, I never had a cavity.

Confession time: I enjoy affirmation. It makes me feel good. I seek praises from my family for cleaning the house, putting away laundry, or serving them in another manner. I desire compliments from my husband to boost my self-esteem. I post pictures on social media and constantly check for new likes or comments. I do … Continue reading He’s Always Watching
