A few weeks ago, I had reached a point where I was frankly overwhelmed. If you’re like me, you need plans. Routine. Lists make things easier, consistency is the highlight of my week, scheduled appointments, meetings and get togethers are always met and fulfilled. I realized because we have welcomed a season of a lot of doing, I needed to stay organized. So I have … Continue reading Composure or Lack Thereof
When I was younger, I would find random Bible verses in the Bible, write them down on a piece of paper, and tape it to my bedroom wall. I remember writing with red ink, using fancy scissors that cut in patterns to cut them out, and continued to never actually look at the verse again once I put it up on the wall.

There will be glory.
We have been on the journey of small business for almost two months now. Not everyday is a great one. More often than not, I find myself crying in my husband’s office because of all the worries of this path we have chosen. It is new, and it is not exactly paved.
There will be glory. Continue reading “Grace & Glory”
I’m just going to be real honest with y’all and get down to the nitty gritty. I’ve got a lot on my heart today that’s keeping me from seeing how good God is. Discouragement is a strong force, and it can pummel even the strongest of souls. I have a lot of words I could say, but I’ll leave with this: Do not be … Continue reading Few Words
