Water into Wine

I got to see a miracle on Sunday. I saw Jesus turn water into wine. While only metaphorically, it was still awesome! It was aged “wine”, at least 2 years in the making … though looking back probably more. Chris, my husband, and I both began feeling that the Lord was calling us to ministry after Naomi was born. For me, it began with a calling to blog/speak and encourage women in this digital age. Chris wasn’t sure, but we both felt the very strong calling to ministry. We were very fortunate to have some good friends who offered to […]

Weary - but Continuing our Journey

So much has been going on … more than I have even been able to process or even communicate to myself. And I’m weary. We are sitting on the cusp of our next big life transition – not that we haven’t already had several major life transitions in the last 18 months, but many of those have all led up to this one – graduation and pursuing whatever ministry God will call us to. In the last few weeks I’ve discovered that many of my friends haven’t even known that Chris is in school to become a pastor, or that […]

She was raring to go, so I told her quickly that I needed to turn her shirt around.

However, the instant I didn’t do the normal thing that comes after taking her arms out of the shirt (taking it off over her head), she flipped out! […]

Sure there are a ton of ideas out there, but most require a good bit of money or time …. both of which I’m extremely short on right now. So when I came up with this simple idea, I knew I had to take time to share! Quick & Easy Valentine Think of something small your husband loves that comes in multiples (this may be the hardest part). It can be as simple as a favorite candy, or for us small bottles of pop that contain sugar […]

Feeling like a Failure

I’m sitting in a high school classroom as I begin to type this. Being that it is exam week, I’ve heard a lot about failing – especially as the students get up to leave after taking their exam. “I know I failed that,” “I’m just praying for a D!” Or worse yet, “Yep, I failed that, oh well.”   And I remember uttering these phrases myself amongst my peers after taking tests in high school. When anything was hard, or we felt uncertain, we were sure we failed. Rarely had we actually failed, even though we may not have done […]
