The Day My Tank of Sufficiency Maxed Out

The Day My Tank of Sufficiency Maxed Out (and what I did about it). |

The days have been full as we minister in a town that is 90% unchurched, manage our work at home lives, prepare for an upcoming road trip, and attempt to create memories as a family and in our marriage. As I drove to meet a friend for coffee a few days ago, I found myself praying for strength. I cried out to the Lord to help me because everything just seemed so hard.

worth reading from my bookshelf to yours_edited-1

My goal is to read 25 books this year, which means I need to read at least two to three books a month to meet this goal. I have a reading list, but I'm giving myself grace to read books that aren't on my list as well. When I shared my reading list, many of you asked me to give updates about the book I'm reading. I really slacked on sharing my favorite books over the summer. You can see what I Continue Reading

When Mommy needs a quiet time, here are my favorite quiet time resources for small children! Don't just keep them occupied - teach them about Jesus too!

Being a mom of small children comes with many challenges (as does every other season of parenting, of course).

Why My Husband Quit His Job {A Story of Faith}

why my husband quit his job

Two years ago, we traded in our flip flops for snow boots. We sold both our vehicles, bought a four-wheel drive suburban, and moved across the country to a little mountain town tucked into a beautiful valley.

I pray for grace to love my babies and husband today, to ultimately live for Continue Reading
