Perfect, Intentional Timing

Seth and I are extremely blessed when it comes to Benjamin’s sleeping schedule.  He’s slept the whole night through pretty much since he was two months old.  Only on occasion has he been up throughout the night and, even then, it wasn’t for long. Last night, however, he was up until midnight and after finally…

Jesus Was Lonely Too

Loneliness is something we all experience. It can last only moments, potentially months, or even years for others. I often find myself feeling lonely even as a stay-at-home momma. People might think that sounds crazy, I have a 1-year-old cuddling me all day long. How could I possibly feel lonely?

Ultimate Freedom

“5 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, 2 through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we now stand. And we boast in the hope of the glory of God. 3 Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; 4 perseverance, character; and character, hope. 5 And hope does…

Patient Little Beings

For as long as I can remember every summer my mom would raise Monarch Butterflies. Naturally, I’ve come to love them as well, and as a child, I often spent my summer days trying to catch Monarchs, Tiger Swallowtails, and the elusive Dull Firetips. She’d find most of her “babies” as just that! Babies in…

More Than Mindless

After putting Benjamin down for his afternoon nap, I came downstairs and flipped on the TV as I ate my lunch.  Before I knew it, it had been an hour and a half and my food was long gone.  I thought to myself, “What am I doing with my life?”.  Immediately, I turned it off and…
