If we were having coffee today, I would tell you that these are the days I prayed for, longed for, and maybe even grieved for, when I was home with my babies. If we were having coffee today, I would tell you about all the walks and talks I had with Jesus. About my calling,… Continue reading coffee chats

We all know women that inspire us to be a better version of ourselves. Even as grownups, these women make us say, “I want to be like her when I grow up.” In our Christmas story, this is Anna.

when family becomes friends.
When I was pregnant and even now as a veteran mom, I need my girlfriends. A couple of my close friends had babies 6-12months before I had my first. Having them walking just that much ahead of me was such a blessing, especially with that first pregnancy! 39 At that time Mary got ready and… Continue reading when family becomes friends.

You know a meal is good or a restaurant has great food when you think about what you ate, days later? That’s good food right!?!? When you go back to that meal or restaurant you tend to savor the food a little bit more than the time before too. I rarely feel this way about… Continue reading what do you savor?
One of the questions I get asked the most is, “What does sitting with Jesus really look like?”. I think, as women, we have created this picture of a moment like Mary sitting at the feet of Jesus.
