Quitting the rat race and how to be happy


Is it just me or does the whole completion of life make you gag? Like, how crazy is it that we live in a world where we compete to see who has what? We legit get in debt with stuff we should not be buying to up one someone. That's crazy to me. It always… Continue reading Quitting the rat race and how to be happy

How the modern mom is losing spiritually


Last night I stayed up with my daughters praying and breathing words of life in to their lives. One of my daughters was under a spiritual attack and I had to recognize that it wasn’t a physical war against me. It was spiritually and so I had to put on my armor. Ephesians 6:11Put on… Continue reading How the modern mom is losing spiritually

Prayers for my second born


Day two of prayers for my children: When I pray for each and everyone of my children, I don’t just pray the same thing. I really try to learn who my children are and what they are struggling with and I truly try to celebrate their strengths. So when I pray for Sadie I do… Continue reading Prayers for my second born

Prayers for my oldest


I get asked what a prayer for my children looks like, or what exactly it is I pray when I do for my children so I decided that for the next three days I was going to share a picture of one of my kiddos with a caption of what I pray. We have to… Continue reading Prayers for my oldest

I want more… I mean less.. wait.


It’s so easy to get lost in a world filled with advise. It’s so easy to get consumed by the amount of things we have at our fingertips. It’s so easy to waste time when we have gadgets that take us anywhere we want. It’s easy to start comparing when you have social media to… Continue reading I want more… I mean less.. wait.

The instagram Christian mom lie


I woke up today feeling a bit off, I realized I haven’t spent any good time with God in the last month. By good time I mean I'm choosing to clean/organize/post on Instagram/ watch shows (being Martha) over spending time with him (Choosing Mary). I feel so guilty when I realize that I've wasted time… Continue reading The instagram Christian mom lie

The gospel and our children and why I share it with them


Good morning all, I woke up today thinking on 3 John 1:4, “there’s no greater joy than to know my children walk in the truth”. Gods word never comes back empty and every time you have the opportunity to show the gospel to your children, do it. I find small times during the car, over… Continue reading The gospel and our children and why I share it with them

Midnight prayers 


Because I'm a creep, I was watching my husband sleep and I started to pray over him.  Anyone else do this?  Many times when I can't sleep in the middle of the night, I say "ok Lord, I'll pray" and I pray over my husband and children.  But I want to focus on our husbands… Continue reading Midnight prayers 

Why I’ll always take breaks from social media 


It's 3am, I'm sitting here on my couch as everyone sleeps. I feel this urge to just be awake... I open my devotional and read about how Jesus withdrew himself to pray all the time. He didn't wait for the sabbath or a "special time", he took breaks to pray and took breaks from his… Continue reading Why I’ll always take breaks from social media
