Little Victories

Today, it happened. And I can’t contain myself!   Today, I stepped on the scale and lost it. It’s not as easy to lose the weight after baby # 3 and God knows I’ve been trying. And today it has finally paid off. I’ve lost…. Not 20.. Not 15… No, not even 10.  I’ve lost…….5……Continue reading “Little Victories”

No More Excuses

❤ Disclaimer: Pardon my scary no-makeup naked face and hear my heart. ❤  As a mom of 3 little ones under the age of 7, time fills up quickly. My middle child is up before the crack of dawn each day so that takes my morning devotion time most days. My oldest hates school duringContinue reading “No More Excuses”

Breakthrough MOMent! #thankyouJesus

Ever have an “ahhh hah!” moment? Well let me tell you, I sure did. And it blew. me. a.w.a.y. We can’t assume we’re going to pass a test we never study for.

Don’t Hide Your Gift <3

Since the beginning of time, God has been in the fixer upper business. He doesn’t generally pick those in the front of the line.  He’s known for patiently waiting on those the world overlooks.  The rejected, despised, “too young,” “too old,” inexperienced newbies.  He takes the ones who are picked last in gym class and brings themContinue reading “Don’t Hide Your Gift <3”

(I know sometimes it really does feel this way, doesn’t it?)  No, my sweetContinue reading “Your Prayers are Precious to God “

Undeserved Love

Today was filled with little people whininess and attitudes and fussing galore. Lions and tigers and bears, OH MY! Just an all around crapola day to be frankly honest.   So to salvage some sanity I put the kids to bed early and have been enjoying some quiet mommy and Jesus time. #breathe #sweetJesus  IContinue reading “Undeserved Love”

Naked Prayers

“God’s not dead, He’s surely alive! He’s living on the inside roaring like a lion.”  – Newsboys  And that He did.   Today, actually.   This morning I found myself in the shower crying. The realization that God uses cracked vessels to accomplish His will is so overwhelming.    “Use me, Lord. I just wantContinue reading “Naked Prayers”
