Last week, I wrote about abandoning your to-do list and giving God full control of your day. Did you try it? How did it go? At the time of writing this post, it's been six days since I've let God rewrite my to-do list. For one, I feel much more peace and joy. I'm disgusted … Continue reading What happens when you abandon your to-do list?
My husband and I appreciate all the love and support we've received on our Marriage Monday posts. They will continue as long as we continue to have adventures to share! I'm excited to announce that I'm working on a marriage devotional! Crazy how it happened. My novel is done (praying about publishing it - ANY … Continue reading I’m writing a marriage devotional!
As a former Administrative Assistant, I enjoy my to-do lists. Checking off those little boxes makes me feel like I accomplished something today. I often like to cross things off my list, so I have a sense of truly conquering that task. But, a couple of weeks ago, God convicted me about my to-do list. … Continue reading Abandoning My To-Do List
I just wanted to update you all that I will be taking a break from my blog to focus on free writing. I can't wait to tell you all about it when I'm finished! I've been studying the topic of soul care, and as I've asked the Lord how I can better take care of … Continue reading I’m Taking a Break!
The other day, I went to a Chinese auction, completely not expecting to go to one when I had woken up that morning. It was my mom's ticket, but she was unable to go, so she gave it to me for free. Since I'd had a panic attack at work, I wasn't sure I'd be … Continue reading Crazy Favor
Today, I was in a stressful situation at work that sent me into panic mode (which rarely happens at this job, thank God!). I sent a quick text to Lenny and told him how I was feeling. He sent me a text back that he was praying for me. Just knowing that he was on my side … Continue reading Praying for Your Spouse
I generally tend to be optimistic. However, in light of my optimism, people tell me that I'm sometimes unrealistic. And when people look at the negative side, they tend to tell me that they're just being realistic. One day, when I was in college, I looked outside and said, "Wow, it's a beautiful day outside. … Continue reading Pessimism is NOT Realistic!
Three years ago, I wrote a post on Facebook: "Sometimes we go through impossible situations so that we could truly know and believe that nothing is impossible with God." How appropriate for the conversation I want to have with you today about impossible prayers! Think of the impossible situations in your life. I want you … Continue reading Prayers for the Impossible
Marriage is hard. It's not impossible, and it's definitely worthy of fighting for, but marriage really is a fight. It's a fight against our own will, against our spouse's idiosyncrasies, and against what society expects of us. The hardest part of marriage is that you realize that your Prince Charming, or your Queen, is a human. … Continue reading Prayers for Eyes to See
This post may be inappropriate for those under age 18 due to the subtle mention of sexual language. Reader discretion is advised. Yesterday was Shine a Light on Slavery Day, a day to promote the #EnditMovement (Did you wear your red X?). Today, I'm ready to share how I feel about human trafficking, not only … Continue reading The Price of a Woman
