Open Doors

Have you ever had a revelation or a word from God explode in you? Yeah…that happened to me this week and I know that it wasn’t just a word for me but a word for many of you reading this. My husband and I have been doing some projects around our fixer-upper house the last […]


She Doesn’t Know She Has Down Syndrome

Emma is now 3 years old. She is every bit of a typical toddler and then some. Recently on a sunny afternoon, Emma and I were playing outside on her swing set. As we played, I watched her smile and laugh. I watched her blow dandelions in the air and smell flowers. I watched her […]


Looks Like Love

February. The month of love. Valentine’s Day. Flowers and candy. Romantic dinners for some….dinners alone for others. Bleh. I used to be one of those people who rolled their eyes at all the flowers, balloons, red paper hearts and mushy love stuff that was everywhere I turned in the month of February. Bleh. Seriously, people….can’t […]


5 Truths for Discouragement

There’s pain in my chest tonight. I first called it stress. Then I called it hurt. Then disappointment. Then discouragement. Then, I realized it’s all of those things–the things a mother feels for her child, only a little deeper. Perhaps a lot deeper. It’s an ache that acts as a buffer, absorbing the weight of […]

VIDEO: The Day Jesus Took Me by the Hand

I’d like to invite you in to an encounter I had with the Lord just recently. It’s the day Jesus took me by the hand. He said to me gently, “Come follow me…” What happened next was incredible! My entire life has shifted around this one encounter. This is a precious moment that the Lord […]


Urgency to Know God’s Character

A recent opportunity to answer questions about faith and God solidified my conviction of the need to know God’s character through the whole of God’s living Word, the Bible. A Christian had lost their faith in God being a good God. This person knew Scripture, and really wanted answers. I was able to testify with […]
