Bed time seems to be the hardest part of our day. Jonathan has delt with "bad dreams" for quite a while. Little did I know that this is a sign of anxiety. He is doing better now that he is getting help
Whenever one of the kid's have a birthday it is a reminder of the blessing God placed in my life. But, there is something to be that makes me think a little deeper when they hit one of those milestone Birthdays. This year Grace turned 10!
I recently studied through the I AM statements Jesus makes in the book of John. It is one of my favorite studies ...because I feel like I am sitting at the feet of Jesus listening to Him tell me Who He Is.
I was reading through the book of John. I love reading the Gospels and about the time Jesus spent here on earth. But, then as I make my way through Palm Sunday comes. This must have been an amazing day to witness but I cringe... I know what is coming. The betrayal of Jesus a … Continue reading He Calls Me By Name
I wanted to share a great story of God's grace in my life. I wanted to share with you like we were sitting together talking. So, I made a video.
my little girl began singing this that day I listened closely as she said
“You are treasured, you are beautiful, in the eyes...in the eyes, of the one who made you.
God's greatest story of grace the story of Salvation. The Gospel is the most amazing story of love that you will ever find. It is simple enough for a child to understand and so that is how I am going to talk about it today. Not that you are a child but there is no point … Continue reading God’s greatest story of grace
There were tears as I cried out to God: "This isn't fair... I already deal with so much with Grace. Why them too? I can't do this..."
BUT GOD - where He guides, He provides
With the weight of now having not one but multiple, with not some but all my children having some kind of special needs, I cried out to my God, My Father.
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” - 2 Corinthians 12:9a
I don't think I've ever been so excited about Summer Break before. This past year brought a lot of change for us. It has been amazing to see God open doors, place people in my (our) path and provide for things I could not have imagined
Awana means so much to me. As leaders, we hear the kids recite their verses and wonder if they are getting it. But let me tell you as a kid who grew up going to Awana, it is these verses that I learned as a child that I find myself going back to and the ones I know best.
On these days when I am tried... when I feel like I can't take one more step... when I cry out "I can't do all this". I will "lift my eyes to the mountains" and remember that my help, my strength, it comes from the Lord and when I can not He can.
They are His before they are mine.
Because I believe this to be true I know that I can trust Him with the plans and paths that He has for them.
Scripture teaches us that God hears our prayers and that He even answers them. I believe this with all my heart and I have seen Him answer my prayers before.
Last week I literally got to look into the face of an answered prayer.
In the last few months, God has turned my world upside down. I went from the busiest year homeschooling; Kinder, 2nd grade (with special needs) and 5th grade to God opening a door for all 3 kids to go to a charter school this fall.
Today is my daughter's 8th birthday, as we celebrate the life God has given her I couldn't help but think that I was once told that this baby may not live to be born. I was even given instructions on where to go abort her because she was thought to have so many defects.
