Thank You For Chex Mix

As I was doing research on the first Thanksgiving, I found out that the only females left alive after those first awful years of sickness and starvation were four women and two teen girls. It is said that those six women alone cooked the food for the entire settlement and all of their guests on feast day. I could relate to those ladies! Read more...

Mom Meet Up: Warm Beach Lights of Christmas

When I think of the Christmas season, one of the first things that enters my mind is the Warm Beach Lights of Christmas. We started going over 10 years ago in our early dating days, which transformed to the newlywed days. The next year, a tiny baby boy joined us and then two more baby girls join us now. It’s definitely a favorite family tradition that we all eagerly anticipate every year. Read more...

Dear Penelope

I never wanted a daughter. Being a young girl once and currently having a ministry that caters to young women, I was all too aware of the pitfalls and trials that accompany having a daughter. And to be frank, I didn’t want any of that. Read more...

What I Love About Gratitude

It was just a few days ago. The day had only just begun and the thought of having a day completely at home with my kids spiraled me into a sad place. You’d think that after being a “stay at home” mom for the last 5 years, I’d totally have it down by now. The truth is---although I wouldn’t change a thing, sometimes the days still feel monotonous. Sometimes it takes a lot of effort to turn what could be a hard day into the kind of day that I’ll feel good about after the kids are tucked in. Read more...

Angela's Be Still Challenge

A few weeks ago, my friend Rebecca gave me challenge. She said, “Be still. Try doing nothing for 20 minutes and then I’d like you to write about it.” When she suggested this, I was immediately on board. What I didn’t expect is what I’d hear during those 20 minutes of stillness. Read more...

We're In This Together

Remember the ALS ice bucket challenge where otherwise sane people poured ice water on their heads? It became a global phenomenon. And, really why did so many people take part in the craziness? This world is a big place and we are separated not only geographically, but by our belief systems, our politics, our ages, and countless other things. It seems there are more things separating us than there are bringing us together and sometimes it feels downright lonely, doesn't it? Read more...
