  • How to Refuel Fast

    You’re never going to believe what I said to both my boys the other day. But then again, you’re a mom too, so maybe it won’t be that much of a stretch. “You’re going to break my brain!” I blurted out in a moment of absolutely-gonna-lose-it-soon exhaustion. It must have adequately got my point across because both of them immediately stopped and became uncharacteristically silent. Don’t worry, though. Things quickly resumed to normal. They were soon making just as much noise as before, only this time it was fits of laughter over the absurdity of mom’s comment. Read More
  • Love Thy Neighbor

    I have lived in the same house since 2009. Taking my two small kids trick or treating this year around our cul-de-sac, a neighbor asked if we had just moved in. I guess in five years I hadn’t had time to meet someone who lived on the same street as me?! That following Sunday at church, our message was on The Art of Neighboring. Ever have those moments when you are like, ok God, I get it! That’s what happened to me. Read More

  • Two Necessities for Healthy Community – Do You Have Them?

    When the cool evening breezes were blowing, the man and his wife heard the Lord God walking about in the garden. So they hid from the Lord God among the trees. Then the Lord God called to the man, “Where are you?” (Genesis 3:8-9 NLT) Read More
  • 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

    Plus, Enter to Win 4 Tickets!

    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
  • Is Your Rush Causing You To Miss Out On Something?

    Last Christmas, I was rushing about, frustrated. I was distracted as I often am during the holidays. Every year I say I’m going to get better about scaling back so I can really keep my focus where it needs to be for the season. I have moments where I do this well. But I have other moments that are just plain pitiful. Honestly, I can be an utter nincompoop. Read More
  • Thanksgiving Casserole Bake

    I love Thanksgiving. I love that it’s a slow holiday. A reflective holiday. A holiday where there’s nothing to do but be together. I also love cooking. And I’d be dishonest if I didn’t admit that I love all the eating and deliciousness. {I also love the leftovers.} So today I’m sharing a recipe that I enjoy making with the leftover Thanksgiving goodness.

  • Remember a Child This Christmas Season with Angel Tree

    Visit www.spirit1053.com/angeltree to donate!

    You can help change the life of a prisoner’s child FOREVER. Every child has a story. For 2.7 million American children, that story is filled with the abandonment, loneliness and shame that come from having a mom or dad in prison. For many, it may also include following their parents down the same destructive road to incarceration. Angel Tree, a program of Prison Fellowship, reaches out to the children of inmates and their families with the love of Christ. This unique program gives your church an opportunity to share Christ’s love by helping to meet the physical, emotional, and spiritual needs of the families of prisoners. Read More
