But in the end, our biggest regrets will be the chances we didn’t take. When we are on our death beds, we won’t wish that we’d made more money, or spent more time at the office.

We will have wished that we loved when we had the chance.

That time when I couldn't find any photos of myself.... 
That night I saw how scandalously critical I’d been about myself, and how I’d missed the opportunity to capture unrepeatable moments with my girls...

A Letter to Moms on Mother's Day. 
Dear Mom, No, you didn't do it perfectly. You lost your temper when you should have given yourself a timeout. You delivered scoldings when you should have offered grace. You forgot to send the lunch money, got the wrong size shoes, counted Ketchup as a vegetable, and gave in too early. But

"The power comes from God. From the One who hears us. Who welcomes us. Who beckons us, daily, moment by moment, to turn back. To remember. To lose ourselves in Him instead of in the momentum of our overscheduled, too-full days." ~ Kelly O'Dell Stanley
Confessions From a So-Called "Prayer Expert" By Kelly O'Dell Stanley Whenever someone refers to me as an expert on prayer, I want to laugh out loud. Then I feel embarrassed for being such a hypocrite—after all, I did write a book about prayer. It’s not an illogical conclusion.

We ask God to strip our hearts of the stuff that is crowding out Jesus. We ask Him to fill our hearts with more of Him, which is more satisfying than what our inner critics demand of us. He offers exceedingly more than we could ask or imagine.
God saved my life the day I changed my prayers. I stopped asking Him to fix things. And I started asking Him to break things. Namely, my heart. God would need to break me out of the miserable heart-prison I was trapped in. Yeah, I was saved. But I was stuck. I would need Him to free me

Jesus wants you to make your bed. :) 
I made my bed this morning. This is kind of a big deal. Because not only did I make my bed, but it's the FOURTH DAY IN A ROW of making my bed. That is the longest streak of bed-making in my adult life. I stopped making my bed on a regular basis after I left home for college in 1990

If you need your hope restored in humanity, don't miss this story about a newborn fawn. 
Hey friend, Do you need a reason to have a little hope in humanity right now? Then, this one's for you. I shared this short story on my Facebook page last night. But I didn't want you to miss it, so I'm sharing it right here. It's a story about this baby deer -- minutes ol

We are not powerless. Tangible ways to help. 
It was nearly midnight. In the dark, all I could think about was a nine-year-old girl. I could see her in my mind -- dark-brown hair, eyes the shape of saucers, dirty bare feet. She stood motionless as the shadow of evil hollowed out her hope. Behind her, stood a figure, who was painted th

Some moms will get flowers or candy for Mother's Day. These six moms got houses. 
She was just like me. I knew it when we first met on a dirt path in Haiti. I knew it when I saw how she looked at her children -- with equal parts worry and affection. It was how she stacked the pots and pans, how she swept the floor, how she kept the clothes clean -- all of this keeping of a home

Who wants to win FOUR TICKETS TO WOMEN OF FAITH!!!???? I got 'em. Stop by the blog to win 'em.  
Invisible. That's how I felt twelve years ago when we moved back to my husband's family farm. I wanted friends, so I joined a Bible study, an exercise class, and a stay-at-home moms' group that met twice a month. Yeah, everyone was nice. But guess how many of them wanted

Spiritual Jealousy. It's a Thing.
How to Make Space for Grace When You Struggle With Spiritual Jealousy By Christin Ditchfield The first time I envied someone’s Bible, it was a good thing. I was still new to the high school youth group, still carrying the pristine white King James leather-bound children’s Bible my great-gran
