What if...
One message has been whispered into my heart and mind over the last couple of days. God is God, and I am not. It's been said in different ways, but that phrase sums it up most simply. Friday found me angry.  Broken and angry and shaking my fist at God.  Que...

Singing on a bad day...
"Mommy, why you singin'?" "Because singing makes me happier, and I've had a bad day." A few minutes later... "Bwess da Woord, ah my tole...  I had a bad day, but singin' make me happy." Well, if nothing else, my children will learn some good songs and that ...

What I Should Be Praying
Once again, my child is challenging and growing my faith. My mind is spinning, I'm researching symptoms and conditions and treatments.  And my gut is once again telling me there's a problem.  It hasn't been too far off base yet... and this time, the treatme...

A Glimpse
I think I received a glimpse into my child's world today. It wasn't pretty.  It was uncomfortable.  I described it as "my senses have been raped.  Violently assaulted."   Since the birth of my third child, my womanly hormones have turned vicious. Once a mon...

What happened to self-discipline?
I am concerned. There is this terrific sounding app coming out by Proverbs 31 ministries (a great organization, imo).  It's called First 5.  And in the promotional e-mail, they had this to say: I'm all for getting women to read their Bibles.  I'm a better m...
