What To Do When You Feel Weak

We all have days when we feel like we’re just not enough.

You know… strong enough, smart enough, creative enough, motivated enough, or whatever your “enough” is!

Every woman has felt that way. And, when we do, we can start believing the lie that says how we feel is who we are.


Right? Surely, I am not the only one?!

Oh girl, I know I’m not the only one.

Three Boundaries That Will Set You Free

Oh girl, I need boundaries!

Just like a child is more secure when she has boundaries, I am learning that I am more free to be me when I have boundaries too.

As I’m learning how to identify with my identity and find myself in God’s view of me, I am learning that boundaries help me.


Boundaries help me stay close to God and my true identity.

Cooking with the Blind and the Blonde: Recipe for No-Bake Energy Bites

So, Sunday night I decided to be spontaneous with my friend Angela and turn on Periscope while we made No-Bake Energy Bites.

The result was laughter and lots of Periscopers joining us in my kitchen.

Lots of women asked for the recipe and I told them I would give it to them right here on my blog. So, here it is sisters!


It’s easy, fast and so, so good! And, if you aren’t on Periscope yet, join me on Periscope to get in on the fun!

What Are You Teaching Your Child About God?

The first words from a first born baby are just the best, aren’t they?

Our first child’s first word was… wait for it… wait for it… ball!

Yep, not original, but, girl, I wrote it down in the baby book, called my mom and was so excited I could have started a blog dedicated to his brilliance.
Then, he added words, but only a few. He called my husband “Dadda” and he could also say “up” when he wanted out of his crib.

No Mom-of-the-Year Award for Me

There’s something about routine that brings me comfort. I know what to expect and what each new day will bring.

But, there’s also something about routine – about the dailiness of life – that can make me feel stuck.

I start to feel trapped in my very own life.

Have you ever felt swallowed up in the dailiness of your life — doing the same old chores and tasks over and over and over again?
