To the girl who…is so ready to be a mama.

To the high school girl who is so ready to be a mama. You don’t share this desire with many people around you for fear of odd stares, but deep down, it’s there. To the single girl who’s heart is so ready to start your family. So ready to wash dirty hands and scrub little…

Ashleigh & Brett’s Adoption Journey…Love on the Line

Ashleigh’s Journey…Seeing HIM through HER.

To the girl who’s…hearing Jesus say no.

I am asking Jesus for a desire in my life…and I am hearing Him tell me no…or at least, not yet. Ever been here? We take the verse Psalm 37:4 and we stretch it out to cover our wants. “Delight yourself in the Lord and He will give you the desires of your heart.” This…

Flourishing through Esther…Choosing the Unlikely.
