The Excellent Wife: Week 7 Homework

Hey wifey friend. As I was driving to our gathering on Friday, I felt the Holy Spirit begin to whisper to me. I was passing all of these gorgeous trees on my drive. Trees full of beautiful colors. Leaves turning browns and oranges and adoring shades of autumn. Leaves that, at any moment, will fall…

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

Isn’t it funny how the Lord speaks? He speaks through people. He speaks through silence. He speaks through the words of worship. Here lately, as these past few weeks have slowly crept on, I’ve found myself asking Jesus for specific things. I see this adoption process, this wait coming to an end. This brings an…

To the girl who…doesn’t know what to do.

“Decisions are the worst…” One of my ALL TIME FAVORITE MOVIE QUOTES EVER from one of my ALL TIME FAVORITE MOVIES: Girls Just Wanna Have Fun. Forget the fact that the girl who said this in the movie was having a ridiculously difficult time deciding what to wear out of her massive million dollar closet….

To the girl who…questions if God wants you.

OK…so what is it? You know, that thing, person, place that keeps you from experiencing God? For me, many times its all three. I go throughout my day questioning where God is, what He’s up to, or to be perfectly honest, if I am even hearing Him? I get so wrapped up in where He…

To the girl who…is unloved.

Do you feel unloved today? Have you found yourself alone, longing for love but unable to see it, feel it, experience it? Are you the mom who’s walking this journey of raising your baby single? Has the man in your life, the man who promised to love you forever and always on that altar, left…

To the woman who…needs a word.

“Alabaster Box” “While He (Jesus) was eating, a woman (Lazarus’ sister, Mary) came in with a beautiful alabaster jar of expensive perfume and poured it over His head”. Matthew 26:7 “She has poured this perfume on me to prepare my body for burial. I tell you the truth wherever the Good News is preached throughout…

To the girl who…wants to do something great for God.

Hey God. I know I’m no one special. I know I’m small. I know that there are so many other women out there doing massive things for you. Speaking to thousands. Singing to the masses. Leading ministries that are literally changing not just my country, but the world. I see so many of them all…

To the woman who…needs a word.

“You are loved” Do you ever ponder whether or not you are loved? Do you ever feel unloveable? Do you ever buy into the lie that you aren’t loved at all? “But God showed His great love for us by sending Christ to die for us while we were still sinners”. Romans 5:8 The cross…a…

To the woman who…needs a word.

To the woman who needs a word… This morning a Southern Living magazine catches my eye. My first thought is our southern charm and hospitality in the south. Hospitality = generous and friendly treatment of visitors and guests; the activity of providing food, drinks, etc…for people who are guests or customers of an organization. “When…

To the girl who…feels so undeserving.

How could you be so good to me Lord? How could you pour good gifts on me? How could you bless me? How is it that day after your day your goodness never fails me? I’m so undeserving. Because while you continue to remain faithful to me, while you continue to lavish me with undening…

To the woman who…needs a word.

 “The eyes of the Lord search the whole earth in order to strengthen those whose hearts are fully committed to Him…”                                                                    …

To the woman who…needs a word.

“Potters Hands” “And yet, O Lord, You are our Father. We are the clay, and You are the Potter. We are formed by Your hand”.                                                            …
