When I need a reminder

Is there anyone else out there who needs to set at least two reminders for every calendar appointment on your phone? It’s like, if you could set five reminders, you would. Just me? I’ve never considered myself a terribly forgetful person, but after becoming a mom, my ability to forget…

The ache in our souls

When is the last time someone asked you, “How are you?” and you actually answered honestly? Think about it for awhile. Life is busy, and our human interactions come and go so quickly anymore. A quick “Hello. How are you?” is sometimes the only invitation to authenticity and vulnerability we…

How long? A look at Psalm 13

Every single time I find myself in a trial or hardship, my tendency is to ask God, “Why?” Anybody else? From the time I was a little child, I’ve needed to know the why behind the what. I think it drove my mom a bit crazy along with most of…

A clean slate, a fresh start, 2017

With the beginning of a new year, my mind always races at the possibilities that it can hold. What great adventures will be had within these next twelve months? What goals will be reached? What difficulty will come? How will this year be any different than the last? Perhaps that…

Broken is beautiful

“The sacrifice you desire is a broken spirit. You will not reject a broken and repentant heart, O God.” Psalm 51:17 I am not a stranger to Psalm 51. Over the past 15 years of my life, I’ve spent more time in Psalm 51 than perhaps any other Psalm in…
