To My Gun Loving Friends

I know this is a touchy subject because I have friends on both sides of the issue.  That makes me want to approach it gently as to not offend the people whose opinions may be different than mine.  However, some things can’t be approached gently.  So, to my gun loving friends I have some questions.

A Larry Sized Legacy

Late last night I received news that a beloved friend, mentor, and teacher had passed away.  I knew it was a possibility because earlier that weekend I had read online about his heart struggling and his body fighting to gain strength.  Even still, when I heard the news, so many feelings overwhelmed me.  I laid […]

When Your Wedding Vows Lose Their Meaning

When my husband and I got married we were fairly young.  I was 22 and my husband was 21.  Though we had known one another for a few years, we only dated for a few short months before getting engaged, and then another few months before saying “I DO”.  Leading up to our wedding day […]

Parents, If We Don’t Teach Our Kids About Sex, The World Will

I must say I debated on writing this blog for fear of what others would think.  I debated on writing this blog because I know I’m far from an expert on this topic…and I debated on writing it because my kid is only four years old and let’s face it, we haven’t yet had to […]

Church, I Don’t Belong In The Corner #LessIsNotBest

I recently read a post by a friend.  I call her a friend because while I know her, served alongside her, and ate meals with her, we haven’t spoken in years.  All of that said, I call her friend because even in the distance, her words resonated so deeply and strongly with me.  In brief, […]

5 am Ponderings From A Restless Pastors’ Wife

I’ve wrestled for a while with the church. The picture Jesus paints, to me, looks very different from the building we see on each corner of Main Street throughout the Bible Belt. Don’t get me wrong, I love the church. I’ve seen the church do amazing things and it’s comforted me when I have needed […]

Girls Will Be Girls, What’s The Big Deal?

Sleepover talk is a totally normal thing.  I don’t see why everyone makes a big deal about it.  It’s not that out of the ordinary for a group of us girls to sit around eating chocolate, painting our fingernails while watching romantic movies and talking about all things boys right?  Can we talk about how […]

30 Days Of Thanks…with a twist.

November is just a few short weeks away. I’m counting down for a few reasons, but mostly because it means I’m closer to December, closer to Christmas which I adore. Truthfully, I love Fall in general. I love holiday seasons, family time, excuses to find new recipes, and the cool crisp air that comes with […]

Today I Wept

I woke up this morning with no specific expectations of what my day would hold.  I thought that my day would go about as any normal Sunday typically does.  Church, lunch with family, rest in the afternoon, then church again in the evening.  I was wrong, so wrong.  Even with as few expectations as I […]
