A team of mountain climbers was scaling Mount Everest, and they camped below the summit. Another team was returning from the top and saw them camped there.
“Why are you camped?” they wanted to know.
“We are waiting for our map,” they…Continue

It has been a while since I have last updated y'all on our half marathon training progress and seeing that the blog is steadily growing, I figured now would be a good time to do so.…

Dear Christian Broadcasting Network,
It is with a heavy and grievous heart that I am writing these words to you. I am both saddened and appalled with the statements made by Pat Robertson regarding international adoption on the 700 Club that aired Thursday August 16, 2012. In response to a letter your network received from a mother seeking advice on how to react to men not wanting to date her when they discover that she has 3 internationally adopted…

This is an older post of mine, but one of my favorites none the less
Several weeks ago my sons and I were at the kitchen table eating breakfast when Hayden, our 5 year old, dropped some crumbs on the floor by accident. Now, this kind of thing happens on a somewhat regular basis and is in no way out of the norm for those who…Continue

When I was a little girl and we visited my grandmother in Lampasas, Texas, a moment always arrived, early in our visit, when we would trot obediently over to my grandmother’s next-door neighbor’s house. Mrs. Porter seemed like she was about a thousand and three years old to me, and she was older than my grandmother, which probably means Mrs. Porter was in her seventies. In any case, I remember her as a gentle, welcoming woman, and even though I’d be willing to bet that the conversations I…Continue

"Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God." Matthew 5:9
Like most people, I've spent much of my life believing that I'm basically a good person, doing the best I can. However, nothing has ever exposed my flaws more quickly and thoroughly than becoming a mother.
The flaw that looms largest over me each day is my selfishness. Now, I've never…Continue

Last week I came fully to the realization that there is nothing to me other than David, Eben, and all the housework that comes with them. I've lost myself in motherhood, feeling as though there is nothing left of me. Or, even more frighteningly, that there wasn't much there to begin with.
Is my worth really so dependent upon how much money I make or how interesting my leisure…Continue

Yesterday, one of Ricky’s cousins found out some really great news. He’s been given an amazing opportunity to follow his dream and turn it into a reality! Last night, Ricky talked to him about it and he was very excited – and also a little scared. I understand that fear. Taking the leap of faith to follow a dream that you’ve held so close to your heart – and realizing that it’s now or never, succeed or fail – is daunting...Continue reading at …Continue

The quiet strength of his soul whispering as he stood
sentinel at her bedside. Her life as fragile as his faith
strong. The moments unknown he never faltered, faithful
father surrendering his heart to a will not his own.
God's plan. Softly he stood by her with a heart of hope,
gently touching souls. His faith strong made a fragile life
begin to bloom. Days passed as their hearts melted together in…Continue
