    Inspiration for Your Mountain

    August 22, 2017

    The mountains set before you, they’re yours to conquer.  You climb for growth and perspective, and more than that, you climb because something inside you tells you to.  Your purpose pulls you. Some days you walk, other days you run.  Then there are days you rest quietly.  No matter the choice of action, you’ve kept going.

    Dear Mom, You Have Influence For A Hurting World

    August 19, 2017

    Every morning I follow the worn path to my coffee pot … with robe and hair both tied messily, I climb the stairs to my office.  Before the house wakes and questions need answered, problems need solving and schooling requires focus … I rest in quiet, coffee savoring, peace.   I’m a stay at home […]

    The Other Side of the Fence

    August 17, 2017

    My back yard has a privacy fence.  Except for the squirrel with 007 skills and the skunk that came for peanut butter, the fence serves its purpose well, keeping onlookers out.  Standing 6ft tall, it guards the private sector of my outside world.   The fence hides me.  Within a rectangle, I can move freely!  […]

    Quiet Invitation

    August 13, 2017

    Quiet places rarely happen.  Having a quiet mind and stillness of body is rare these days.  From the moment our feet touch the floor we invade a noisy space of accomplished tasks.  Our minds begin an hourly journey of sorting and analyzing.   Quiet is rare.   Stepping outside, my bare feet are welcomed by […]

    August 2, 2017

    I’ve never spoke to a parent who didn’t want to see their kids excel at something; sports, creativity, education … we get excited when our kids get excited!  We want to set our children up for an an abundant life with all that encompasses health.  I have three ways that guarantee an explosion of creative and […]

    Unfriended

    July 31, 2017

    It’s not the unfriended action that hurts, it’s the realization that the relationship was pondered and purposefully ended with a quiet click. I’d be foolish to think every friend on face book was truly a friend, most are acquaintances, people I’ve met that I don’t mind sharing pieces of my life with. What about the friends […]

    Mom Graduate, Now What?

    July 25, 2017

    Why didn’t someone tell me training my daughters to become adults would push me out of a job?  We bring these precious babies home and our life dramatically changes.  Diapers, all through the night feedings, fevers, ouchies, giggles and endless love … we are, The Mom.  Slowly the diapers are exchanged with big girl undies, […]

    Jesus Laughed

    July 16, 2017

    I’ve wondered from time to time what Jesus’ laugh sounded like? Do you think it sounded jolly like Santa with a “Ho,Ho,Ho”?  Perhaps it broke out in one exuberant “HAAA!”   The idea of listening to Jesus laugh sounds like a foreign concept.  Growing from childhood to adulthood has a way of silencing our laugh.

    Letting Love Be Bigger Than Fears

    May 31, 2017

    Every new beginning for your child is a birthing place for you. ⋅ We labor to give them life, then freedoms … The milestones seem big when they’re little. Walking, talking and then running, soon feel like you’ve trained them to run away with your heart enclosed in their wild zest for life apart from […]

    Lessons of a Healing

    April 26, 2017

    “You will be healed by Easter.”   These were words Father spoke to me in March.  Tucking them securely in my heart, not telling anyone … I continued on with daily headaches and doctor appointments.  Oddly, even in pain, I could feel my excitement growing.   Easter day I took my last dose of prescribed […]

    Treasure Found In Sand

    April 12, 2017

    Every morning my eyes would open to the first beams of the light shining over the waves of the Florida coast, as if the horizon was opening her eyes with me.  It was time; time for me to run to the beach and troll for treasure!  Surely the tide washed in some wonderful shells for […]

    Walking Through Mysteries

    March 23, 2017

    Healing.   Honestly, I didn’t know if I would get to write this.  I’ve battled headaches for over 25 years.  The last six months have been too painful to express without it sounding like complaining.  I’ve been focused on my family and homeschooling.  When you have limited strength you focus your strength on the most important […]
