Book recommendation

I just read the book The Brave Art of Motherhood by Rachel Marie Martin. I had the blessed opportunity to be selected as a part of the Book Launch team. I’ve posted my review to goodreads and would definitely recommend it to any mother who doesn’t have enough me time. Or feels like their failing….

A confident expectation

April 30th was a one year anniversary of the start of the biggest trial of our lives. The news we received that day was so dark, so absurd, and shattering. It’s been one year and our lives are forever changed and so different now. Betrayal was a word that I thought I was familiar with…

Never too far gone…

Yesterday my husband taught the Sunday School lesson. Seriously there is no prouder moment for me as a wife than seeing my husband preach the word of God as eloquent as he does.

When your child is the teacher

My son has so much passion for Jesus. His faith is always on fire and he is always challenging himself to take it to the next level. I absolutely love this about him! You see, I didn’t get the chance to grow in a church going, God-loving home, so I love to see him be…

Jesus drank wine, but so can I?

i’m happy to say that it is been five years since I’ve drink alcohol! It is been a very hard five years to not consume the very drink that used to make me feel better about myself. This was the one drink that I could turn to on a very bad day that would make…
