New Season, New Peace

Friends, I’m tired. It’s been a crazy year and a long, crazy summer. I’m really looking forward to the quieter season Fall seems to be in my mind (even though I know it is no less full of activity).

I’ve felt a deeper sense and need than ever to usher some peace into my home and family in this new season. How about you? Could your home use some peace? Join me at The Better Mom today as I share 4 Steps to a More Peaceful Home this Fall.

When the World – and God – Seems Against You

Have you ever felt like the world is out to get you? Or maybe it’s God that is against you. He’s displeased with your version of faith and has turned his back on you and turned his favor toward someone else?

Yeah, I’ve felt that way, too. It can be easy to feel that way when nothing seems to be going in your favor.

Join me today at The Better Mom as I share 5 Truths for When the World Seems Against You.

Dr. Jekyll and Mom Hyde

I have not been the wife or mother that I long to be lately. I’ve been terse, curt and snappy. My compassion has waned of late.

In desperation I turned to the one place I could find lasting help – The Bible. I am still prayerfully working on allowing the Word of God to transform me to be more like Christ – with a loving, giving attitude – but I wanted to share with you all today 5 verses that are helping to refill my Compassion Tank.

Join me at The Better Mom for 5 Verses for When Your Compassion is Running Low.

A Little Bit of My Story

Who We AreHave you ever wondered how in the world my family and I ended up halfway around the world from home?

Do you ever wonder why I started writing?

Well today, dear friend, you’re in luck because all your questions will be answered! Well, maybe not all, but I’m telling a little bit of my story over at The Better Mom. Our June series over there is Who We Are. It’s a chance for all of us who contribute there to share a bit about who we are – and hopefully learn a bit about who you are, too!
