Mother presents me daily with a myriad of lessons. However, the most common – and most painful – is the
daily hourly lesson of just how extremely selfish I truly am. Motherhood confronts every natural comfort, desire and longing. It stands in direct contrast to what comes easily to me – serving myself.
However, every now and then by grace alone, I am able to get beyond myself and tread on holy ground. Join me at a The Better Mom as I share the story of one of those times that happened a few years ago.
If you’ve just joined us here from The Better Mom, I want to say thank you so much for stopping by! I hope you will make yourself at home, look around awhile, and maybe even introduce yourself.
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.
If you’ve just clicked over from The Better Mom, please let me welcome you! Make yourself at home, look around awhile and then tell us what your most favorite this is about Fall!
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.
If you’ve just clicked over from The Better Mom, I want to welcome you! I’m so glad you’re here!! Pull up a chair, a warm cuppa, and make yourself at home.
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.
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!
So, hop on over and say hello!
If you’ve just clicked over from The Better Mom, I want to say, Herzlich Willkommen! Grab a Cafe Melange, get comfy and hang out awhile!
