I’ve been wanting and needing to blog and have had absolutely no time to do it. Not to mention that both Edie and I have been sick and our schedule has hit the ultimate level of busyness. I have all of 20 minutes to write now, so let’s see what we can do with it. Mark’s parents come this week, and we are so, so looking forward to seeing them....

a birthing season

This past month has been such a weird mix of emotions, thoughts, patterns, and just stuff. After running, running, running today, I found myself feeling super stretched by all that’s going on right now. And the thought that kept coming up throughout the day was “when in a stretching season, it’s time to get flexible.” I am the least flexible...

prepared for such a time as this

I’m so thankful for God’s wisdom and goodness. So thankful and so much in awe of Him. This past week was unbelievably busy, and this next week will be no different. I drove 17 hours west with my sister last weekend as I went with her to South Lake Tahoe where she will be a student of missions for 6 weeks. I’ve made the drive between Colorado and...

Ever since reading the news that Robin Williams had died, I’ve been thinking on death and depression. And honestly, I had to just get off of social media, because so many people’s words bothered me. As if any of us knew the actor, as if any of us absolutely know where he is now, and as if it’s our place to even give our opinion on his life and death. It just...

to wait on the Lord

I woke up at 5 this morning, and since the house was perfectly quiet, I decided to stay up and put in a good amount of prayer time. I’ve desperately needed some quiet time with the Lord. I’ve needed to hear from Him, get some wisdom, and learn how to walk out this path that we’re on. And I heard one thing this morning, which was “wait on...

resting = faith

I’m sure that if I dug through my 8 years of writing on this blog I would find a post very similar to the one I’m about to write. Yet sometimes, when we’re in times of feeling like we’re in the fire, it’s good to go back to the areas of life where God has walked us through to victory and remind ourselves of those lessons and those...

simply trust and obey

This month has flown by and with it have come many changes. I’m now working two jobs; partly from home, partly at night, and with all the flexibility I need. It’s the first time in my journey as a mom that I’ve been home with my kids all day long, and I can’t say it’s been easy! Nor do I really recommend having three little ones in four...
