Waiting Well

November 28, 2018

  “Wait for the Lord; be strong, and let your heart take courage; wait for the Lord!”  Psalm 27:14 Driving up the “hill” to the iconic Mulholland Drive today, I had a flashback to this time of year in 2008. I had just left my OB’s office, pregnant with my first baby. Dr. M had […]

Ready for New

December 12, 2017

“Forget the former things; do not dwell on the past. See, I am doing a new thing! Now it springs up; do you not perceive it? I am making a way in the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.” Isaiah 43:18, 19 Sunday afternoon, I attended an annual Christmas party with an incredible group of […]

This Christmas, Look Up

November 28, 2017

“God is within her, she will not fall; God will help her at the break of day.” Psalm 46:5 As we enter into the Christmas season, I am always struck with the awe of thinking of Mary and what the approaching birth of Christ must have been like for her. My heart is for the […]

Seeing Clearly

April 5, 2017

“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his mercies never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23  As I snuggled with my 2-year-old in a tiny toddler bed after another long day of caring for four young children, I asked the Lord how my husband and […]

A Giant Return

April 15, 2016

“A cheerful heart is good medicine, but a crushed spirit dries up the bones.” Proverbs 17:22 This is my favorite Tax Day EVER! Not because of a giant return of funds, (though I am very thankful for a good one), but for a giant return of HEALTH for our sweet Haven. At her follow-up appointment […]

Faith in the Fear

February 3, 2016

“I will say of the Lord, ‘He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.’” Psalm 91:1 I read these words in a frantic whisper as the noise of twenty people saving a baby’s life swirled around me with “code white, code white, code white” ringing in my ears and overhead. […]

The Power of Weakness

January 15, 2016

“He gives strength to the weary and increases the power of the weak.” Isaiah 40:29 I’ve often heard moms say that motherhood is like having your heart walk around outside of your body. Quite honestly, I think that is a bit cheesy, but this past month it kind of sums up exactly how I have […]

From Miss America to Motherhood

September 13, 2015

“They lay their crowns before the throne and say, ‘You are worthy, our Lord and God to receive glory and honor and power, for you created all things and by your will they were created and have their being.’ “ Revelation 4:10,11 Tonight is the 95th Miss America Pageant and I can’t wait to watch!

What is Life Worth?

July 21, 2015

“See how the precious children of Jerusalem, worth their weight in fine gold, are now treated like pots of clay made by a common potter.” Lamentations 4:2 My heart has always been heavy for the unborn and for the mothers who choose to abort them. I find myself in tears every time that the issue […]

You Hold My Head Up

April 2, 2015

Morning light is flooding in and loud toddler voices echo from the kitchen as I rub my eyes after a very sleepless night. My sweet newborn just could not get comfortable and needed me to take care of her in every way. She can do nothing for herself- she can’t even hold her head up […]
