“What are your greatest child training tips?” Every time someone asks me this, my mind draws a blank! I am not an expert, nor do I have the answers. In fact, it feels like the more kids I have had, even the answers I thought I had no longer seem to work. But recently whenContinue reading “Lessons I’ve Learned as a Mom”
I love crafts and diys! My home is filled with things I have made with my own hand, and Christmas is no different! Each year we have added a few more decorations to the tree, and it only seems to be more beautiful. I love to grab a couple decorations after Christmas during sales, butContinue reading “A Handmade Christmas”
I was an avid reader all growing up, really up until I had kids. I just couldn’t find time when I had so many little ones running around and needing so much. Recently I have started reading again, nonfiction, to get the encouragement and wisdom I need as a christian, mother, and wife. I haveContinue reading “Good Books Are Like Godly Counsellors”
“But David encouraged himself in the Lord.” 1 Samuel 30:6 This verse comes to my mind every time I am faced with discouragement. Everyone had turned against David, and even thought of stoning him. The verse says he was greatly distressed…”but David encouraged himself in the Lord.” Years ago when we were in Ukraine, I was facedContinue reading “When Distress Comes”
Journal entry on April 30th… “Verily, verily, I say unto you, Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit.” John 12:24 This verse has come to my mind several times recently. I have a choice. No one is making me serveContinue reading “For a Seed to Grow”

BUT GOD KNEW, and has been preparing our hearts over the last year. As some of you know, the LordContinue reading “Where He Leads”

He was safe in the boat. Yet he wanted that opportunity to walk on the water. So he asked to leaveContinue reading “Bid Me To Come”
As the plane took off in Evansville, the skies were clear blue with cotton clouds in the skies. It was absolutely beautiful! I could not help but think of how great the Lord is, how He would be mindful of me, so small! Only about 5-6 hours before I would be home! After a briefContinue reading “Sometimes Through the Storms”
My life sometimes feels full of noise! From morning to night, it is hardy ever quiet. Being a mom of six, this is probably not surprising, but it is not just the noise of early rising children that fills my mind. My mind is also full of the tasks of the day – or onesContinue reading “Is Noise Blocking God’s Voice?”
I’ve been sharing about joy on the blog, not the joy the word gives, but the joy the Lord gives – A peace that passeth all understanding.
