You may roll your eyes at our story, and believe, like the rest of the world, that we were so naive meeting so young and being each other’s first TRUE love. While many of you may have seen us the 9 years of marriage (14+ years together, and 18+ years of great friendship + middle […]

Daily Pursuit | Celebrating 9 Years of Marriage!

“People always say to me ‘I don’t know how you do it with two. I can’t do it with one.’ And I’ll always say, the first is your hardest. And the other truth, no one has it all together. I had never been more shocked, more overwhelmed and more sleep deprived ever in my life. […]

No One Has It All Together (Even Becky With The Great Hair)

Squeals from my 4-year-old at the top of the stairs as her little legs caught up with her big girl plans yelled, “Mommy I can’ttttt. I just can’t go any further alone, I need help.” As I rushed to her aide, it made me think… How many times have I tried to find strength all […]

Building A Village | A Culture’s Cry For Community

Why Do Toddlers Need So Much Attention? As I sit here trying to write this, the joyful squeals of young kids fill the air. The attention seeking shouts of “Mommy, look!” and “Me do it!” echo through the play structure tunnels and down the slides like a megaphone bringing smiles to every parent in the […]

Attention Seeking vs Connection Seeking

It’s November, which hand-in-hand goes along with thankfulness. However, this month, we’re asking you to join us on a 30-day pursuit of growing in gratitude through the Word of God.

4 Toddler Friendly Halloween Activities [For the Christian Home]

Have you ever walked through a season of grief? Days you can barely wake up, crippling grief? Or maybe you’ve walked through that season of grief with someone. I’m talking real, messy, nearly-unbearable-grief. One thing we have lost in our culture is the acceptance of true mourning. We need a period of time set aside […]

Releasing Grief | Walking With Those Who Weep

So she was one of the [many] moms that gave me a pep talk before becoming a mom. But not the pep talk like, “oh you can do it, you’re going to be a great mom” No, the honest -real life-mama-bear- pep talk. You know, that mom. The call-in-all-hours-of-the-night mom in your village. Everyone needs […]

THAT Mom – Be Her | A Doubting Mom’s Reminder To Pause

Four years, and a million little miracles later, here we are. Your birth… Wishing our sweet little Luella a happy FOURTH birthday… (How did THAT happen?!) But let’s rewind 4 years ago…to her birth… to the day she took her first breath in our arms, and I almost took my last. I had always imagined […]

Four Years And a Million Little Miracles Later

I feel like there are so many guys these days who don’t understand or care what it means to be a real man. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not claiming to be the perfect guy or have it all figured out by any means, but it’s just mind-blowing how clueless and careless some guys are! […]
