When the Unexpected Happens

When the Unexpected Happens #unexpected #life #stressedout #fear

I was sitting in the cold, bright room looking at my husband, who was laying down on the small, hard bed. The walls were a drab grey and everything appeared crisp and clean. Typical medical facility, I suppose. His shirt was un-buttoned and EKG wires were monitoring his heart. The doctors and nurses seemed rushed. I knew the looks on their faces. I knew the hushed tones. Several years before I’d worked in an ER setting long…

Hey there! So glad you’re here for this week’s link-up. You can read today’s feature over at Married by His Grace. Enjoy reading!

Grace: The One Thing That Never Changes

Grace never changes. It's the one thing that never changes in our lives. #grace #change

Change. Bleh. I mean, who likes change? Whether you’re fine with it or not, change sometimes just sucks, let’s be honest. But I love this truth from today’s feature, Sarah. “When the season’s of life change, God’s grace remains. When the winds of change blow, God’s grace remains. When we are on the ground, fearful of the future and weary from the past, God’s grace whispers, “Get up and fight.” She continues, “The only way to thrive…

Trusting God Amidst the Storm

Trusting God amidst the storm

One of the things I love about America is that she fights. Her spirit is brave. When disasters strike she stands tall, firm, and she survives. But hurricane’s Harvey and Irma certainly left their crushing, devastating mark on the residents of Houston, Florida and the Caribbean, didn’t they? I, like many others who don’t live near the affected areas watched the television in horror at the aftermath. Homes filled with water, debris, and sewage. Lives seemingly destroyed….

Grace: The Right Way

Grace. It’s my very favorite-ist of all favorites. I love today’s feature so much because Michelle talks about grace so beautifully. “The Bible says they’ll know us by our love for one another. I want to be that person. I want to be the one like I’ve heard myself saying of them, “this person has to be a Christian.” There’s no other explanation for their behavior. For their clear love for people.”- Michelle Skillern We should all strive to be…

I’m loving today’s feature! Why? Because I love to read, and I’ve never really posted about book suggestions so I thought this would be the perfect opportunity. I love Laura’s picks, too. Please check it out before heading over to the link-up. Here are 6 reads for the rest of your summer! Enjoy!

When Darkness Clouds Your Perspective | #FierceFriday

When Darkness Clouds Your Perspective

I always enjoy the view, the works of art, from 30,000 feet.  As the airplane crawls away from the hangar my kids get anxious and antsy, the little adrenaline junkies love the thrill of acceleration, nosing into the sky.  But me, I love the smooth and steady pace of cruising above the clouds and the perspective I gain from there. Recently I was watching clouds out the airplane window and was once again captivated.  The…

Blind Abandon Faith | #FierceFriday

What is blind abandon faith anyway?

What is blind abandon faith anyway? “By the world’s standards, our confidence in God is foolishness. They think we’re a bunch of blind people giving our lives over to what we cannot see. By faith’s standard that blind abandon is the very definition of hope—the expectation of a future blessing based on who God is despite what we see, feel, or think.” Faith and lessons learned. (not) It was a classic Southern California summer day….

When God’s Love is Fierce {Fierce Friday}


God’s love is fierce, and sometimes we’re not fully aware of how fierce it is for us until we look back and see all that it saved us from…especially ourselves. Brutal memories stuffed for the sake of survival began to surface throughout all three of my pregnancies, but most intensely with my last child, my only girl. With the memories of trauma and abuse came great fear. Fear that I didn’t have what it took…
