GUEST POST by Paula A. Lambert, author of This Season of Hope “… And what does the Lord require of you?  To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8 NIV My closest friends know I haven’t always been a rule follower. It’s true I guess to some degree. I often push the limits of whatever I’m confronted with. As you might imagine, this approach has not always worked out very well. While on... Read more

GUEST BLOG by Jess Robichaud of Radiant Marriage Just 5 months into our marriage, I had to take a stand. I ended up leaving my husband the day before our first Thanksgiving as a married couple. When I look back on that day that I left, I am beyond thankful for so many things. God orchestrated all of the events and timing in the best way possible. My parents were in town and were there to help me, there was a... Read more

GUEST POST by Lauren Henderson   I don’t know about you, but as each new year approaches, I get this whim of excitement about how the coming year is going to better than the last. I begin to make a list of the improvements I want to make in my life; I want to eat healthier, work out more, balance my relationships better, create new experiences with my family, the list goes on… But, what I found was, I had all of... Read more

I LOVE Christmas.  I had my tree up and house decorated before Thanksgiving this year, even though my poor neighbors could have probably done without the extra days of staring at our Christmas weiner dog inflatable or our obnoxiously large, twinkling, and waving snowman.  I am giddy putting up all the decorations while watching all the sweet, sometimes cheesy, Christmas movies on the Hallmark Channel.  The “Christmas in July” marathon that happens on a few channels during the summer doesn’t... Read more

GUEST POST by Jess and Adam Robichaud of Radiant Marriage What is it about the DIY movement? There’s something about doing things ourselves that is looked so fondly upon by so many in our daily lives. It’s a great thing, but it can be dangerous or even toxic if you apply it to your life or your marriage (more…) Read more

Sweet Mama, are you having a rough day? If we are all being honest, every single mother out there would admit that she’s had her share of rough days where she feels defeated and depleted. You are not alone, friend. Maybe the day got off to a rocky start and you lost your temper on your kiddos. Maybe your kids haven’t been listening well all day, and you’ve had just enough of the angst-filled attitudes. Maybe you are just simply... Read more

After moving halfway across the country this summer, I am reminded of the great importance that friendship plays in our lives–especially as mothers. We desperately need women in our life that we can relate to and people who embrace us just as we are. I have moved before, and I know that true friendships take time to develop. But, I think I forgot how awkward this can be. I honestly feel like I’m in middle school all over again in... Read more

I was watching Today one morning, and one story in particular caught my attention. Apparently, a mom in the Chicago area was surprised to find police officers and child services at her front door all due to the fact that she allowed her eight year-old daughter walk their dog around the neighborhood all by herself. A concerned neighbor had called the police and alerted child services because she believed the child was too young and could be in danger. As a... Read more

When Dave and I got married, I made a really silly assumption. I honestly assumed that the longer we were married, the less words we’d have to share. We would just know what the other was going to say before he/she ever said it. We would be so in sync that glances and body language would just say it all. We would pretty much be able to read each other’s minds. Over the years, I’ve realized that this is a... Read more

The world defines love as a feeling and something we fall in and out of, which means we can lose the love that someone has already given us.  This is especially disheartening when it comes to marriage.  If love is just a fickle feeling, then how in the world can any of us stay married for life? The truth is, we can’t…if THAT’S love.  But, don’t worry. This is GOOD NEWS… Click CONTINUE for more on this. (more…) Read more
