Instead of Wishing

Instead of wishing, ask; seek; knock.

Your future is your’s. Not someone else’s to determine who you should be and what you should do.

Be willing to accept the path God’s planned for you. Ask to accept that plan.

When you do, big things can happen. keep reading

Coffee Cookies and Coloring

coffee cookies coloring

Tonight we were supposed to go to The Lantern Fest, but hopefully everyone who snagged tickets (THANK YOU!) realized it was postponed until June 4. Instead, the kids and I spent the evening inside with some coffee, cookies, and coloring.

Okay. They didn’t have coffee. They had cookies. And…they didn’t color. They watched me. And they asked a lot of questions. keep reading

Is there anything greater than being a kid and getting chosen anywhere but last in the kickball line? There is, actually. 

We are all chosen. All of us.

You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit—fruit that will last—and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you. keep reading

Sunday (aside from being Mother’s Day) included church, as our Sundays do. As usual, I found myself with tears streaming down my face following worship, not wanting it to end, needing it not to end. The message was an explanation of the kinds of baptism. keep reading

Oh, It’s On

Over the past few weeks, we’ve started tackling a few projects around the house. Things are starting to get real up in here. Let me tell you, oh, it’s on.

I’m not going to lie to you and say that our house is always super clean. This house is lived in, and that’s the way we like it. We are working on getting things more in order from the inside out. keep reading

Raise ’em Up


On Mother’s Day (May 10), Ava and Isla were baptized by their Pappy at East Brady UMC. What a special day and way to dedicate our babies to live a life in faith steps.

Raise em’ up
Trophy high
Raise em’ up
To the sky
Raise em’ up
Show everybody that new born smile
Raise em’ up
Tall and strong
Raise em’ up
Right from wrong
Raise em’ up so damn high they can hear God singing along keep reading

Girls Week 2014

Last week, I got the chance to bring my best friend to the Resting Place to join me for Girls Week 2014. Our time was all too short, so now I am going to whine a bit. You know how I do.

Missy and I left her house at 6:00 PM last Friday after I pulled out of work at 4. We had a full tank of gas, cds that were with us in high school, and high energy. We were trying really hard to beat the snow to Holidaysburg, a crazy hilly area in PA. At the outskirts of Indiana, it was clear it wasn’t happening. keep reading

Wordy Wednesday: Got to Have Faith


Days 13-15 of 2014 have been a test. Someone definitely knows my word of the year and he is bringing craziness our way.

But thought the crazy, blessings.

I needed brakes on my car and not 20 minutes after I learned this, an opportunity came through to handle the cost. A true lesson in when you don’t know what to say, pray. keep reading

Faithful Beginnings

While on vacation, we attended our friend Dustin’s church. I’ve been before, but really felt the presence of God this time. A young man shared his story of coming to a life enriched by faith and the Pastor spoke about plans for 2014’s faith study. keep reading
