One year as Virginians

One year of amazement summed up in two words: ONLY GOD! That’s correct. I can not possibly mention everything over the last year but I can share a few examples. Everything fell into place perfectly as only He could. From the job offer to move in 40 days! 40 days from praying, packing, researching, learning,…

The Easter that binds us all

This Easter is unlike any other. We are all in the same boat. Our focus is away from the busyness, outfits, and the commercialization of Easter. Our focus is on a hurting world. It’s a new and different Easter at home without many of our traditions. Easter is still the same though. The resurrection of…

Update by the numbers

6 months • In our new environment we are thriving and exactly where we never knew we needed to be. In fact it’s so amazing I’ve had trouble putting it all in words. It’s been nothing short of a miracle. It was a quick, unexpected move. Just 45 days from job offer, to sell house,…

Exciting Adventure

Another September 1st marks another new beginning, another birthday, another year to plan, pray, and dream. But the most amazing part is that I’m exactly where I did not pray to be. That’s the exciting part of surrendering everything { I Mean Everything } to The One who knows what you need better than you…

Fridays

Fridays are my catch up day. Check off everything I didn’t finish during the week. I try to finish everything so nothing interferes with family time during the weekend. As I reheat my coffee for the third time I realize my to do list this week was longer than my allotment of time. No surprises…

Personal Development and Prayer

If you’ve followed me long you know I’m also seeking to refine myself, growing, learning, and sharing. It’s a journey I think many of us seek. But what’s I’ve learned is that it must be intentional! The seasons where I’m studying the word, reading inspiring books, and praying I know that I can do all…

How about you?

What if you had something that could change lives? Would you share it? Would you use it for yourself? When you find an amazing sale do you share it or keep it to yourself? As Christians we are called to Love and share like Jesus. When Jesus shared The Way and healed people many did…

Waiting with Anticipation

The First day of Advent is a journey of waiting expectantly for Jesus’ birth and reflecting over the past year with hopes for the future. In hopes of truly enjoying the advent season I seek to have all of the decorating, shopping, busyness done by December first or at least by December third. I’ve carefully…

L❤️VE is the answer 

When God has a message He sends it in love. With gentle reminders. Today we started our morning on the couch with coffee watching Andy Stanley in the fourth installment of  What Happy Couples Know  on Northpoint Live. We love watching Northpoint live every Sunday before worshipping locally. The service starts of with praise and worship…

Learning to be Mary in a Martha World

I started this blog post a while ago. Got busy, moved on, then today I picked back up after a gentle reminder that God is perfectly in control and I am not.    I’m so guilty of rushing around and worrying about everything. (I just want everything to be nice and everyone to be happy)….
