A Moment of Christmas:

25 December Devotions for Moms

It’s my prayer that we moms will make room for the peace and fullness of joy this season is meant to exude. I want my children to see me making room for Him in my inn, even amidst the to-do list.

Whether it’s at the beginning of the day (before kids and life demand) or at the end of a long day before finally collapsing into bed – whenever you take a moment for yourself, I pray you allow the peace of the season to wash over you.

Pumpkin Spice For Your Soul:

25 Devotions for Autumn

Autumn is the perfect time to take back the reins of our self-care intentions. To pause and actually care for ourselves. Let’s enjoy our lattes, oh yes, but let’s also spend time focusing on that which truly fills our hearts and cares for our souls.

It is my prayer that the pause found on these pages would provide you a moment of peace. A break in the hustle and bustle. A chance to drink deep and savor this fleeting and favored season.

What I’ve Gained From Losing 53 lbs

Over the past eighteen months, I’ve lost 53 lbs. I’ve lost an entire Josie off my body, if you will. Yep, she's five and weighs 53 lbs. Pretty astonishing to think of in those terms. But I’ve gained so much more than the extra weight I’ve lost. Last week, my little...

Their Perspective From the Floor

Their Perspective From the Floor

My 3yo climbed into my lap at the bottom of the stairs. I’m thick in the snuggling years and I’m here for it. She needed some loves and while getting them, her big sister said, “Oh you guys are so cute! You should take a selfie. Where is your phone? I will take it.”...

On That Which Goes Unspoken

On That Which Goes Unspoken

Usually on Mother's Day weekend, I re-post a piece I wrote several years ago, in which I celebrate 'the other mothers'. The ones who understand loss, longing, and deepest pain. These are the mothers who are heavy on my heart as this complicated holiday rolls around,...

Introducing… my new book.

I wrote another book. It's been as much a surprise to me as it may be to you, and it's done. In my hands. ANOTHER BOOK. It's my favorite project yet. I was so excited when we picked it up today that I dragged my whole family to our favorite little lake to take...
