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.

A Moment of Christmas:

Daily Devotions for Time-strapped 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.

The Choice We Need to Make This Week

I've been doing quite a bit of speaking this season, to church groups and moms groups and groups of parents. As I've prepared the talks for each gathering, I've realized that I am a perfectionist. You could say I’m a perfectionist in recovery, but yeah, I totally tend...
