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. 

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.

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.

on Girl with Blog’s top 10 posts from 2013

I've never done this before! But last night I thought it'd be fun {and it was!} to peek at my stats and see what YOU loved reading on Girl with Blog during 2013. I am humbled every day when you share your stories, stop by my fence, send an email or tweet, and choose...

on our Christmas card for you!

Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year, from the Girl with Blog family!! I'll be back sometime this week to tell you about our Christmas (which hasn't actually happened yet, because all three of us got the stomach flu. Seriously.) We're on the mend, and looking...

on the most wonderful & difficult time of the year

Last week I cried at our pastors sermon about 'the most wonderful & difficult time of the year'. She spoke to the people who struggle through it, whether from unemployment, infertility, depression, or a nameless battle. She spoke of John the Baptist, who dared...

on Advent calendars – a guest post by…

... Husby! =) He wrote this for our monthly feature on the Vibrant Faith @ Home blog, and I loved it. So I'm sharing a bit of it with you here. His words were a balm for me, as this month I've wanted nothing more than to cancel life and steep in Advent but it's like...

on keeping the calm in Christmas

After receiving so many responses to this post, I thought perhaps we could all use a few ideas on how to actually and practically seek & find Him amidst the busy. Below are a few things I feel help me keep the calm throughout the crazy. ps - I love you guys....

on finding the calm in Christmas

Two weeks before Christmas, and an empty, undecorated tree stands lonely in the corner. A small pile of gifts are unwrapped, tucked away in a cupboard from peeking eyes. The kitchen is somewhere beneath itself, as mice decided to move in for a night and now the...

on The Boy at 23 months

I haven't done a monthly update in, well, months, so I thought I'd pop in with his 23 month update. Since the next one will not be in months but in years. WHAT?! The Boy is growing and learning and talking and running. Fast. And talking a lot. Just today, here are the...

on seeing myself {and the photos that got me there}

I was able to slide into a last minute headshot slot last month at the Allume conference. I had just cut bangs, and my last headshot was over a year old, so in general I thought it would be worth a $20 update. Today the photos were made available for download, and I...

on Redemptive Sloppy Joes {a Gooseberry Patch recipe}

The seasons, they are a-changin' round these parts. Temperatures have been in the 30's and 40's, the sun is setting around 5:00, and tomorrow is supposed to bring real snow! So it's a cozy food kind of week, starting out with these BBQ/sloppy joe sandwiches. And also,...

on choosing joy {a simply honest #girlwithbaby update}

So. Like a month ago, I was all, 'The Boy's going to be a big brother!! K bye.' And then crickets from me about it. I could tell you it's been busy, which is true. I could tell you how I got the flu and was in bed for a week, and how I still have a cough and stuffy...
