For the friend with a broken heart

One huge part of my story and walk in faith over the last 3 years has included huge heartache. If you are like me, its really easy to assume that life should look the way you’ve planned. You have dreams, and do all the “right things” to live a happy, fulfilled life. As one who grew up following the rules, carrying little baggage and having a strong family—I really lived in a sweet bubble. I went to college, found friends, a ministry, and … Continue Reading »


His Love is BIG

Thanks to Liz and Angie for letting me share my thoughts as a guest blogger! I live down the street from Liz and have enjoyed getting to know both her and Angie over the last year or so. I’m a fellow SAHM and blog somewhat infrequently at http://baaremans.blogspot.com. So, onto the post! As I watched the Opening Ceremonies of the Olympics a few weeks ago, I was mesmerized by how many countries there are in the world. Sure, there were the big names … Continue Reading »


What My Mom Doesn’t Know

One thing my husband and I talk about frequently when we are trying to “fix the world’s problems” is how really, the most life-changing, meaningful or successful way to “change” this world is by— investing in people. We sometimes go round and round about how the government is flawed, what horrible things we see on the news, or what “so-and-so” should be doing that they aren’t doing. All these conversations draw us back though. Back to people. The real change is personal in someone’s life. … Continue Reading »

We waited for you for so long. Every night while I hold you before … Continue Reading »


This Love

With Valentine’s Day just around the corner I can’t help but think back to my first Valentine’s Day with my husband 13 years ago…we were juniors in high school and had only been dating a few months. I still remember him hiding the “newest” Maroon 5 CD in my locker (Songs About Jane). Oh how life was so simple back then. When our biggest worry as a couple was if we would be on time in the parking lot so we could walk into … Continue Reading »


Post Holiday Blues

So the holidays are over and it’s a new year! I don’t know about you, but I always seem to go into a little post holiday slump. I’m not sure if it’s the let down of all the excitement and activities or family heading back home, but I’m telling you it’s ROUGH. We had a sick little babe all through Christmas and New Years. She’s been sick before, but this was the first big sickness we’ve had. I felt like I was taking … Continue Reading »


What a picture doesn’t say

  I love this picture above. This is my husband and I on vacation this fall. We had a blast! Overall, our week away from work, kids, and daily responsibilities was such a sweet and much needed time. As much as I love this picture, it is quite deceiving. It looks romantic, dreamy, or even picturesque. Maybe it looks like we are madly in love and dressed up in formal wear every time we kiss. You know as well as I do that … Continue Reading »
