Dancing Through the Downpours of Life
Blog Post // March 13, 2018
Jesus carries our burdens … if we let Him. He repairs the chipped and chiseled parts of our hearts … IF we let Him!
Every storm, no matter what form, is life-changing. Every storm, no matter what form can help us develop as a person. EVERY storm, no matter what form can teach us something positive.
We will face storms of many kinds, but sometimes we have to take time to dance in the rain. It is the storms of life that help strengthen our faith in Christ. Sometimes, it is the storms of life that help us draw closer to the things that mean the most to us. It is the storms that help us realize what is truly important.
My Epic Adventure: Motherhood
Blog Post // February 7, 2018
I used to dream of being a famous songwriter and a New York Times Bestselling Author. Since my little Liam came into the world, my heart and dreams have changed in so many ways. I no longer dream of fame and fortune, I long to see my son reach his God-given potential. Follow his dreams. To learn to care about other people. To hear “I love you” from his parents every day. For him to know what a gift from God he was and is. Charlotte Pearson said, “Motherhood: The most exhausting, emotional, rewarding and life-enhancing journey a woman can take.”
While I do have a number of personal and career goals for my own future, I am excited to continue on the epic adventure of motherhood. My son’s smile and laughter bring joy to our every day. Even when the days are valleys instead of mountains. I came across a Motherhood Bible Study recently that asked the question, “Does mothering matter?”
Sometimes when we are constantly changing diapers, washing adorable baby clothes, picking up mountains of toys, washing sippy cups with animal crackers stuffed in the straw, and doing other tasks that seem mundane to the world – we need to be reminded that mothering DOES matter.
