Hi, friends! Please join us THIS Saturday at the Barnes & Noble (at Lakeline Crossing) for the Building Circles of Grace book release party! I am a hot mess of a mama, so I know what it is to feel so overwhelmed by life and struggle not to be overtaken by the frantic pace of [...]

Yesterday was a big day. Building Circles of Grace, the second Bible study in the Girls of Grace Bible study series celebrated her book birthday, and it was wonderful!  Better than wonderful actually. Friends cheered and shared. New friends reached out and connected. God's presence was felt. Yet, at the end of the day, I [...]

Hello, my friends.  It's been a while since I've had the energy and time to really sit and write.  After the Girls of Grace Ministries' mom/tween daughter retreat--which was AMAZING--I jumped head first into preparing for our family trip to Israel.  Of course, April and May are notoriously slow months---said no mom with school-age children [...]

Wow, friends...where to begin?It's nice to be back with you.  I took a brief hiatus from blogging to prepare for the first T.E.A.M. Grace mom/tween daughter weekend retreat.  To say that the weekend far surpassed our Girls of Grace Ministries leadership team's wildest dreams would be a gross understatement.  It was So.Much.Fun.  More than 75 [...]

Have you ever gotten out of bed and known within the first five minutes that it is going to be one of those days?  From the time you opened your eyes, it was like the enemy said, "I pick her."There is a reason for sayings like, "It was the straw that broke the camel's back." [...]

God’s Provision

When I was seven months pregnant with my oldest daughter, my PC (Prince Charming) was laid off from work.  What should have been a stressful situation actually became a blessing in disguise when our baby girl was delivered by emergency c-sestion four weeks early.  PC went back to work after she was born, and life [...]

Water in the Face

At the beginning of each week, I look through my schedule and process where I need to be for the next seven days and what I want to accomplish.  This typically happens on Sunday shortly after a quick reprieve from the previous week while I'm still on that high from the message I heard at [...]

Snow Day – Take TWO!

Snow Day.  That's a phrase we don't hear very often in this part of Texas, and we've heard it twice in less than a week.  Yes, my "to do" list is so long that I could wrap it around myself like a mummy.  You know what, though?  Today, who cares?  Clearly from the photo below, [...]

Happy Friday, friends!  I hope you are staying warm and safe.  It's down right chilly all across Texas.  Around these parts, we don't usually get snow days.  We enjoy ice days!  :lol:  Trust me.  We hardly know what to with rainy weather.  You definitely do not want us on the roadways with ice.  School is [...]
