Recently my mom gave me a plaque that had on it the Beatitudes of a Christian Marriage. As I read through them, I realized just how true they are!! There are only four of them, & I’d like to take some time to go through each one.I hope you will join me as I work [...]
So, in April Jason and I bought our first house! Very exciting stuff… we absolutely LOVE this place!
We are still working to unpack some boxes, mostly in our spare bedroom. The other night Jason and I were trying to get organized, unpacking books and placing them on the bookshelves in the room. We were being [...]
I’m sitting here in my new home while my precious baby boy is napping, surrounded by piles of folded laundry, unsorted mail, and half unpacked boxes… writing a blog post. Does this seem like I’ve got my priorities wrong? On the contrary, my friend! I’m making time for ME!

WOW, where did the summer go? I thought I’d have so much time for blogging, but… WOW! I completely missed August!
This has been a busier summer than expected, working 3 part-time jobs, trying to stay on top of menu-planning, house cleaning, baby preparation, youth ministry, friends leaving for college, and family visiting on vacation. Oh [...]

Tomorrow is my 3 year wedding anniversary. Wow… How fast time has flown by, yet…. it seems like we’ve been [...]
Hmm, as I began to write the title for this post, I thought, “Wow, that’s got a double meaning! I’m announcing the winner of the book “Love & Respect“… but I’m also going to tell everyone who the winner is if they PRACTICE love & respect in their marriage!!”
So first…. let’s talk about the book [...]
This weekend, I was given the opportunity to share with a group of ladies at a “20-Something” retreat. I chose to talk to them about an area in marriage that is often lacking: RESPECT!
