Our Fertility Update

Whew.. yet another post that I keep putting off. It’s been 13 months since I last shared about our journey to becoming parents. It’s interesting how infrequent I have shared considering that this blog originally started to document our journey. Please don’t think that the lack of sharing about our journey over the years is due to a diminished desire to become parents, because I can assure you that is not …. Continue Reading

Divine Appointment

A divine appointment is a meeting with another person that has been specifically ordered by God. I am sure over the years I have had many of these, but two stand out the most to me. The first, is meeting my airport angel in 2013. And, the second? It happened at the conference I attended two weeks ago. At the end of the first day, altar prayer was offered to those ….

Isaiah 43:1 Do Not Fear #135

I’ll be honest, I usually skip over Isaiah 43:1 and go straight to verse Isaiah 43:2, which has helped me so much in this season of waiting. But, Isaiah 43:1 is so powerful. It says, “Now, this is what the LORD says, the one who created you, O Jacob, and formed you, O Israel: “Don’t be afraid, for I will protect you. I call you by name, you are mine.” This ….

Pink Impact Women’s Conference

This past weekend I attended my first Pink Impact Conference, which was hosted by Gateway church. It was somewhat of a last minute decision (decided the week before) and I am so glad I went. I got to have sweet one-on-one time with my friend Melanie, well minus the fact that there were 9,000 other women there. Of course, Jesus totally showed up and I left so encouraged and filled with ….

Doorways, Hallways, and Gateways

This post has been in my draft folder since last October and when I heard Charlotte Gambill speak at a conference this past weekend, I was reminded to listen to the sermon (for the 10th or 11th time) again and hit submit on this post. Anyone else agree that their life is definitely not how they thought it would be? I can’t tell you how often I have asked the …. Continue Reading

Colossians 3:2 – Things Above #134

I am sharing a verse that I mentioned last week in my Unashamed post. Speaking of that post, I went to a conference this past weekend and Christine Caine spoke about her recent book Unashamed and another speaker also talked about shame. Clearly the Lord is trying to bring healing and freedom to the area of shame as it’s no accident the timing of so many sharing on the same topic. I …. Continue Reading


Shame. Why has shame become the norm for so many people? It seems like an emotion and feeling that so many deal with. While my first thought about this word reminds me of all the chatter I have heard from those going through infertility, I know that shame crosses every generation and spectrum of people, no matter what situation they might be facing. So what exactly is shame? Well first, shame …. Continue Reading

Brain Tumor Awareness Month + Head for the Cure

I never thought I would need to share and bring awareness to so many different causes. A few weeks ago I shared that it was National Infertility Awareness Week and today I am sharing about another topic near and dear to me, Brain Tumor Awareness Month. So why do I care? Why is important for me to ‘go grey’ this month? I do this to honor my nephew, who we lost …. Continue Reading

Psalm 23:4 – God is Near #133

You might or might not be familiar with Psalm 23. Whether it’s your first time to read it or it’s one you have memorized, there is so much good content in it. Today I am sharing verse 4 from the Passion Translation which says “Lord, even when your path takes me through the valley of deepest darkness, fear will never conquer me, for you already have! You remain close to me …. Continue Reading
