18 Ways to Jump Start Your Quiet Time in 2018

Recently I was talking with a friend about spiritual growth. Out of everything I’ve done in my journey in drawing closer to God, the one thing that has brought me closer to Christ than anything else was spending daily time in God’s Word. Yet as mom it’s not easy to do! The wonderful thing is there is no right way to do it. I’ve tried different methods during different seasons. The point of all of it is spending time reading {Read More}

Peace in Every Way | 2 Thessalonians 3:16

The Rumor is True (and a special FREE book for you!)

Have you heard the rumor? I have to admit it’s true. I am not a superwoman. Yes, that’s right. I’ll admit it here.
