Hope For Women … you’re capable of wonderful things | Angelia White

Life is not always easy—that’s a truth I’ve come to know far too well. As a young girl and into adulthood, I haven’t always had ideal situations occur. I’ve faced instances of abandonment and sexual abuse, leading to brokenness, depression and having to start from scratch. I felt completely alone during my darkest points, and I wasn’t sure where to turn. I never had sisters growing up, but I certainly wished for them. Thankfully, the Lord provided me with the {Read More}

4 Ways to be Overwhelmed by God, In the Midst of An Overwhelming World | Hayley DiMarco

For the woman overwhelmed, rest is a fantasy that we imagine would be amazing, but never a possibility. Before I began to seek God for my overwhelmed life, I didn’t even believe in rest. Maybe that’s because I didn’t seem to have enough time for it, but frankly I wouldn’t even have known what to do if I had. It has happened before. There have been times when I have found myself with no deadlines, no pressing responsibilities, and a {Read More}

The Great Cover Up | Chrystal Evans Hurst

Selfies. Most of us have taken them. Some of us have taken them seriously. If you’ve ever posted a selfie on social media, you can appreciate the work it takes to get a good one. The lighting has to be right. The angle has to be right. And lord knows, the filter has to be right, too. Selfies are serious business. I’m embarrassed to say there have been times it took thirty snaps to get the one photo I felt was {Read More}

Creating the Day You Want to Wake Up To!

I don’t know about you, but there’s a few things I don’t want to wake up to. A dirty kitchen is one. Piles of laundry is another. Then there is the day packed to the rim with things I have to do. Not fun things. Days like that are never fun. It’s even harder when I’m dragging my kids along with me. I’ve had many days like this. I wake up with all the things I have to do in {Read More}

How to Know the Truth | Guest Post {+ Giveaway}

Truth. Some say it’s all relative, but let’s face it, those people are kind of missing the entire definition of “truth.” When something is true it inherently means that everything else that contradicts it is not true. Truth is absolute, correct, accurate. It does not bend to feelings or changes in culture, it simply is. Truth is also generally not popular opinion. Today’s culture elevates acceptance, and moreover, the actual condoning of sin in the name of “love,” over the {Read More}

Hope for the Mom Who Feels Unremarkable {+ a giveaway!}

I am the mother of eight children, something that feels very normal and unimpressive to me, but usually elicits a response of shock and awe in people I meet. I feel largely unremarkable. You, too? In all these years of mothering, there have been joyful, wonderful, absolutely fun days, and there have been hopeless, depressing, despairing, and desperate days when I wanted to stay crouched beneath the covers and not have to face all of those little and not-so-little people {Read More}

Change Your Future By Doing This One Thing | Guest Post

  If I could somehow wind the clock back thirty years or so, self-control is one area where I wish I could have a do-over. There are areas of my character and my walk with God today that would be more fruitful and blessed, battles I might not have to fight so vigorously, if I had been more intentional about developing a sophron (self-controlled) mind as a younger woman. How I would love to be an older woman in your {Read More}

The 3 Marks of a Filling Love | Guest Post {+ Giveaway}

We all struggle with identity—who we are, why we are, and what we have to offer the world. About the time we find a scrap of worth or significance, something happens to make us fully aware of how much we lack. A harsh word. A broken relationship. A blunder or failure. Then, in spite of our best efforts at positivity or affirmation, we can’t escape the insecurity and aloneness we experience as a result. When it comes to this epidemic {Read More}

5 Things to Do When the Kids Are Driving You Crazy

Most days I have at least one moment of wondering what God was thinking when He gave me these amazing kids.  I trust Him, I do, but I sure do feel stretched through this mom gig.  It’s wonderful and fulfilling one moment and defeating the next. The ups and downs and all arounds can make me feel like I am losing my mind.  I mean HOW can one person lose their shoes three times a day?!  And WHY do we {Read More}

5 Ways to Help a Mom Who is Suddenly Single

I was a single mom when I first had my son at 17-years-old, and I mentor teenage mothers in a weekly support group, most of which are single. And every month my husband travels out of town for 7-10 days (sometimes more!), making me single for a time. Yet I am thankful I am married to an amazing man who is a wonderful companion and huge support. When he is away I realize how hard it is for single moms {Read More}
