Nothing Like Old Friends

Nothing Like Old Friends

It’s been a lot of fun to make friends in our new town, but there is nothing like the comfort of old friends (and by old, I mean long-time, we are nowhere near old ;). This past weekend, our dear friends the Rufles came to visit! They are the first friends to visit us from our old home, and we are so grateful they came! Even though we had quite a cold, rainy Saturday- we didn’t let that get us…

How a Nun Came to Our Rescue

How a Nun Came to Our Rescue

One of the many joys of marriage is gaining a whole set of new family members! My husband, Chuck, is one of seven children so there are lots of special relatives in our life. Besides his siblings and parents, Chuck also came with a really wonderful Aunt. When Chuck and I were dating I began calling her Aunt Sharon because it was the most natural thing in the world. Aunt Sharon has served for the last FIFTY years as a…

Secret Reveal!

Guys, I am crazy about essential oils! I have been a closet oil user for quite some time because I don’t like the oil-haters out there. Does anyone else hate to be hated?!

How God is Using a Hardware Store to Provide

How God is Using a Hardware Store to Provide

Many of you are aware, my husband lost his job back in June. Because of that, we will lose our medical benefits at the end of December. We are thankful to have kept our benefits up until this point. God’s faithfulness to provide for our every need always astounds me. Today I am thankful God provided my husband with a part-time job at Lowes. Isn’t he handsome? He has been working there for 2 weeks now. By the end of January,…

November 1

Halloween is finally behind us and we can officially move on to The Holidays! It’s hard to believe they’re already here! I had to dash through the grocery store today and got giddy when I saw Halloween items 50% off while Christmas decorations, cookies, candies, ice cream, and creamers were merrily on display. My heart skipped a beat with anticipation. You better believe I start celebrating Christmas before Thanksgiving! We’ve already had a dinner with Christmas music playing on Pandora in the…

8 Things Not to Say to a Miscarrying Woman

8 Things Not to Say to a Miscarrying Woman

Pregnancy. The word is packed with punch. It carries a load, just like it’s own definition. For some the word signifies something quite unplanned. Uncalculated. For others, it brings the deepest form of indescribable joy. Something long-awaited. Something intangible, yet more real than anything has ever been. Yet still others ache at hearing the word, as it has only ever been used to describe another woman other than herself. On Friday I had a gut-wrenching conversation with a woman who…

Thriving in Your First 35 Days After Moving!

Thriving in Your First 35 Days After Moving!

We’ve officially been living in our new State for 5 weeks now. In some ways it feels like a lot longer. In just 35 days, the Spirit has moved in such a way we feel like different people than when we arrived. My feet hit the ground of the farm we are living on that first day, and tears pooled in my eyes. Even though it was dreary outside, my soul was bright was hope. Bursting with anticipation. It was as…

Podcasting Dream Come True!

We have arrived! The first thing I did when we got to the farm was head out back to take this picture. My heart was light. I felt free. Tears filled my eyes as JOY from Father God exuded my being. All we have been through this summer- an unexplainable amount of pain- and yet our good, good Father is so mighty He can fill a broken heart with joy in a hot second. Don’t you just want to squeeze Him in a big hug…
