I Need The TRUTH!

I remember watching a Veggie Tales video about Gideon when my kids were younger and thinking how much faith it would take for George Mueller to trust God to provide everything.  I mean, everything!  At that time I was still living under a lot of ick (read condemnation!) and thought I was a lesser Christian because I could never live with that kind of faith!  A few days ago I was thinking of that story again.  Perhaps it was because we were living that kind of faith out on a VERY small scale…and God has been very faithful, but that’s not … Continue reading 

Set the Tone

I recently went on a family trip to Texas with my entire side of the family.  After months of feeling like my family had been working REALLY hard at life, I was SO ready for a relaxing vacation.  Even before we left for vacation I felt God telling me that I would need to set the tone for the week.

This is a habit I created a couple years after getting married.  I spent the first 6-12 months of our marriage sleeping ALL … Continue reading 

(Girl)Friends

Some of Mr. L’s best friends at school are girls.  Do you ladies remember 2nd and 3rd grade?  I specifically remember ditching my best friend since Kindergarten to be friends with the popular girls when I was in 3rd grade.  That was a waste of a perfectly good, healthy friendship.  Young girls are full of drama.  One day we’re friends and the next you can’t even talk to each other anymore.  It’s a roller coaster of emotions. I honestly didn’t see this whole drama thing coming our way.  Yes, I’m a bit naive.  You see, Mr. L has a lot … Continue reading
