“Mommy, I don’t want to take a nap. I don’t want to eat lunch. I want chocolate milk (said in a whining voice). I want to go inside because it’s too hot.” These are just a few examples of the daily grumbles I hear from my two girls. In the midst of the complaining, you […]

The “Inconvenience” of Motherhood

When I was 27 years old my doctor told me that I would probably never have children.  At that time I was single, and I wondered if I would ever be married.  It was a difficult time in my life, but I knew God had a plan for me.  Three years later I met and […]

Potty Training…A Spiritual Discipline?

I am currently in full potty training mode. For the past three weeks, my schedule has revolved around a timer, asking Makaylan if she needs to go potty, and then spending what seems like hours in the bathroom. We have read books, sung songs, and even watched a few Frozen songs on YouTube all in […]

The moment you find out you are pregnant the dreams begin. You love to shop, so you automatically assume your daughter will love to shop. You were a star athlete, so you envision your daughter as the next collegiate basketball superstar. Your husband is a scholar, so you imagine your son will be a doctor, […]

When You’ve Gone Too Far…Again

By on February 18, 2014 in Dating with 0 Comments

As I sat across from her, I could see the sadness in her eyes. And then the confession: “Amanda, my boyfriend and I went ‘too far’… again!!” My first reaction was to blame the guy for putting pressure on her, but then the truth came out….She was the one who started the physical relationship, and […]

Where Did Baby Jesus Go?

By on January 23, 2014 in Faith with 0 Comments

A few days after Christmas, I, like many women, took down my Christmas decorations. The next day my daughter ran into my room and asked, “Mommy, where is my baby Jesus?” (The Little Tikes ® nativity set.) I immediately replied, “Baby Jesus is in the garage. We will get him out next year.” Suddenly, the […]

Changing Your Family Legacy

“Daddy, how did our immediate family become different from many in our extended family?” Several years ago, this was the question I asked my father. His answer was surprising. You shall love the LORD your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. And these words that I command […]

Is Male Headship a Result of the Fall?

By on August 27, 2013 in Biblical Womanhood, Gender, Marriage with 0 Comments

One of my favorite things about being married to a college pastor is building relationships with the girls in our group. Inevitably, there are two young people who fall in love, consider marriage, and decide they need marriage/relationship counsel from Chris and me. There is no greater joy than to see two young people who […]
