When Jeremy and I first got married, he was laid off for about a week after not being paid for almost two months by his employer. We were engaged, he had paid for my engagement ring with a credit card and took out a $10,000 loan to cover any costs that may come up at … Continue reading Thanks

The last few weeks, the Lord has been highlighting to me individuals who are weighed down. In particular, I have watched as other mothers are completely frazzled and overwhelmed. I have been praying for these moms in my life because no one wants to live each day feeling like they are not enough. I am … Continue reading Identity & Rest
