Please don’t make me, part 1…

Please don’t make me, part 1…

Growing up, it never entered my mind that I might be a pastor’s wife. I don’t even remember a single pastor’s wife from the churches I attended while growing up. Some days I think my life is very normal and then other days I come to my senses.  One way that I jump the normal […]

The Best Regift Ever…

The Best Regift Ever…

Online shopping works pretty well for me. This time of year, I have boxes being dropped at our front door a few times a week. I usually snatch them up and move them to my closet so no one else in the family has time to discern where the box is from and what is inside. Today […]

Before Panic Set In….

All day long I kept thinking that something was wrong. Actually, at different points over the past few weeks I suspected a problem with our pool. When we moved into our new house this spring, we were blessed with a beautiful pool. On this particular day, it was not feeling like a blessing. I woke […]

Just Like God

Just Like God

Can we just say out loud, “Motherhood is hard.” Very hard. I use to think it was hard because I had two small children close together in age. I can’t imagine the amount of energy to feed more kids, wipe more noses, and correct more mouths. My hats are off to those who do! I […]

Give It All You’ve Got…

Give It All You’ve  Got…

I recently spent the morning at one of our local Lifeway outlets.  It is usually one of my stops twice a year as I try to discern what study is best for our upcoming semester of Bible study. The staff is usually curious when I stack up workbooks and seem to have nowhere to go […]

Choosing Thankfulness Over Hopelessness, part 2

Here is part 2 of Sarah Vicker’s guest blog. We can all learn from Sarah on how to be thankful… Soon after this, a woman called my home, and spoke with my mom. The woman said, “You don’t know me, but my name is Megan, and I am a brain injury Occupational Therapist. I’ve heard […]

Choosing Thankfulness Over Hopelessness, part 1

One of the privileges I have of being in ministry with my husband is that I get to know some amazing people. Today will be part one of a two-part blog. I have asked Sarah Vickers to be my guest blogger as we celebrate Thanksgiving. Sarah understands thankfulness in a way that we can all […]

In the Highs and Lows

In the Highs and Lows

At the end of every semester of Bible study, the women of Highpoint gather to enjoy brunch and share corporately what God has been doing in each of our small groups. It is often a time of encouragement, a reminder of great Biblical truths we have learned over the study, and a chance to celebrate […]

Only a Woman….

Only a Woman….

After recently being sick, I have made two observations that should help us on those days we are feeling like we always fall short: 1.     Women Have Super Sonic Ears The stomach bug is going around Memphis. I hope that you stay clear, if it has not gotten you already. Thursday night I got in […]

Help Wanted for today :(

Help Wanted for today :(

Writing a blog may be dangerous. Some days I think that I am probably repeating wisdom on the same few struggles because I personally have not had complete victory over them yet. I wonder what themes I would find if I went back and read my previous months posts in succession. Too bad I don’t […]
