My sweet sister in Christ, if we can’t be vulnerable with our Creator, then we never have the chance for redemption. And His story of redemption is better than any best selling book. Postpartum depression was not my fault, and that was a lie God helped me wrestle through. But my reaction to it, my heart’s stance was something I had to own. Allowing my life to be run by the overwhelming emotion of being upset with God for making me this way, was a sin I had to confess.
Grace took over and His lavishing love saved me. In the final weeks of my pregnancy, God placed these verses on my heart, unaware that they would become my heart song during this journey.
Shredded cheese was flying all over my kitchen. My girls were throwing it around like confetti, and the dogs were receiving it like manna from heaven. Squeals of pure delight were echoing loudly off the walls. They had managed to turn pizza making night into a full blown party. As I took the scene in, I realized the only one not enjoying this unplanned festivity was me, mommy the party pooper.
Eyes fixated to the skies, fingers lifted pointing in unison, voices raised echoing with genuine delight. My daughters’ had discovered the moon was visible in the daylight sky. Reflected in their eyes was a simple, yet profound sense of wonder. The moon, something we often overlook. Something we take for granted that disappears and reappears daily. It’s commonplace to us, but to our children, it is new, awe-filled, and something they want to know more about.
Today we ran (okay some of us ran some waddled🤰) for a reason! 🏃♀️

My heart settled for so much less than what God desired for me. It was chasing outward pleasures in place of internal rewards. So I’ve been quiet in this space, missing sharing my words with those who read them, but learning to be content with the joy that is found in doing the more difficult tasks of real soul changing heart work.
I’ll forever chose this simple life and the people I get to do it with ❤️
Our community is shaken, but will not be broken. ❤️
With tears streaming down my face, I held my girls close and we prayed for safety, for our first responders, for those hurting and for God’s love to be near. 🙏🏼
I hate that we had to talk about “bad guys” and why people do bad things. But I know we have a hope greater than the scary realities of this world, and tonight we cling to that. We cling to the community we love. 🕯 “That light shines in the darkness, and yet the darkness did not overcome it.”
