Yesterday morning I went down to the kitchen to make a smoothie/protein shake. This is normally a five-minute process. But yesterday, it ended up taking me a full hour, and I think it finally hit me full force that I am now a mother of four kids, age four and under. The scene went something like this:8:45 a.m. – Took the blender out of the dishwasher and... READ MORE

This was certainly not your typical girl’s conference! It was an intense, inspiring call to enter the battle for Truth. It was a challenge to die to self, lay everything on the altar before God, and enter the fray armed and ready to build the kingdom of God. From the very first session, there was spiritual thunder.

A hurtful situation in my life has brought this issue to the surface in the last few days. I’ve become all the more aware that as a woman, it’s all too easy to be quick-tempered; to be ruled by my feelings and emotions rather than the Spirit of... READ MORE

I’m now almost six months pregnant. I have the kind of body that doesn’t “spread out” the weight of a pregnancy. Rather, everything sticks out right in front. I look (and feel) like I have a basketball under my shirt. Some women feel extra feminine and beautiful when they are pregnant. I have to say, I’m not one of them. Though I’m overjoyed about the...
