Don't Believe the Lie
JULY 2, 2018
I recently read a copy of Enough by Sharon Jaynes. This book is an updated version of Lies Women Believe. As you would imagine there were a lot of lies uncovered in the book. Things that women tell themselves everyday: I’m worthless. I’m stupid. I’m ugly. As women, we sometimes have a negative record playing in our minds all day long, it’s a wonder we can get anything done!
Can you relate? Do you find yourself saying things like “I’m stupid”, “I’m a bad mother” or “I’ll never get anything right”? Interestingly enough if we to hear someone else saying these things to themselves we would be quick to jump in and tell them to stop. Why is that do you think? Read more...
Book Review: In His Image
JULY 5, 2018
Sometimes we ask What is God’s will for my life? when we should really be asking Who should I be? The Bible has an answer: Be like the very image of God.
By exploring ten characteristics of who God is—holy, loving, just, good, merciful, gracious, faithful, patient, truthful, and wise—this book helps us understand who God intends for us to be. Through Christ, the perfect reflection of the image of God, we will discover how God’s own attributes impact how we live, leading to freedom and purpose as we follow his will and are conformed to his image.
Have you ever wanted to know what was God’s will for your life? Of course you have. Jen Wilkin suggests that a better question to ask would be: “Who Should I Be?” This question is answered within the very first chapter of the Bible – we should be the image of God. Read more...

Summer is officially here. We say hello to longer days and hot, mosquito filled nights. We also say hello to long days with children in the house. After spending months cooped up in the classroom (or hours tied to a curriculum if they’re home-schooled) they crave freedom.
They dream of long days and nights spent doing nothing but laying in bed and using a screen. Read more...
8 Cool Skillshare Classes to Take With Your Child
JULY 19, 2018
Summer. The long, beautiful, sunny days. The bedtime that has miraculously been erased from your child’s mind. The endless hours that your child needs you to entertain him…
Okay, so I admit it: I’m new to this whole work from home thing. I still don’t feel as though I’m working from home and my family is still trying to get used to the idea that I’m not really home (at least that’s what keep telling them).
The son who ignores me quite contentedly when he’s engrossed in a screen watching mindless videos on YouTube, becomes quite clingy and demanding when I tell him to watch somethings that doesn’t cause his brain to leak through his ears Read more...

For the longest while this verse has been playing in my head. It pops up at unusual moments like when I’m scrolling through my feed on social media or when I’m idly thinking of what to do. Taken at face value, it’s a powerful message but I’m not really a face value kinda girl.
After weeks of ignoring the urge to dig in, I finally grabbed my Bible, concordance and notebook (oh and my cellphone cause it’s so much easier checking the online dictionary than a real one smile). Read more...
