I’ve talked before about prayer, and admittedly it’s something I’m always practicing. Recently however, I’ve realized that part of the reason it can seem so ineffective, or so dull, is because I lack the ability to listen.
I am now in my third trimester and 31 weeks of pregnancy and the feeling is ah-mazing! I am over 2/3rds there and am on a pregnancy high of “I can do it, I can do it.” It’s really wonderful to see the finish line finally in sight.
It’s crazy how fast time can fly. Last time I sat down to write a blog post, we were in the beginning stages of our Tiny House build. I don’t even know if we had done anything further than buy the trailer and burn a bunch of unusable wood. Now, an unbelievable four (nearly five!) months […]
My soul is longing for our Tiny House. I know, that sounds pretty drastic. But I can’t think of any other way to simply state what I am so strongly feeling.
Just a little peek at what my days look like when Jeff’s not home. I find it ironic the picture that showed my favorite part of day didn’t come out the way I would have hoped. Jeffrey’s homecoming marks the *real* start of my day- all the hours before are simply preparation. I prepare my heart, […]
In August, Jeff and I were faithfully reading “My Upmost for His Highest” every night. (If you haven’t heard of it, I highly encourage you to buy a copy and read it. Yes. Buy it.) Since life has gotten significantly busier, we’ve been falling asleep on the couch and are 100% less likely to read […]

One of the hardest things I struggle with is comparison. I have an idea, I start it, and then I quit because I see people who have the same ideas or talents, only they are better then mine (and sometimes honestly just different). And that’s the struggle for me: not to be just like them… but […]
I’m becoming quite used to solitude. As a newly-wed in a new state with one car to serve the two of us and a husband who is working about 50 hours a week… life can be overwhelmingly, disappointingly quiet. My biggest challenge over the past month has been to learn to use the isolation for more […]
Oh how my heart loves the days that are filled with excitement and joy, the days filled with people and business. The days that are filled with isolation or quietness once were dreaded… But I am learning to love the days when I can sit still and in peace, days that I can study the […]
