Recently I married my best friend December 18, 2016. This has been the most amazing 7 month whirlwind of love, and pure joy that I’ve ever experienced. Dylan and I have grown closer than ever. We are learning how to bring everything to God first and putting the Lord above ourselves and seeing each other the way God sees us-that is how we can learn to be selfless and therefore love each other..
Have you felt like a weight has fallen over you? Are you stuck in a place in life where nothing seems to be changing? Where the same thing happens day in and day out and you’re not getting anywhere? Have you prayed and begged God for something and not seen an answer? Do you feel like you’re being held back but can’t put a finger on what it is that’s got a hold over you?
Maybe you are a mom with..
I grew up reading (and rereading) the insanely popular relationship books on courtship and dating. Titles like, “When God Writes Your Love Story,” “When Dreams Come True,” “I Kissed Dating Goodbye,” “Boy Meets Girl” and several others were well worn books on my bookshelf.
As a 14,15,16 and 17 year old girl I was gung ho on board with the idea of “leaving the pen in God’s hands.”
I trusted God..
Love is a complicated infrastructure.
A thing you are either building up or letting fall into decay.
What makes it strong are the deeds done in the everyday walk of life.
What makes it beautiful is two unique people coming together and making their own unique kind of love.
It doesn’t come from textbooks or formulas, or to-do lists.
You’ve probably seen my parents from afar, either online here..
Let’s say that you’re at a time in your life where you could be in a relationship that leads to marriage. What are you doing to prepare for that role? It is an important stage in your life and you will probably (with God’s hand) be married for the rest of your life. But if we are headed for such a huge blessing and responsibility, then what are we to do to prepare for that?
I’ve heard this phrase many times, and yet somehow it makes me smile every time. The thought of sitting behind the wheel expecting to go somewhere but never putting the gear in drive seems ridiculous, yet how many of us live our lives just like this? Do you feel like your life is in park?
Ever try to drive a parked car?
God wants to be the one in charge of the wheel and the One to give..
She plopped down on the couch, readjusting the the throw pillow she knocked out of place. That was the end of it. The whole first floor was immaculately clean. Martha Stewart couldn’t have found a way to make it more spotless. She looked down at the phone in her hand. “I just loaded the kids in the car. We will be home in less than thirty minutes.”
Less than thirty minutes, and her immaculate..
Just a few days ago we celebrated Valentines Day. It’s a great day to show your friends and family how much you love them. But if you are a single girl, it’s a also a day that maybe might have made you feel a little left out or lonely when you see other couples being sweet to each other. You might be wishing that someone loved you like that and wondering when they were going to come along.
If you are at all like me, you have a busy life, with lots to do, lots of work, lots of family, and a lot of responsibility. My family owns and operates a web design business from home; we home-school, cook and clean, care for a 20 acre Ranch, and care for each other on a daily basis.
With all of the work that is put into our farm and business it’s easy to become discontent and unhappy with the..
Hello there, Beautiful!
It is the start of a new year, new goals, new friends, new days to begin and enjoy. As we look back on the year we have just experienced we are reminded of the times we were made stronger through hard days, the times we smiled and laughed so hard we couldn’t control ourselves, the times we loved deeply, and the times we cried ourselves to sleep. But we look ahead,..
