I’m a restless waiter. I don’t know if it’s a lack of patience or a lack of faith, but I have a hard time waiting on God. I’d rather take matters into my own hands. To get the ball rolling and start making plans then ask him to come along and bless them. Why should […]

    Megan - I get this so much! Even with a tiny human who’s 1, there are still some days I find myself wondering what on earth is next. Like, I can do two things at once God, give it to me! I’m also a photographer turned SAHM, and some days I wonder if I’m supposed to go back full time into, then other days I know I’m not. this is such a beautiful post!ReplyCancel

    Michelle - I needed this so much right now. I’ve been feeling for weeks like God’s been speaking into my life telling me I need to wait on Him but I am the worst at that. Sunday’s service was all about “Yet Praise”, praising Him while we are waiting on Him. And again He just keeps telling me to wait on Him. And then He even uses your blog to speak to me! So thank you for letting God use to speak to others. :)ReplyCancel

      Lyndsay - I love that he is so patient with us – speaking the same message to us over and over through different people. He is patient even when we are not! Just another way he’s a great father!!ReplyCancel

When he was little this was the “time-out” chair. I mean, we mainly just used it on days that end in y. ;) But now it’s the “learning to read” chair! Kingston is loving kindergarten, and we’re so thankful! He brings home a book to read (or for me to read) every night for homework. […]

My absolutely favorite beach activity is searching the sand for shark teeth. It’s relaxing, challenging, and dare I say it? Therapeutic! One of those mindless activities that allows you to completely zone out. Ahh! It’s the same reason I enjoy pulling weeds in our yard. But that’s another story, and you’re thinking I’m really weird […]

    jojo - I love this post! I love finding simple treasures on the beach but my most favorite is sea glass and sharks teeth!(: The biggest sharks tooth Josh found was in the soft, white sand far away from the water. I would love to know the explanation for that as well!(:ReplyCancel

    Rebecca Vincent - That is so cool. I am no where near a beach but I’d probably be looking every day for shells, teeth, any good adventurous finds in the sand.

    Wendy - All so true. Gave a tutorial to someone admiring my collection that was almost verbatim to the above. Shark tooth hunters unite! It helps to wear polarized sunglasses, and if you need glasses, you’ll probably want to wear Rx sunglasses or you won’t be able to see.ReplyCancel

      Lyndsay - Oh that’s good! Good sunglasses definitely keep me from getting headaches at the beach too. Thanks Wendy!!ReplyCancel

I eat pretty healthy most of the time and can usually get through the day making good food choices. But then it’s 9:00pm, and we’re sitting down to watch a show on Netflix. Suddenly I find myself sneaking goldfish snacks out of the pantry and eating half the bag. Or Anderson offers to run out […]

Holding her hand, he said to her, “Talitha koum,” which means “Little girl, get up!” Mark 5:41 When we first found out about my brain tumor a few years ago, there were more questions than answers, and on some days, more fear than faith.
