Compromise by Amy

What is it that’s really important?   I know that I say God is my most important priority, as Lord of my life; but am I really reflecting that? How I spend my time doesn’t reflect that.  The thoughts that run through my head don’t reflect that.  My actions and … Continue reading

Desperate? by Kendra

“You are acting desperate.  What is wrong?” asked my husband. I didn’t have words to explain it.  Tears after tears ran down my face.  Did he really call me desperate?  Rarely has that word been used to describe me.  Was I? I knew I was tired.  Our daughter was sick. … Continue reading

Grace

“It’s growing again.”  Three words I (Kendra) never want to hear again.  That last time I heard it was June of 2016.  Since then, I have been overwhelmed with a wide range of emotions: anger, fear, thankfulness, jealousy, love, and so much more. This year has changed me. I question … Continue reading
