The Accidental Encourager

The Accidental Encourager

Photo credit: Matthewdwebb | Dreamstime   She had no idea of their value at the time… but the words my friend shared with me one day in a simple Facebook message became my life jacket… and the encouragement I needed to convince my mind and my heart to keep going. Ever been there? Life’s wavesContinue Reading

When Disappointment Dares

Disappointment came and visited my heart last night and I wasn’t exactly glad to see him. Something I hoped for, something I prayed for, something I looked forward to happening… Won’t.  Ever been there? Sounds so final, doesn’t it? So unhappily ever after. Not what was wanted. Not what was asked for. Like a ChristmasContinue Reading

Finding peace despite the crazy

 Got peace?   Well, do you? Do you have peace today? Sounds a little like the milk commercial we’ve all come to know, doesn’t it? Except I think most of us are less likely to scoff at the dairy product than we might at this question. I’ll admit that it seems harder and harder toContinue ReadingContinue Reading

Unsettled

Have you ever waited for God to work? You’re expecting, you’re counting, you’re hoping, you’re…. waiting. And the longer you wait, the more anxious you become? Or maybe the more perplexed? Or confused? Or discouraged? Have you ever waited for God to work? And yet, isn’t God working all the time? For even when HisContinue Reading

Distractions of Deployment

I’ve been thinking about writing this post for a while now (you know, in the month and a half I haven’t updated) but for whatever reason am just now sitting down at the keyboard to do it. If you keep up with me on Facebook, you know my husband has been on a TDY andContinue ReadingContinue Reading

Seeing God Through the Tough Times

One of the toughest times for a military wife is the season of deployment. I don’t care how strong your faith is, how deep your relationship with God has become – you will have moments of despair, feelings of hopelessness and silent prayers that things were not the way they were.Continue Reading

Finding Favor in the Rain

I really did not want to blog this morning. I have tried to blog several times over the last month or so but the words just don’t come out right. I want to inspire and motivate my readers, not bring you down, but the truth is that the past few months it’s been harder andContinue Reading

We Learn, We Grow, We Help Others Do the Same

Over the weekend I had a chance to hear from a few different reserve/NG wives thanking me for some of the advice/encouragement I’d given on the different boards/forums I visit. It feels good knowing that something I said helped someone else. It feels even better knowing that something good came out of the time weContinue Reading

The Treasure of Hope

We who have run for our very lives to God have every reason to grab the promised hope with both hands and never let go. It’s an unbreakable spiritual lifeline, reaching past all appearances right to the very presence of God… – Hebrews 6:18 I’d like to end this series with what I think isContinue Reading

When We’re Weak, God Makes Us Stronger

Part of last week I spent getting my son (and myself) organized as we count down until his new school year starts. I went into his room to do one thing, and then found myself completely cleaning it out. We sorted toys out he no longer plays with, pulled the clothes he no longer canContinue Reading
