I woke with a start to the sound of insistent beeping. Disoriented and confused, I sat up and looked across the hospital room to a nurse huddled over my daughter’s IV, and only then did the last 24 hours come flooding back to me. Madi’s puking in the middle of the night, which turned into a trip to urgent care, which turned into a trip...

Rough Nights

I once thought that the sleepless part of parenting belonged to the first few months of our baby’s life. Now between sickness, teething, growth spurts, and nightmares, I wonder if I’ll ever be able to enjoy seven hours of uninterrupted sleep again. Last fall, we think our toddler had her first nightmare. She came crying to...

Confessions of a First-Time Potty Trainer

Sunday, November 24, 2013 Earlier this fall, I woke up one morning and decided it was a good day to potty train. I know some people potty train gradually and others quit diapers cold turkey. I had been doing the gradual thing since the beginning of the year but couldn’t stay on top of it after my son was born. I eventually got...

{No} Condemnation

Posted by on Sep 30, 2013 in Be Whole, Faith | 0 comments

Monday, September 16, 2013 [Introduction] It’s been a little while since I last wrote. That was before my son entered into the world in our 1997 Nissan Sentra. Yes, it’s true. Ever since that fateful night, I feel like my life catapulted into a world of emergencies and crises—sometimes real, sometimes just in my heart. Part of me is screaming...

Mothering {Faithful Cultivation}

Mothering {Faithful Cultivation}

Lately I’ve been struggling.  This inner battle between contentment and resentment, joy and envy, worth and worthlessness has consumed me the last few months.  Becoming a mother was the best gift I’ve ever received, but making the choice to stay at home with my son has been harder than I imagined.  My busy, interactive, and multitasking life...

Embracing Grace {the second time around}

Sunday, April 28, 2013 Hard to believe I’m down to the last two weeks of this pregnancy. In many ways, I was much better prepared for my firstborn—I slept a lot, ate healthier, exercised more often, and did a ton of reading and research. This time, I’m happy if I get a good nap when my toddler goes down in the afternoon. There is, however, one...

Spiritual Detox: 7 Days of Reflection and Renewal {Free Printable}

My husband and I have been getting our garden ready for the year. We’ve been buying our seed packs and making lists of plants we want, anticipating all that we can grow. But before we can plant any of it, we had to till up all the soil and pull out a lot of old unhealthy stuff so that we have room for the new planting and to make sure the soil is...

Saving Edmund

Sunday, March 31, 2013 When I was little, my mother would gather my siblings and me at bedtime to read a chapter from The The Chronicles of Narnia by C.S. Lewis. I remember wondering what Turkish Delight tasted like; I worried that the wolves would catch Mr. and Mrs. Beaver, Peter, Susan, and Lucy; and I cried when the White Witch killed Aslan on...

think on these things…

  Earlier this week, I spent some time talking to a small group of women about purity…in all parts of our lives. Sexual purity was the starting point, but we pushed it farther. What else sullies our thought life? What else distracts us? We made a list. An uncomfortable list.   Perfectionism. Anxiety. Jealousy. Food. Social...

What’s so terrible about the twos?

What’s so terrible about the twos?

Sunday, February 24, 2013 My daughter turned two this month. After hearing people talk about the “terrible twos,” I saw it coming even before she celebrated her birthday. Usually, it’s something small—like asking her to come so I can change her diaper and watching her run in the opposite direction. I know that in many cases, she’s just...
