5 WAYS PRAYER JOURNALING CAN CHANGE YOUR LIFE

5 Ways Prayer Journaling Can Change Your Life

I know what it means to “pray without ceasing” and have practiced that type of prayer for as long as I can remember. Throughout the day as worry surfaces or a friend makes a request, I talk to God about it immediately. It’s the kind of praying that’s usually silent and on the go, in the midst of other duties. I’ve found this kind of prayer to be a comforting reminder that God is always with me. But “praying on the go” should never take the place of regular, solitary time in prayer. Prayer journaling has become a vital part…

When a season of motherhood isn't what you expected . . .

When a Season of Motherhood Isn’t What You Expected

My life in this season of motherhood is not at all what I expected. I thought when my littles grew up, I would have all the time in the world to do all the things I couldn’t find time for when they were small. Thank goodness God didn’t give me what I expected. A decade ago my five children were 7, 8, 9, 13, and 14.

What will people think if you change your plans now? So what do you do when God calls you into a life you didn’t plan?   When God Called Me It’s 1983 and I…

Six Questions Every Mom Needs to Ask

My children aren’t the first idols to occupy space on the shelf of my heart; but definitely there is a very special spot reserved for them. Each one can command my mind’s attention and my heart’s affection like nothing else. That’s the definition of worship: The mind’s attention and the heart’s affection set on the object to be adored. While I might refer to my children as adorable, they are not THE object to be adored. God’s Word is clear that God alone is to be the object of our worship. But oh how often I allow other things–good things…

Wisdom Worthy: On Becoming a Mother-in-Law

I’ve had a few years to think about and prepare for becoming a mother-in-law but becoming “the old Mrs. Averette” is happening a little sooner that I thought it would, honestly. Yesterday he loved Star Wars, that old dog, and well . . . me. And then he met Molly. A Love Found I still remember how he first described her. “Mom, she’s a lot like you.” Silently I wait as he explains what he means. Thankfully, his description is nothing like the image in my mind of my 17 year old self.  I am touched that he knows my…
