Helping moms create space for fun, family, and faith
Do you ever just feel like giving up?
You have hopes, but keep hitting roadblocks...
it's just too hard?
I had that day a few months back and God sent me a message at just the right time --
It came out through my printer!
Please allow me to share the story with you through this video.
It encouraged me, and I hope it will also encourage you.
Comment and let me know that you are choosing to NOT quit.
If you have a friend who is ready to quit, please share this post with her.
Blessings, my friend!
“They say Aslan is on the move— perhaps has already landed.” Yes, I do believe He has.
In July, as I took long walks in the Eleven Mile Canyon while my husband fly fished, I spent hours in prayer. I rarely encountered people, so it worked really well to just go ahead and talk out loud to God.
Over and over again I heard out of my mouth “Roar, Lion of Judah” and I imagined that great lion Aslan, from the Chronicles of Narnia series, standing boldly up on the high cliffs.
When I came home and told a friend about all the “Roar, Lion of Judah” proclamations, she asked what that meant. I told her I was not exactly sure.
All of 2020 I had my phone screen saver set to a Lion and Lamb in the clouds picture, and I had been reflecting much on Jesus, the Lion of Judah.
I was captured years before by the lion Aslan, the central figure of the Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe and the other Chronicles of Narnia books.
He shows up in chapter twelve as...
2020...BEST YEAR EVER...period.

I am grateful the first week of January 2020 I felt the Lord whisper to my heart Redeem the time on your knees.
As I sought to honor that directive and carved out more time than usual to pray and be in the Word, I saw Him multiply my time in unexpected ways and was reminded of Matthew 6:33, "Seek first the Kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added unto you."
If I had known in January all the challenges that the next 12 months would hold, it would have been too heavy a burden to bear.
But day by day the Lord met me as I bent my...
I pray a blessed Thanksgiving for you and your family this year.
I would guess your kids aren't being taught the strong Christian origins of not only Thanksgiving, but the founding of America itself?
I know I never heard it in school, and much of it I only learned this year after doing some digging.

Yesterday I was discouraged...
It's so hard to see so many in our nation suffering,
I have a child who is struggling with online school at home,
People are divided on so many issues,
We are experiencing the hottest summer in Phoenix's history,
and I'm concerned our freedoms and Republic could slip away.
A dear friend reminded me of this precious, tender hymn last night and it soothed my soul. Now I want to share it with you.
