Today I’m staying home. Not because I don’t believe in equal rights. Not because I don’t believe in dignity for all people. Today I’m staying home because I believe our President and our nation needs my prayers more than my protests. Today I’m staying home because I’m hopeful, not in one man or one administration, but in one God, one Savior. Today I am staying home because my voice doesn’t need to be heard nearly as much as His voice needs to listened for.
Today I’m staying home because I believe and embrace that as a wife and a mother my place is in our home. That doesn’t mean I can’t help to provide for my family, that I can’t work outside of the house we live in, and it doesn’t mean I shouldn’t be paid the same as a man to do the same job. But my place, my highest calling as a wife and a mother is in fact inside of our home. I am called to love my husband, to support and encourage him. To put his needs and yes his desires before my own. That doesn’t make me less, it makes me his helpmate. His biggest cheerleader. I am called to nurture our family and to raise up children who will love and serve The Lord, putting the needs of others before their own.

Memorizing scripture has been a conviction of my heart from the Holy Spirit lately. I don’t know about you, but these last few days since the brutal attack on Israel by Hamas on the morning of October 7, 2023, my heart has been heavy. The stories of what is happening in Israel are nothing short […]
It makes me feel uncomfortable inside, but recently, when I find myself without anyone to talk to at a gathering (like after church or at a social event), I walk over and just join another group. It might seem silly, but for me, it’s always a little scary. Joining groups I haven’t been invited to […]
So this guy pulls out a Bible on a plane… It sounds like the start of a joke right? Except, it wasn’t a joke. In late September I headed out on an adventure from the mountains of far Northern California to the mountains of East Tennessee for a Christian women’s retreat for writers, podcasters and […]
