Sisters, I'm so RIDICULOUSLY excited. I've got some awesome plans for the next few months. I'm going to be recording Sisters for Real podcasts and releasing them every week. Of course, before I can do that I have to learn how to record and post a podcast - since I have NO idea how to do that. But hey! How hard can it be? (Dying a little on the insi...
My dear Sisters for Real,
I've been quiet for quite some time now. People have been asking me why I haven't been blogging or writing. "I haven't heard from you in so long!"
I could blame it on being busy, but that would be less than the truth. The honest answer is that I've been losing hope, and without hope, I languish. My creativity...
My previous post, Confessions of an Imperfect Christian Wife, was my most widely read post ever. Like, by a gazillion. Apparently, when I let people in to reality of my life, it's interesting. Considering that the entire POINT of this blog is to encourage women to be real, I should have seen it coming.
So since getting real is what...
Warning and disclaimer: I'm about to get really real. Read at your own risk.
Last night we had dinner guests (love it!) and house guests (my in-laws, love them!), and a wonderful discussion took place about God's faithfulness in the hard times. We talked about how sometimes in the difficult places God teaches us things, and that often we are...
Our local Sisters For Real Bible Study has just started the book of Romans. Which is pretty adventurous for us, since prior to now, we've only tackled books with 5 or less chapters. Romans, with its 16 chapters, seems long and daunting to study in depth. But we rolled up our sleeves, opened our various translations, and dug in.We got stuck on the v...
Luke 9:3 - "Jesus told them: Take nothing for the journey - no staff, no bag, no bread, no money, no extra tunic."Lately God has been talking to me, again and again, about purpose. He's been challenging me to treat each day as if it is filled with purpose, to be resolute in my determination to achieve each day's purpose, and to seek out ways t...
In my dreams, the perfect day would consist of a cozy bed, comfortable pajamas, and ABSOLUTELY NOTHING that needs to be done. Just hours upon hours of sleep and rest.
This is probably because my life consists of almost constant activity. From the time the alarm sounds to the time I shut my eyes at night, it is GO GO GO, all the live-long day...
It's the middle of the night. I hear a noise I don't recognize. I'm wide awake.
This is a serious problem. Not because the noise is scary. Not because the noise itself is so loud or irritating that it will keep me awake. It's a problem because until I've identified what the noise is, I won't be able to sleep.
My mind will give me...
I attended a women's conference last weekend. There were amazing, humorous, intelligent women sharing about their lives and their struggles. There was beautiful music, laughter, fellowship. There was only one thing missing.
In a desire to be welcoming, to be a safe place for all women to come - the conference organizers took a ...
This morning, I was snappy with my husband. I asked him if he thought my shirt was too short to wear with leggings, and he replied in the affirmative. I was irritated because it meant changing my outfit and I was already running late. He took the brunt of my frustration. Then I left the house, slamming the door behind me.Oh dear.I wish I could say ...
