Questioning God’s Plan


Today I’m participating in the Ultimate Blog Swap. You’ll find me posting over at Dried on Milk posting on Summer Survival, and I’m excited to welcome JessieLeigh from Parenting Miracles to The Confident MomI know you will be touched with her story.

“Please God… please God… please God.”

Over and over, I repeated those two words as I watched the overhead lights flash by.  On my back, on my own, lost and wondering how- HOW– this could possibly be God’s plan.  A baby, so cherished, so wanted, coming so early… too early.  All the statistics delivered in somber serious tones made fear run cold in my veins.

Yet, still, I knew I was blessed to even be there… so lucky that I would have the opportunity to see and know my precious, already beloved child. [Read more…]

Ten Minute Tuesday – 5/17


Welcome to my weekly feature, Ten Minute Tuesday, where I encourage you to take ten minutes to slow down and take in some music from one of my favorite Christian artists.  This week I am sharing “Nothing Compares” by Third Day.  Love, Love this band – it was one of the first bands that really touched me when I first became a Christian.

Take a few minutes and enjoy!

I will praise the Lord no matter what happens.  I will constantly speak of HIS glories and grace.   Psalm 34:1

Ten Minute Tuesday – 5/10


I have missed a few weeks in my Ten Minute Tuesday series – sorry ladies!  You know how it goes, life takes over and before you know it the week is over.  A mom shared this song/video on her facebook page last week and I loved it, Blessings by Laura Story. I hope you can take a few minutes and sit down and breath in this beautiful song.  Enjoy!

Turn to Him so He can…….send you wonderful times of refreshment from the presence of the Lord.   Acts  3:19

Finding Your Happy Place


“We have a choice every day regarding the attitude we will embrace for that day.  We cannot change our past…..we cannot change the fact that people will act in a certain way.  We cannot change the inevitable.  The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude.  I am convinced that life is 10% what happens to me and 90% of how I react to it.” – Charles Swindoll

I think I need to read that quote everyday, how about you?

It is so easy to begin our day fresh and full of energy, but soon things begin to happen ‘to us’ and our attitude is quickly altered by those around us.  I think this is one of the key things to keep in mind when trying to be the CALM mom we all want to be.  Managing our attitude in the midst of all the drama!

Ten Minute Tuesday 4/12


Welcome to Ten Minute Tuesday, a feature here every week where I share a music video to encourage you. I have always loved Hillsong and honestly have not listened to them lately on my Ipod.   So today I share Let Us Adore by Hillsong.  I love these words and they certainly help me slow down and reflect on Him.

I hope you are uplifted today and refreshed!

If you are viewing this in an RSS feed or email, you will need to click through to view the video.

Your greatest glory will be that you belong to Him.  II Thessalonians 1:12
