TOP POSTS OF 2016
On November 29th, a dear friend of ours died tragically from a brain aneurysm. Natalie was only 28 years old and 26 weeks pregnant with their first baby. I wrote this post in an attempt to find comfort in my own grief, but it must’ve resonated with countless others who were also grieving because it has since been shared 92 times and has been read by over 4,500 people. I trust you will also find comfort in these powerful Scriptures.
This post celebrates the miracle that God did for us last Christmas in the life of our youngest son, David. What began as a family holiday along the sunny coast of South Africa quickly became a parent’s worst nightmare. This is David’s story.
Hindsight is always 20/20, isn’t it? If I were to turn back the clock and start the MOM-journey again, this is what I would say. This is what I would promise. This is what I believe about being a Mom.
This post was the catalyst for finally starting my blog. Adeline Blumer was an amazing woman who radically influenced the way I saw God and the world around me. “Every child has a deep desire to be unique!” Our kids were made to change the world, not be overcome by it!
Sadly, I waited too long to tell her just what she meant to me before she lost her battle with cancer. This is my tribute to a powerful ‘mother’ in my life.
This is the first post of the 31 Days of MomAwesomeness Series, a collection of Mom Advice written specifically for the beautiful mommies that I’m privileged to walk with!
Day 1 beautifully captures the power of community. God always intended us to walk closely with other people—mothers, daughters, sisters, mentors, friends. We were never meant to figure these things out on our own. May you be inspired to open the door today and let someone in.
This is a guest post I wrote for Lesley over at Life in the Spacious Place blog. It explores what to do when things go wrong, and how God has used music to help me in my darkest moments.
Thanks again, dear friends, for sharing this journey with me! You are awesome, and I feel so privileged to share my thoughts and words with you!
Wishing all of you a very MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR!
♥ With much love,
