The B-I-B-L-E

“The B-I-B-L-E!
Yes, that’s the book for me!
I stand alone on the Word of God,
the B-I-B-L-E!”
I remember singing that song at church as a child. The lyrics have a whole new meaning for me today than they did 20+ years ago. Back in January 2017, I started my journey of reading through the Bible. This was a new year’s resolution of mine that I actually kept and completed. Here are a few things I wanted to share with you from my experience of reading the Bible in entirety.

Sweet Home Alabama

My family and I recently spent four days in Alabama at our first RhizoKids International Conference. Words cannot fully describe how it felt to be in the same room with 20+ other families who are experiencing or have experienced raising a child with RCDP. I cannot speak for everyone who did attend, but I think it’s safe to say we felt encouraged, we felt normal, we felt loved. It definitely took a village to make this conference happen, and I am forever grateful for all who contributed. I am grateful for your serving hearts.

Brag on B

I’ve realized when your child reaches a milestone, your body starts doing funny things – and it happens FAST. Your eyes suddenly well up with tears.

The Cactus

About two years ago to the season, if not to the month, Mark and I were walking around the block in our neighborhood. We got stopped by our neighbors Mr. Joe and Mrs. Peggy, a sweet couple that are members at the church we attend. Little did we know that our pit stop would entail … More The Cactus


My sister and I were running together for the first time in months. I think many will agree, the most difficult part of exercise is getting started. At this point in any exercise program, it’s easy to be discouraged and seek distractions – the aching muscles, the soreness to come, being out-of-breath. Trying to refocus to finish our run, I asked my sister where does she look while she runs – up ahead towards the goal or down just beyond where her feet land? … More Focus

Choose Joy

“Disappointments are inevitable, discouragement is a choice.” – Dr. Charles Stanley

I read this statement posted by a friend on social media. Her situation and her circumstances are far different than mine in my mind, yet we are both dealing with the same thing: an opportunity to be discouraged. … More Choose Joy

Attitude of Gratitude

“Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Philippians 4:6-7 (KJV)

If you read Philippians 4:6-7 carefully, you can pinpoint a seemingly simple challenge so that we may experience His Truth: Don’t be anxious. Pray. Be thankful. And then His perfect peace will fill you. … More Attitude of Gratitude
