10 Gifts to Encourage Your Little Girl’s Faith

Next up on the Christmas gift guides ... little girls! Y'all, I can't lie, I love the little ones at Christmas. My favorite Christmas picture of Casiday is when she was almost two. She's wearing the cutest Christmas sweater and a Santa hat. She had those chubby toddler hands and is holding a big red ornament. And, she has the biggest wad of bubble gum in her mouth. I put it out every year because I love it so much. It was so fun researching and curating this list for all of us who will ... [Read More]

10 Gifts to Inspire Your Tween Girl’s Faith

Those tween years are super hard. Part girl, part teen with all kinds of hormones and changes in personality and physicality — these years between 9 and 13 can be completely overwhelming for us as moms and for our sweet girls as well. So many of the moms I know with girls in this age group want to be super intentional about investing in their girl's spiritual life during this season — but they really aren't sure how to do it! I totally understand, and I felt the same way when my girl ... [Read More]

Best Faith Inspiring Gifts for Teen & Young Adult Girls

It's hard sometimes to figure out what to get our girls as they get older. Long gone are the days when we could walk down that Barbie aisle or hit up the American Girl store and be done. Clothes are often a risky proposition and somehow it's not the same to have our girls open up boxes with gift cards inside. {I do have lists for tweens and for little girls also.} I love choosing gifts for my almost 20-year-old daughter that will inspire her to continue growing spiritually. I'm always on ... [Read More]

The 4 Ps of Lopsided Living during the Holidays

Hey friend! I'm so glad you are here and I can't wait to share some thoughts about one of my favorite topics as it relates to one of my favorite times of year. About ten years ago, I realized all the talk about finding balance in our lives didn't sit well with me. And the more I considered why that was, I began to recognize that the times in my life when I've been most content and most certain I was doing exactly what God had called me to were seasons when I was definitely NOT living the ...

20 Family Advent Resources {2019}

Y'all, I know it's barely November and Thanksgiving is late this year but, seriously, it will be December 1 before we know it. And if you are anything like me, you always have great aspirations for doing Advent as a family but somehow the execution always ends ups being not what you'd hoped. This year, I wanted to create a list of easy family Advent resources ... and by easy I mean, even I could probably manage these! :) But before we get to the list, I want to remind you of a couple of ...

20 Times Jesus Spoke Directly to a Woman … and He Never Once Said, “Go Home!”

Y'all, there is a fire burning in me today ... and it started on Saturday when I first saw the video of John MacArthur and company at the Truth Matters conference. {Let's not even get into why the name of the conference is its own brand of irony. Also, I am not going to link the video ... you can find it easily enough for yourself.} I don't think Beth Moore needs me to defend her. But I do think other women need to see me say THIS IS WRONG! We don't have license to mock and denigrate each ... [Read More]
