The Stay at home mom life: He is my Healer

When I had my babies, one of the hardest things for me as a mother was when they began to fall sick. By God’s grace, my children are healthy. But when they do fall sick, it often brings to my mind parents of children with serious life threatening illnesses, and disabilities, and my heartbreaks for them. The pain they go through as parents is something My God knows all too well....

The Theology of Adoption: The Needy and the Needed

There are no words to describe how excited I was to reblog this post. Robin urges Christians to think about Adoption. Since we were adopted into the family of God, we should extend the love and opportunity God has given us to children in need of a home. We can start by giving to orphanages but we can go beyond that and give those children a family, a home. James 1:27 says “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” Perhaps, some of us are scared to bring a child with a history of trauma into our homes. We must look beyond that and see these children how God sees them. These children can experience a new life, their stories can be re-written when love is poured into them. My dear friends, think about adoption! Enjoy Robin’s inspirational post! Stay blessed.

The wife & times of Reverend Wootton

November is National Adoption month. There has been a plethora of sources and blog posts daily on my Facebook news feed. Huffpost, among others, has been diving headfirst into the fray with their series, trying to be balanced in their opinions, but mostly being conservative, as expected. What makes me saddest, is the total lack of evangelical voices. Not the ones who like to paint everything with sugar and roses, but the ones who take a big step back. Christians MUST think about adoption. Christians, who are pursuing the knowledge and grace of Jesus Christ DO think about adoption daily. Here’s some of what I mean.

If a Christian adoptee is having struggles with bitterness, chances are she has struggles with Christianity as a concept. But it probably isn’t her fault. It may be a result of poor communication from other Christians who are largely ignorant of adoption as a…

The Stay at home mom life: A season of intimacy with God

I am a wife and mother of 2 wonderful boys: a 3 year old and an 11 month old. It has taken me 4 years to say that with dignity and gratitude. 4 years of repenting, cleansing, molding before the Lord, to truly own up that role of a stay at home mother. 4 years…

How Early Childhood Experiences Shaped My Personality and Parenting Style

I grew up being a perfectionist, often times to avoid criticism from within the family. As an adult it carried over to my everyday life. Its caused problems in my workplace and relationships. Which carried over into areas of uncertainty in the form of self-doubt. I sought out affirmations from everyone and anyone.....

The Mind, The Battlefield

I had a dream last night that I feel impressed to share. In my dream I was walking around the city. With each store I passed, my mind was being invaded with thoughts. Thoughts of hopelessness, disappointment, anxiety, insecurity, there wasn’t anything off limits. My mind was filled with thoughts of death, thoughts of affair,…

Bringing a Smile to Mommy’s Face

One of my greatest pleasures as a mom is that my baby girl thinks I am the funniest human ever. My smile is contagious and her face lights up when I'm happy. When she sees me happy, she starts giggling and doing her jiggly dance. It works both ways as well. My heart swells with…

Becoming HIS Tapestry

Hey friends, how are you today? It has been raining since Sunday.The Lord and I talked about that, this morning.Of course, He already knew, but I thought I would just remind Him that it has been dark, gloomy, dreary and rainy since Sunday.I said I would be most grateful for a sunny, 70° Tuesday, instead of a rainy, 42° one, but He said, “Look up, child”.

‘still cloudy, Lord, but I will be thankful in spite of the clouds”

So, I did, and I said, ‘thank you, Lord for the rain.I will wear my boots instead of my opened toes heels and my umbrella and I’m sure it will be a good day. I will be thankful, it isn’t snowing.What’s the weather like, in your neck of the woods?

Did you know kids are a gift from God Almighty Himself? In spite of the circumstances surrounding their birth; all kids…

Reblog:Unplanned

Unplanned is next on my “to watch” list. I enjoyed reading this review by Anne and Brooke. I encourage every mom to check out this amazing blog for teen girls. To call abortion a human right is to classify the unborn as not human or non-living things. Mommas, let’s raise or voices and do something about the unjust killing of babies.

“I Knew You Before I Formed You In Your Mother’s Womb, Before You Were Born I Set You Apart.” ~Jeremiah 1:5 NLT

The Pureflix film, just newly released March 29 of this year, is the true story of Abbey Johnson, the youngest director of a Planned Parenthood clinic in Texas.

Even after working for Planned Parenthood for over 8 years, Abbey had never actually seen an abortion procedure, even though she had had two of her own. Until this particular time where she was asked to assist in an ultrasound guided abortion.

Abbey administered the ultrasound, as instructed by the abortionist doctor, only to be horrified as the tiny baby on the screen was ripped from it’s mother’s womb, despite the baby’s weak efforts to fight for it 13 week old life.

This is Abbey’s story of her gullible belief that abortion was a woman’s right because a baby wasn’t…

Reblog:The Season of ‘No’

Wonderful spiritual lesson by another Christian momma raising a toddler. My little one is only 9-month-old but I am already using the words, “Don’t” and “no”. One major take-away from this article is that God doesn’t keep things from us, He keeps them for us. This is why patience is important in our walk with God, parenting and doing life. Jess encourages us to accept the fact that some prayers we tag ‘unanswered’ or ‘NO’ from God may be for our good. Personally, the beauty of every NO is that they challenge me to seek God’s best in every situation. Enjoy this short article and be blessed!

“We don’t swim in the toilet!” No.

“Don’t feed your breakfast to the dog!” No.

“Don’t eat MY breakfast!” No.

“Don’t pee on the floor!” No.

Whew! You guessed it: these are some commonly overheard phrases in my home. Life with a toddler- what a season! Some days I feel like all I do is utter the word ‘no’ to her in one way or another. It’s a frustration to constantly speak it, but I can, in fact, accurately imagine that it’s frustrating to be on the receiving end of that word as well.

But why do I tell her no, or forbid her from doing things? Is it because I’m a big ol’ bully who just wants to be boss? Of course not. I don’t let her splash in the toilet because, germs. I don’t let her feed the dog because she needs the fuel herself. I don’t let…

Are babies Selfish,Needy or Just Dependent?

My transition into motherhood has given me the opportunity to reflect on the numerous ways my mother expressed her love for me before she died more than two decades ago. More importantly, this transition has brought me on a spiritual journey where God’s love is revealed through my son. It has awakened a new sense of daughtership in my walk with God.
