My Personal Testimony: Infertility and Miscarriage

So...... I was recently asked to share my testimony about God’s faithfulness through fertility issues and miscarriage... Honestly, I didn’t feel like it. It’s painful. It’s vulnerable. It’s not a happy topic. While I have shared these deep scars with other sisters in private, it’s not something I have ever done “publicly.” Partly, it is…

The Perfect Marriage

The perfect marriage is the united relationship between an imperfect man and an imperfect woman serving a perfect God. This man and woman are after God's heart despite their flaws. They work on their flaws while celebrating the beauty and uniqueness of each other. They forgive each other daily and do each other good everyday…

Here Today, Gone Tomorrow

"Bye, I will see you on ............", that's what I tell my clients at the end of every session. Sometimes, I don't get to keep those words because they are not a hundred percent mine to make happen. In August, I had a week of forced rest. I was too sick to work. I couldn't…

Intersubjectivity

While we are not experts in telepathy, we have a natural gift of knowing what someone else is thinking. When I find the little one doing something wrong, I know that he knows that I know that he knows that he is not doing the right thing. He is often quick to run away. We…

Source of Comfort

A month ago, I weaned the little one. He was exactly 15 month-old and I think that's good enough because I followed my momma instinct. It is great to breastfeed if one has no medical impediment. You can read more on breastfeeding by visiting the American Academy of Pediatrics website. Every mom should also be…

For the Season of Why Me

The little one's explorations are sometimes unsafe. When there is a sudden silence in the house, he can be found climbing a high chair to access items on the counter top or digging into the trash for idk what..He once reached for the burner and he sadly felt the heat. Parents of infants and toddlers…

Baby’s First Words

From dada to bae, then "bye bye", "thank you", "sorry", "apple", attempts to say "ball", and long conversations I really wish we understand. I am in awe! It sounds like speaking in tongues for the first time. It is safe to say mommy, daddy and the little one's teachers are doing a great job building…

Cabbage Weaning Lesson

In case you don't know, cabbage weaning is a thing. A thing my fitness coach brought to my attention two months ago. Whoever discovered or invented putting cabbage leaves on the breast to help reduce engorgement deserves a Faith Award. How did the woman come up with that? What was she thinking? I find it…

Celebrating Fellow Christian Bloggers

Today, I would like to celebrate and honor two amazing Christian bloggers. I am moved by their faith in our Lord, Jesus Christ despite the trials they face. So many times, we allow our experiences to get in the way of the truth. The truth that our God is a miracle worker and He is…

Ice Cream Lessons

What were we thinking? Yesterday, we gave the little one ice cream at a church event few hours before his bed time. After hours of trying hard to comfort him and put him to sleep, we realized giving him ice-cream was a bad idea. The little one enjoyed the ice-cream experience but it wasn't worth…

Worship in the Car

These days, my car is one of the places I get alone with God. I drown myself in worship songs, laugh, sing and scream like I am insane. My car is also a place of reflection and meditation. Heavy traffic and rude drivers have nothing on me when I am jamming to worship songs. My…

Ghosts in our Marriage

Isn’t it sad that history repeats itself even when we say “I will never do that” or “I want something better for me and my children”? Why do most people who watched their parents fight constantly; watched their father get drunk and abused their mother; and noticed their mother or father obsessively control the home repeat the same thing. Why do they repeat their history of trauma despite desiring something better?

I am good, You are loved- God

I pray that you encounter God's love through this song. I have been blessed by it since the beginning of the week. Play it in your car, play it in your house, and let your spirit come alive. We are covered by love! Through your story is My fingerprintIn the valley there is confidenceIn the…

Honoring My Parents-in-law

One thing I desired before marriage was to have a great relationship with my parents-in-law. I actually prefer to call them parents-in-love. Few months ago, I celebrated my mother-in-law for her love. Whether we like it or not, our parents-in-law come with the package when we marry our spouse. Our relationship with them can either…

God as Your Father-in-Law

The enemy’s goal is to divide and conquer our home. He needs our partnership to fulfill his evil mission. The rate of divorce in the church is alarming. The family is the bedrock of every society. Divorce contributes to societal breakdown, it affects the emotional well being of couples and their children. If Christians get marriage right, the world will get it right. John 13:35, they will know we are Christians by our love. Love is patient, kind, long-suffering, selfless, doesn’t bear record of wrong (1 Corinthians 13: 4-8).

This post by Michael Griego will change how you view your spouse. If God is your father-in-law, how will you treat your spouse? Enjoy this powerful message!

Biblical Viewpoint

Most of us go into marriage with good intentions but selfish hearts. If you want to change your marriage, spend some time thinking about God as your Father-in-Law.

From a worldly perspective, if you review even a portion of the vast array of books and advice on good practices in healthy marriages, you can generate a long list of keys to happiness and success. But if you approach marriage from a Biblical perspective and look at marriage as the God-ordained construct it is, marital happiness and success can be surmised from just a few verses in the Old Testament (Genesis 2:24) cited by Jesus himself in the New Testament (Matthew 19:4-6), and an extended passage written by the Apostle Paul (Ephesians 5:22-32).

From these verses, I’d summarize the Biblical view and keys to a happy marriage as follows:

  • Both husband and wife love, honor, and worship God.
  • The husband…

In Honor of 9/11

Powerful message by Alicia with a 9/11 testimony that will leave you speechless. Be blessed!

For His Purpose

***If time is an issue don’t even read my blog post, just go straight down to the video and be sure to watch the whole thing; it’s an incredible testimony of a man (pilot) who was originally scheduled to fly the first plane to crash on 9/11.***

When Nate and I first began homeschooling our kids we attended an annual homeschool conference every Spring. We had some best friends who would also go and we’d all make a long weekend out of it, enjoying adult company with one another. Some of our best memories have come from those days.

During the time that we’d spend at the actual conference I’m pretty sure the guys found most of their entertainment counting the number of pregnant women and sneaking cat naps hoping us wives wouldn’t notice. Each year the homeschool conference would host a guest speaker and to be honest some years…

Grieving Parents

While working as a healthcare specialist in the U.S. Army, I had to pre-screen patients before directing them to the doctor. I remember being briefed about a young female soldier grieving the loss of her child. I can't remember the full details surrounding the baby's death. I remember being told to be very sensitive when…

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,…
