Where I’ve Been

If you still come visit my website, you’ll see that my writings are sporadic at best. For the last several months, I have not been as faithful in getting posts up as I used to be nor have I even had the most quality of material. I don’t want to say that I don’t have anything to say because I do. However, I have less to say than I did. Now, I’m listening more to my Heavenly Father and trying to talk less. More of Him, less of me.

Clear as mud?

I am also diving headfirst into my family. My husband holds two very busy and intense roles at our church. He loves it, we love it, but it still can be stressful at times for him. So I try to make sure that our home is his sanctuary and that things run smoothly here. After all, I am the Home Engineer.

Two of my sons are about to turn 14 and 9. While they don’t need the constant care that a toddler or infant does, they still need me. In fact, my oldest is going to be a high schooler in a few months and I am realizing just how little time with him I have left. I am moving from disciplinarian to life coach for him. My youngest is still knee deep in boyhood but that will end before I know it. I so want them to know Christ deeply and want to follow Him for the rest of their days. And that, my friends, takes every bit of energy I have so I pour it into them.

So where’ve I been? 

Spending time at the feet of Jesus.

Being a wife. A mom. A friend. An email responder. An occasional speaker to women. 

That’s where.

Thanks for reading (and listening).

    While I miss your posts, I’m so much more blessed by your example in making your God, your husband and your children your priority.

    Grace and peace,

    I agree with Grace and thank you for such a humble post. You inspire me to be the best I can be. I love how you say your sitting at the feet of Jesus. I think if I can say this everyday then I will want to spend more time with Him. Spending time with your children is so important time goes by fast and you have to make sure your sons are ready to face the world. :-)

    Just wanted to say ‘Thank You!’ I picked up your book shortly after my husband came clean about his pornography addiction and multiple affairs throughout our 21 years of marriage. I felt like I was reading my own thoughts as I read the pages. Like you, God never told me to leave and we are walking through this together. God has taken all of the lies, broken promises and lost dreams and is slowly rebuilding our marriage – stronger than it has ever been. I hope to be an inspiration to other women someday. In the meantime, I want to let you know how much your walk has inspired me on this tough journey. God bless!

    There is not a better place to be than at the feet of Jesus! I know what you mean I have a 14, 9 and 5 year old. Time goes by so fast. Those are the top priorities Jesus, husband and children so I completely understand! I love reading what you what have to say so I’ll be here whenever you get the chance to write :)
