10 Ways to Obey God that Will Bring You More Joy!

      10 Ways to Obey God that Will Bring you More Joy   1. Pray: Praying out loud or on paper is a game changer. I could never personally keep up with a traditional prayer “journal”, so now I just journal my own way with bright pretty sharpies and blank white paper.

It’s quarter to 2am, the baby has been asleep for hours, so have the rest of the littles. I just can’t bring myself to go to my bed.

A Good Mom Moment

The times I genuinely feel like a good mom are few and far between. As a Christian the standard is high and I often fall short of what is required of me.  My kids and I read stories together and we memorize scripture, but I’m so far from where I know I should be in my speech and my attitude it genuinely hurts my heart sometimes.
