My Authentic Life

Yep, it’s been a while. Nevertheless here’s an interesting and enlightening post.  I wrote this poem back on November 22, 2009 and really had no intentions of posting it here. However,  I’m sharing it with you on what would be my 16th wedding anniversary, had my college sweetheart not decided he needed a break (2) [...]

What I Love and Hate About School Open Houses

I love days like today. Today my 5 year old had her class’s “Open House”. She was so excited about going that it seemed like every 2 minutes she was trying to count me down, until it was really time to go. Which as you can imagine, took forever, in her mind. During the open [...]

Make It a "Triple Hooray" Day!

Well, despite the way it appeared my day started off yesterday, (Up & At ‘em Down Single-Parenting Lane) I’m happy to report it turned out to be remarkable in several ways. As a matter of fact, it all started right after I wrote the post about Wednesday being just “one of those mornings” “chuckle” Next [...]

Up & At 'em Down Single-Parenting Lane

Okay, so when I woke up this morning, it was just “one of those days”! You know, the kind we all have, right? I mean, I was tired, because I stayed up too late. I couldn’t roll over because at the moment I realized both my girls had made their way in my bed, which [...]

Vince Gill, Amy Grant Open Up on Marriage and Divorce – The Boot

I thought this was very interesting. I remember when all the “hoopla” over Amy Grant and Vince Gill happened, as I lived in Nashville at the time. When high-profile “celebrity” Christians divorce, there’s always some sort of tabloid speculation their families have to deal with. Here’s a snippit: Following their respective divorces more than a [...]

The Enemy Is Assigned To "Steal, Kill or Destroy" Christian Marriages

When going through Divorce  as a Christian or the “possibilities of one” and realizing that the (3) MAIN things the enemy comes to do is “kill, steal and destroy”, you have to really look at your situation and sincerely seek God for direction. What I have learned is that everyone who “tries to counsel” you [...]

Christian Divorce:Wrestling With Hope

18 months ago, I would never imagine that I’d be ready to let folks into such an intimate part of my life. However, as I move into 2010, I realize how important it is to share with hopes of encouraging others to share and heal as well. So far, I’ve had several messages from those [...]
