When Unbelief is Revealed in the Waiting

I was praying this morning and felt this in my spirit: When stuff hits the fan, God will still be there. The question is really, will I remain engaged with God in every season?

Making the Welcome Sign for Our Home

We certainly had a different picture for our forever home, but when God spoke a promise about this house and land, it changed everything in 2018.

Our 3 year anniversary is today, woohoo! It’s hard to believe it’s already been 3 years since we got married. It’s even harder to believe that we’ve been together for a total of 6 ½ years.

Goodbye Work, Hello Marriage

There have been a lot of changes for us recently. First thing’s first, I left my job. Before I get to that, I want to clarify a few things.  By working there, I learned about the administrative side of counseling that no one talks about. This information is so crucial because no one tells you … Continue reading Goodbye Work, Hello Marriage
