The More than Mom Summit: How to Let Go of Mom Guilt, Take Care of Yourself, and Rediscover You, is a community of moms who are sharing their knowledge about letting go of mom guilt, finding the space to practice self-care, and acknowledge our deep desires that say we are created for more. I am so excited to be a part of this interview series, and the community of over 20 women (including Leeana Tankersley, Jill Savage, Suzi Whitford, Jenny Layton, and Ashley Willis, just to name a few), to share with you what we’ve learned through our journeys of motherhood.Read More
From one of those houses surrounded by pine trees too many to count, a mom and one of her three daughters faithfully prayed. The prayers drifted up to heaven like smoke from their chimney. The daughter, my younger sister’s classmate, asked God to draw my sister and me to Himself. The prayers went up. Life went on. Years went by.Read More

Mondays will be a sampling of posts I’ve written for #shereadstruth.
Wednesdays will be short devotionals on what I’m currently reading during my personal Bible study

Hello from the IF:Gathering here in Austin, TX. What an honor to spend time with so many Christian women leaders of similar heart. This global gathering of women not only includes the 2500 attendees here in Austin (tickets sold out in four minutes!) but over 2000 IF:Local groups all across the U.S. and around the world. It’s estimated that 500,000 people viewed the event last year. God is raising up an army of courageous women to link arms and live for the glory of God and the good of others.
Part of my contribution will be on stage Saturday morning with Margaret Feinberg, Rebekah Lyons and Esther Havens as we dive into John 15. Time will be limited so I thought I’d expand a bit on the four color clicky pen method of reading the Bible here. I’m also taping IF:Equip videos with Jeanne Stevens and wanted to include the part from 2 Timothy 3:16 about Scripture in this post.Read More
Oh my. My daughter just informed me.
The year 2024 is closer than the year 2005.
This of course has nothing to do with anything currently spinning around my little mind. I’m sipping a Pumpkin Spice iced frappuccino sweating in 90 degree weather and sniffing my unlit cinnamon pumpkin candle (too hot outside to light). These are my meager attempts to capture autumn. The calendar informs me fall arrived last week, but each day feels like endless summer. Just like 2005 feels closer than 2024.
Today I am reminded to base my faith on facts, not feelings. I don’t feel any different the day before, the day of and the day after my birthday. But the fact is each birthday marks the passing of another year. Okay, and sadly the fact is I need reading glasses now. God’s character and His Word remain steadfast and unchanging. My feelings are fickle and change based on my circumstances. We do well to invest in knowing and learning about the facts of our faith rather than rely on our feelings to dictate how we decide to live.Read More
