Think of your happiest moment. Are you picturing it in your mind? Perhaps it was the day you got that shiny, red bike you were dreaming about for months. Or maybe it was the day you shared your first kiss with the love of your life. Was it the moment you laid eyes on your… Continue reading The Sanctity of Surrender
They Are Not Mine
This story begins with my daughter in a drainage pipe. Yes, you read that correctly. My six-year-old, coaxed by her ten-year-old sister, decided it a good idea to crawl through the drainage pipe at the end of our driveway. Barely small enough to fit, she and her sister got a flashlight, a rake, and a… Continue reading They Are Not Mine
Language is simply fascinating to me. In high school, Etymology was by far my favorite subject. We use language all day, every day. We communicate information, emotions, ideas, and everything that falls in-between. This year, as I reflected on where I was at and where God was sending me, I kept landing on the word… Continue reading Come

When I was in college and in a child Psychology class, we discussed this very game. You see, babies, about… Continue reading Perception VS.Precision
"Though he slay me, yet will I trust in him..." Heartbroken doesn't really quite cut it when trying to describe our hearts some days. More like ripped out, stomped on, and thrown off a cliff. Have I gotten your attention with that one? Watching this thing unfold before our eyes is so difficult. The… Continue reading Slain
Putting All My Eggs in One Basket
In the DIPG world, I am a novice. The fact that we had never heard of DIPG, or known of any other child with a brain tumor, we feel, at times, lost. Where to start? What treatment is best? Do I go all natural? Do we do radiation? What about a biopsy? There are essential… Continue reading Putting All My Eggs in One Basket
