Yes, I realize it’s Wednesday. But it’s a titus|tuesdays teaching day nonetheless! And I thought I’d go ahead and “Pour My Heart Out,” too.
I hope that doesn’t overwhelm you! (yeah, I couldn’t resist that)
Yesterday, I shared with you Part One of 7 Ways to Cope with Feeling Overwhelmed.
It was tough to share and teach on the topic with my Titus2Women’s group – since I feel like I’m right in the throws of this particular topic – but God gave me a message that I believe was just as much (if not more) for myself as it was for the women in my Bible study group.
And since I know nearly every woman has felt overwhelmed at one time or another, I felt that God wanted me to share it here, as well.
I pray yesterday’s first installment encouraged you and that today’s wrap-up with, too! Continue reading
Our Titus2Women group continues the Stuck study by Jennie Allen… and this week I think the topic hit close to home for every one of us.
I was tasked with teaching on this subject and boy was it – Well, overwhelming!
Today, I thought I’d share on the blog what God put on my heart for this all too real-to-me topic. He gave me a word to speak not only to the women in my group – but also to me. And I hope it encourages you, as well.
So today will be Part One of 7 Ways to Cope with Feeling Overwhelmed. (tune in for Part Two tomorrow) Continue reading
Wow. Did God give Jennie Allen a message to share, or what?
Each piece of this study has hit me hard and challenged me deeply.
Each one is something many of us, as women, struggle with. Many of us are stuck is a lot of these places (if not all of them – or is that just me?).
This week… Discontent. Continue reading
So, it’s been awhile since I’ve ventured onto the blog. My friend, Haverlee, put it perfectly on her own blog not long ago… She said, “When the blog is quiet, that usually means life is loud.”
Amen and amen.
I’ll spare you the boringish (to you) details and tell you that I’m hoping to be around a little more often. Mostly because I started a new book study with some of the Titus girls and it’s got my wheels turning.
For the summer, our large Titus2Women group has split into smaller groups for book studies. It’s been great so far and I’m looking forward to many more fun/challenging week ahead. Continue reading
Our Fruit of the Spirit study continues and I’ll just confess right now: I was so convicted this week.
It’s been a struggle at our house the past couple weeks. The cold weather has been lingering, the boys have been extra antsy and that’s led to a lot of fighting between the two of them.
On top of that, they’ve been really “testing” their boundaries lately. All that’s led to Mommy being a little more “fried” than usual… and I most certainly haven’t been a shining example of gentleness (or even a weak example).
Being tired and stressed (and the kids pushing my buttons) is no excuse. This is supposed to be something I’m striving toward every day, no matter the circumstances. Instead, I’m giving myself excuses for not trying my hardest or submitting to God in this area.
Like I said, I’ve been convicted. Continue reading
It’s been awhile since I’ve shared some of the things I’m thankful for. I intended to post this on Friday, but that didn’t go to plan. (of course)
I’m hoping I can at least be more consistent with my Friday blogging, so that in turn, I’ll be more consistent with sharing and reflecting on what I’m thankful for each week.
I guess whether it’s Friday or not – I’ll just shoot for being more consistent with being thankful. Continue reading
9 years ago we said “I do.”
Our adventure studying the Fruit of the Spirit continues! On the docket this week: Kindness.
It doesn’t seem that intimidating, does it? I can be kind. That’s not too difficult.
But what has struck me is this: Yes, I can be kind. But am I kind all the time? As my friend Mandey put it: Am I intentional with my kindness?
If I’m completely honest with myself (and all of you) I’d have to say no. I’m not kind all the time. Continue reading
I’m currently trying to not beat myself up for not getting blog posts up the past couple of days. I had been so happy that I’d been able to blog more regularly (despite the cold virus that hit our house even) But then Sunday, as I was rejoicing about coming to the end of this cold… I started feeling “yucky.”
I chalked it up to fibromyalgia pain and being tired.
Unfortunately, I was wrong.
Not that those are fun things to deal with, of course, but when I woke up Sunday night into Monday with a fever and chills… Yeah, that seemed worse to me. Continue reading
Not much to say on this Friday except… Go away snow!
Hmm, that’s not much of a start to a fortunate|friday post, is it?
Ok, let’s try again… I feel fortunate that it’s Friday! Seriously, who doesn’t love the weekend?
I love having my hubby home and us all being together.
We got quite the surprise on Tuesday in the form of much more snow than we anticipated.
So, much of this week’s list is snow/cold/stuck inside focused – I’m looking for the positives, people! Continue reading
