It’s hard to move forward when everyone’s not on the same page! This can be true as friends, in families, on the job and at church, right? It’s easy to think everyone should just get on your page, but what if the best thing is that God get us all on His page together? A terrible dream reminded me of this truth just the other day.Read More

What happens if someone other than our spouse has access to our love bank? They can gain access without you even knowing it, and their deposits can put us in a very slippery place. Why is this so important and what can we do? Read more here about this two-part series at The Laundry Moms.Read More
I love a good spy movie! I’m intrigued with Hollywood’s romanticized portrayal of secret intelligence operatives who scan crime scenes, analyze clues, vet leads, exploit assets, assume undercover personas, and utilize futuristic technology to coordinate multi-state and even international black ops, all in the name of outsmarting criminals and maintaining national security. In the safety of a Hollywood studio, I think it would be so much fun to be an agent! In real life, that’s exactly what today’s Proverbs 31 target calls us to be. Target ELEVEN: Diligently watching over our households.Read More
I have a love/hate relationship with exercise. I love the way I feel afterward, but I hate doing it. If only I was 4″ taller and could maintain a super model’s figure without lifting a finger (except to raise dark chocolate to my mouth)! Most days, I walk/jog or work out to a video. One of my DVD instructors stresses working our smaller muscles because they’re connected to the larger ones. Today’s target, the tongue, is like that: it’s a relatively tiny muscle that’s connected to a larger one – the heart. Target TEN: Speaking life-giving words.Read More
Do you ever feel like a pressure cooker, ready to blow steam with the slightest provocation? As women, most of us face daunting daily demands on our time, energy, and emotions. As wives and mothers, the stress increases exponentially. There are days when I start off in a great mood, until the first person wakes up, and then it’s downhill from there! On those days, I am wise to pay particular attention to today’s two targets. Target SIX: Staying healthy and strong, body, mind, and spirit.Read More
Ready to tackle more targets? How are you doing so far? Are you pausing in your day to consider new ways you can please the Lord by pleasing or even bewildering your husband? If all you can do right now is recognize your struggles, that’s okay. Take what you see to God; He knows it all anyways, and He’ll transform our hearts so our actions follow. Like a lamp that shines when it’s switch is flipped on, so God’s power flows when we obey. Target FOUR: Working willingly, diligently, and profitably.Read More
Ready for more target practice? Let’s continue our look at the twelve values and characteristics our ideal but not real Proverbs 31 woman holds before us. Today’s target gets its own day because it lays the foundation for the rest of the principles we’ll glean from Proverbs 31:10-31. Will you stick this out with me? Is your marriage worth several weeks of laying our hearts before the Lord to be transformed by His truth? We’re in this together! Trust me, no one needs these scriptures more than me! Target THREE: Doing him good and not evil.Read More
Proverbs 31:10-31 is a well-known and perhaps overwhelming and potentially self-defeating passage on how to be a valuable wife. No doubt this woman was the Martha Stewart of her time! Most of us can’t possibly live up to her...Read More
Seeing me for the first time after getting home from work one day, my husband remarked, in sort of a caught-off-guard, delighted kind of way, “I really like your hair like that.” Again, at dinner, “You look so beautiful with...Read More

As I have tried to make sense of the baffling movement in America to oppress one particular group of people based on their beliefs in order to advance another based on their agenda, the Lord has shown me we have a word problem....Read More
When James and I travel just the two of us, we usually spend part of several days doing what we enjoy most – he plays golf, and I do whatever I want without anyone calling my name or needing me for anything. I may sleep late,...Read More
