Why We Don’t Celebrate Santa

Why We Don't Celebrate Santa - Eucharisteo.com

If you know me at all you know that most would consider me a radical. But, really, is there any other way to describe a Christ follower? I tend  to reference this scripture a lot but it’s a great one to have memorized.

Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewal of your mind, that by testing you may discern what is the will of God, what is good and acceptable and perfect. (Romans 12:2 ESV)

Do not be conformed. In other words, other people should be able to see that you, my dear, stand out from the rest. That there is something that sets you apart. Because you are set apart. Continue Reading…

Friendships When You Struggle

Friendships When You Struggle - Eucharisteo.com

This past year, which I am now naming “The Struggle,” was survivable because of the love and support of a thoughtful handful of friends. There were so many times that I would cry before them or over the phone. When I would lay my broken heart before them. They were there and they stayed there. They didn’t turn away because this was too heavy for them. So this is where I want to thank them. Though a small blog post hardly does them justice. Continue Reading…

A *Sweet* Baptism Gift

August 25, 2014

Yesterday by bestest friend in Tennessee was baptized! Yayyyyy! Welcome her to the family! I was so sad because we had to miss her lake side baptism due to my daughter having another wretched headache. Thankfully Thieves rescued her from the pain but not as fast as we had hoped. The headache came too close to when we’d have to leave for the lake. Boooooo.

Thankfully she was feeling right as rain not too long later. We still wanted to celebrate our sweet sister and her public announcement of her new life in Christ. So I did what every good friend would do. I hopped on Pinterest. After discovering this awesomely clever idea we popped the kids in Bessie, our large family van, and headed out shopping! We had candy to buy!

Outside the Box

August 13, 2014

I have found one thing that has helped immensely with my anxiety. Every morning the children and I bustle around the house. Making sure everyone is dressed and fed. We grab our Abeka Bible cards and head for Bessie, our massive van.

And we leave our little box.

We make sure to reach our destination before anybody else. And it is in the wee early hours of the morning that we get the public playground all to ourselves.

Blessings by the Cup Full

April 12, 2014

Want to bless a tired mama really quick? Get her a coffee. It’s that simple. I’ve been blessed with cup-o-joes many times, by friends and by my husband. I even received a gift card from my incredibly thoughtful mother in law when she knew I was having a rough time. My soul smiled wide when I opened that card.
