    Dating for marriage

    I feel like this subject might cause some controversy, but remember this is my view and I am not trying to force it on anyone.  When I first moved to the USA, I could not help but notice that most families give an age limit for when kids are allowed to date. Allow me to explain what I am talking about and what I am not talking about. When I refer to dating, I am referring to being in a relationship dating and merely going out as a friend.  I don’t know if this is correct or not, however, I would like to share with you guys a different perspective. …

    YOUR HUSBAND’S CROWN

    When I was younger, I knew a couple that whenever the wife got the chance, she would speak bad things about her husband. If the opportunity didn’t arise on its own, it was like she created an opportunity to do so. I remember thinking to myself that I would never do that. I didn’t want to be like that; however, when I started to date my husband, I began to realize how easy it was to do the same thing. It is very easy to speak bad things about someone else so that you can make yourself look “better.” However, when you speak bad things especially about your spouse, you…

    Personality Types

    Train them in the way that THEY should go On Mondays, my sisters in law and I are getting together for a Bible Study. Recently we have been watching one of Karen Stubbs from Birds on a Wire Bible Study. One of the lessons that we went through is in regards to our children personalities and learning how to guide them individually. I want to share the fantastic things I have learned from them here with you. Train up a child in the way he should go, Moreover, when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6 One of the things that Karen Stubbs points it out…

    Declan’s dedication

    Last Sunday may 13th 2018 we publicly dedicated Declan to the Lord. Dedication doesn’t promise me that Declan will follow Christ for the rest of his life. But it means that I will be diligent about teaching Declan about the word of God. Declan’s dedication didn’t start on Sunday but started way before he was even born in fact way before I was even pregnant with him. I say started because I believe that we have to dedicate ourselves and our children to the Lord daily. Before I got pregnant with Declan, I had a miscarriage. During that pregnancy, I prayed that God would use me and the pregnancy for…

    Happy Mother’s Day

    As a mom, it is so easy to feel the mom guilt. No matter what I do I feel guilty, and I feel like I am not doing enough. Declan was only a couple of days old when the mom guilt decided to visit me, and she comes back way more often than I would like to admit. It is a feeling of inadequacy. However, as we approach mothers day, I have been reflecting on what it means to be a mom. I don’t spend my days thinking about all that my mom did wrong when raising me, so I figured my children wouldn’t do it either. Therefore, I have…

    A love story to remember

    I want to share with you about one of my favorite topics, my husband. I can talk about this amazing man for hours. So I wanted to share with you how I met him. In 2011 I went to a Bible institute called Word of Life in Pottersville, New York. The year before I went there my sister attended that school, and when it was my turn, my sister warned me: If I did not find the one (my prince charm) before Christmas, I would not find him there. Word of Life is known for their matching skills. Some people call it the bridal institute. No joke if you want…

    Churchgoer or church builder?

    Recently I have been very convicted about something. Yes, you know what it is. Am I a churchgoer or a church builder? If you start regularly attending church, you are going to notice something; most people that are serving in the church, serve in more than one ministry. Why is that? Ok, so you might be thinking that is a good thing, but in reality, it isn’t. If everyone in our church served in a small way, there would be no ministry left unattended, but instead, we are putting all the weight on a tiny percentage of our church family. When I started thinking about this, God began to put…

    Beauty out of ashes

    It was about two years ago that my husband and I first found out we were pregnant with our first baby. Everything was going perfect, two of my sister in law was also expecting, so I was so excited for our babies to grow together. I remember being so excited and already making plans for this little baby that was coming into our lives to make things even more complete. I remember praying giving this baby’s life to the Lord and ultimately trusting that God was going to take care of this beautiful baby and me. However, God broke my trust. At twelve weeks I started cramping and bleeding I…
