Success is not final

“Success is not final, failure is not fatal: it is the courage to continue that counts.”Winston Churchill
Never give up!


Courage to Love

“To love someone deeply gives you strength. Being loved by someone deeply gives you courage.”— Chinese Philosopher Lao Tzu

Stay the course when others doubt you!

There are times when you will face doubt or even doubt yourself as a parent.  Surrounded yourself with a strong support group and remember this one thing, the Lord can handle more than you.  Begin today by giving your daily battles to the Lord.  

“And Everyone  assembled here will know that the Lord rescues his people, but not with sword and spear. This is the Lord’s battle, and he will give you to us! As Goliath moved closer to attack, David quickly ran out to meet him.” 1 Sam 17:41-47 (NLT)
The first giant was delay

The second giant was discouragement

The third giant was disapproval

The fourth giant was doubt

When you face these four D’s, hold on to this promise: This is the Lord’s battle!

The point is clear—obedience will keep you close to those you love.

When Your Man Needs Space

The Peaceful Wife

When Greg and his dad transformed our living room into a master bath Greg spent years remodeling our old house – which meant, hundreds of nights of me taking care of our children by myself while he and his dad worked until midnight many nights per week after their full-time jobs. God taught me to be thankful and content during those times rather than resentful and bitter. God also taught me to appreciate that they were doing all of this because they love me and our children dearly. That was quite a sacrifice for both of them – I could bless them by appreciating their hard work and bringing them soft drinks and snacks and by telling them how thankful I was for all that they did for us.

Not all husbands need a lot of space. Some husbands want their wives to be right beside them all the time, involved in everything together. Others need some time to themselves to recharge or…
