So up bright and early this morning!!!

Last night, Dan and I organized “us.” I set everything out: made the girls lunches, they set out their uniforms, I knew exactly what I had to wear, book bags perfectly placed, Dan and I already planned for who was dropping off which girl, got our calendar up and organized for the month–I even had time to sit and just be! I was ready for today!!!

Then–the littlest decided to wake up and come in to our room this morning. Boom a change in the set schedule! Here we go–15 minutes before the alarm clock goes off— my feet hit the ground and it’s time to choose  how my day was going to play out. From the tears of crying about her socks, to brushing her teeth–I have to say outloud in my head today, “I will rejoice in this day!”  

It may not be exactly what we planned and our schedules definitely get out of whack sometimes but choose to rejoice! Let’s be honest guys, this morning could have definitely gone a very different way of me panicking, yelling, rushing down the road but by simply choosing to rejoice in this day and choosing peace, I even found time to write this blog to encourage others. Make it a great day friends–Rejoice!

Just Pray…

Doesn’t matter what this life throws at you just remember Who is on your side. 

“The prayer of a righteous man is powerful and effective.ā€ James 5:16

Our Present Help

How many times do we pray asking the Lord to remove this problem or that problem? I know I do! We tend to think oh if we didn’t have this or that–life would be so much easier. But when I read the quote above, I thought, “wow, so true!” We don’t need the problem in our life to be removed every time–sometimes those same problems that bring us stress, grief or seems like the end of the world are meant to teach us something–help us grow or even somehow minister to others! 

Now I know it’s never easy as that but it is simple as that! We just tend to complicate the process instead of allowing Him to do what He does. Psalm 46:1 tells us, “God is our ever present help in times of trouble.” Hang on to those words today! Let Him help you find a way through your struggles victoriously!

Shining For Him

Fourth grade is no joke! This can be a time where most boys and girls are coming into their own personality, making their own choices on who they call friend, being tested academically, emotionally and spiritually day in and day out! 

This season has even tested me as a mom in building a relationship with my 10 year old daughter! Do I just want to tell her how to handle a situation or do I listen to the 4th grade drama and equip her for the very similar  types of drama that unfortunately show up later on in life too? Ofcourse, my natural mama bear surfaces and I want to protect her heart and tell her exactly what to do and how to do it! But will that help her in the future when I’m not around? 

After listening to countless stories this school year, my advice always seemed to come back to one statement, “Alyssa let your light shine and keep being who you are in Christ.” 

 At school Alyssa was presented with student of the month and she received the “Peace Keeper” award. They describe a peace keeper to not only be someone who is helpful to their teachers and friends; or one that chooses to keep peace and above the drama; but one who also lets their light shine in all circumstances

Our sweet girl chose to keep peace and kept being who she is! A lesson that I know personally is never easy to do at any age! 

Are you choosing to let your light shine today? Are you keeping peace in whatever situation you may be facing?  “Peacemakers who sow in peace reap a harvest of righteousness.” James 3:18

It Is Finished…(Happy Good Friday)

The cross — Jesus laying down His life for us all simply because He loves us so much! 

Because of that love– there is also healing! “By His wounds we are healed.” (Isaiah 53:5)

Whatever you may need healing from, big or small…it is  finished! 

Happy Good Friday–Sunday is coming!

Monday Worship Pulse

The intensity of our worship is directly proportional to how grateful we are for God’s goodness in our life.                      (Daniel Feliciano)

“The LORD is good to all; he has compassion on all he has made” (Psalm 145:9). 

Pray For Your Spouse


A couple weeks back IĀ shared with you all about the importance of praying for our children.Ā But have you considered the same importance over your spouse?Ā  Do you really pray forĀ them or do you pray about them?Ā  Just like with your children, you knowĀ them best!Ā  You hear aboutĀ their day, you hear aboutĀ their dreams,Ā their wishes,Ā their struggles,Ā their goals–YOU are more than equipped to go to battle onĀ their behalf.
Sure you may pray thatĀ he/she has a good day and thatĀ their meetings go well orĀ they areĀ protected to and from work–all good prayers but yourĀ spouse needs those Big and Bold prayers too.Ā  Today I challenge you to pray for yourĀ spouse (after all you more than likely prayed forĀ them to come into your life) not to changeĀ them to what you want but what they are created to do andĀ fulfill in this life.

Pray Big and Bold prayers for your Spouse.

I added a few scriptures versesĀ thatĀ I believe are helpful in getting started. Look them up and even if you don’t have words to express in prayer, just readĀ these passagesĀ over your spouse.

For Protection–Psalm 91-This entire Psalm is amazing to speak over your spouse. It asks the Lord for His protection and deliverance
Prosperity–Jeremiah 29:11 -A great verse to speak life intoĀ their future, to remember there is hope
Purpose–Romans 8:28- God works all things out for our good for those who are called according toĀ His purpose
Joy–Nehemiah 8:10Ā -the Joy of the Lord is our strength.Ā  Pray that simple prayer over your spouse.Ā  So many things happen in a day that can weigh them down, pray that they will be filled with joy
Direction–Proverbs 3:5-6-Our life verse–this verse is our favorite verse! It gives us peace that the Lord is leading and guiding our steps
Love–1 Corinthians 13:4-8–Often called the love chapter of the bible.Ā  Read it andĀ profess it over your relationship, marriage and your spouse.

I can not wait to hear how circumstances will change in your home/life.Ā  Please send me a message of how this commitment to pray for your spouseĀ Ā has helpedĀ he/she and in turn you.Ā  Blessings everyone!
