Before God and These Witnesses

The days leading up to it were crazy. At one point I said to Tim, "This whole thing is reminding me why I wanted to elope." January 13th came and my stomach was in knots. My husband told me it was just my sympathy nerves, but I think there was also a fear that something... Continue Reading →

Five Years Later

Everyone has "are you kidding me?" moments with their parents. One of mine is when my mother told me that she and my father were actively trying to stop me from marrying my husband. Defiance wasn't an option in my childhood home. The severity of consequences for even the smallest infraction left me with a... Continue Reading →

Perfect Timing

While my pregnancy was a planned pregnancy, it was still a shock to me. I just figured it wouldn't happen when it did, and while it's still overwhelming at times, it's become just another one of those times in my life where I can see how perfect God's plans are when we submit to his...

We're alike in all the things and dissimilar in everything else. It's a crazy balancing act that must have... Continue Reading →

“I am cold.”

And she wept and was comforted "I am frightened." "I'll protect you." And he shielded her from their blows "I am lost." "I... Continue Reading →

Odd Forms of Romance

My husband is not poetic. He’s sincerely romantic, by that I mean he buys flowers, lights candles, and takes me on impromptu date nights. His sincerity is invaluable to me. What I’m trying to say is that he doesn’t SAY romantic things. Usually, it’s just, “I love you” or “I love you more than anything”.... Continue Reading →
