Seasons of Thanksgiving

hardplaces

I am privileged to be a contributing writer over at 5 Minutes for Faith.  All through the month of November, the writers there will be sharing what we are thankful for.  Will you join us?

In my post today, I am sharing about being thankful in the hard seasons of life, and how God has revealed Himself to me through them.  Here is a little excerpt:

It’s taken me a while to admit that I am thankful for the ashes in my life.  I haven’t always seen beauty there, but the Lord is teaching me to see, with eyes wide open, the beauty that can grow out of hard places.

Lessons My Mother Taught Me @ Five Minutes For Faith

As Mother’s Day approaches, I find myself reflecting on all of the lessons I’ve learned both from my own mother as well as examples of Godly women that the Lord has placed in my life.  Although I did not grow up in a Christian home, I learned so many valuable lessons from my mother, lessons such as:

The Spotlight’s On Me!

Today I have the awesome privilege of being featured over at Christian Supermom, hosted by Rosann Cunningham, for her Super Blogger Spotlight.  I am truly honored!  I met Rosann when our paths crossed through blogging.  Over the last couple of years, I have been extremely blessed and encouraged through her blog, especially over at Unemployed Faith, as I’ve walked with my husband through unemployment.  She is a super encourager and I am so thankful God brought us together.

Will you head over to Rosann’s place to read my interview?

Christmas Traditions at Five Minutes For Faith

I love Christmas.  Growing up my family enjoyed wonderful traditions that have been passed down to my own children, things like:

  • opening pajamas on Christmas Eve
  • hiding the “good stuff” at the bottom of the stockings, buried underneath fruit and walnuts
  • making Christmas Chains, which we call “Advent Chains” today.

After I married and had children, I passed these traditions down to my own kids, and we are also making new traditions, all of which I hope my children will carry with them into their own families.

During the month of December, my writing team over at 5 Minutes for Faith will be sharing Christmas Traditions, from our home to yours!

You don’t want to miss learning how:

  • one family uses the Christmas cards they receive throughout the year.
  • a family uses Christmas carols to bless their family devotions.
  • someone serves the elderly through music.
  • one family bakes goodies filled with love.

Will you visit us during the month of December, and share your favorite traditions with us in
