Have you purchased Kate’s ebook Letters to Grief? It’s only 99 cents on Amazon and contains powerful words of understanding and validation for the hurting. It was a delight to create some images to help support Kate’s book.
I’m so happy to be joining the #fmfparty this week as we write about the prompt, WHEN.
Link-up with us, we’d love to have you. You are welcome here.
It can be a loaded question, a vulnerable one.
- When will we get there?
- When will she change?
- When will I feel like enough?
- When will they reach out and invite me into their circle?
“When” can communicate longing. When will this end so I can feel better again?
“When” can stir up hope. When I get home I am going to sit down and read you a story as we cuddle.
What is your “when”?
- When will this book of my heart get picked up by an agent and published for the masses?
- When will we move into a new house? The one we are dreaming of. The one that is closer to town and will provide room for many to gather ’round the table.
- When will we find the youngest girl that we have been praying for all these years?
Oh how He cares about the “when”.
He answers the “when?” with Himself, with His love, today.
Today I am also linking-up with Jessica Turner for Fringe Friday as we share how we spend our #FringeHours.
When I take time for myself (usually early morning, during rest time or late at night)I enjoy reading and writing.
On this blog I share my writing and also do reviews so that you can learn about books that you might want to read.
I also enjoyplaying the piano, singing and songwriting. Just in time for Valentine’s Day I am offering you 4 free downloads from my album, Echoes of My Heart. I’d appreciate it if you’d share the love with others too. If you’d be so kind as to leave a review on Amazon that would be icing on the heart-shaped cookie.:)
The entire album is available for purchase on my blog, Amazon or iTunes. I wrote the song Completely with my hubby and I wrote the Soil and Roots poem for him, in honor of our love. I think these two tracks are especially fitting for Valentine’s Day. All proceeds between now and the end of February will go towards my daughter’s Jesus Wells project.
Have you heard of The Fringe Hours by Jessica Turner (the Mom Creative)? The book releases this coming Tuesday, February 17th. Click here to pre-order your copy today.

pg. 83 “…Kids are never going to remember the condition of your cabinets, but they will remember what their home felt like. They will remember if their mom was always cleaning, or if she was relaxed enough to abandon the dusting and go hang out on the deck. They will remember whether mom was always frustrated by “another mess” or allowed them the joy of playing with a fort left up for days in the living room.”
pg. 82 “Once I freed myself from the bondage of perfection and embraced a lifestyle that made time for my passions, I was happier in all of my pursuits and responsibilities.”
pg. 89 “Our commitments should not overrun our lives to the point that we don’t take care of ourselves. Quiet time to invest in ourselves and become restored is incredibly important.”
pg. 31 “Just because something is a good thing doesn’t mean it is good for this moment in your life.”
pg. 87 “Good enough is not about aiming lower of doing less or slacking off. It’s about knowing what’s good enough for one woman isn’t necessarily what’s good for another. And that if we’re living up to our own standards there isn’t anything more to want.”
