"Why Jesus die, Mama?"

I smile.

"You know. Why don't you tell me this time?"

"He wash ALL MY SIN AWAY!"

Despite being involved in this conversation several times a day, I never cease to take joy in the answer my little girl gives. Not just because she dramatically waves her hands in front of her to symbolize 'washing away'. Its not simply due to the exuberance with which she replies. And although I delight in her ability to begin to understand the foundation of our faith, its not that alone.

My joy is found in the truth of that statement - "He washed all my sins away!". No longer am I held accountable. The price is paid and I am free! So today, Good Friday, is very, very good!  I revel in the truth that through His suffering and death, I am made right with God! My debt is erased, the burden is gone. I am able to live my life full of joy, following after Him!

What mercy was revealed
What selflessness and peace
My fate was surely sealed
Until He rescued me
His pardon for my sin
His bounty for my need
From slavery and shame
I am redeemed!

My sin was worried we were going to die too after hearing about Jesus' death in Sunday school.

I love motherhood.

We're a smiling family.

I'm a covenant keeper.

I love my husband.

I am above self pity.

I am a nation builder.


Worth more than rubies.

“I am more convinced than ever that even in the midst of the mundane, burdensome, and oftentimes frustrating tasks of life allotted to me as a mother, God wants me to find his joy. He wants every single day of my life to be a celebration of his blessings, whether large or small. He wants me to celebrate life ~ the life He has given me.”

My Hubby

My Hubby
He's my bestest.


She is my compassionate, dramatic, fun to be around 6 year old. She loves to shop, get dressed up fancy and anything else that screams girly!


She is my goofy, snuggly 4 year old who loves to sing and dance and smile all day long!


She is our one year old smarty pants! She does all she can to keep up with her older sisters and to keep them in line!
