Enjoy a quick anecdote with tips on how to fully support your husband.
One of my favorite jobs is being the executive assistant for #TeamKEMP. Every week I find motivational quotes to share with Kevin’s team. Here are three that I really enjoyed this month:
- “People often say that motivation doesn’t last. Well, neither does bathing – that’s why we recommend it daily.” Zig Ziglar
- “Remember that failure is an event, not a person. Yesterday ended last night.” Zig Ziglar
- “If we had no winter, the spring would not be so pleasant: if we did not sometimes taste of adversity, prosperity would not be so welcome.” Josh Billings
Feeling down and out? Keep the faith!
I remember being frustrated in the previous season for a very long time. Funny that when we were suddenly lunged from that season to a new one I was immediately frustrated again. I was constantly thinking “what am I supposed to do here? I wasn’t ready to move so quickly!” Those thoughts were brief because I was quickly reminded that every step in the right direction is a step in the right direction. A mature Saint also reminded us that progression means you passed the test and I’m grateful for that.
Be mindful of how you handle each season. It is only God’s way of ensuring you can handle what He has shown you. We love harvest time but let’s not forget the preparation, planting, and pruning, that must be done to maintain our growth as well.
Be encouraged, IT IS JUST A SEASON!
Disclaimer: This blog post was inspired by and includes a social media status I posted years ago. I thought it was a great reminder to focus on faith during moments of frustration.

It was FOOTBALL SATURDAY!!! Our oldest had just scored a touchdown on the field, while the sleepy, frustrated, and hot toddlers were acting out in the bleachers. As team mom, I tried to smile and push through the tantrums but at half-time, I was fed ALL THE WAY UP. I decided to head to the car and at the park entrance gate I saw a boy sitting alone and crying. My heart melts because the boy looks like he is my oldest son’s age, with glasses and everything. Mind you, I watched several families walk past him and not acknowledge him at all.
Mother instinct kicked in, I approached him and introduced myself, but kept some distance. He told me he was lost and couldn’t find his mother. I asked if he could help me help him by telling me his name and who he is here with. Then, I…

Encouragement to remove the desire to feel guilty when everything on your list doesn’t get done. Just as God grants us grace, we should do the same for our children, husband, homeschool, and ourselves.
I don't know what it is about my anniversary that makes me feel like a new woman in love all over again. I go out of my way to look extraordinary to remind Kevin of why he chose me. Of course, I wasn't always like this but in our third year of matrimony I took … Continue reading Wife Talk: 5 Tips for a Delightful Day
This week I'm sharing encouragement and a reminder to study God's word daily. The quality of our time with him is a direct reflection of life CHRISTstyle through your fruit and holiness.
One of my favorite scriptures is 2 Timothy 1:7 which reads, "for God hath not given us the spirit of fear; but of power, and of love, and of a sound mind." It was the first scripture that I taught Bear, our oldest, and I use it in prayer daily. I truly believe that God … Continue reading Scary Mom vs. Super Mom
This week's share is a sermon called The Remnant by Pastor G. Craige Lewis. It was extremely encouraging and full of reminders of the responsibility of being God's chosen people.
There are times that I still remember the days that I prayed for the things I have now. This is not just a popular meme and quote, but it is literally the story of my life. I can recall praying sincerely, fervently, and without ceasing, for all of my favorite things including my husband, children, and even my current career as a stay at home mom.
Does God hear me when I pray? Will God answer my prayers? How do I know my prayer has been answered? Every believer has wondered these things at one time or another. I'm simply posting this blog as a reminder to myself and encouragement for every other believer out there. Know that God hears … Continue reading God, I thank you for answered prayers!
