A few months ago God gave me the idea to pray while folding laundry. Sometimes during mindless tasks like laundry, ironically, my brain/emotions/memory go into overdrive and I end up pondering things that do not honor the future that God has for me (whys, comparison, what-ifs, self-condemnation, failures, fill-in-the-blank). My desire is that my thoughts … Continue reading Another Laundry Post: If you pray while doing laundry, you will pray without ceasing.
Laundry. My relationship with it has changed quite a bit over the years. When I was in high school, I remember asking my mama if, when she folded my clothes, if she could correctly group my clothes in the stack (pajamas together / t-shirts together/ underwear together).

I love light bulb moments…when ideas that were once so smudged and smeared, similar to the toothpaste marks plastered on my kids’ bathroom mirrors, suddenly become Windexed and transparent.

Because you didn't bother to ask. I never understood how a guy could part his lips to ask for … Continue reading Say My Name
My mama ain't no fool. She knew that if there was any hope of her getting any laundry done at the laundromat with an adolescent at her hip, she was going to have to be prepared. This was back in the day before the boom of technology... If I'm not mistaken, pagers were barely becoming … Continue reading Life Lessons at the Laundromat
For Teachers, Moms, and Moms That are Teachers- No matter what season you find yourself in, nothing you do for the Lord is ever useless.
In honor of Teacher Appreciation, how about a shout out and lesson from the BEST TEACHER OF ALL our Savior Himself!! In the midst of unfathomable tragedy Horatio Spafford penned these words...

"I ain't gonna do it!" That's what I told myself. I knew good and well how these cosmetic parties worked. They butter you all up, say all the right things, make you feel like a million bucks then they hit you with the BIG BUCK$ whammy. Before I even stepped foot inside that glamour party … Continue reading Package Deal
