Parents, STOP Comparing!

Family matters, dr. Tim Kimmel, Darcy Kimmel, Grace Based Parenting

It seems lately I’m seeing a high number of articles describing the challenges of the different ways we choose to live our lives…or ways we have to live our lives.  I used to understand this – the need to justify and convince others of the value of what we’re doing or the choices we’ve made.  […]

Grace Based Parenting

  Parenting is hard. Just being honest…and probably preaching to the choir.   I have five children ranging from college to 2nd grade. I’m a single working mom. I’m tired.   Unfortunately, I’m also fussy, frustrated, easily annoyed, and just not a fun momma a lot of the time. I can think of many day in the past […]

  Trust in the Lord with all of your heart. Proverbs 3:5   It is interesting to me that that verse isn’t “Trust in the Lord with all of your mind.”  Why is that? Why does God say heart? I looked up the meaning of heart in my concordance and it says that God uses […]

  I have spent the last several years learning to walk on the water in the midst of life’s storms.  Like Peter, I have had steps on the water and some where I’m most definitely sinking. I’ve been hanging on for dear life in the hurricane, rocking on the waves but getting my sea legs, working […]

  I’ve wanted to write for days…well, probably weeks, but life keeps getting in the way.  I wanted to be in a better place before I shared.   I wanted my blog to have a title like, “5 Steps to Parenting Perfection” or “No Regret Parenting” or “I Figured It Out!!!” But alas, I don’t have […]

  Several years ago if you’d asked me what passage in the Bible most spoke to me, I’d have said Philippians 4:6-7: “Do not be anxious about anything but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God.  And the peace of God which surpasses all understanding, will […]

It’s Not Contagious

  Things changed when my husband left…many things.  One thing I didn’t anticipate is the change in friendships.   For 18 years I was part of a couple, and although we didn’t do everything as a couple, we did do most things.  Being part of a couple meant more than just double dates.  It meant […]

  I’m very blessed to be part of a Titus 2 Bible study once a month.  I wish it were weekly.  This past week we met over dinner and discussed Philippians 4:1-9. I’m totally enjoying studying Philippians.  Great book. We were talking about rejoicing in the Lord. One of the questions was, “What are the […]

How do I live sufficient grace, Sue Birdseye, Dr. TIm Kimmel, Grace Based Parenting

  Ever had a lyric or a verse stuck in your head? There is one in my head. “But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’”  2 Corinthians 12:9 Over and over it runs through my head reminding me that God is enough. I […]

trust, school, fear, Sue Birdseye, Family Matters, Dr. Tim Kimmel, Grace Based Parenting

I had the privilege of sitting through my 7th grader’s first day. I noticed several things: His teacher rocks! He was not thrilled to be there. All 7th grade boys are alike! I haven’t sat through a full day of classes in a while…after 2 hours my mind was wandering and I was desperate for […]
