Stacy Edwards, Family Matters, Grace Based Parenting, feeling not enough, God Sees You

{Originally published in 2013} I have spent a lifetime feeling as if I wasn’t enough. I’m not sure I know what “enough” looks like, but I know that I have never felt like I was there.   In my school age years, I made good grades but I wasn’t the valedictorian. I wasn’t musical or athletic […]

  As I’m writing this, it’s Thursday afternoon.   I don’t know what that means in your world but, in mine, it means that it is time to clean the toilets. Please hold the applause. On second thought, applaud your hearts out. I deserve it because those babies are sparkling.   I would love to […]

Nehemiah Mom, Grace Based parenting, Dr. Tim Kimmel, Family Matters, Mothers, Serving

Weary Mom, Grace Based parenting, Stacy Edwards, Dr. Tim Kimmel, Family matters

  It’s a  whispered plea for energy as a baby cries in the middle of the night.  It’s the weary body in need of an extra dose of grace to make it through the midnight hours. It’s a request to reveal the significance of the seemingly insignificant.  It’s a need to see the purpose behind […]
