Before anyone starts putting us on a pedestal thinking our kids are perfect here (Ha!), I just want to take a minute to share this slice of reality with you here.


Oh yes, that would be my stubborn toddler throwing a silent “I’m going to disobediently cover myself in dirt while laying here on the church floor because you told me ‘no’ and I refuse to accept that choice” tantrum.

So in case you’re curious? Boundary testing happens on both sides of the ocean. 😉

Among all ages. 😉

And through the grace of God, we Stateside and we Missionary parents will keep plugging away at well-rounded, boundary-respecting little contributions to our world. =)

Happy Parenting. 😉


Have you ever thought that the all-sufficient Savior has promised those who walk in blind faith more than our minds can ever comprehend? That the only True Savior renews our minds, even when we feel most useless toward His Kingdom work? The Lord of all dares to touch our hearts, even as we stumble to find obedience. Oh how this soul wishes we Christians would embrace His Truth! And that the world would be different because of obedient hearts. Lord, change me. Lord, change us. All for Your glory. ---------- I am a Jesus-follower, a Homemaker, a Wife of the best man EVER, a Mom of 4 wonderful girls, a missionary in Africa, a Friend, an Encourager, a Seeker of integrity who is unsatisfied with a mediocre walk in Christ, and Blessed beyond any words that I could ever express. Thanks for being interested in my little slice of the world.

  1. Love you and you honesty. It is so eye opening to see the disobedience through chrildren actions. They are such a picture of our inward sin and disobedience towards the Father at times. I love and hate teaching little ones sometimes because they often teach us and can be hard!

    1. Hehe. So true! How they wear the very sins on their sleeves that we try to hide in our own rebellious hearts. Ha! But what a Gracious Father who takes every single one of our stubborn selves and offers to make something beautiful out of our lives that honors His Goodness. What a Great, Great Father indeed!
