25

Well, today I turn 25. I know I’m still young, no worries. (This isn’t going to be a sad gripe-fest. Really.) But I also know that I’m no longer in my early 20’s And my baby turns 1 in a few weeks. I suppose I am officially, undeniably an adult. I remember being in various […]

Don’t Stop Now

Don’t Stop Now

“And there came a voice out from within heaven, ‘You are My Beloved Son; in You I am well pleased.’ Immediately, the Holy Spirit from within drove Him out into the wilderness. And he stayed…forty days, being all the while tempted by Satan; and He was with wild beasts, and the angels ministered to Him […]

Do It Anyway

Do It Anyway

I couldn’t really think of anything to say today. When that happens, there is usually something that someone else has said that needs to be said again, and I should stop rambling–kind of like the whole “80-20 Rule“. (Get used to me saying redundant things like that, because I love it.) Most of you have […]

Letting Go

Letting Go

When you first decide to have a baby (or even if it was a surprise), I think we all have this lovely idea of trips to the zoo, cuddling on the couch, and still being able to get all of our normal chores done (which we couldn’t even find the time or motivation to get […]

Singin’ in the Rain

Singin’ in the Rain

Oh, it’s been one of those weeks. Baby girl is doing better, though still not enough to warrant normal life. It’s been difficult to study, and even more difficult to take her to the doctor. I have a very high respect for those parents who have to do that with their children often, for whatever […]

Lessons from Having a Sick Baby

Lessons from Having a Sick Baby

1. Even though I’m in medical school, I still panic like any other mom. I think I might panic even more because I know all of the horrible one-in-a-bagillion chance things that can go wrong or that it “could be”. No fun. No fair. 2. School isn’t that important to me. Don’t get me wrong. […]

Eclectic Me

Eclectic Me

Tomorrow I have a Bacteriology test, which means a couple of things. 1. I’m kind of stressed out. That’s normal. It’ll pass. 2. I will be carrying around 5 bottles of Germ-X, cringing every time Abby plays in the dirt, and overcooking anything I eat. I’ll pass in a few days when I finally annoy […]

A Drink in the Desert

A Drink in the Desert

Have you ever been alone with God? REALLY been alone with God. No music. No message. Just you and Him. “When they were alone, He expounded all things to His disciples.” Mark 4:34 “Our solitude with Him. Jesus does not take us alone and expound things to us all the time; He expounds things to […]

All Things Easter

All Things Easter

Being in an osteopathic medical school and attending undergrad where I did, I automatically like to think of things as “Spirit, Mind/Soul, Body” or “Spiritual, Emotional/Mental, Physical”. So why not Easter? Easter is pretty much a BIG deal. And it’s all about Life…especially the life that we can have through Jesus. (Warning: Lots of Clicking […]

Productive

Productive

If you’re one of those “go with the flow”, “glass is half-full”, “I’ll get it done tomorrow” kind of people, you may not understand this. Opposite people (like me) will understand this completely. I hate not being productive. Yes, I do my fair share of slacking off and socializing…now. Believe it or not, that was […]
