Welcome to my blog. I'm a wife, momma, and a change maker. Thanks for joining my journey. 

we are active!!!

we are active!!!

we are now active- our sweet baby is in the making.

we hear you Lord. your timing is perfect. your will be done. 

we will wait. we will pray. 

our prayer declarations: 

Matthew 18:5 And whoever welcomes a little child like this in my name welcomes me.

Ephesians 3:20 Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to His power that is at work in us, to Him be the glory. 

Psalm 139:13-16 Oh yes, you shaped me first inside, then out; you formed me in my mother’s womb. I thank you, High God-you're breathtaking! Body and soul, I am marvelously made! I worship in adoration – What a creation! You know me inside and out; you know every bone in my body: You know exactly how I was made, bit by bit, how I was sculpted from nothing into something. Like an open book, you watched me grow from conception to birth; all the stages of my life were spread out before you, the days of my life all prepared before I’d even lived one day. 

Jeremiah 1:4-5 Before I shaped you in the womb, I knew all about you. Before you saw the light of day, I had holy plans for you.

Proverbs 3:5-6 Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding, but in all your ways acknowledge him, and he shall direct your paths. 

Philippians 4:6-8 Don’t fret or worry. Instead of worrying, pray. Let petitions and praise shape your worries into prayers, letting God know your concerns. Before you know it, a sense of God’s wholeness, everything coming together for good, will come and settle you down. It’s wonderful what happens when Christ displaces worry at the center of your life. Summing it all up, friends, I’d say you’ll do best by filling your minds and meditating on things true, noble, reputable, authentic, compelling, gracious, -the best, not the worst; the beautiful, not the ugly; things to praise, not things to curse. 

Psalm 115:1-2 Not for our sake, God, no, not for our sake, but for your name’s sake, show your glory. Do it on account of your merciful love, do it on account of your faithful ways. 

James 1:27 Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world. 

Isaiah 1:17 ...learn to do right! Seek justice, encourage the oppressed. Defend the cause of the fatherless, plead the case of the widow. 

Psalm 68:5-6a A Father to the fatherless, a defender of widows, is God in His holy dwelling. 

Psalm 82:3 Vindicate the weak and the fatherless; do justice to the afflicted and destitute. 

Matthew 25:35-36, 40 I was hungry and you fed me, I was thirsty and you gave me a drink, I was homeless and you gave me a room, I was shivering and you gave me clothes, I was sick and you stopped to visit, I was in prison and you came to me...Then the King will say, “I’m telling the solemn truth: Whenever you did one of these things to someone overlooked or ignored, that was me – you did it to me.” 

Romans 8:15 For we have not received the spirit of bondage; but we have received the Spirit of adoption, whereby we cry, Abba, Father. 

James 1:22 Be doers of the word, and not hearers only... 

Proverbs 16:9 A man makes a plan in his heart, but God directs his path. 

1 John 4:18 There is no fear in love, but perfect love casts out fear.

Jeremiah 29:11 “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future."

Isaiah 43:5 Do not be afraid, for I am with you; I will bring your children from the east and gather you from the west. 

And the verse tattooed on my wrist: 

"So do not throw away your confidence; it will be richly rewarded. You need to persevere so that when you have done the will of God, you will receive what he has promised.  For, In just a little while, he who is coming will come and will not delay. But my righteous one will live by faith. And I take no pleasure in the one who shrinks back.

But we do not belong to those who shrink back and are destroyed, but to those who have faith and are saved.

-Hebrews 10:35-39

Pray with us will you,
