His Peace

His PEACE is BETTER than answers! This is the only picture I have left from a small Bible that went every where with me in my purse for 12 years. My heart was crushed two years ago when I left it on a flight and never was able to recover it. I just came across…

Favorite Healthy Snack

Who else needs help getting your family to eat more fruits and veggies?! This time I am sharing a snack time recipe. Our “lovers of all things sugar” kiddos were super hesitate about the color at first. Took some bribing not going to lie. BUT they all agreed it taste just as yummy as a…

Stop, Pop, and Pray!

“Kind words are like honey–sweet to the soul and healthy for the body.” Proverbs 16:24 BASEBALL MOM TIP OF THE DAY: Stop, pop and pray! You remember that saying from when you were little, “If you can’t say anything nice don’t say anything at all?” When it’s one of those games and you’re struggling to…

Watchful

“Devote yourself to prayer, being watchful and thankful.” Colossians 4:2   I shared Col. 4:2 with you on Sunday and talked about what the word devote meant.

5 Ways to Pray Through the Busy Seasons

  DEVOTE: Give ALL or a LARGE part of one’s TIME or resources. If you were to ask me yesterday if I was devoted to prayer I would’ve said with excitement, “YES!!!” But, before I shared this scripture with you I decided to dig into what the word DEVOTE really means. My balloon deflated just…

Eternity Above Now

Eternity Above Now came from a season of my life that had me feeling overwhelmed with keeping up with expectations I put on myself. We had just had our third child and my hands were simply too full to keep up with the perfect little world I tried so hard to create. I’m not sure…

Game Changer

The countdown to baseball season has begun!! It’s no secret it’s my favorite time of year. I began this journey almost two decades ago as a wife learning to pray her way through her husband’s professional baseball career. I shared a few years ago how I learned to pray for Brian while he was still…

Intentional Prayer

At the young age of 20, I married Brian, the love of my life, who happened to be a professional baseball player. That may sound much lie a real life fairytale, but what many do not know is the road to the big leagues is nothing close to glamorous. The endless traveling and pressure to keep your job is hard to say the least, not to mention the small salary you earn during your minor league journey makes many have to walk away from their dream.

Whatever you do….

Whatever you do….   It was an easy decision for us to choose Colossians 3:23 for YPIP. It was the scripture my husband would write on a card and place it on the inside of his hat when he was playing pro-baseball. Before he would pitch in any game it would remind him WHO got…

Chain Reaction

  My husband, Sean, was called up to the big leagues for the very first time in May 2009. We weren’t yet married but living together. Sean came from a religious upbringing, me, not so much.  I always believed in God and Jesus, but that was the extent of my Christian life. Within the first…
