Blessed With Burden


Hey God, It's going good. You continue to freakishly bless me. I don't have to tell you that I'm tired. Like really tired. Like fall in bed exhausted and wake up fatigued. It's been a long haul. So much more complicated than I could have ever imagined. I ask myself if I'm making it more … Continue reading Blessed With Burden

If I had known would I have still done this?


God started me down a arduous journey two years ago. I was naive enough to think it might just be a long run. My runner's head thought I would just push through a few more rough miles on some unknown terrain but I could do that pretty easy. However, the conviction God put before broke … Continue reading If I had known would I have still done this?

Please don’t tell me to stand still


I didn't wake up very rested this morning. Which usually means I was doing battle in my head all night. And because of a certain word tattoed on my mind's eye this morning I think I was wrestling with God, *sigh again. STAND This is one of the worst things in the world you can … Continue reading Please don’t tell me to stand still

This Haunts Me


I can't tell you how much it haunts me to get a phone call like I did tonight. It's almost becoming too much for my heart to answer this question the same way. "Carissa, I have someone here that needs a place to stay. Are you open yet? Do you know anyone who has openings?" … Continue reading This Haunts Me

Coming From Dirt and Red Kites: A Confession


I'm not sure why I'm surprised when I call out to God and He answers so poignantly. It has to be a reflection of how little faith I still have. In one breath I pronounce He can move mountains. But in my mind, I think "but maybe not for me, maybe not now, maybe not … Continue reading Coming From Dirt and Red Kites: A Confession

I have a HUGE announcement coming very soon!


I have a HUGE annoucement coming very soon! Well, kinda. It's just all the cool kids on twitter were announcing left and right this week their "HUGE" announcements. And I felt left out. So I decided to try out the phrase myself. I have to say, I really liked how it felt to say it. … Continue reading I have a HUGE announcement coming very soon!

My Life As An Etch A Sketch


Have you ever seen that movie "Yes Man" with Jim Carrey?¬† It's about this¬† guy who challenges himself to say "yes" to everything for an entire year. If you think about it, the story line is very similar to "Bruce Almighty" where Jim Carrey takes over for God and answers "yes" to everyone's prayer requests. … Continue reading My Life As An Etch A Sketch

Mom, how do you spell q,r,s?


Today was suppose to be a maternity home work day. I had planned to make 1000 phone calls, send 100o emails, and spend a hour in prayer for God to reveal who He would like to be the board of directors. However, Child #1's bus was late, which made taking Child #3 late for school, … Continue reading Mom, how do you spell q,r,s?
