Because Mamas Need Hope


I’ve got exciting news! Much like my opening post for this blog it is with nervous anticipation that I announce to you… My first book is in the works!  This has been a dream for me since I can remember and now the time is right. 

I want this book to be an encouragement to young moms. Because being a mama is work! Hard work.! And it is easy to get frustrated with our husbands… our kids…our homes… and our lives. We often feel drained, discontent, distracted and as if we are drowning in a  never ending list of to-do’s. We need hope! Hope found in a vision to see the importance of our role.  

The value of our mama footprint on the hearts of our children is often overlooked in the hustle and bustle of daily life. We have approximately an 18 year window to influence and shape our children. And our Enemy knows he has those same 18 years as well. 

As Christian moms, these years are a call to action. A call to do more. More than just get through the day. A call to see our children through God’s eyes and to embrace mamahood with passion in the day-in day-out, milk-spilled-on-the-floor, dirty-diapers moments of life and leave a godly impression on our young ones that will last an eternity.

This book will explore the difference between being just a mom and being a godly mom who uses her influence in daily life to point her children’s hearts towards Christ.  Mamahood is more than just proper care and feeding of their little ones. It is about shaping young hearts and leading young souls.  

I know you are limited on both time and sleep and therefore attention span. So to give you the accomplished feeling of finishing a book before its time to plan a graduation open house, this book will purposely be shorter in length. Yay!

But this will be more than just a book. You will be able to engage other mamas through the book’s Facebook page (I’ll let you know when it’s up and running) and watch fun videos to inspire and encourage you as you pursue the mamavision - all right here at PursuingMore.com.

Announcing Another Litle Girl

What a new newborn does to a person! I’m in love. *sigh* Papa and I were able to spend almost a week with this new sweet-one when she was newborn.


Introducing Little Miss Alaya Jane. Isn’t. she. just. adorable? She’s my little Peanut.
We’ve had 3 new granddaughters in the past 10 months – which makes a total of 5 little girls in 2 ½ years, and we are loving it! You can catch up on the first 4, Sweet Pea, Chickadee, Honey Bee, and Squirt, in the archives. (I'm having difficulty with linking to certain posts at the moment.)
Oh, how the grace of God is so faithful! We have been reflecting on how proud we are of how our kids have grown to be adults who love God and married spouses who follow Him too. To see them start families and train their little ones to live to “make Jesus happy” – to put it in toddler terms. This leaves this Papa and Mama so happy… and humble.
We weren’t perfect parents. We tried to be good parents, but often fell short. We are so thankful God’s grace prevails, and h…

Mamas Under The Influence

Summer, wonderful summer – when the kids are home all day, swimming, bike riding, and outdoor play fill the days. It’s the middle of summer and what better time to share a few laughs with other mamas! These days are full and also a bit exhausting… which is usually when my list grows. My list of Mama stories.
We could compile a ginormous list of stories, us Mamas.We each have our own stack and laugh together as we swap our latest … while husbands just shake their heads in amazement at the things we do under the influence of “Mommy Brain”.
Like leaving the stroller in the road after forgetting to load it into the van - and then driving away….putting the milk away in the cabinet and the cereal in the fridge…stocking up at a meat sale and forgetting it all in the trunk – all day – in August…or paying for your groceries and not realizing until 4 hours later you never brought them home.
Those just are a few of mine, I’d love to hear your stories! So take some time, sit down with an iced latte…

3 Reasons Nursery Workers Rock

After being out of town for 2 Sundays in a row, I was looking forward to being back home in “my” church with my church family again. Then I noticed the nursery schedule. It was my turn.After I had just taught Sunday school. I fought the whine welling up inside.

I had missed the fellowship and theological discussions in our adult class and now I would miss the message again... for the 3rd week in a row.
Grabbing my things, I headed back to the bright nursery room to do the job required of me. As I began to talk with the toddlers and preschoolers, I was reminded in my heart that nursery work is important work.
These are little souls who need cared for while their parents are fed from the Word. Nursery time isn’t just about keeping kids corralled; it is the first phase of ministry.The time spent with those little ones builds relationships that bring godly influence into their lives.
Once I changed my attitude, I actually enjoyed my time with those little smiling faces. We talked, snacked o…
