Organized Mom + Anchored in God’s Word

Organized Mom + Anchored in God's Word

I am determined to be an organized Mom who stays anchored in God’s Word in 2017. Who is with me? I have been telling myself to memorize more scripture just for ages and I need to get real about it. It is so helpful when you are facing a trial or need to minister to someone and you have memorized scripture to draw from. I also want to be a better meal planner! I just got an Instant Pot and it’s already been a huge game changer! Have you heard of it?! I put a pot roast on the table in 45 minutes tonight. {and the angels sing!!}

Little did I know the effervescent overcoming powerhouse of a 4 foot 11 inch girl, would wrangle her way into my heart forever. I always trusted God’s plan for our family, and boy, did He ever have something good for us. Over the last 4+ years I haven’t spoken publicly about this big part of our life, but now that she is officially our daughter, I can–with her elated approval–shout it from the rooftops! We’re both excited to share our story of her teenage adoption and the ways in which we can already see it turning into a beautiful story of redemption! Our God is so good y’all.
