God's Provision Isn't Always What We Expect It To Be

Last year I wrote about The Beauty Of God’s Provision and in my post I shared the promise God had given me regarding our business when we first started Pelfreybilt: “I will provide. I will always provide.” We are now in our fifth year of the business, with changes galore, including Tyler quitting his full-time…

A Scarlet Letter Covered By Love

While I haven’t been able to write nearly as often as my heart longs to, this season of my life is overflowing with God’s goodness and love.  My heart is busting at the seams with gratitude for all He is doing in and through me. I am honored to be part of several amazing writing…

The Beauty Of God's Provision

When I took the leap of faith, to work full-time from home, for our business, I clung to God’s promise saying, “I will provide. I will always provide.” To me, those words meant God would always provide us with the money necessary to make ends meet. Little did I know three months ago, that God…

Making Room for Christ in Christmas

Christmas has always been my favorite holiday, yet with the increasing commercialism, I find it difficult to see Christ in Christmas at all… …Unless I make room for Him. Long ago, no one made room for Jesus in the inn, and instead He was born in a lowly manger among the “least of these”. Somehow…

When Your Dream Looks Different Than You Imagined

It’s funny how we imagine our dreams to look one way, yet they turn out looking totally different, isn’t it? I imagined that working from home would give me a set schedule with set hours. Having a set schedule would enable me to pack my hubby’s lunch, and make his morning coffee, see him off…

Shine On, Friend!

“He will yet fill your mouth with laughter and your lips with shouts of joy.” {Job 8:21} Life is full of disappointments, stress and pain, but we have a promise that amidst our deepest valleys, there is One who will fill our mouth with laughter and give us JOY from deep within! I know many…

Most Perfect Curve

While reading Ann Voskamp’s post it made me think of my husbands words most recently when I asked him how he really feels about me quitting my full-time job to pursue our business full-time. “I feel good about it! I finally get my wife back!” Those words spoke two things to me: My happiness is…

Heart of Gratitude

Over the weekend, I spent some time shopping at my favorite Resale Shop My Sister’s Closet. While paying, the cashier asked about my weekend and if I had Labor Day off. I responded, “Yes I do, and I am so grateful.” Her response surprised me, when she had an expression of surprise as she said,…

Be All There

Last week I wrote about waiting, and focused the post on my current wait for a baby.  What I didn’t mention is that, in addition to waiting for a baby, I am also waiting for God to open the doors for me to lay aside my full-time job, so I can start working full-time from…
