Praying for…Trouble? – By Contributor Mama Kathrine

When you pray, you don’t normally expect to get a bad head cold. It’s not usually the way to detect answers from our Heavenly Father. But maybe sometimes it is? I’ve been thinking a lot about the new Disney movie, “Moana,” especially since we’ve watched it for our family movie night five weeks in a row…! One part that catches me is when the heroine, Moana, realizes she needs major...

Become as Child: The Magnifying Power of Christ – By Contributor Mama Emily Perkes

Through my recent research I have had this idea of “magnifying our efforts through Christ” on my mind. I was taught this principle again in the most unlikely circumstances: It was a really, really hard morning. My patience was gone before I woke up and a lot of stress was weighing me very low to the ground. Everything was a battle–full on battle–with my kids and I knew it...

Identity is like your fingerprint and like a snowflake; it’s what makes you different from anyone else.  The individuality and distinctiveness that separates...

Our Divine Identity, Part 1: Lost again: the search for unchanging identity – By Contributor Mama Wendy

So once again I lost myself. Not in the good way, the scriptural way, “those who lose themselves for my sake” way. This was in the “Who am I?” and “What am I doing here?” way. I still knew my name (sometimes) and the routines of my day (except days I was drowning totally in the never ending to-do list). What I had lost was the all-important why, my divine mission, the purpose-driven me. Kind of...
