How to Defeat the Enemy

I recently wrote a post called “How to Recognize Spiritual Attack”.  If you suspect you’ve been singled out by the enemy or have a bullseye on your back, then I hope you will take the time to read it.  This post is the promised Part 2 follow-up. Many christians are not strangers to spiritual attacks. …

How to Recognize Spiritual Attack

Life is full of ups and downs and highs and lows.  There are days when everything goes right and then there are days that make us ask, “What is going on here?” I think sometimes the question isn’t about what is happening HERE, but more about what is happening around us.   I believe that there…

It is Still Raining

Last fall our area experienced what was called a 100 year flood.  It rained for days and days.  My kids looked out the windows often and reported incredulously, “It. Is. STILL. Raining!” It was really unbelievable how much water was dumped on parts of our state in a very short period of time, causing a…

The Scoreboard Doesn’t Tell the Whole Story

My middle girl started 6th grade this year and began playing basketball this season. I love basketball. My husband and I both played basketball in school, so we are thrilled to be basketball parents for as long as we have kids interested in playing. We load up the whole family for all the home games…

Scaring Away a Thief

We live in an area that has a fair amount of crime.  We always have to be mindful of thieves or things around our house will go missing. There are steps we take to deter a thief or if necessary, scare one away.  Of course our first step is to lock doors, lock our cars…

Unfinished Stories: Post-it Note #143

Recently we were having movie night at the Post house and my 7-year-old got a little concerned.  The cartoon we were watching took a turn and the main character found herself in a tight situation in a bit of trouble.  My girl grabbed me by the arm and looked into my eyes and asked, “this…

The Frozen Heart: Post-it Note #127

This was originally shared at a meeting for pastor’s wives a few weeks ago.  Although the audience was specific, it has much broader application, reaching to any person in the church.  If you’ve ever been hurt by another believer, then I think you will find it hits very close to home. The Frozen Heart How…

Running Away From Home: Post-it Note #113

Sometimes things can get a little hairy at my house.  Loud.  Messy.  Hectic.  That’s kind of the norm for me.  My 5 kiddos mixed with just living life and there are days when I really recognize how inadequate I am for the tasks on my plate.  Every once in a while, when I’m feeling overwhelmed,…

Trapping the Mouse: Post-it Note #94

A mouse is at the top of the list of things I hate. My older kids are the same way. We recently saw a mouse in the house and we all tripped over each other trying to get away. It was every Post for themselves. The trouble with a mouse is they can turn into…

Be Careful! Post-it Note #93

My mom called me a few days ago with news. She had taken a bad fall. She stepped on a rug that slipped under her feet and she was on the floor. The result was torn muscles, lots of pain and a long recovery. Sometimes it’s the simplest things that can cause great injury. Likewise,…

Camping with my Kiddo: Post-it Note #83

I had a great opportunity this weekend to spend some quality time with kid #4.  With 5 kids, it’s a rare treat to get them to myself.  But Haven and I and a friend of hers went to an overnight camp for a Mother/Daughter experience to introduce her to camp.  We stayed in a cabin,…

To Israel With Love: Post-it Note #71

Hey friends!  Here’s a guest blog from my hubby.  I hope you will read what’s on his heart! Connie Hello. This is Connie’s husband Michael. I asked my sweet wife if she would let me write a Post-It note and share about something that God has placed on my heart. She graciously agreed (I love…
