Tammy’s story and butterfly hugs
If you love the beauty and symbolism of the butterfly, this story will touch you extra close to the heart. Tammy’s story is one of encouragment, purpose, and life. Although Tammy is now in heaven, by reading and re-telling her story (and following her lead), we can – as Max Lucado puts it – help Tammy “outlive her life”.

Got a (prayer) knot in your stomach…?
If this week you have a child going to kindergarten, college, or somewhere in between – that pain you literally feel in the pit of your stomach could have great purpose. Read on…
JD’s first day of Kindergarten? “Amazing!”
“Mom! It was AMAZING! IT WAS AMAZING!!!”
All the parents were chuckling as our exuberant son ran into my arms yelling his amazement at the top of his lungs. It took me a minute to start recording on my phone – it’s the cutest little video – especially the part where our 4-year-old Jesse is trying to steal the show:)
I popped it up on YouTube for you, here’s the link. Hope you enjoy the video as much as JD enjoyed his scissors, markers, recess, and his purple crayon;)
If you’re one of the ones who prayed all those years that I would someday be a happy mother of children… thank you. Your prayers were answered.

FamilyLife and my story
It is a rare privilege to have my story told on FamilyLife with Dennis Rainey and Bob Lepine. My story aired today (Wednesday, August 15th 2012) across the nation. Thankfully, their great team of producers edited it down to make it radio friendly – I basically just dumped my heart out on the table:) Click here to listen to the broadcast. And click here if you want to know why I haven’t listened yet (as of the time I’m typing this) or to leave comments. May my story bring healing and draw people closer to God. much love – Lis
People Making a Positive Difference
I have been GREATLY inspired by the story of Australian missionaries to Haiti Barry and Rebecca McDonald. From great loss to making a great difference, this is where you can read their story…
Boys Love Silly Moms :)
Four words from my friend Tracey have changed the atmoshere in my home many times over the past few months. Click here to read my blog “Boys Love Silly Moms” for MomLife Today.
A good friend recommended a weight loss app to me called “Lose It“. And I LOVE IT!
When I think of losing weight in a healthy way, eating less calories and burning more calories always seems the most logical. This app is free and gives you a way to VERY EASILY keep track of the calories you eat PLUS a way to easily calculate the calories you burn.
My favorite part: if you have a smart phone that scans, you can scan the bar codes on foods and the calories are automatically entered! While I was grazing through Costco, I scanned everything I ate. It helped me to not overeat. (Overeating is my biggest weight loss obstacle.)
This is the link to the webpage, or you can search “lose it” on your smart phone.
I love sharing things I love with my friends!! hugs – Lisa
PS: I’ve lost 5 pounds so far. Twenty more to go…
We bond in our brokenness
Recently a friend told me a story.
The story stuck with me.
When it was time for me to write my blog for MomLife Today, my friend’s story was at the top of my mind. Read here how playing “Failure Bingo” at a MOPS meeting helped my friend realize: no mom is perfect, and that’s really okay.
A miracle inside the Aurora shooting
Please take five minutes and read what this pastor from Colorado has written about a victim named Petra and her miraculous story. I hope it touches your heart and encourages you the same way it has encouraged me.
I realized that I had hardened my heart because the pain of this tragedy is so enourmous. This article allowed me to finally grieve with hope that God is still God. And He is awesome.
with love – Lis
