Self Focused

Am I selfish? I think about me and my responsibilities all the time. My prayers are generally self centered also. I believe that is what happens when you go through health issues or a crisis. It takes all your focus just to survive. Quite honestly, there is no shame in it. The Bible says to... Continue Reading →

Letting Go

One of my yearly Summer projects is going through my kid's rooms to remove the things they've outgrown. Last Summer, there were items my daughter was ready to give away that I wasn't ready to part with. One was a doll and doll bed. She's coming to the age where she's ready to give up...

The Homeschool Option

Parents are now thinking about the 2020/2021 school year. It is a huge decision. We love our children. We are willing to sacrifice for their safety and our peace of mind. One option is Homeschool. I hope to answer some of your questions concerning homeschooling. Our story: In 1995 I was looking at the school... Continue Reading →

This is Just a Test

Life is sometimes so difficult that you feel like you are being put through a test. It's like you are in a tunnel of trials. Although one crisis gets cleared up  another crazy circumstance comes your way. When will there be light at the end of this tunnel? I experienced my own crazy moments which... Continue Reading →

Bug Off

The last couple of months we have been "Safe at Home." But this last month I have not felt safe at home. Remember all that rain we had at the beginning of all this? It was nice. It kept us California girls at home, inside, where we were supposed to be. With all that rain... Continue Reading →

Have No Fear

I feel like we've lived out a horror movie these last couple of months. It was more like a jump scare.

If that doesn't define the last couple... Continue Reading →

"Ads must not contain content that exploits crises or controversial political or social issues for commercial purposes." Obviously, if you have read My Heart's Cry blogs, they do not exploit crises at all. My blogs focus... Continue Reading →

Peace at Last

Through this crisis my prayers have been motivated by my urgent needs and intense emotions. Today I woke up feeling peaceful! It was such a nice change. When we go through a crisis, our relationship with God changes to what is needed for the moment. But when the crisis is over, the relationship needs to... Continue Reading →

I Want it to be Over

I don't know about you, but I'm so done thinking about this mess. I'm done watching the daily numbers go up. I'm tired of trying to wear something on my face that fogs up my glasses when I go shopping. I'm tired of cooking every meal at home. I'm tired of trying to find a quiet place to write when conference calls for work and school video conferencing are going on at the same time in different rooms. So today I put on Christian worship music, using my earbuds to block out all the other conversations.
