Change Is Hard, Jesus

Everyday we walk through life and face choices that need decisions to be made. Sometimes once we make that decision and follow through the job is done right there. We move on, go throughout our day and all is well. That process having been done made everything all better and required no second thoughts. That…

Change Is Coming I Hope You Stay Tuned

I as a new blogger have had to learn some hard lessons. My main goal was to start a blog to hopefully reach out to one other parent that may face some similar challenges to my family. So that one other mom or dad that faces raising a child with multidimensional mental illness and neurological…

Using Inevitable Wrong

There are so many times in our lives where TIME is seemingly working against us. When everything seems to be moving so fast, our list of tasks only grows with each tick of the clock. Where our limits are stretched so far beyond possibility and we are inevitably going to miss something that in the…

My Refuge In Times Of Trouble

Tonight we went to a restaurant. This was in celebration of a family birthday and we had high hopes. We left the house and piled into the truck after pre-discussing our menu option with the teenage superhero. Something we have to do anytime we leave the house otherwise it takes 45 minutes to read every…

Anger ‘D’anger

Controlling anger can be an extremely difficult action for our boy because he has trouble even identifying when it is anger he is feeling. You see he has an increasing [since the onset of puberty] inability to identify even the simplest of emotions. Even happy and sad are difficult for this teenage superhero to pinpoint…

Get Back Up Again

National Get Up Day on February 1 is an opportunity to share inspiring stories of perseverance; it’s a reminder to pick ourselves up when we’ve fallen and give it (whatever it may be) another go! February 1 marks the official end of National Skating Month (January) when rinks across the country bring communities together to…

Reflecting On History

John 13:16 “Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him.” (NIV) As we mark this day in history, we remember one of it’s greatest men. I can’t help but look back on his legacy and ponder what he stood for….

Learning To Accept

Jeremiah 29:11-13 “For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. Then you will call upon me, and I will hear you. You will seek me and find me, when you seek me with your whole heart”…

Jumping Back In

So over the holidays it was pretty crazy in the lemon house, then again I am pretty sure they are pretty crazy for all of us. In that hustle and bustle, I fell behind on posting here. As time went on my own anxieties and insecurities got the better of me, and I neglected coming…

Sometimes He Smiles

My superhero smiles. He smiles a lot. He smiles even when he isn’t comfortable or happy. Just because he has a smile does not mean he is open to your hug, your hand shake, or even sometimes your conversation. In those moments I always like to think he’s being comforted by God. That Jesus is…
