I'm a redeemed child of God and the momma to four vivacious daughters. I'm passionate about finding hidden blessings in the trials of life, living it out in an honest and open way, while encouraging those around me to believe in better.

the lord looks at their hearts

Join me this month as I share my thoughts on why it’s so very important to know who your children are. God’s created them individually unique and I believe it’s our responsibility as parents to dig deep into understanding their hearts and uniqueness.

And if you haven’t been to the new Mothers of Daughters site yet, I encourage you to browse through the beautiful encouragement and timeless truths so important in raising godly women in today’s world.

when you want to give up!

Have you ever had the desire to crawl under the kitchen table, waving a white flag of surrender? Even just little? Just an itty-bitty desire? Seems in my world lately, it’s become a downright fantasy!

Join me over at Hope For the Weary Mom to find out how I manage to get out from under the table and put my flag away.

hope for when they’re older …

Can I admit I secretly enjoyed having her in a “bubble” where I didn’t have to worry about a big-ol-world eating her up out there??

Cuz now she has friends, she’s going out, her curfew is 12:00 {yikes!}, and this weary momma is worrying!!

Join me at Hope For the Weary Mom today as I share a few thoughts on the weariness of parenting older children.

dear weary mom, he sees you!

Dear invisible weary mom who isn’t all that invisible — I’m warrioring along side of you.

I know how you feel because I too, feel invisible. My own life lost in the weariness of raising children.

Join me at Hope For the Weary Mom as I share my thoughts today.

grace hoarder …

Hello, my name is Tracie and I’m a grace hoarder.

I sometimes wonder if there’s something wrong with me. Is it possible to take advantage of, or take grace for granted? Join me over at my friend Rivera’s place as I share my thoughts.

OH! and she’s also giving away a copy of 31 Days of Forgiveness!
