High Five

I almost didn’t write this. It has been an exhausting week in my world and I didn’t think I had the energy to think of five good things. I have hobbled around on a broken toe, worked extra days, gotten up early to meet deadlines, and yelled at my husband after leading a small group where we discussed not being a pushy broad. Then it hit me: weeks like this are exactly when I need to [Read more...]

Are You Halfway To Where You Want To Be?

The start of July marks the halfway point of the calendar year. Are you halfway to where you want to be? We often start out the year with a list of goals or resolution. After a few weeks, many are forgotten. Give it a few months and old habits are back in their comfortable spot. Are you okay with ending 2015 the same place you started? In her online course, Make Over Your Mornings, Crystal [Read more...]

My 100th Post!

As an act of obedience to a call I felt on my life, I started this blog 7 short months ago. In that time, I (hope) I have grown as a writer and maybe encouraged or challenged some of you along the way. This marks my 100th post! In celebration of this, my 100th post, I want to share my top 5 favorite blog posts. If you are new, it will give you an idea of what MrsDisciple is all about. I do hope [Read more...]

Five Favorite Things

After a tough couple of weeks at home, tough posts on the blog, and just a bunch of yucky stuff on the news (side hug, anyone?), I am ready for some coffee talk. I need something light and airy today, how about you? I am taking a page out of Crystal Stine’s book–er, uh–her blog (her book is pretty awesome, too). It’s time for Five Favorite Things! Today we are going FIVE [Read more...]

Accountability Helps You Meet Goals

After much reading and soul-searching, I started 2015 with a list of goals. Dan Diamond recommends sharing goals with friends and family to increase your chances for meeting those goals. That is why I come back month after month to share my goals. I need the accountability. At the start of each month, I list out the steps I need to take in order to reach each goal.  I selected a few to focus [Read more...]

Keep Trying to Meet Your Goals

After much reading and soul-searching, I started 2015 with a list of goals. Research reveals that about 36% of goal-setters will abandon their goals by Jan 31. In an effort to encourage us along and keep me accountable, I continue to update on how I am doing with my goals. At the start of each month, I list out the steps I need to take to reach each goal.  I selected a few to focus on [Read more...]

Say What You Need to Say

Say What You Need to Say is part of an ongoing series, Portrait of a Godly Wife. Several years ago, a repeating scene played out at our home almost every week. My husband would ask if I minded if he played tennis. Being the godly, submissive wife, I almost always said yes. While he was away I would brew and stew about it. Didn’t he realize I needed time out? Didn’t he know that I needed him [Read more...]

Survey Says

Way back in the early 2000’s, back when I first joined Facebook (what did I do with my free time before then?!), surveys were a big deal. Remember answering all kinds of random questions, posting them in your notes, and tagging friends? So fun! So when I found a survey on Flower Patch Farm Girl, I just had to play along! You know what they say about imitation and flattery. Reading…The [Read more...]
