This blog was previously a book review site. In the last year my life has undergone a marvelous change and I found my way back to my heavenly Father. It has occurred to me that maybe other women are looking for their way back as well. I hope that this blog can be a step in the right direction for you. You are beautiful, a one-of-a-kind creation. Live your life as God's daughter, For God's Daughters!

I went to visit this site last night and came away inspired. It reminded me that, no matter how bad things may seem, God is there watching over us and guiding us in the right direction if we will listen. Birthday Blog « Jennifer Hartz
So, it's 1:45 a.m. & I'm sitting in the living room with
my soon to be 2 yo son, Mason. Mason has
NEVER slept all night since the day he was born...not ONCE. I've Googled, read,
researched, spoken with his pediatrician and other pediatricians, tried
essential oils, warm baths with calming bath soap and adjusted his schedule so
many times that I can't even remember. This past Friday I had a minor surgical procedure done but
was told I couldn't lift anything heavy for 10 days (as the discharge nurse
eyed my 30-pound baby boy). Can I just get some back up from other moms out
there; if your baby falls or gets sick, you are NOT going to say “Well, I can't
pick you up, just dust it off and go on about your day”, are you? I didn't
think so. The meds they gave me after surgery turned me into monster
mommy/wife. I snapped off the head of every poor innocent that happened to look
me directly in the eye all day Saturday and Sunday. Plus, those same meds made
me SO …
You know, I've always wondered why this day should be called "Good" Friday. This is the day that our Savior was crucified. Jesus was the sweetest, most patient, compassionate, empathetic and humble man this world has ever seen or will ever see until He appears in the clouds to call His people home. He helped so many people, He taught so many people, He had mercy on so many people. Even today, over 2,000 years later, He still is and does these things. I know He is constantly working on teaching me. I read the stories of how Jesus healed the leper and my heart just breaks at the pure sweetness of that man named Jesus. I mean think about it, really think about it. A leper lived outside of regular society and wasn't allowed to do the normal things everyone else did. They were never touched and rarely looked at. One day, Jesus sees this leper and He touches him and makes him clean, healed ... instantly! Did you catch the part where I said Jesus TOUCHED the leper? Every ti…
Just the other day, I saw someone who tried her hardest to mess up my life several years ago. I thought I was over it, had forgiven her because, after all, I prayed for my heart to let go of the hate I felt for her. Yes, I said "HATE". I had an extreme hate for her. It's a long story, but she almost destroyed my future marriage and my life all because she was just a bored individual who had nothing better to do.
I was doing my evening Bible reading yesterday and the Word convicted me. I hadn't forgiven her so much as just quit thinking about it. I read two verses that brought her instantly to my mind.
"Rejoice in hope; be patient in affliction; be persistent in prayer"Romans 12:12
"If possible, on your part, live at peace with everyone. Friends, do not avenge yourselves; instead, leave room for His wrath. For it is written: Vengeance belongs to me; I will repay, says the Lord. But if your enemy is hungry, feed him. If he is thirsty, give him something …
