We cannot passively and calmly wait in our church buildings; we need to move from a pastoral ministry of mere conservation to a decidedly missionary pastoral ministry.

Grace is real.Today we were privileged to witness the baptism of our friends' sweet daughter. I absolutely LOVE getting to witness and celebrate the sacraments of the church with our community. They are grace made tangible. As a mom I don't know why I'm sometimes surprised at my children's propensity toward virtue. Their incredible ability to choose good even in hard situations. But then, I have to remind myself, my children are God's first. When we presented them back to him at baptism the channel of Grace was opened and every good gift was made available to them.Our responsibility toward our children is not to be perfect parents. (try, in vain, though I might) Our responsibility is simply to introduce them to HIM. Grace will draw them to Jesus. Grace will incline them to good. Grace will hold them fast. Grace will bring them home.#lifeofjoy

Real talk time. I didn't always know I'd have seven children. We honestly never had a plan. As a young starry-eyed newlywed I remember telling people "we're open to whatever The Lord gives us!" That's still a true statement. However it now has a much deeper meaning. If I had known then the sheer scope of the laundry alone, there's no way I would've casually said such things.This is the scene from my living room this morning. Clean laundry everywhere. Children dutifully sorting. One child is naked from the waist down, one has a fever. One child is running late to her championship track meet and I haven't brushed my teeth yet. It's not pretty. I am often overwhelmed by everything it takes to care for a family this size. But let me be clear, I wouldn't trade this crazy life for ANYTHING. Joy IS found in the ordinary. Joy is found in service to those I love. And Joy is even found in the chaos. It is God's gift to us. To all my fellow mamas out there, struggling in the day to day grind. Know this: joy is available to us! Receive it. Embrace it. Live it. It's yours. #lifeofjoy #anotherdayinparadise
