What does it look like to pack away another year? 2022 is over and so what does it look like to finish well? Some years are easier to move away from and leave behind, but that doesn't mean that God doesn't use those years that you would rather forget about. Sometimes He uses those in abundance. Today we will take a look at Philippians 3 and gain a better grasp of the main theme, which is Joy! We will dive into what it means to rejoice in the Lord, beware of people that do evil, and put no confidence in your flesh.

As we leave 2022, what are we going to leave behind and what are we going to carry with us into the next year? Our goal, as Paul tells us, is to gain Christ and hope in His resurrection. So follow along with me as we dive into Philippians 3 and Psalm 103 together!

I had it going on—or so I thought. After surviving sixty-three months of pregnancy, countless sleepless nights, and 35,000+ diapers, this former control freak encountered God’s grace. And I’m here to encourage you to do the same! I love encouraging and inspiring moms to grow deeper in their walk and relationship with our Heavenly Father.

You will be affirmed in your role as a mother as I speak of my own struggles with perfectionism and impatience and share my challenges, failures, and victories amid the ever-changing seasons of life. My honesty will surprise you, and my humor will put you at ease.

I’ve been married to my beloved, Davis, since 1986; our life has been a roller-coaster ride with God at the controls. We have seven kids and let me tell you our family loves to laugh! I enjoy playing in the dirt, eating dark chocolate, and walking on the beach. My husband and I own Apologia Educational Ministries, I’m an author and speaker—I am passionate about helping moms not only survive motherhood, but draw near to the Father and thrive in motherhood.

I’m so glad you’re here,
