Even Though I Walk Through the Valley-originally posted on May 23, 2013 Psalms 23:1-4: The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. 2 He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. 3 He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. 4 Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no … Continue reading Throwback Thursday: Even Though I Walk Through the Valley
For awhile now, I have been wanting to start a new feature here on Getting Real: Throwback Thursdays. I thought it would be great to go back and find some of my favorite posts and “reshare” them. I know I have a hard time staying up to date on the current blogs let alone what anyone wrote before I started following them. So, I am really excited about this new feature!!!!

Ever had a period of time where you feel like your barely hanging in there, you are holding on to your faith by the tips of your fingernails? I will admit to having some discouraging thoughts lately. I recognize these thoughts are not of God, and I am working hard to fight them. It still doesn’t make it easy. Just when I think God is … Continue reading Sunday is Coming Again
I read a great blog this morning on “wilderness wandering” and it got me thinking about Lysa TerKeurst’s book What Happens When Women Walk in Faith, which got me thinking about the phases of a dream. Yes, my very own version of If You Give a Mouse A Cookie-lol. If you click on the above link, it will take you to my full review , … Continue reading Surviving the Famine

Today I sent my oldest daughter off to her last first day of high school. Yes, my baby girl is a senior. It is funny; I thought there would be tears. I thought I would be a basket case. Am I in denial? Am I purposefully trying to down play the significance of this occasion? No, I honestly believe that I am confident in the … Continue reading Ready, Set, Don’t Go
I have joined another Proverbs 31 Bible Study (once again a week late.) We are studying Lysa TerKeurst’s book Am I Messing Up MY Kids. While Lysa is one of my absolute favorite authors I was not planning on doing this study. Why? Well, honestly, parenting is NOT my forte. It is not something I feel confident in and definitely not something I feel comfortable … Continue reading This is All I Have to Give
“Every day we make choices. Then our choices make us.” – Lysa TerKeurst, “The Best Yes” Such a powerful statement packed into a few words! My question for you today is “Do our choices define who we are? Honestly, at first I was tempted to say “yes.” But, as I thought about it, I quickly realized that God is the only one that defines us; … Continue reading Every Choice Counts
As some of you may recall, a few weeks (months) back we discussed Lysa TerKeurst’s book What Happens When Women Walk in Faith and the phases of a dream. Yes, I have covered that topic to death. However, I pray you hear me out as I feel compelled to share this today because for someone of us, the time is right for us to step … Continue reading Is it Time for YOU to do Something?
