Okay… so let’s get real. My mom is the best. When I was younger I remember limping into her room all quiet like in attempts to get a glimpse of her...

A Letter to My Child’s Mother

Dear friend, I’ve dreamed about you many times.  The kind of dreams that linger in your heart and you can’t seem to shake.   I’ve dreamed about the day you found out you were pregnant, the flood of emotions you felt from the inside out…the kind of raw emotions a woman has when she finds out…

’tis so sweet

When I first became a mom, my thought was…”I got this…” I love Jesus.  And, if I just tell my kids all the right things and point them to Jesus in every situation, they will love Him too.  It’s that simple, right?  I was treating it like a checklist… Take the kids to church on…

Dottie – a work of heart

A major focus at ETCH is that we want to do life together.  Jesus did not intend for us to live in isolation, but rather to share in each other’s joys and struggles — to encourage each other and walk each step with people who can pick us up when we fall. Because of this,…
