His Encouragement: Ephesians 5:19

I love music, and I especially love singing hymns. Music is so powerful. It can influence our mood for good or for ill, which is why I love beautiful music, especially music that praises the Lord. So if you are exhausted, emotionally drained, feeling down, put on some beautiful music and praise the Lord.

How to cluster pump with an example schedule

Steps 1-4: Take Care of Your Health

The first four steps to increase your milk supply all have to do with caring for your health. Yes, Mama, I know it can be very hard to tend to your own needs when you have a new baby, possibly older children, and everything else in your hectic life. I understand!

His Encouragement: Romans 8:31

His Encouragement: Romans 8:31

Today’s verse is Romans 8:31, which is probably familiar to many of us. Written by the apostle Paul, its words have given comfort and strength to untold numbers of people through the centuries. “If God is for us, who can ever be against us?” Now that I have two little ones, I find myself seeing this verse through different eyes… parental eyes. As a parent, we watch over our children carefully and lovingly. We do our best to protect them from harm.
