Rain Makes The Flowers Grow – My Health and Anxiety Journey

By admin / June 11, 2018 / 1 Comment

My husband and I were enjoying a rare and treasured Saturday afternoon away as the leaves turned at the end of 2016. It took me the entire two-hour drive to our favorite city to get out the words in a faint whisper, “Ben…I think I might be depressed.” Motherhood, at the time, presented as the…

How My Gifted Lily Jade Bag Will Always Remind Me Of My Salvation

By Victoria Easter Wilson / February 21, 2017 / 0 Comments

Before this post will make sense, you need to know what a Lily Jade bag is. Quite simply, it is the most perfect bag on the planet. They are full leather, designer-quality bags, with inserts to carry all of your baby items. And they are G-O-R-G-E-O-U-S. Early on in my blogging days I started hearing…

My Goals & Word for 2017

By Victoria Easter Wilson / January 1, 2017 / 0 Comments

A New Year’s Day tradition I’ve carved out for myself is to process the goals swirling around in my head. As an ENFJ I can be overly idealistic. I get excited over leading myself and others into new territory, but I have a great tendency to bite off more than I can chew – which…

What You Need When Life Is Hard

By Victoria Easter Wilson / December 9, 2016 / 1 Comment

My goal in writing is to be ‘gut-honest’. That means I tell tough truths, hopefully in loving ways. Not because I think I’m all that and a bag of chips, but because I know the human experience is a common one and we learn from each other. In that gut-honest spirit, I need to say…

When You Feel More Like Naomi

By Victoria Easter Wilson / September 12, 2016 / 0 Comments

As a twenty-something millennial, I suffer from self-diagnosed ‘Elizabeth Bennett Syndrome’. In other words, the propensity to insert myself as the heroine of every story I read. From animated princesses to plucky schoolgirls, the adventures of admirable women have been fixtures in imagination. And, naturally, I am inclined to interchange my name synonymously with theirs.…

Moms on a Mission | Missional Motherhood by Gloria Furman

By Victoria Easter Wilson / July 6, 2016 / 0 Comments

When I found out that I was going to meet Gloria Furman at #TGCW16, my husband took great pains to remind me that Gloria and I aren’t besties. I can be forgiven! Familiar is exactly how you feel after reading one of Gloria’s books; her latest, Missional Motherhood, is no exception. (Update: Gloria did graciously spend a few moments talking…

Marveling at Hesed | Steadfast Love by Lauren Chandler

By Victoria Easter Wilson / June 27, 2016 / 0 Comments

Several months ago I received a copy of Steadfast Love by Lauren Chandler, courtesy of B&H Books & The Influence Network. I have been a woefully negligent blogger and am only just posting the review, though I couldn’t put Lauren’s book down as soon as I received it. The Chandlers are a (now) well-known couple in Christian circles. Matt Chandler…

A Caring Work

By Victoria Easter Wilson / May 31, 2016 / 1 Comment

My roles Virtual Assistant and Birth Doula are highly non-traditional, but unmistakably God-orchestrated. As a VA, I work with clients on a variety of online projects to ensure the success of their businesses: preparing blog posts, creating images, managing social media, and so on. This is a bread-and-butter job, it provides necessary supplemental income for…

Self-Discipline and My Year Of No

By Victoria Easter Wilson / January 1, 2016 / 2 Comments

The days between Christmas and New Year’s are some of my favorite. I enjoy using the time to look back, and plan forward. My husband and I rearranged our home office and, in the process, I found several tools I’d purchased over the months to help me get more done. Tools that were halfheartedly attempted…

Dull

By Victoria Easter Wilson / October 22, 2015 / 0 Comments

I’ve been feeling like a dull butter knife these days. (And, frankly, it’s not like butter knives do much damage even when they’re sharp.) Maybe it’s been my stint as a for realsies stay-at-home-mom. Or being pregnant. Or both. (Probably both.) But I just feel like I’ve lost my zip. I don’t think as clearly…
