We are Expecting Again!!! Also, Pregnancy Announcement Ideas We Didn’t Use

By Victoria Easter Wilson / April 21, 2015 /

That we feel the need to make grand announcements heralding our pregnancies is, I have to say, a bit amusing. You’re growing a human! An egg and a sperm collided on exactly right day and this little microscopic organism did exactly the right things at exactly the right time to sustain life. A pregnancy is…

Currently, my husband is months away from graduating seminary and we do believe the Lord is calling him to the pastorate. With our ministry “training wheels” about to come off, my awareness of pastor’s wives…

A Blogger Without A Blog

By Victoria Easter Wilson / April 10, 2015 /

I felt sick to my stomach. Almost like I got punched right in the gut. It’s the feeling you get when you know something really bad is about to happen. My blog was down. Alright, alright. I understand this predicament isn’t actually the end of the world. And it’s probably not even relatable to most…

Stop Asking Her When She's Going To Have A Baby

By Victoria Easter Wilson / March 25, 2015 /

It happened. A pause in the conversation. A lull in which someone thought it would be a wonderful time to direct her attention toward the newlywed in the group and ask, “So, when do you think you two will be having a baby?” I could write a book. That question, “So when are you two…

The Love Of God

By Victoria Easter Wilson / March 23, 2015 /

We sang this hymn at church on Sunday. The words melted my writer’s heart, especially the last line. The Love of God | Frederick M. Lehman The love of God is greater far Than tongue or pen can ever tell; It goes beyond the highest star, And reaches to the lowest hell; The guilty pair, bowed…

What It's Like To Be A Super Christian

By Victoria Easter Wilson / March 20, 2015 /

Growing up a pastor’s daughter, marrying the pastor’s son, and well on my way to becoming a pastor’s wife, people often assume that I’m a super Christian. Which, of course, I am. I’m blessed to be a super Christian. When my eyes pop open in the morning, the first thing I see is our “This…

Don't Stress, Just Write // A (slight) Blogging Change Of Plan

By Victoria Easter Wilson / March 10, 2015 /

A portion of my 2015 goals read “pursue a few opportunities that will allow me to compensate my time online.” I have been pursuing such opportunities. And it’s been totally stressing me out. Building a blog that attracts brands. Applying to ad networks. Signing up for affiliate programs, and trying to include affiliate links without…

We Like Kids, As Long As They Look Like Baby Gap Models

By Victoria Easter Wilson / February 28, 2015 /

In my fourteen months as a mother, I’ve observed that we, a society, generally don’t expect kids to act like kids. In other words – we like babies, but only if they look like Baby Gap models. Ideally, we want our babies to wear pin-able outfits, be immaculately clean, to only say cute things at…

Okay, Fine. So Maybe I Can Be A Morning Person

By Victoria Easter Wilson / February 24, 2015 /

Historically, I’ve taken a bit of pride in the fact that I’m not a morning person. You know morning people. The ones that wake up at 5am with sick, Cinderella-esque glee. Pretty sure that bluebirds bring them a cup coffee. “Good morning, Darling! Lovely to see you looking so chipper!” Yeah. Those people. I’ve always been…
