Rain Makes The Flowers Grow – My Health and Anxiety Journey

By admin / June 11, 2018 /

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 /

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 /

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 /

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 /

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 /

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…

A Caring Work

By Victoria Easter Wilson / May 31, 2016 /

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 /

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…

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…

Cutting Holes In Your Roof

By Victoria Easter Wilson / May 26, 2015 /

Do you remember those guys who needed to see Jesus so badly that they CUT A HOLE IN THE ROOF OF A HOUSE. A few days later, when Jesus again entered Capernaum, the people heard that he had come home. They gathered in such large numbers that there was no room left, not even outside…
