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…

I Would Rather Pick A Facebook Fight Than Tell My Friends About Jesus

By Victoria Easter Wilson / June 23, 2015 / 0 Comments

I don’t need to describe the scene. You’ve already been there. I don’t need to describe the headline. There will always be one. The We-Interrupt-Your-Regularly-Scheduled-Programming story that gets everyone talking. The story that trends hashtags. The story that my Facebook friends on both sides of the aisle are chatting about. The blogosphere will be compelled…
