Understanding God’s Love

Psalm 127:3 (NIV) “Sons are a heritage from the LORD, children a reward from him.”

He Gives Us Real-Life Examples

Sometimes, I wonder does God give us children to understand His frustrations, unconditional love, empathy, and desire for more than we want for ourselves. I can remember my mother telling me, “I can’t wait till you have children of your own.” Of course, it wasn’t until I had children of my own; I could understand her perspective.

Reminders in the Word

When reading the word, I sometimes relate to motherhood. It is something that is a part of my identity and that I can easily relate and understand. For example, my children’s selective hearing. I will tell my daughter specific instructions, at which she will do something entirely different or my favorite, nothing at all...

7+ Fit Date Ideas for Couple’s

Love is in the air well at least that’s what the commercial said yesterday. Valentine’s isn’t our thing! Yes, we think love should be celebrated everyday.  Just like most holiday’s I appreciate the fact that there has been a National Holiday to remind people to show the one they love some extra special attention.

We’re not big on giving gifts to each other. I love cut flowers, but I have an expensive habit of buying those weekly when I go to the produce stand. I am not a big chocolate lover and hanging out with all of the couples’ of South Jersey at dinner is not my idea of romance. My husband is my best friend, and I feel like life is too short to celebrate our love with dinner and a movie. I want to make memories! I much rather invest in moments than physical gifts...

How my family went clean

clean-eat

It was like I was in a Movie….

The most amazing thing happened the other night at dinner my kids fought over the last brussel sprout did you read that correctly my kids fought over the last brussels sprout. Two years ago that would have never been the case. After a long road, my girls try new things every other week willingly. They look forward to baking new goodies to try and have mostly adopted a healthy lifestyle. Don’t get me wrong they’ll still welcome without hesitation a Happy Meal but from a recovering drive thru junkie family. Always driving around. Going places and never enjoying what was in front of them.

Got to make some changes….

About two and a half years ago I decided to try to change our processed food lifestyle into a “clean eats” lifestyle...

Self Care is Biblical

Today’s guest blogger is Michelle Hartgraves from Faith, Coffee and Miles.  She is amazing wife, mother and fitness enthusiast with a heart for God.  I am grateful for her contribution to FaithFueled Moms and her valued input on how we must take care of ourselves.  Check out her thoughts: 

Imagine what happens when you neglect to give your home the necessary attention it needs,  soon it would be in total disarray, dishes piling up, mountains of laundry needing to be done, etc. Now think about what happens to your physical home (your body, your temple) when it is neglected or your attention is elsewhere; frustration, impatience, weight gain, health problems, spiritual emptiness, and depression are all factors that come into play.

Strengthening our bodies to nurture ourselves physica...

Gluten Free Chicken Parmesean

Gluten (2)

Gluten-Free made easy

When I first went gluten free I thought, “this is going to be a chore.” Things are not going to taste good and I am going to miss a lot of my favorite meals.  I proved myself so wrong over the last few months. Now, I didn’t go gluten free because that is the cool thing to do lately. I went gluten free because I honestly was tired of my stomach hating me after every meal.  I have a wheat allergy that I have known about since I was 16 but could have cared less. I like all things whole wheat and everything has it in it. It felt like a losing battle. The digestive pains, literal pains that I had including: bloating, lethargy, headaches,sinus issues, and post nasal drip one day just made me go to the doctor...

Detox and Devotion Day 21-Support

Day 21

 “Rise up; this matter is in your hands. We will support you, so take courage and do it.” Ezra 10:4

We’ve made it! We are here! 21 days Sugar-Free and we survived there were mood swings, cravings, bad feelings and now we have achieved victory. You may have also been on a Spiritual journey the last 21 days, either your faith has become greater, you have learned to give God even the insignificant things.

Walking through the 21 days prayerfully I think not only helped me with my sugar cravings, but it leads me to seek and crave God more each day. I didn’t realize it until I was in a study for almost 2 hours the other day which I haven’t done in months. I’ve been too busy for God. I’ve let life get in the way, and I think I used sugar to ease my stress instead of turning to God.

Devotion and Detox Day 20- Living Sacrifice

Day 20

Do you have your “hallelujah” verse, that verse that jumps off the page and smacks you in the face? The verse that every time you look at it God speaks something different but equally important to you? I like to think out of all the verses in the Bible there are a few that are little love notes from our Father. They all mean something different to someone. Well Romans 12:1 is a verse that stands out to me and gave me the call to show others to honor their temple.


Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, given God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Romans 12:1


A few things popped off the pages when I read this verse...

Devotion and Detox Day 18- Blessed

Day 18

Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him. James 1:12

When you are going through something hard, it’s not easy to see that this trials will result in a blessing. I find that as people we like to set goals and then work our way to achieving. We have our sights set on the end results but resent the hard work it takes to get to the end. When you feel like this is when we need to hold on to God’s promises. That He is always conspiring for our good and there is a blessing at the end of the journey.

Sometimes there are even blessings along the way. Regardless, the last almost 21 days have been hard work physically, emotionally and especially spiritually...
