About Me

Well, I feel like this is where I am supposed to tell you what my favorite drink is and what I enjoy doing on the weekends. I will tell you all about my dreamy life and make you realize just how much you wish you could be me.

Haha. hahahhahaha.

Let’s be honest and start with some facts. My name is Becky Thompson. I am 27 years old, and I am married to my best friend, Jared. We have been married for 8 years, and if you’re quick with math… that means we were married young.

My sweet husband is a man of strong convictions. He works diligently at everything he sets his hands to accomplish. He is a volunteer firefighter in our small community, and he makes a full-time living as an oilfield pipeline welder. I am blessed he works hard so that I can stay at home with our three sweeties. Pie is four, Bug is three, and our littlest Love was born in August of 2014. NO. Those are not their real names, but would you give all the details of your children’s lives on the internet? I certainly hope not. (Also, here is an old picture of us.)

That’s us a few years ago. It’s time for new pictures. But I’m busy, so we’ll get to that later. More facts. I live in a small town in NW Oklahoma. I was born and raised in Oklahoma City, and the first time I visited my husband’s small hometown, I apologized to a tree.

This is a true story. But the short version is that I was sad the tree was all alone on a dirt road. I don’t like for anyone to feel all alone. (Apparently, that includes trees. Weird.)

My current job is mommy. I wipe noses and booties all day long and wear other people’s food on my clothing. I have discovered through this blogging adventure that my sweet children give me beautiful glimpses into the Father’s love. Through them, I experience and share God’s unconditional, unmerited, unlimited grace and love for me. I hope to share that with you here. (Oh and in my book set to release in Spring of 2016! I just signed a two book deal with Waterbrook Multnomah a division of Random House!)

I am the least organized person that I know. If you are looking for organization tips – you clicked the wrong Pinterest link. I like to craft, and I love to create. My house is full of DIY projects, and should I ever find the time, I will write about them for you.

I dive-in to everything that I begin with both feet… But I have an attention span of about 6 weeks. Ask my best friend. I ate only non-processed foods for a whole month! That was tough, and I’m glad I’m not doing that anymore. I enjoy Poptarts. I moved on quickly to something else…

Really, my only interest that is steadfast is my love and passion for Jesus. He is real, folks. Everything is but a vapor, but the love and truth of Christ remains. In the words of my sweet Pie, “You might not know Him, but He knows you – and He loves you very much.”

I could go on, but you’ll just have to read through the blog to get the juicy stuff about my life. I promise to strive to always be transparent. I hope that when browsing you think to yourself, “I bet this lady’s living room is as messy as mine.” Because we are all the same… Children of the Most-High God, beautifully and wonderfully made, created by the King of Kings, loved by the Lord of Lords, precious, powerful, His!

So… Thanks for stopping by, and don’t forget to like this page on Facebook so you can get all of my updates delivered right to your newsfeed. I try to stay connected to my readers through social media… and I post on Facebook daily. I hope to see you there and hear from you soon!

Just found your site and love! My husband is making fun of me because he is also from NW OK and I asked him if he knew a Becky Thompson. He looked at me like silly city girl just because we’re both from that area doesn’t mean we know each other!! HaHa!

Scissortail SILK - September 25, 2013 - 4:21 pm

That’s so great, Amy! Thanks for stopping by! Don’t forget to like the facebook page so you can get updates on new posts! and I bet your husband knows my husband. This city-girl transplant would have probably asked the same thing! I am originally from Oklahoma City myself. Don’t be a stranger! Thanks again for taking the time to comment and read!

Elena - September 27, 2013 - 1:04 pm

I also just found your site through the five minute friday and I LOVE it! You are not only a good writer, but also have good things to say. Your post about your son asking strangers if they know Jesus made me tear up. Thank you for letting God use you so transparently. I’m adding your site to my favorite blogs list. Can’t wait to read more!

Lori (Reichle) Dillon - October 22, 2013 - 7:32 pm

I just discovered you today with ‘Welder’s Wife’so I decided to check out your ‘About Me’ I was not surprised at all when I came to the line that read, “Really, my only interest that is steadfast is my love and passion for Jesus…”
Funny how He can shine in someone even before they have mentioned His name.

Can’t wait to read more!


Scissortail SILK - October 22, 2013 - 10:01 pm

So glad you found your way here, Lori! Thank you for your sweet words!

Laurie Wright - November 29, 2013 - 9:19 am

I stumbled upon your blog with a google search on Christmas tree photography. What a sweet treat. I was snapping photos of family at Thanksgiving last night and really struggling getting my rambunctious grand babies to be still long enough to get some soft white Christmas lights in the photo. I am just an amateur-wanna-go-pro, and I have so so much to learn. Your simple straight forward tips are great. If all I ever accomplish is to capture their beautiful sweet faces I will be a huge success! Thank you for sharing. God certainly has a way of giving us what we need, exactly when we need it. Have a blessed holiday and year.

Karlene - December 2, 2013 - 9:50 pm

I love your writings! I can truly connect to them! I found your blog through a link on Facebook of your ‘The Welder’s Wife’ article and it grabbed me. My husband was in the oilfield in Wyoming for 8 years and it made me so proud to see the hard work he’d put in but it also broke my heart to see the bags under his eyes after pulling a 20hr shift! I also do some photography for more of hobby or more of just snapping some of my little ones. We just moved to Oklahoma in July and am still adjusting to the life here! Thanks so much and look forward to following your blog :D


Matthew 5:16

Scissortail SILK - December 2, 2013 - 11:50 pm

Hi Karlene! So glad you found your way here. Welcome to Oklahoma! I have spent my entire life here, and one thing you can never adjust to is the weather. If you don’t like it, wait five minutes and it will change. It is the definition of unpredictable. The people, however… the people here are wonderful. I hope you have met some wonderful ones so far! Thanks for all of your kind words and encouragement. It is wonderful to feel “heard” in all of my ramblings. Thanks again for stopping by! Don’t be a stranger!


Scissortail SILK - December 2, 2013 - 11:55 pm

Hi, Laurie! Thanks for taking the time to send me this message. SO glad you found your way here. God loves us enough to care about our details, huh? I love it. Thanks for stopping by! I hope you won’t be a stranger. Have a blessed Christmas as well!


Laci Svoboda - December 3, 2013 - 8:12 am

Just found your site and live what I have read so far! I can relate to your stories!

Scissortail SILK - December 3, 2013 - 8:48 am

Hi, Laci! Thanks for reading and taking a minute to send me this sweet message! It is encouraging that you find my stories relatable! That has always been my goal. Don’t be a stranger!


Robert Hand - January 27, 2014 - 4:18 pm

Hi, Becky! I just happened onto your site and wanted to thank you for what you share. As a senior citizen, I can see so much value in your advice to folks in your age group, and as a 69 year-old, I can definitely advise the young ones to heed your wisdom. It’s a blessing to see such a lovely young woman with an absolutely beautiful spirit, and such a joy to see her reaching out to others. May our loving L-rd watch over and bless you, your fine young husband, and those beautiful children!

morgan, mother of 3yr old twins. - January 27, 2014 - 10:10 pm

Such beautiful words you have shared with us!! Thank you, seriously from the bottom of my heart. I will be following.

Meghan - January 28, 2014 - 7:30 am

First and foremost, thank you for your honesty. I couldn’t be more thrilled that I stumbled upon your blog. This brought many people in my family to tears. Tears of joy! This came at a time in my husband and I’s lives that really needed to hear what you had to say. We thank you for that. I tell my family all the time that I should write a book about all the things no tells you before you embark on the journey to be married and have children. You put into words what countless people feel everyday. And your photography is stunning!!!

Sarena - January 28, 2014 - 6:30 pm

As an 18 year old girl, i really enjoy reading women’s blogs, of any age. I respect their wisdom, their experiences, and advice. I thoroughly have enjoyed reading several of your posts and will definitely be back to read more. I just wanted to thank you for your genuine posts….they are refreshing and I am not even married nor do i have children, yet. Thanks for sharing, keep sharing!

gracedbyjudah - January 28, 2014 - 11:13 pm

I found your page through a facebook post–love it and love how encouraging and real it is! Feel free to send any encouraging stories our way to add to our gracedbyjudah blog.

Julie - January 28, 2014 - 11:54 pm

Just stumbled across your blog and love it. You and your family are just the cutest thing ever and seem so real and down to earth. I love the way you put things and what you have to say!

Thanks for sharing :)


Julie - January 30, 2014 - 12:57 am

I stumbled upon your blog page tonight via a Facebook share in one of my Mommy groups. And man did your blog Before you were Mommy really hit home!! I so needed this, especially now. You are an amazing writer, and you have really opened my eyes. (I’ve read several more of your blogs tonight.) So glad I found you.

Stephanie Harrison - January 30, 2014 - 10:50 am

I just found your site via a facebook post, I love it. Your recent post about being a wife first brought me to tears. I guess I didn’t realized someone else on the face of this planet knew what it felt like to be an overworked stay at home mom with someone else’s food on their clothes who hasn’t seen 5 minutes alone since their 3 year old daughter was born. I appreciate your transparency and your steadfast love for Christ! I’m a new follower! Blessings to you and your sweet family.

Debbie - January 30, 2014 - 10:52 am

I agree with the other grandma on here! Ioved reading blogs of Christians who are willing to be transparent! Keep up the good work!
Our passion for Jesus is manifested in our desire to see marriages succeed! So really enjoyed your blog, Before you were mommy!

Debbie - January 30, 2014 - 10:53 am

Sorry for the typo…iPhone is lacking in common sense! Lol

Beth - January 30, 2014 - 2:20 pm

I love your spunk. My friend had shared a link of one of your posts. I enjoyed it very much. Thank you for spreading the word of Jesus Christ. I love your photos and your creative ideas. I look forward to seeing the newsfeeds about your baby number three. I myself have four and love them more than life itself. Congratulations!!

Pam MacKenzie - January 30, 2014 - 3:25 pm


I saw that a friend on FB had liked your status & so I went to see!

I am a grandmother now, & I read your piece, which my young mummy friend had liked, about ‘Before you were Mommy’ & thought it was great & so true. So I intend to share your blog with couple of new mums at our Church.

Keep up doing this blog as I believe it is a beautiful way of helping other mum’s with encouragement too.

Blessings in the Lord’s love,

Julianne - January 30, 2014 - 11:07 pm

Wow, we sound very similar! Both in personality and lifestyle!! I will be married at age 19 and my fiance is a welder and will be a volunteer firefighter within a couple years! I read your post “sweet little bride” and cried like a baby, thank you for that! I hear so much discouragement from people but I just don’t listen because I know that this is God’s plan! It is refreshing to read this from a Christian perspective.

Ellie - January 31, 2014 - 8:30 am

I love your link. I am a 60 yr old grandma of a 3 yr old little boy David and 1yr old little girl Sophie. Life is not easy but knowing the Lord has made it easier. I was also 19 when k
I married and he was 18. Still married after 40 yrs. Keep up the good work.

arin - January 31, 2014 - 10:41 am

LOVEEE you. love reading your blog when I should be working :X your children are gorgeous! I found your blog somehow yesterday…I don’t think I stumbled upon it for no reason as a lot of what you have said, sits really well with me. :) I have a 3 year old daughter and can totally relate to going to the grocery store and rushing through! I laughed reading that thinking “thank goodness im not the only one!!”

Cally - January 31, 2014 - 3:09 pm

I just stumbled across your blog today. A friend posted one of your entries on FB. I must say it is very refreshing to see something wholesome and honest on FB with all the crap that is on there. I keep my page for my out of town family to keep up with our family. I’ve read a few of your entries and I am now in love :) I’m feeling that all too familiar “tug” from the Lord and it always scares me when He does that. I fear that He does that so that I’m fully leaning on Him and can handle the next bad thing that is about to happen to me. I don’t like to feel that way :( Anyway…there’s a reason I found you. Not sure what it is yet but I’ll wait for it patiently and enjoy reading in the meantime

Lauren Jackson - January 31, 2014 - 7:39 pm

I don’t usually comment on people’s blogs, but I just wanted to let you know I think we’re twins. As in, everything you wrote on this page I feel like I could say for myself. Except the crafty, diy thing. I really stink at that because I have an attention span of about 6 minutes, not 6 weeks… I start a craft and it never gets finished. as in a half-knitted scarf, a half-painted painting, etc. Oh yeah, and I’m a photographer too! Just wanted to encourage you that you made tears pour down my cheeks as I read your “to wives before you were mommy” post… i’m in the midst of sleep-deprived chaos with a toddler & a 3 month old and i can’t remember what it feels like to get a good night sleep and a good shower AND successfully get dressed, brush my teeth, blowdry my hair & put makeup on! Whew. even writing that made me tired. And most of all, right now I’m struggling with missing my hubby + me. the “we” part is missing for us… I like to think it’s on the bottom of the pile of laundry that never gets done in our house… one day when i actually reach the bottom of that pile i’m going to find “us” again and it will be like old times. at least I dream so! for now, I just need Jesus. yep. that’s about all! all this rambling to say, thank you! love your blog!

Dashima - February 1, 2014 - 9:02 pm

I just found this site today and I have been reading it for about an hour. I don’t even remember how I found it… BUT I LOVE IT!!! I am a newly wed (but not 19, I am 34 :) I have one step son but am thinking about having children of my own one day. really like your perspective on things. Thanks Becky! P.S. Nice family pics!

edna - February 5, 2014 - 7:29 pm

My first time to your website and i am lovin it. I love the way you embrace life, the way you love Jesus and the way you are! Keep up the good work and i am gonna share your website with my gfs. God bless you abundantly as you love Him and trust in Him. He will multiply the little that you sow and none of these will return void. love, edna

Angel Joshua - February 7, 2014 - 4:34 pm

Dear Becky,
I was awestruck by your post on “To wives before you were a mommy…” it sure was an eye opener for many better halves. Thank you for being a blessing to me and many others through your writings. Our God is an awesome God and He has shown you at the right time when I needed some encouragement after having my second son in September 2013.

Your articles speak volumes of my life and am glad to have found you. Keep writing…my best wishes for all the good work you do.

Love & Prayers

Breezy Battenfield - February 10, 2014 - 1:19 pm

I am oh so happy I have stumbled upon your blog. It is always a joy to be reminded of the Lord’s love. I am a stay at home mom as well and I can definitely get caught up in daily tasks and forget what matters. Thanks for allowing God to speak through you!

Amanda - February 12, 2014 - 10:03 am

I just saw your story To wives: Before you were mommy on a friends timeline on facebook. I read it and thought how true. We just had our second child. And before our first came my husband said we would go through exactly what you described in your blog, but I insisted there’s no way we would be that couple. However, it didn’t take long before we found ourselves in that rut. So after reading your story I went to your blog page. Super excited to have found this.


Ashley - February 15, 2014 - 11:15 am

First and foremost I personally would like to thank you! You have a way with words and every time I need an encouraging word I come here. I am also 26 with an almost 1 year old, my husband works nights and I work days so my Bean and I are home every night by ourselves. Somehow I have developed a bit of depression, there are the obvious struggles of being young and a parent that hit me hard and fast. I guess my body is unsure of how do deal with some of the stress of daily life and when I need a pick me up, or a reminder that I am doing somethings right I come here. I tear up reading the majority of your writings and I’m perfectly fine with that. I had this hope when I became pregnant, like most mommies do that things would be totally different than the reality. My daughter is perfect, my husband is amazing to both her and myself, bills come in like clock work and the chores are endless. Money is tight and there are never enough hours in the day for this working mommy to spend precious quality time with my quickly growing girl. Your post “That’s where mommy was” hit me hard and I shared it on my facebook and tagged numerous people that I thought needed to read it! I also enjoyed “What I Wish They Had Told Me Before…” and pretty much every other one. Haha!! I have never been very religious but I love your writings and how you reflect being a parent and doing the best for your children to being a child of God. You are teaching me! I just wanted to thank you!

Tessa - February 20, 2014 - 1:59 am


I enjoyed reading your web page.. i like the story of your son Pie… he is awesome.. God is on his side… got goosebumps while reading it.

I like how you describe yourself, almost seeing my self, especially the “non organized” part, i also love photography, but yours is way to good. but i dont have my own family yet, but i love to someday.

Reading your blog lifted me up today. I don’t know how i came across your site, but glad i did.

Thank you for sharing your life and family.

Continue being a blessing .



liz - March 4, 2014 - 2:34 pm

Hi Becky…just discovered your blog today…and am loving it! I have a 5 month old, a 2 year old, and a 4 year old, so I felt right at home reading all your entries. Its so encouraging knowing that there are others out there doing what I am doing, believing what I believe, and just hanging in there as we try to honor God in the wonderful monotony of being a stay at home mom. :) yes i am writing this with one hand with a sleeping baby in the other. lol

kathy - March 6, 2014 - 12:59 am

So glad to have found you.

Barb S - March 7, 2014 - 3:37 am

Hi Becky,
Have just discovered your blog. I read out your article “Falling in love is not the greatest adventure” to my husband / best friend of 42 years and we both absolutely agree with everything you wrote. That should be prescribed reading for all married couples. Well done. Blessings to you and your family from us here in New Zealand.

Rachel - March 19, 2014 - 1:02 pm

The more I read your blog, the more I think we would be real-life BFF’s. My husband teases me all the time about jumping into something with both feet and losing interest so quickly.

Tara - March 27, 2014 - 9:58 am

Just found your site today, via a friend’s post on Facebook. I am SO glad that I did. I have been reading all morning! I love the atmosphere on here, and reading all of your kind inspiring words. I have my own jewelry business on the side, but recently left the work force to be at home with our little lady……so I look forward to your experiences, advice, ideas, and stories!

becky hallam - March 28, 2014 - 2:59 pm

Wow, my dear, just wow. I frequently browse the internet and find blogs of all sorts but I’ve never been effected by someones writing in such a way as yours. Not only have I now read 2 handfuls or so within the past half hour, but I have been so touched and relate so closely to your posts (hello, tears!). God certainly has blessed you with a story to share and the means to share it.

Thank you for sharing your life with random strangers. Blessings to you and your family

lori ash - March 29, 2014 - 9:56 am

I just read “where mommy was” and was so blessed. I don’t usually comment, but your love for Jesus and your desire to share that love just blessed my heart! He is truly there even when we can not perceive Him! Have a blessed day!

Kim - March 29, 2014 - 4:38 pm

I love this website SO much! The Lord has definitely blessed you with gifts and I am so grateful you are using them in such a way that blesses and inspires all of us! Thank you!

Colleen - March 31, 2014 - 11:57 pm

I just found your blog through a friend posting your article about fake pregnant announcements for April 1st. Such a thoughtful and caring article. My husband and I have been walking a long, difficult road in that department. It’s so lovely to find a women who has children yet thinks about what those shoes may be like for someone walking a different path.

hbm - April 1, 2014 - 7:26 am

I have been debating retiring from my photography business since the arrival of my third child (now 18 months) and have stopped booking weddings. Reading this has made me happy – glad I am not the only one who walks away from success in order to be able to handle it all!

Kathryn - April 1, 2014 - 10:20 am

I stumbled across your blog today from the post about not announcing pregnancies on April Fool’s Day. You and I have a lot in common. I have lost three babies to miscarriage – three in heaven and none in my arms yet. I have started a ministry for women who experience pregnancy loss, called Hannah’s Hope. I live in NE Oklahoma. (-:

Anyway, I just wanted to say hi, and I really appreciate your blog and have enjoyed reading through some of your posts. (-:


Anissa - April 1, 2014 - 9:01 pm

I am a NW Okie to and no I do not know y’all either!! But I want to thank you in the end you have your ministry and it is through your faithfulness. I lost a child once, was a single mother not by my choosing and have a daughter who had heart surgery when she was little, and the list could go on……but the thing is in your trials you find the testimony and the lesson as well and you have the eloquence to write about it and in a very profound way. Thank you for listening to that still small voice he has blessed you with and may you always keep it close. My favorite thing to say with all that I have been through is that only he knows exactly who he needs me to talk to and why or else I would never have gone through it. Once there was a lady I gave her my testimony and she completely changed her life and started going to Christ and her whole world was turned around, everything was worth what I went through for knowing she gave her heart to the Lord and took her family with her. Your stories have touched my heart and reminded me of times in my life I have not had the times to remember in a while and how many blessings they held in there sorrows and joys. Thank you very much.

Anj Cambi - April 1, 2014 - 11:19 pm

Hi Becky! It’s so nice to stumble upon your blog. I am blessed with your passion and dedication to your family. It’s good to know bloggers who share the same faith in Jesus with the heart to bring inspiration to others with what we write! More power on your blog! :)


Lydia Russell - April 1, 2014 - 11:30 pm

And to add to my last comment, you honestly seem as if you could seriously already be a member of the church. That is why I feel so strongly to bare my testimony to you. I know if you gave it a chance, you too would feel the spirit testify to you of the truthfulness therein. c: I promise.

Wishing you the very best,

Lydia Russell

Rebekah Vaughn - April 4, 2014 - 11:37 am

I found your website through a friend who posted your “Sweet Little Bride” post on Facebook. Your posts make me both cry and laugh! You are honest and full of hope in the Lord. Your posts have given me things to think about and meditate upon. Thank you so much for bearing your heart to people, some that you don’t even know. You rock! Keep doing the Lord’s will. God bless you and your family.

Kendra @ www.joyinourhome.com - April 24, 2014 - 11:42 pm

Soo glad to be here for the first time…. I’ve followed you on IG for a while now but hasn’t checked out your blog… Thx for the time you spend at your computer so us ladies can be encouraged! Blessings!

Emmy - April 29, 2014 - 1:06 pm

Came across your site through a friend’s facebook page…glad I clicked on the link! Great blog, can’t wait to read more!

Bethany - May 2, 2014 - 11:46 am

I just want to thank you for your post, The lie that nearly destroyed our marriage. It hit so close to home. I too went through the same things in my marriage and it took the first few years before I finally listened to what God was telling me. To this day, no one knew the hardships we were going through, but God did. And He brought us through them together! Thank you for sharing. I never realized there were others going through the same things. We are coming up on our 6th aniversary!

Danielle - May 15, 2014 - 11:56 am

“I bet this lady’s living room is as messy as mine.”-That was EXACTLY what I thought! I don’t have it all together, but I really love Jesus and just go from there. Finding this blog has been so refreshing!

Janet - May 16, 2014 - 8:47 am

Hi Becky. Just read your post about your miscarriage v. abortion that a friend posted on Facebook. I am very sorry for your loss. I have never had children – another type of loss…..So I found myself looking around your website. You are wise beyond your years. AND you have great writing talent. You remind me of Irma Bombeck. She’s gone now but her style was funny but heartwarming at the same time. I encourage you to keep at it! Blessings on you!

Angela - May 16, 2014 - 2:17 pm

Hi Becky! Love your blog. I stumbled upon it by way of your post about miscarriage. Great post, I’ve not lost any babies but have many many friends who long for heaven so they can kiss, snuggle and hold their precious babies.
I totally laughed in your about me when you stopped eating processed foods for a whole 6 weeks. We have so much in common! Thank you for being so open about your love for Jesus, it’s an awesome thing to find blogging sisters in Christ to find encouragement from all the way across the country! Have a blessed day :)

Heather - May 19, 2014 - 7:47 am

A friend posted a link to one of your posts on Facebook and I read the post…then kept reading. I identified with your grocery store post. When my son is crying in the grocery store I always feel like people are staring at me and wondering why I am even there and torturing my child to boot. I enjoy and appreciate your words. I am a stay at home mommy of a 7 month old boy and love it. It is also emotionally challenging and it is great to read advice from someone who has been here three times (and survived with herself, her children and her marriage happily intact :) ). Thank you!

Laura Nichols - May 21, 2014 - 4:32 am

I LOVE your blogs. You have a lovely style of writing and I second what you said about abortions and miscarriages. I had a miscarriage too and some nurses really lack sensitivity.

Ashley - May 21, 2014 - 8:42 am


I recently read your moving, heart-breaking yet encouraging story of the loss of your first baby. I, too, lost a baby last year and your blog was an amazing reminder to me of where my heart should be, and of the lies I was believing. I had a question, though. You said your Dr. prescribed something for future pregnancies to avoid miscarriage. What was that? Thank you so much for sharing so much wisdom. It certainly brought God glory in my life.

Laura - May 23, 2014 - 8:44 am

I am new to your site, and feel right at home! Loved your post “Anyone else tired of hiding their mess”. So true! Then I read your “about me” page and was like, WOW we are so much alike! I’ve thought about starting a blog, but now I’d don’t have too, I’ll just follow yours! Much less work for me and you get a new fan following along and cheering you on. Excited to read more! God bless you and your family!

JAMIE - May 31, 2014 - 12:03 am

Browsing through the Facebook world and came across your little blog. It’s so cute!

Be well!!!!

Ron - June 2, 2014 - 7:54 am

I’m from the Philippines and I stumbled upon your blog… I read about your miscarriage and I can completely relate to your experience. I too had a miscarriage last 2012, but God blessed us with a baby boy the following year. Thank you for putting it into words so that others may also see God’s love and faithfulness.
Thanks also for reminding new moms that they are wives first, before moms.. That’s an easy one to forget. Needed that reminder today :)
May God continue to bless you and your family

I found you on Facebook by a friend that sent your blog blog “What you probably need to hear the most right now. I got married at the age of 16. I put up with every type of abuse you could imagine for 34 years. Not to mention the many affairs. Why did I stay in that relationship for so long? I was raised and taught that when you make your vows they are to be till death do us part. In 1990-1993. I took care of my father-in-law until right before he passed away. He went to a nursing home because my husband was a long distanced truck driver and I had two kids to care for. A few days later he passed away. 2006 my dad died in April from COPD and afibib. He passed away unexpectedly. He and my mom lived in an assisted living because she had Alzheimer’s. She lasted 6 months and passed away October, 2006. right after we buried my dad, my mother-in-law was told she had cancer. I was working, trying to care for parents and be a wife and mother. I organized building on to the back .of our double wide home for my mother-in-laws place to stay while I cared for her. She never made it to see it completed. She passed away Nov, 2007. I didn’t have my I eyes opened to see he was cheating yet again. We continued to argue etc until 2009 I told him I was going to go home pack my stuff to get by on until he left out again. He said ok. Come to find out the girl he moved in was one he had been having affair with for over a year.
Am I still angry at the two of them? No! I had to ask God to take my anger and bitterness away and he did. I am still single with a daughter living with me and her two year old son. I still get so very depressed. Have multiple health issues that has me on disability. But I did need to hear or read Its going to be ok. Thank you and God bless..

I came here through your post “What You Need to Hear Right Now,” which brought me to tears. I’m an Okie girl too, born & raised in Tulsa. My husband & I have been married for almost 3 years and have a 16 month old little girl. Not gonna lie, times have been tough lately. I really enjoy reading your inspirational posts.

I love your blog! I just found it…I wish I’d found it sooner…there need to be more like yours. I’m usually sucked in with things like perfect cupcake recipes or how to be the best wife in the universe…and then quickly turned off by the air of un-realness that comes through on SO many blogs. It usually only breeds guilt and anxiety! I love yours. It’s inspiring and beautiful and loving and funny. Keepin’ it real! I love being a mommy too…and I love Jesus…I also have DIYs that I am not posting about because I can’t find the time but maybe someday I will! Thank you for your blog. :D

I always feel like I should holler “Boomer” anytime I come across a fellow Okie. But what if they’re a Cowboy’s fan…So how about a “Hey y’all!”

Emily - November 10, 2014 - 9:11 am

Hello Becky,
I just found your blog and I am already loving it! It is so refreshing to find someone else who shares a belief in and love for Jesus Christ. I love the quote from Pie you posted here- it is such a simple, profound truth! His love is unshakable- so real and unfathomable at the same time! Thank you for sharing here:)

So I absolutely love your site, I found it on a Facebook post and think it’s awesome. Every time I read a blogger’s site, I’m envious because I love to write, my dad was a sports writer for a newspaper before he became a teacher and writing is kind of in my blood. However, I’ve never really known how to start. You’re incredibly gorgeous & I’m envious because being 18 weeks pregnant, I don’t feel so gorgeous. Keep up the amazing work but you know don’t be too amazing. Haha

Hey. It’s so funny how you just know when you start reading someone’s blog that they love Jesus even before they say it. I found you through Pinterest and I’m so glad I did! You’re on my bloglovin feed now :) Thank you for sharing Jesus and your heart. It’s a courageous thing to do.

I just want to say thank you for your words this morning. I am a mom of 4 amazing boys who I don’t know what I would do without, but at the same time feel like I’m going to drown. Your words are truthful and real. Thank you for your passion and truth. Natasha

Hey! I just stumbled across your blog when you posted an article about this craze on ’50 shades of Gray’ and I loved and shared your post! Your blog is amazing and I’m so glad God led me to it! Thank you! :)

Carole - February 11, 2015 - 9:57 am

Dear Becky, I just read your blog on “Christian Women and Christian Gray”. Thank you so much for taking a stand and the encouragement you are offering to other women (young and old)! My daughter (29 yrs old) posted it on FB. (Actually, the 2 of you are VERY similar in many ways!!)

I will look forward to reading more in the days to come and when I do…I will be happy to lift you to the Father to bless you and your family as you stand for Him.

Can I receive your newsletters?

Madeline - February 17, 2015 - 4:45 pm

Becky, I found your site recently and although I have not yet reached that wonderful stage of life (I’m in college), I take great hope from your entries that the posts of exhausted, fed up mothers that I am surrounded by is not all there is to motherhood. I love how you incorporate your faith into your posts. Because really, we all exist because of the grace of God. We all survive tough things through Him. I just wanted you to know that I have your blogged bookmarked for when I do experience the joys of having children, but I love the posts even now!

A friend of mine from church sent me a link to your blog here. I first noticed that you have a wonderful “Last Name”. ;) But, more importantly, that you have a passion for the Savior. That alone excites my Soul! I am so glad that there are young mom’s out there striving to be an encouragement to other young mom’s and us older ones in between. I will be praying for you Becky, as you strive to live for Christ and teach your children the truths of the gospel at a early age. :) Christ is indeed enough and so satisfying. :)Keep Serving, Lisa Thompson-Knoxville,TN
