Recovering Angry Mama Bear.

Of course on a Monday morning, we have to be running late. Everyone slept in except for me, and sure enough, we were all running around like chickens with our heads cut off. Tangled hair, screaming six year old, diaper changes, coffee brewing: you know, just a typical morning in the Toller house. But you... Continue Reading →



I'm a different girl than I was five years ago. I'm a different girl than I was five months ago. But, one thing is for certain:  I am a completely different person than I was fifteen years ago. Talking about these times in my life is super painful, but I know that bringing it into the light... Continue Reading →

Testimony Time.

Since shifting the focus of this blog to Jesus over "mommy blogging", I have received such an outpouring of love and support for my budding ministry. I am so grateful to each and every one of you who read, like, comment, and share all of my "mini-messages". I am so humbled to be your resident... Continue Reading →

The House that Built Me.

This is going to be a short and sweet blog post, because I have a neighborhood block party to get ready for and the grocery store is calling my name. But, before the grill is lit and the fun begins, I wanted to stop and give some glory to my God. As most of you know, I... Continue Reading →

Girl, read your bible.

I want to talk to you about self-care for a second. This isn't going to be quite as relaxing as a mani/pedi or as refreshing as a facial, but you all need to hear this. Your hearts, souls, and minds are in serious need of self-care, and no amount of essential oils and avocado toast is going... Continue Reading →

A Thorn in the Flesh.

Three times I pleaded with the Lord about this, that it should leave me. But he said to me,... Continue Reading →

The Hardened Heart.

A lot can happen in a decade. Ten years ago, I was cursing at the moon and drinking my weight in Blue Moon, to boot. I was in, what I thought, was a loving relationship with a guy. But, in fact, I was way more in love with him than he ever was with me.... Continue Reading →

Bipolar Birdie.

I'm in the painful process of lengthening my short fuse, while simultaneously putting out the constantly-burning brush fire in my heart and mind. It's a delicate dance of putting out just enough heat to cook something but not so much that your dinner gets incinerated. It's one of the hardest things I have ever had to overcome,...

Stay Salty!

You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people's feet. “You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do... Continue Reading →
