Moms, do you find yourself thinking that you are just not doing enough as a mother or that your life would be so much better just if you had what someone else has? Read more

What Day Stirs The Heart of a Woman More Than Any Other Day?

3

A holiday is approaching this month that is unrivaled in its ability to stir the heart of a woman—Mother’s Day. It’s a delicate subject. For one the day is filled with joy as they are celebrated by the fruit of their womb; for another it’s a day spent in remembrance honoring the legacy of a mother now gone; for many others it is a day when their heart aches and their strength and value as a woman is called in to question because they have no biological children of their own.

Today I Am Grateful…Introducing Our Community

Professional, financial, personal and relational challenges filled my heart with such bitterness that it was difficult to find joy in anything. Fast-forward to now (2016) – things have changed! One key to getting out of that pit was remembering what God taught me the years before…. Read more

Learning to Fly- Guest Post

The pathway towards contentment is not walked alone. We NEED Community and here at ‘One Grateful Me’ we’ve created just that- a community of women learning how to be content one day at a time. I’m often encouraged by the testimonies of others walking this path with me. Each month I’ve invited one woman to share her perspective on this journey.

I’m excited to introduce my dear friend and Author, Nicole D. Miller as the first guest writer on my blog! Let her know what you think 🙂 – Jamia

“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.”(Phil 4:6-7)

Worried About Tomorrow? 3 Alternatives

Bonus Content Today!!! This month there will be two features on ‘Barriers to Contentment’ Check out this post & let me know what you think!   

Scripture: Matthew 6:34 (MSG): “Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow. God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.”

I’ve been pretty discontent for the past several months… Among the multitude of concerns pressing on my heart have been worries about my future.  Looking for greener grass I’ve sought comfort in thoughts like: “Life will be better once this situation is over ” or “I’ll be so happy when A, B or C happens”.
