On baking day, I remember the Plain(s) Women

March 23, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

On a cold, *spring* day, I stand in my kitchen. My doctors are silent (for the moment), and the silence of my house is a consolation. I slide open the drawer and reach for the card. I carry it to the counter, then bend low to pull out the mixer. I collect eggs. Milk. Butter. […]



When the fire comes, let it (for spring comes after)

March 8, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

The message came in late one evening. Who would be calling at this hour? Busy getting ready for bed, I heard The Mister pick up. And I heard his tone turn grave. It was his brother. Later, he told me the story. How the crew, they’d been working. How a spark had caught and kindled. How […]



To cure in-secure-ity, speak life, give love

February 23, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Things have been a little quiet here on the blog. That’s because I’ve been busy enjoying my life and putting more of my thoughts strictly on Facebook. But today? Today, I feel like teaching again. If you’ve followed me for any length of time here, you’ll know that Jesus and I have been working through […]



Being a “Filler of the Cup” is a privilege

February 20, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

So here’s the thing. When I was a young girl, then a young woman who became a young wife and a young mother, I was so very hungry. Hungry, desperate for an older woman who was full of peace, full of joy, overflowing in wisdom. I was eager to learn, wanting so much to be […]



While you’re waitin’ for answers, wait for Him

February 16, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

It caught my ear when she said it today, “…while I’m waitin’ for answers.” Odd, for I’d just been thinkin’ on that very thing. In the morning hour somewhere before dawn, a picture had come. A person, alone. Elbows on knees. Back all hunched over in a waiting room. While somewhere, a physician was cuttin’ […]



Your name’s engraved on His palms–always chosen

February 14, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

I’ve been holdin’ off on postin’ anything about Valentine’s Day today. Facebook and social media can be just terrible sometimes, can’t they? So very hard, lookin’ at everyone else’s “highlight reels,” comparin’ their color pictures to yours, and feelin’ like yours is monochromatic. Lonely gray. Anyway. I’m one of those girls whose got a lover. […]



Walk free, hurting parent (you’re forgiven)

February 8, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

For the burdened parent today, a word to help you “swing free,” like a child. To know peace. To walk in His love instead of shame… I woke up, and there it was. A few words from a mother who said, “Thank you for listening to His voice. We’ve got a runner, too.” In the […]



When someone you love is running

February 7, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Because someone needs to hear this. Because some *one* is needin’ courage. From the archives, a message my heart still loves… It’s Wordless Wednesday here on the blog.  Well, I thought it was Wordless Wednesday until I was driving home, mochas in hand, and along about County Road 7, Someone Else changed it up. “Speak,” He […]



When you’re not on their radar, you’re on His

February 6, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

This post was started earlier this morning at a local coffee shop. I was going to meet a friend there, and I had slipped in earlier for some quiet time and to begin this very blog post. I could never have foreseen what the Lord had in store. With all that is in me, I desire […]



Why you don’t have to be the perfect parent (just keep plantin’)

February 1, 2017 Rhonda Schrock Rhonda's Posts

Today, I speak to a young mother who’s in the thick of it with small children. I speak also to the parent who’s raisin’ older ones and who’s waitin’ for the seeds to bear fruit. You’re dis-couraged… It happened just today. At the back door, he stops. He’s on his way to work, but he […]
