Three Ways the Quarantine Prepared Me For My Son Leaving for College

By Missy Eversole / August 11, 2020 /
, , , ,

One week. Just one week until we move our son into his dorm at Baylor University. Waco is a 14-hour drive or 2 1/2- 3 hours by flight (depending on where you fly into.) I will never forget the conversation that Grant and I had when we were touring the campus during Spring Break 2019.…

Trusting Jesus While Preparing to Move My Son to College in Another State

By Missy Eversole / July 28, 2020 /

Three weeks from today, the dynamics in our house will change. There will be a seat empty at the kitchen table. There will be only one child to get out the door for school. The house will be a little quieter without that infectious laugh that I have heard throughout the years. And if I…

With all the COVID-19 restrictions these last few months, our 14-year-old Cocker Spaniel, Bailey, was in dire need of grooming. If you know anything about Cockers, it’s that their hair grows incredibly long, and when maintained, it’s quite beautiful. However, for our family, it’s easier to keep Bailey shaved down. It’s cooler on him, and…

Finding Shelter Amid the Storms

By Missy Eversole / July 15, 2020 /

Throughout the past few years, I’ve never really liked how our front porch looked. In my mind, a front porch should look inviting and warm. Ours looked dark and cold. With a metal table and two chairs, I tried my best to spruce it up with decorative pillows, a bright wreath on the door, or…

Letting Go, Learning to Fly and Loving Unconditionally

Letting Go I am now the proud parent of a high school graduate. Originally scheduled for May 17th, Grant was finally able to switch the tassel from right to left this past Sunday. Thanks to COVID, instead of sitting in an air-conditioned church sanctuary, we sat in the church parking lot in our cars. Instead…

By Missy Eversole / June 9, 2020 /

My word for the beginning of 2020 was “Cultivate.” The definition of cultivating is “to promote the growth or development.” Wanting to grow as a writer and in my faith, I choose this year to plant my roots. And then the pandemic came. We canceled our spring break trip. The last two months of school…

Did you know that Jesus commands us to love one another? He doesn’t suggest that we love one another. He doesn’t say, “I think it would be good for you to love one another,” or “If you feel like loving one another, that’s your choice. I’m good with whatever you do!” Jesus doesn’t say any…

It’s day 3,198 of our shelter-in-place. Ok, it’s not, but it feels like it! It’s been an emotional roller-coaster these last few days. The governor extended our shelter-in-place for another month. My sons are missing their classmates and are ready to be done with e-learning, and I am done with the same routine over and…

Guess What? You Cannot Hide from God!

When the COVID-19 shelter-in-place hit, no one was more in shock than Bailey, our soon-to-be 14-year-old cocker spaniel. His routine days began with scrambled eggs for breakfast and watching my husband and boys leave for work and school.
