Start Here

I’m Candace and I want to welcome you to my little home on the web! I pray that this little space brings much encouragement for moms and all women that stop by. The name for my blog came from one of my most favorite passages in the Bible…His mercies really are new every single morning. I’m so thankful.

“Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23


A Little More About Me

I’m married to David and we live in East Tennessee where we homeschool our 3 beautiful children.  Our kids are 14yrs, 13yrs and 11yrs.  I also stay busy teaching piano, being involved in our church and small group and blogging, of course! We are also busy in our local church, Manley Baptist, where I sing and play keyboards from time to time. Music and worship are one of my passions! Before we had children, I was a kindergarten teacher in the local public school system and I loved it!! I loved it so much that I thought parenting would be a piece of cake. ha! Oh how we know what great moms we can be before having children.

I would love to have you join me on my blog’s Facebook page,  Pinterest, and Instagram

Praying The Scriptures


The Lord has used His Word to powerfully change my heart and restore hope. I share a lot about this because God has done such a work in my heart, brought me such comfort and encouragement, that I want to share that with you! Praying Scripture is transformational not only for your prayer life, but also for your relationship with God.

What started for me in my desperate moments, became my favorite way to pray. When I didn’t have words to speak and I didn’t know what to pray, in my darkest moments of depression, the Lord used His Words to give me words. The prayers of the psalmist, became my prayers.


My heart is to be real and authentic with you in my struggles as well as my joys. I have shared my story about how God met me in my darkest moments. My hope is that you will hear this truth: God doesn’t always take away our pain, but He meets us there in the darkness and He takes us by the hand…He never lets go and comfort is always there through His Holy Spirit.


Write the Word

But, why do we write things down? 

We write things down that we want to remember.

Why wouldn’t we want to write down the most important Words there are?

His Word is life to us — write it down!

His Word is a treasure — treat it as such!

His Word is comfort to us — allow Him to comfort you as you write.

His Word is conviction to us through His Holy Spirit — soften your heart as you write. Allow the Holy Spirit to work in your life as you write and pray His Word.

  1. Candace, I discovered your site- last month and was drawn to the aspect of writing the WORD. Well, the phone rang, someone came to the door; and I lost the contact. Tonight- finally after much seeking, it popped up. Thank you for the ministry. I am a mid-60’s person who recently came into a season of lukewarmness. You encouraged my heart to allow GOD to do his work. Isn’t is so wonderful that believers can encourage one another. God bless your efforts. I will pray for you as well.
