About the Author

Hi, I'm Kaitlin! I am a full-time working mom in California. I have an amazing nurse-to-be husband, a 1-year-old son climbing on my couch (and pulling my hair), and a passion for writing. I love God and feel like even though my story isn't "good enough" (I'm a bit of...

  1. I’ve been struggling with wanting to know so much…impatient to wait…and He’s been steadying me, assuring me that I don’t need to know right now, and to focus on Today. What a beautiful reminder you provided, Kaitlin. I so much appreciate that truth–This is the day; let us rejoice {in this} and be glad in it.

    Rich blessings as you stay close to each moment…

  2. I needed this reminder today…to live in the moment, live for right NOW and learn to enjoy without wishing away the little blessings of today. Easier said than done but something I am truly working on. My husband and I so desperately want to have a baby that sometimes I get caught up in when that it will happen and the WHEN becomes my focus, instead of sitting back and enjoying each moment that the Lord blesses us with, as a family of two. 🙂

  3. So true, and moving. Living in the moment is so hard when the worlds constantly telling you to consider your future in every choice you make. Inspiring!

  4. Dearest Kaitlin,
    As your mom, this made me cry happy tears of contentment. I’m so glad that you are consciously embracing this Psalm. You are truly loved. Mom

  5. I love it when God gets our attention and reminds us to stop rushing towards tomorrow and live where we are in each moment and in each new day, He made This Day, it is a gift!

    Enjoyed your post!

  6. “My whole life I feel as though I have been hurdling myself into the next chapter, unsatisfied and discontent with the current page. ”

    This sentence of yours really hit the nail on the head – that is exactly what I have been feeling (since January). God has been dealing with me on this – and has taken away everything that I could possible be discontent or unsatisfied with – and teaching me to be satisfied in HIM and content in HIM and sure that I am on HIS page.

    As I’m sitting at home for the first time in a long time – as I’m having the opportunity to do things I wouldn’t be able to do if I were working – as I’m looking at finances and kids’ faces and responsibilities, you’ve reminded me:
    Dear Daughter, you’re going to want to pay attention.
    Right Here. Right now. This moment is for you.
