Every Christian Needs to See What Kevin Did on “This is Us”

If you’re anything like me, you send the kids to bed a few minutes early on Tuesday nights so that you don’t miss one second of the popular new show, “This Is Us” on NBC. (And if they’re not quite in bed when the clock hits 8:00 CST, you’re praising Jesus for your DVR or…

She Has the Best Advice

I was standing in our kitchen after tucking all three of my kids into bed for the night when my oldest son, now seven, came out of his room. I knew the moment his brother and sister heard him out of bed they would follow. “Perfect,” I thought. I had just gotten them all quiet…

Valentine’s Day Now That You’re a Mom

*This photo was taken ten years ago… so…. I feel like that clarifies things. Lean close, friend. I have a feeling that I know what’s happening at your house right now… and it’s only because it’s happening at mine. We are five days away from Valentine’s Day, and my guess is you have spent more…

More Pancakes Less Internet Politics

Recently, the internet feels like a really big crowded room where everyone is shouting. “This is what I think!” “You’re wrong!” “How can you think that way?!” “What are we going to do?!” “What are you so worried about?!” “How are you not worried?! This is a disaster!” Social media used to feel like a…

You Will Teach Your Children the Word Abortion

We will all teach our children the word abortion someday. But what will we say about it? The conversation happened in the car. I can’t remember exactly why the abortion doctor’s name was mentioned… I think it had something to do with an article my husband and I had read in the news… but our…

GOOD MOM SQUARE

You are a D@#$ Good Mom

My five year old daughter, Kadence, has this mirror we hung in her room a few birthdays ago so she could pretend to have her own dance studio. (It was in her brief ballerina phase.) I don’t know what it is about that mirror, but she’s always sassier when she stands in front of it.…

We Pre Three: The Ultimate Date Night Giveaway

Tell me if this sounds familiar. You had a baby. Maybe a year ago, maybe a few years ago… maybe many years ago. And when “we” became “three,” something changed. Okay, a lot changed. Look, I don’t know the circumstances at your house, but I know baby likely meant you didn’t get to connect the…

“Will It Be Enough?”

I ask myself every year, “Will it be enough?” No matter how many presents are under the Christmas tree, no matter how special I try and make the day, no matter how many surprises I can or can’t pull off, I always wonder, “Will my love be enough for my family?” I always wonder if…

Dear Stranger: Here’s How to Speak to My Shy (Selective) Kid

I used to call my daughter shy, but then I decided that our children hear, listen, and believe what we say about them. And while she might actually be shy, she’s also very brave. And I would rather her remember that she’s brave and wild and adventurous than believe the label I give her every…

The Seven Year Chair

We wandered around a boutique-like store full of baby furniture and the hottest nursery items. We had nearly everything we needed before our first baby arrived just a few weeks later. There was only one item left to complete our little boy’s nursery. I wanted a comfy rocking chair. The store had everything from antique…

The Other Man & My Marriage

He’s kind and brave and steady. He’s gentle and loving and intentional. He’s everything I ever wanted him to be and so much more… I thought about this guy for many years in my early married life. Truthfully, I began thinking about him long before I ever met my husband. If you’ve been around for…

When We Cut the Feet Off of Their Pajamas…

“Will you please grab the pajamas in Jaxton’s drawer before you put that pile away?” I shouted as my mom walked toward my boys’ room with a freshly folded stack of pjs. We had folded what seemed like thirty loads of laundry that evening. (I’d like to pause for a brief moment of gratitude for…
