Christian Women and Christian Grey

Here is my disclaimer, friends. This article is not PG rated. It might make you blush. It will probably stir some feelings of either strong agreement, or perhaps strong defense, but no matter how you feel by the end of this, I need you to know one thing going in… If I didn’t care, I…

My Body Broken for You

I had this mission. Lose all the baby weight. It seemed like a simple goal. Nursing helped. Watching my sugar intake helped. Eating healthy and getting exercise… it all helped. Even though I should be clear that my version of exercise is chasing three kids around. Well, two and a newborn. I have this friend…

To the Mom Who Vacations at Target

Before I begin, I need to say this. Dear Target, thank you on behalf of moms everywhere. You just get us. “I think we are out of trash bags,” I said one evening to my husband after he came home from work. We had a three month old baby boy who was nursing, and I…

Yes! Another “To the Momma” Post.

A few weeks ago, I overheard a conversation at the store between a husband and wife about how many “mom posts” were being shared Facebook. As a blogger, I couldn’t help but listen to their exchange. (Also, they were talking loudly and they were right in front of me in line.) The husband said, “Aren’t…

What I Really Want…

I think about you constantly. You are never far from my thoughts. From the moment I wake up and all throughout my day, you are always on my mind. And when I am awake at night, all I can think about is how much I will need you tomorrow. I don’t want to go one day…

Before He Proposed

It was a crisp, cold December night just a few days before Christmas. My boyfriend suggested that we get dressed up and go to a fancy restaurant. The night felt significant. Honestly, it felt a little magical. I think that Christmas has a way of making everything feel special. Jared picked me up and drove…

10 End of the Year Awards (For Parents)

Well, if we were in sports or a school club or even a part of a large company, there would likely be a banquet or something where we all got together to celebrate our year’s success. We would talk about our greatest moments and discuss how we could improve moving forward. There might be a catered…

The World’s Worst Mom

My patience was hanging on by a thread. They had spent the morning playing with play doh and coloring and reading and dragging out all of their toys and FIGHTING. There had been tons of fighting. I had my four month old on my hip as I put away the dishes when they came running…

For Those Who Won’t Be Home For The Holidays

On the other side of the world, there is a soldier defending freedom. He has been gone for many days. Each one a sacrifice. Each one pressing a little harder against the already sore place in his heart. He longs for home. Home full of love and safety and security. And while each day is…

You know all of those things that you do every day? All of the ones that keep you going from the time that you wake up until the time that you go to bed? All of the moments where little kids or babies or not quite adults need your hands and your attention and your…

ADVENT Day 3

Last year, I took my sweet two year old girl shopping with me for Christmas decorations. What we got was more than we expected. We were in the middle of the chaos of people rushing and grabbing and fussing and doing just about anything to get their hands on the last great deal. As we made…

To The Momma at Chick-Fil-A

I saw you come in with your sweet kids the other day – one on your hip and one around your leg. I watched as you ordered your lunch, and then set the baby on the counter to dig through the diaper bag for your wallet. I wanted to cheer for you as they handed…

It’s Okay.

It’s not your fault, you know.   It really isn’t. No matter how many times you have thought it. No matter how many times someone told you. It’s not your fault. You know exactly what I’m talking about. Don’t you? You know exactly what your “it” is. It is that thing that hangs over your…

Little Girls and Their Mommas

“You’re a mean momma!” She shouted as she pushed her tiny thirty pound body away from mine. They were hurtful words, but I knew she didn’t mean them. I mean, she did, but… she didn’t really. On this day, I wouldn’t let her have another juice box before bed. “Sister. Momma doesn’t want you to…
