“Let Me Hold the Baby” & Other Sexy Things My Husband Says

He came in from a long day of work and took his boots off by the front door. I was standing in the living room trying to fold the clothes with one arm while holding a baby with the other. Our oldest two had abandoned the Disney Junior show that they were watching, and had…

The Day that Love Won: A Response to the Supreme Court’s Ruling

We were on vacation. That is what I will tell my children when they ask where we were the day that the Supreme Court made a ruling that would allow same-sex marriage nationwide. I had signed off of social media for the week… I had lost track of my days and dates… and our biggest…

To My Husband: Now That You Are Daddy

  When we were dating, I liked to imagine what you would be like as a daddy someday. You would do something funny, and I would think, “Awww. See. He’s going to be such a fun dad.” Or you would do something purposefully kind, and I would say to myself, “Yes! He’s going to be…

Why I Let My Son Draw in the Dirt at His T-Ball Game

  This is my son. He is five years old. He loves Legos, pretending to be any form of super hero, and whatever “screen time” I will allow him. He sleeps with a special blanket. He would eat his weight in sweets if I were to let him, and he loves Jesus like a friend.…

It felt like I was watching a real-life fairytale playing out on…

The Hardest Day of the Year

Every year, you think it will be easier. You think that the last 365 days have prepared you to face it. You know that it is coming. You see the ads on TV. You see the stores set out their timely displays. And you tell yourself that this year will not be quite as painful.…

Momma’s First Mother’s Day

Hey, Momma? There are a few things that I want to tell you. I just don’t have the words… yet. We’re still figuring this out – you and me. The early mornings and the long nights are hard. I know that you’re tired…. ALWAYS tired. Even on the nights when we both get a little…

To You Who Will Be Married Young – From One Wife Who Made It

A sweet friend of mine had a wedding shower this weekend, and I wasn’t able to make it. It was just one of those things where my husband happened to be working out of town, and there wasn’t anyone who could watch all three of my little ones (even for those few hours.) I was…

#NoMoreMommyBullies

I tell my children all of the time to, “Play nice.” Do you know why? Do you know why I teach this lesson to my children? Because how we interact with others matters, because compassion is important, and because nobody likes a bully. I get a lot of hate mail. No, really… I get countless…

The Day My Husband Bought Me a Little Black Dress

“I want to buy you a LBD (little black dress) for our trip to Colorado. Any input?” The text message from my husband flashed across my phone. He was working out of town, and I had just gotten three babies in bed by myself. I was tired. No. I was exhausted. I had been on…

Have You Seen This Couple? (They’re Not Missing)

I remember waiting by the window for Jared to show up for our date. I was ready early (a shocking truth for anyone who knows me now.) It was going to be our last date before I packed up and went back to school across the state leaving our summer romance behind. I always wondered…

Why We Are Going To Get Up And Do It All Again Tomorrow

It’s been a long day hasn’t it? Maybe your long day began before mine did. I’m just now cleaning up the kitchen after dinner, but today felt long beginning around 9:00 am this morning. We were out of milk, which made cereal for breakfast… difficult. The shirt that we really wanted to wear was in…

She Might Not Tell You, But I Will… The Joke Is Still Over

In 2014, I wrote this article,– and it spread like wildfire. I heard from people all across the globe who agreed, and others who used some pretty strong language to tell me how much they disagreed. But out of all of it, I noticed one thing. It started a discussion. And sometimes? All it takes…
