To the Man Who Opened the Door for Us – When He Didn’t Have To

When the sun came up this morning, I was awake to see it… not because I’m an early riser, but because I had been up all night with my sick little boy. There is this tummy thing being passed around our small town, and I guess it found its way to the Thompson house. It…

Modest Momma Style: Piko Sweater

Two and a half years ago, I began this website as a fashion/lifestyle blog. Did you know that? It was 2013, and I was a stay at home momma of two sweet babies… and fashion and I were not really speaking at the time. I rarely got dressed in “real clothes” because I was so…

Without Her

You think about her. Sometimes it is when your little one calls you momma, or reaches for you, or snuggles in close. Other times it is when you are in the middle of an ordinary day and you look at your baby and remember the gift. You remember the offering. And you whisper in your…

How to Change the World in One Day

The events that unfolded on the other side of the world last week have left none of us untouched. We have all been changed. Yes – changed. When hundreds of people were attacked as they went about their normal lives… it is just too much. The holidays are coming, and the whole world is supposed…

Dear Kids’ Church Worker

Dear Kids’ Church Worker – You fed them donuts didn’t you? The left over ones from the lobby? Or maybe they were animal crackers or goldfish. Maybe those circle vanilla wafers?? Whatever their snack was… they sure loved it. Because let’s be honest they aren’t too interested in lunch now. But it’s okay. Really. I…

The Wife Who Just Needed a Hug – But NOT Right Away

When my husband has been at work all day, I happen to stay at home with the kids. I know this isn’t the situation for all families. I know that not every woman who has a child stays at home. There are plenty of other ways that families operate. But in our family, I get…

A Different Sort of Stretch Mark

I put this stinky cream on my belly twice a day while I was pregnant with my son in an attempt to avoid stretch marks. I read that certain foods helped with skin elasticity and that there were vitamins I could take to help my skin heal as well. But if the lotions and the…

The Christian Who Didn’t Care About a Cup

I will be the first to say that I don’t agree with all of the views that Starbucks has shared over the last few years. I will be the first to say that I don’t drink their coffee. But it is not because of the color or design of their cup or the beliefs of…

Why I Let Her Dress Like That in Public

Getting my daughter dressed for school is one of my least favorite parts of my morning routine. Well, that is until today. Today, I decided to do things a little differently. I guess if we want to be technical, I actually made this decision late last night after my four year old had finally fallen…

To the Momma of the Anxious Child

Okay, we’ve done this every morning for the last nine weeks. It’s the same classroom, the same teachers, the same kids. We know how the morning will go, and that mommy comes to pick you up after you play outside and you eat your snack. It’s the same every single day. So, today, we’re just…

An Open Letter to Carrie Underwood (and Every Other Mom) Concerning Mom-Guilt:

Today, I was scrolling through Facebook while my kids played quietly with toys. For the record, I give my kids 100% of my attention. I do not ignore them, but when they are entertaining themselves, I will take my own mental health break and scroll mindlessly for a few minutes through my newsfeeds. (Also, I’m…

I Had a Miscarriage

It was a simple picture posted to social media. A man sitting behind his wife with his arms wrapped around her… hands gently resting on the sides of her tummy. She wore the world’s brightest smile and a shirt that read, “Momma-To-Be.” It was how they would announce… We are expecting! It had only been…

To the Momma of the Strong-Willed Child

I can’t remember where I saw you last. It might have been the grocery store – the place that most mommies dread – but the place you especially dislike visiting. There are too many opportunities for hard there. Hard as in, “No, we can’t have that thing you want today and there isn’t anything I’m…

Calling All Bloggers

When I first began blogging in 2013, I had no idea what I was doing. I mean… I suppose that is not completely accurate. I knew how to operate a basic WordPress blog, because I was a photographer, and I kept a blog to showcase my work. But I had no idea how to maintain…

To My Husband Now That I’m Mommy

Maybe I should have said this a long time ago. Maybe this is the heart behind many of my other writings. Maybe I should have just found a few minutes to put into words what my heart has wanted to say for a while now. So, to my sweet husband, a few things I want…
