A Lesson on Beauty

*Clomp clomp clomp clomp* “Look, mommy! I pretty just like you.” Her tiny size 6 toddler feet were tucked into the toes of my sparkly flats. She had gone to my closet and pulled them all on her own. She was so proud of herself as she came clomping across the kitchen floor. “See! I…

Perspective is Everything

“Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us, fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith.” Hebrews 12:1-2 We were sitting on the front porch enjoying playing with chalk.

Raising Greatness – Parenting With Love

The pool was closing early for the day. We had arrived not long before, and when the announcement was made… I honestly panicked. If you have ever met a toddler, you are surely aware of their extremely delicate dispositions. Basically, they are always one “no” away from complete meltdown. Toddler mommies spend the majority of…

Deep Breath. God is Still on the Throne.

Well, it is 10:40. The babies are asleep, and the day is over. I am finally “off-duty” for a minute. All of the day’s “I’ll think about that laters” are bubbling to the surface of my mind like I just dropped Alka-Seltzer into a cup of sprite. Test results Bills Upcoming trips Health All of…

Hope After Miscarriage

It was a cool rainy September morning just like this one. On that morning, five years ago, hope was fading and fear was taking over my heart. I had been in agony for almost a week. My first appointment with my OB was not scheduled for another month, and I couldn’t get in to see…

You’re Doing Okay, Mom

Our quick trip to the grocery store began like every other. Fights over who got to sit in the “baby” seat and who had to walk or ride in the cart and “can we buy this” and “I want that”… Goodness. I was a frazzled mess as always playing referee and keeping glass bottles from…

Sweet Little Bride…

Dear 19 year old bride with love in your eyes… What a beautiful wedding day! It really couldn’t have been better. The powerless reception hall and the standing water on the indoor dance floor were a little unexpected. Of course, no power meant dinner by emergency lights, a hardened chocolate ‘fountain’, oh and music playing…

Step 1.) Love God Step 2.) Love Others

This is becoming a trend in my life recently… and I love it. I was getting dressed a few mornings ago while God and I were having a little conversation. I will be honest. It was mostly me talking. He’s really gracious like that. He lets me talk and talk and talk and when I’m…

A couple of weeks ago, my husband had an appointment in a city 2 hours away… in a different state… and the kids and I decided to go with him. We were finishing up our trip and stopped to get some ice cream. At the restaurant, my husband and I both took notice of the…
