Well, We Voted… Now What?

Well, we did it. We voted. Some of us stood in line for hours. We stood in line in the rain and in the cold and in the sunshine. We stood in line before work, or on our lunch breaks, or right in the middle of our shifts. We stood in line with babies on…

“You Christians Are the Worst!” he said.

“You Christians are the worst!” The words stopped me. It was a few years ago, and I was scrolling through the comment section of an online article focused on the latest Christian controversy at the time. Searing words back and forth and from all sides of the issue were spilled like hot tar on an…

Her Son Wasn’t Wearing Shoes at the Zoo

Her son wasn’t wearing shoes at the zoo.  That wasn’t the first thing I noticed about her or the little blonde-haired boy with her. And the fact that he didn’t have shoes on definitely isn’t the point of this story. But sometimes little bare feet expose our hearts… My husband and I took our three…

I sat on the floor of my bedroom closet. “Why doesn’t he just get it!?” I cried to myself. We were fighting about something so simple, but my heart was overwhelmed by the list I had been keeping for nine years. Everything I wanted him to do differently, every attitude of his I wished that…

You’re Supposed to Love This

There’s this ache that says, “You’re supposed to love this. You’re supposed to love this and be better at all of this. There’s probably something wrong with you. You need to figure it out. Get it together. Figure out how to make yourself enjoy it all more.” And you believe it. So you look around…

What I Don’t Want My Kids to Believe

It was well after midnight, and I scrambled to find a pen and paper. I have a hard enough time locating a pen during the day, but I was able to find a marker in my kitchen junk drawer. It was a blank sheet of white paper waiting to be filled – a clean slate.…

I Bought My Daughter a Dress Even Though She Disobeyed

I tried to calm her. Sweetheart, just put the dress on the counter so we can pay for it. Okay? Look. See all of these people patiently waiting in line behind us? This nice lady at the register wants to finish with us so she can help the other customers too. I just need you…

“Easy” DIY Faux Shiplap Wall Tutorial

Before I start, I need you to know something. This wasn’t easy. All of those tutorials that call walls like these easy… those people are speaking from the finish line. The “let’s stand back and enjoy our hard work” position of the project. My disclaimer is this: In the middle of this project (that I…

Marraige After Kids

Holding My Husband’s Hand Changed Our Marriage

I don’t know what last night was like for you. If you have kids, then my guess is… you might not have spent the entire evening/night alone with your husband in your bed. You probably didn’t go to sleep at a reasonable hour and wake up rested after experiencing zero disruptions. (And if you did,…

Ready or Not! – To Read on the First Day of School

  The house is quiet. I’m walking from room to room looking in each. Everything is still until I hear a little bit of giggling coming from a not-so-secretive little girl. “Ready or not, here I come!” I shout, giving her a little warning that I’m on my way. More giggling. I pull open the…

It Will Be Our Turn… Later

I’m almost to the end of another day. I got my kids up and took them to church and fixed lunch and answered a million questions and solved a million fights and detached a million stuck Legos. There are so many things I need to do. But I know any minute my kids will be…
