When You Can’t Be Everything for Everyone

Thursday, February 1st, 2018

I get it. You looked into their sweet little eyes and wondered, “Do you feel like I’m too busy? Do you know that I feel like I’m failing you?” You looked at your husband and thought, “Do you know that I wish there was more time for us, too? Like, do you know that I…

When your child is young and it is time for bed, you walk into the room ahead of them, and turn on the nightlight. You might find the special blanket or lovie, you might even turn on the closet light and open the closet door… You do these things because you love your child. You…

Strong Mom.

Monday, October 16th, 2017

I imagine you sitting on your couch – a baby crawling on the floor or in your lap… maybe an older brother or sister playing nearby. You’re going to have to think about their next meal or snack or diaper soon or maybe you’ll need to go get bigger kids from school soon – which means you’ll…

When A Spirit-Led Mom Remembers Who She Really Is

Thursday, August 17th, 2017

Sometimes my heart becomes absolutely overwhelmed. Does this ever happen to you? You know the Truth of who God is, and yet you become so focused on… just… everything else happening around you?

When What’s Best For Your Child Doesn’t Make Sense to Anyone Else

Monday, August 14th, 2017

It’s nine o’clock AM, and I am sitting outside my daughter’s first grade classroom with my laptop open and my heart a little nervous. The school, built decades ago, isn’t setup like most. The classrooms open up to a central library. And while you might think that noise or distractions would prevent little minds from…

Summer’s Final Call

Wednesday, August 9th, 2017

“That’s it! It’s time to come in now! We’re going to have to get ready for bed, because school starts tomorrow.” It was the last call of the summer. It seems as though my kids have spent more hours out of the house than in it over the last few months. They played in our…

Hey Momma? If You Are Still Awake Read This

Sunday, July 2nd, 2017

Did you think it all over? – The day, I mean. Have you had a chance to replay all of your moments? To rethink your choices? To come up with half a dozen ways you could have or should have done it differently? Have you made promises for how tomorrow will be different? Tomorrow, you’ll…

What Will Your Kids Grow Up and Read About Their Lives?

Friday, June 30th, 2017

I was sitting in the hallway waiting for my kids to finally fall asleep. All three of them wanted me to sit in their bedrooms, but obviously this wasn’t possible. I don’t know if you realize this, but a person cannot be three places at once. Try telling them this. So I compromised and plopped down onto the…

Sunday, June 25th, 2017

I don’t really remember what my son did that evening to cause me to put him in timeout, but I know that he needed a minute to think about what he had done. That’s why we do timeouts in our house. When my kids make a poor choice, they take a break and pause for…

You have a brand new baby, and you have a question. So you pick up your phone… and instead of calling mom or grandma, you Google it. Instantly you have access to information and experts and thousands of other moms who have experienced the same thing. This isn’t the only place you go for an…

Here’s To The Women Who Push

Thursday, May 11th, 2017

I was standing in my backyard a couple of nights ago, pushing my three children on the swings. That’s not exactly true, but it sounds better in a blog post. The little one. I was just pushing him, and honestly, I didn’t want to be pushing him. I wanted to sit on the back porch…

My Husband Saved My Son’s Life Tonight – But it Could Have Ended Differently

Saturday, April 29th, 2017

That’s not a click-bait title. I honestly couldn’t think of anything better to call this article. This just happened… as in… less than two hours ago, and now that the kids are tucked soundly in their beds, I’m sitting down to process. Forgive me, because this isn’t a “days later” reflection. This isn’t an “I’m…
