WHICH SOLAR ECLIPSE MOM ARE YOU-

What Type of Solar Eclipse Mom Are You?

Monday, August 21st, 2017

I don’t know if you’ve heard or not, but there’s something special taking place in the sky today. I know, the internet has been pretty quiet about the whole solar eclipse thing. I mean, it practically snuck right up on us. All of social media is basically so uninterested in the whole thing. What solar…

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? From babies to grandbabies, a mother’s heart never stops thinking of those she’s given to love. So many people and projects and…

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…

Dear friend, Let me start with this. It’s not just up to you to keep them safe. This week I read yet another article online highlighting one more way I need to protect my children from this world. As I made my way through one father’s terrifying narrative and his hopeless account of how he…

When Community Doesn’t Look Like It Once Did

Sunday, July 16th, 2017

Earlier this year, I created a network for writers to find encouragement, resources and community as they pursue their craft. From this network, I have discovered new and seasoned voices that absolutely need to be heard by many! The post below has been written by Tammy, of TammyLeeMarlene.com, and I’m so excited to share it with…

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…

Here’s How to Make Mom Guilt Shut Up (With Free Printable)

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…

Parenting After Miscarriage: Exposing the Underlying Fear

Monday, June 12th, 2017

Jared! Jared! Something is wrong with Jaxton! I heard him make a noise like he was going to throw up, and when I went in there, he was just lying there with his eyes open. I picked him up and he keeps falling over in my arms. Jared, I can’t get him to wake up…

Are We the First Generation of Moms to Get This Wrong

Wednesday, May 24th, 2017

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…

I hope that you exchanged numbers. You two really seemed to hit it off, and I couldn’t tell if you planned to get together again later, so I just want to say this now… I hope that happens. I hope I witnessed your very first best friend lunch. It’s so hard to make friends when…

Who Knew Baby Puke Was So Powerful

Tuesday, April 4th, 2017

I was sitting in a Chick-fil-a play area awhile back, when I took a second to look around at the other moms crammed next to me on the small vinyl bench. One mom was shouting for her kid to, “Play nice,” turning and offering an explanation as to why her son was being a little…
