Jesus in the Mess

Friday, October 25th, 2013

It was Thursday afternoon just after lunch… I was busy clearing half-eaten chicken nuggets and cheese sandwiches from the table. My dishwasher was full of clean dishes that needed to be put away and my sink was full of dirty dishes that needed some serious attention. Sandwich crusts, bread crumbs, empty cheese wrappers, and juice…

A Pocket Full of Memories

Monday, October 21st, 2013

“Mommy….” “Just a second baby.” “Mommy…” “Hang on… mommy is almost done.” “Mommy, do you have a pocket?” “What?” I barely look up from my phone to see what trinket my tiny 2 year old wants me to store for her. “Do you have a pocket, mommy?” “Yes, baby. I have a pocket. What do…

My Promise for Today

Friday, October 4th, 2013

I don’t know what I imagined being a momma would be like…but this was certainly not it. The screaming fits for a pink sucker that we do not have in the pantry. The great, big, from the depths of his soul tears for the green light-up shoes instead of the red ones. The frustrations of enormous…

When Love Runs

Tuesday, October 1st, 2013

“Mommmmaaaaa!!!” There is terror in his voice. I jump up and stumble towards the door bashing my thigh into the footboard of our bed. I put my hands on the doorframe to steady myself and open my eyes for the first time. Thunder is crashing outside, and the wind is shrieking. MOOOOmmmmaaa!! He is crying…

That’s Where Mommy Was…

Monday, September 30th, 2013

I push my babies on the swings in our backyard almost every night. Over the last few months, we have spent hours on those swings. I push, and they giggle and chat and sing and kick their little feet pretending to run through the air. I wouldn’t trade the time that we have spent in…

What I Wish They Had Told Me Before I Had My Baby

Saturday, September 14th, 2013

The warm sun shone through the nursery window as I rocked my 5 day old in a plush aqua colored glider. I had rocked in that chair for weeks before my son arrived hoping he might become accustomed to the feel of it. I thought that maybe if he got used the gliding motion while…

A Lesson on Beauty

Tuesday, September 10th, 2013

*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…

Raising Greatness – Parenting With Love

Sunday, September 8th, 2013

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…

To My Sweet Boy After Your First Day of Preschool

Thursday, September 5th, 2013

To my sweet boy after your first day of preschool… What a fun day you had! You were so brave, too. You haven’t been away from momma much… And other than a few close friends and family you definitely haven’t been around many other kids. No daycares for you… No big play groups or mommy…

Hope After Miscarriage

Sunday, September 1st, 2013

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

Friday, August 30th, 2013

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…

To Women Who Have Chosen Abortion – I Am Sorry

Tuesday, August 27th, 2013

I cannot tell you all of the things that had to happen to bring me to a place of deep sorrow on a night last fall, but I can tell you that my heart was forever changed in a moment. Growing up in an evangelical Christian home, I have always had a “pro-life” position on the…

It really got my creative juices flowing, and I cannot tell you how many times I wanted to stop my timer! It was super fun and reeeeally hard not to edit! Here…

Momma’s Hardest Lesson

Tuesday, July 16th, 2013

I measure my babies on the back wall in my bathroom. They love for me to put their little feetsies up against the trim board, hold their arms by their sides and take my special marker to make a dot just above their heads to show them how much they have grown. My son has…
