Saturday, December 10th, 2016

Have you seen it come across your newsfeed yet? I have. The next movie in the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy, Fifty Shades Darker, releases in just a few months, and the trailer is already being shared across social media sites. I’m not waiting until February when the movie releases to talk about this, because…

For Every Wife Waiting For Her Husband to Change

Wednesday, October 26th, 2016

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

Sunday, October 23rd, 2016

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…

Marraige After Kids

Holding My Husband’s Hand Changed Our Marriage

Friday, August 19th, 2016

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,…

Beware of Quicksand: How One Stranger’s Comment Changed My Marriage Forever

Monday, March 21st, 2016

I called my husband to ask him a quick question. I knew that he was busy at work, but I hoped my short conversation wouldn’t be too much of an inconvenience. I was wrong. He was right in the middle of an important project. My call had not only taken his attention, it had added…

You Figured it Out

Monday, March 14th, 2016

They sent you home with this little life. There was no instruction manual or easy user guide. There wasn’t a cheat sheet. All you had was your baby and your best judgment and God’s endless grace for the new mom. But you figured it out. You figured out what each cry meant. You figured out…

To The Mommas Who Made It And The Ones Who Didn’t Make It To Church This Morning

Sunday, March 6th, 2016

  I’ve been known to joke that on the seventh day, God rested… and moms everywhere wondered what that would be like. Let’s be honest, I’m all for rest. Rest is so important. But I’m also a mom of a 6, 4, and almost 2 year old, and those restful moments aren’t always a reality.…

I Don’t Think I Can Do This

Wednesday, March 2nd, 2016

  She was on the other side of the wall in the next room. I couldn’t hear what the nurses were saying or her husband or friends. I couldn’t hear what words her family might have spoken to assure her. I couldn’t hear the calm words of the doctor or the likely beeping of the…

To the Mom With the Cozy Coupe in Her Living Room

Friday, January 22nd, 2016

There has been a red Fisher Price Cozy Coupe parked in my living room for the last five years. We bought our first little plastic car when my oldest son turned one. He enjoyed climbing inside and eating his snack and putting his drink in the cup holder in the back. For the most part,…

Doing Better Than You Think

Momma, You’re Doing Better Than You Think

Wednesday, December 9th, 2015

I stood there in the middle of the elementary school crying. As she told me about what had happened on the playground, I just couldn’t help it. I couldn’t keep back the tears. I had dropped Kolton off at school this morning just like every other morning (except this morning we weren’t the last ones…

To the Momma of the Strong-Willed Child

Monday, September 28th, 2015

I can’t remember where I saw you last. It might have been the grocery store – the place that most mommies dread – but the place you especially dislike visiting. There are too many opportunities for hard there. Hard as in, “No, we can’t have that thing you want today and there isn’t anything I’m…

To My Husband Now That I’m Mommy

Saturday, September 26th, 2015

Maybe I should have said this a long time ago. Maybe this is the heart behind many of my other writings. Maybe I should have just found a few minutes to put into words what my heart has wanted to say for a while now. So, to my sweet husband, a few things I want…

I Will Call You Loved

Monday, June 1st, 2015

  On Monday, Vanity Fair released the cover of their latest edition depicting a photograph of Bruce Jenner with a caption, “Call me Caitlyn.” The internet is already buzzing as people weigh in on the article and everything that it means for our culture and society. As I was scrolling through my newsfeed on Facebook,…

Momma’s First Mother’s Day

Thursday, May 7th, 2015

Hey, Momma? There are a few things that I want to tell you. I just don’t have the words… yet. We’re still figuring this out – you and me. The early mornings and the long nights are hard. I know that you’re tired…. ALWAYS tired. Even on the nights when we both get a little…

The Day My Husband Bought Me a Little Black Dress

Thursday, April 16th, 2015

“I want to buy you a LBD (little black dress) for our trip to Colorado. Any input?” The text message from my husband flashed across my phone. He was working out of town, and I had just gotten three babies in bed by myself. I was tired. No. I was exhausted. I had been on…
