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 baby…

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…

She Might Not Tell You, But I Will… The Joke Is Still Over

Sunday, March 29th, 2015

In 2014, I wrote this article,– and it spread like wildfire. I heard from people all across the globe who agreed, and others who used some pretty strong language to tell me how much they disagreed. But out of all of it, I noticed one thing. It started a discussion. And sometimes? All it takes…

Christian Women and Christian Grey

Tuesday, February 10th, 2015

Here is my disclaimer, friends. This article is not PG rated. It might make you blush. It will probably stir some feelings of either strong agreement, or perhaps strong defense, but no matter how you feel by the end of this, I need you to know one thing going in… If I didn’t care, I…

My Body Broken for You

Thursday, January 22nd, 2015

I had this mission. Lose all the baby weight. It seemed like a simple goal. Nursing helped. Watching my sugar intake helped. Eating healthy and getting exercise… it all helped. Even though I should be clear that my version of exercise is chasing three kids around. Well, two and a newborn. I have this friend…

To the Mom Who Vacations at Target

Sunday, January 18th, 2015

Before I begin, I need to say this. Dear Target, thank you on behalf of moms everywhere. You just get us. “I think we are out of trash bags,” I said one evening to my husband after he came home from work. We had a three month old baby boy who was nursing, and I…

To The Momma at Chick-Fil-A

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

I saw you come in with your sweet kids the other day – one on your hip and one around your leg. I watched as you ordered your lunch, and then set the baby on the counter to dig through the diaper bag for your wallet. I wanted to cheer for you as they handed…
