For the Mom Who Doesn’t Think She Can Do This

Saturday, December 21st, 2019

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…

For the Momma Who is Stronger than She Knows

Monday, December 16th, 2019

You are strong. I imagine you don’t usually feel as if that word fits you. …stressed tired overwhelmed anxious exhausted… Maybe it seems those words better fit how you feel most days. And maybe they do. Maybe you pour and give and never feel quite filled back up. You don’t feel strong. I get it.…

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…

“I’m Sorry This is So Frustrating, Mom”

Sunday, March 12th, 2017

“I’m sorry this is so frustrating, Mom,” my seven year old son said as he hugged me. I should have thanked him, but instead I tried to correct him. “I’m not frustrated. I’m fine.” But even I didn’t believe my short tense words. I wasn’t fooling anyone. He paused and then asked, “Then what are…

I was standing in our kitchen after tucking all three of my kids into bed for the night when my oldest son, now seven, came out of his room. I knew the moment his brother and sister heard him out of bed they would follow. “Perfect,” I thought. I had just gotten them all quiet…

More Pancakes Less Internet Politics

Monday, January 30th, 2017

Recently, the internet feels like a really big crowded room where everyone is shouting. “This is what I think!” “You’re wrong!” “How can you think that way?!” “What are we going to do?!” “What are you so worried about?!” “How are you not worried?! This is a disaster!” Social media used to feel like a…

You are a D@#$ Good Mom

Monday, January 16th, 2017

My five year old daughter, Kadence, has this mirror we hung in her room a few birthdays ago so she could pretend to have her own dance studio. (It was in her brief ballerina phase.) I don’t know what it is about that mirror, but she’s always sassier when she stands in front of it.…

Tuesday, January 3rd, 2017

Tell me if this sounds familiar. You had a baby. Maybe a year ago, maybe a few years ago… maybe many years ago. And when “we” became “three,” something changed. Okay, a lot changed. Look, I don’t know the circumstances at your house, but I know baby likely meant you didn’t get to connect the…

Thursday, November 26th, 2015

“The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.” John 1:14 You know, when I think about Jesus, I often think about how available He was. The Gospels aren’t full of stories…
