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…

It’s Okay.

Wednesday, November 5th, 2014

It’s not your fault, you know.   It really isn’t. No matter how many times you have thought it. No matter how many times someone told you. It’s not your fault. You know exactly what I’m talking about. Don’t you? You know exactly what your “it” is. It is that thing that hangs over your…

Little Girls and Their Mommas

Thursday, October 30th, 2014

“You’re a mean momma!” She shouted as she pushed her tiny thirty pound body away from mine. They were hurtful words, but I knew she didn’t mean them. I mean, she did, but… she didn’t really. On this day, I wouldn’t let her have another juice box before bed. “Sister. Momma doesn’t want you to…

Friday, October 24th, 2014

He grabs his boots, or his briefcase, or his suitcase – and He’s headed off to work. She’s busy making breakfast for the little ones already awake. The cereal spills across the kitchen floor just as the baby monitor lights up. Someone else needs her too. She pours milk into the bowl, steps over the…

Only Good Mommies…

Thursday, October 23rd, 2014

I used to think that good mommies were a group of women that did everything right. You know. Good mommies don’t yell. They have endless patience. Good mommies balance life at home and work and every other group/organization they or their kids are a part of. Good mommies have clean houses and do crafts and…

To the Momma Who Needs to Vent

Thursday, October 16th, 2014

“I just cleaned this house!” I sigh as I walk out of my bedroom and find a living room floor covered in toys AGAIN! NO! No No No! I’m not cleaning this mess again today. I’m not doing it! I’m not going to spend all day sorting through these toys to get them put away…

You’re Worth Your Own Attention

Thursday, October 9th, 2014

It was late… not like Tonight Show late… like infomercial late… like somewhere there is a farmer getting up to start his day late…. Like almost tomorrow late. And I hadn’t slept one bit. Don’t get me wrong here. My head had touched the pillow. It had touched the pillow many times, but it hadn’t…

Somewhere There Is a Woman…

Tuesday, September 30th, 2014

Somewhere there is a woman rocking a baby in the middle of the night. She is exhausted and tired, and as she rocks back and forth, she cries silently into his curly hair. His head tucked up under her chin, his chubby hands holding onto her, she holds him tightly and prays, “Lord, make me…

What Millennials Really Want from Church

Monday, September 29th, 2014

I am a millennial and I grew up in church. I lived church. Some of my earliest memories involve Sunday School lessons and nursery friend playdates. Some of my oldest friends to this day I made in church over 20 years ago. I have a ton of “behind the scenes” memories of the inner workings of…

The Day I Stopped Saying, “I Don’t Have Time”

Monday, September 15th, 2014

I bent down and kissed him on the cheek. His sister was holding one of my hands, and I was holding his new baby brother’s carseat with my other arm. “Love you, sweet boy. You have to go into your classroom now. I will be back to pick you up after school.” I turned to…

Because Let’s Be Honest, You Do More Than They Realize

Friday, September 5th, 2014

“Mommy, when I grow up, I want to be just like Daddy.” “Oh yeah? Which job do you want to have? Daddy does a lot of different things doesn’t he?” “I want to be ALL of them! I want to be a welder-man, and a firefighter-man, and a construction-man, and a city council-man, and a…

Don’t Give Up Hope – One Mom’s Message to Childless Women

Thursday, September 4th, 2014

Someone once called me a Mommy Blogger. I didn’t mind. After all, I am a Mommy and I blog, and the majority of what I write includes my children in some way. But, I guess I just never put myself in that category – and honestly, it used to be for a reason. I write…

Wedding Vows: Now That We are Parents

Tuesday, August 26th, 2014

I woke up this morning and wasn’t concerned about what I would wear to our fancy dinner tonight. I wasn’t worried about finding shoes or jewelry, or making sure that I had plenty of time to get my hair and makeup done. I didn’t look for roses or perfume or expect to see a card…

Raising Hope: How We Are Changing the World

Wednesday, August 13th, 2014

“I don’t want to play with her anymore!” “Bubba,” I calmly corrected, “It’s not nice to tell your sister that she can’t play with you. Can you please scoot over and let her play on the other side with her toys too?” Tears streamed down my daughter’s face as her brother’s words sunk into her…
