For the Momma Who Needs to Know God Hears Her

I was in the middle of working on my first book to encourage moms when I received a text from my own momma. It was a photo of a page of her journal, and in her cursive handwriting was written, "I pray for the new baby that he/she would be a testimony to Your love and...

The Older I Get…

The Older I Get…

I am thirty-three years old. I am not yet where I'm going, but I'm also not where I once was. But here's the thing. The older I get the more I realize... I don't want a seat at every table. I don't want to be invited to the cool girls night out or the popular party. I...

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

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

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...

For the Momma Who Doesn’t Know What She Feels

I don't know about you, but I'm tired. I'm tired of sorting through facts and opinions and emotions. I'm tired of weighing all the options, finally making a choice, and then second guessing myself immediately. I'm tired of the tension and the stress out there in the...

For the Momma with BIG Questions Right Now

There used to be very few “BIG” questions in my life. Sure, there were some personal things that my husband and I were trying to make some decisions about, but in our day to day life? I had to decide what we were having for dinner and if my kids were spending too much...

For the Momma Struggling with Comparison

My kitchen is not one where you’ll find much design inspiration. There isn’t a trendy tile backsplash or gray and white quartz countertop. The appliances are likely original to the house. And I’m guessing the faucet is too. This house is a rental, and while it doesn’t...

Parenting in a Pandemic

Parenting in a Pandemic

So you’re parenting in the middle of a pandemic. Gah. None of us planned for this. Did we? It’s the worst. Being a mom on a regular Thursday was hard enough. Mom in the middle of a global crisis with civil unrest on a Thursday halfway through a year that has been...

For the Momma Who Needs to Speak Kindly to Herself

I was on the phone with my mom telling her about my day. “It sounds like you got a lot done,” she said. But I didn’t feel like her words were true. “It’s not a big deal. I didn’t get that much done. I have so much to do still,” I answered. I was completely unimpressed...

For the Momma Who Just Can’t Keep Up

I wander around my house and there is continual proof that I can’t keep up. I can’t always keep up with the dishes. I can’t keep up with the laundry-covered guest bed (even when I promise myself I’ll do one load a day.) I can’t keep up with the kids’ bathroom that...

For the Momma Who Feels Like the World’s Worst

I have this memory from when my kids were little... they had spent the morning playing with play doh and coloring and reading and dragging out all of their toys and FIGHTING. There had been tons of fighting. I had my four month old on my hip as I put away the dishes...

For the Moms Who Will Be Up Late This Week

It's 12:36 a.m., and I'm the only one awake in my house. I had to wait until everyone was asleep so I could sneak presents in from the car. I have a feeling this won't be the only night this week that I stay up well-after everyone else has gone to bed. There are just...
