Sometimes as a mom, I have to take what I can get. How about you?

I’m sitting here at my 27 week doctors appointment typing this — you know, that appointment where you drink the yucky orange drink and they do a blood sugar test. 🙂 I’m hungry and uncaffeinated (or am I decaffeinated??) because I wasn’t allowed to eat or drink anything! No coffee! Now I know that it Read more

Last Monday night at about 3:00 a.m., as moms often are, I was awakened by my two-year-old son.  Now he’s old enough to go back to sleep by himself, but I had not been home for his bedtime to tuck him in, so I agreed to rock him for a few minutes in the rocking chair.  As Read more

Yesterday evening I was in need of a Savior.  It was after dinner time, and I wasn’t feeling like myself.  My thoughts were not right.  They were accusing, negative, and fearful–laced with threads of hopelessness. The Enemy Doesn’t Play Fair I know this game. It’s one that our enemy likes to play. He likes to throw Read more

As parents we are given the responsibility of steering the family ship.  We map out a course, and we set sail. It is up to us to see that the wind and waves don’t knock us off course and that our children are kept safe and are thriving.  Storms may come, and we need to Read more

The Amazing Truth About Grace!

The Amazing Truth About Grace!featured

Share

Sometimes I wonder if my kids have trouble hearing. My husband wonders the same thing.  We tell them something and it’s like we haven’t said a thing.  They go on about what they were doing like they didn’t hear us.  So then we say it again. Sometimes we say it a little louder, and sometimes we Read more

One day while I was on vacation last summer, I found myself with a few minutes to spare.  I was alone, and the children were occupied. Without the normal household companions that call my name at home (like Laundry and Dishes), I decided to watch a little something on Netflix just for fun. All of a sudden, I noticed a little guilty feeling Read more
