Confession of a Mom: Who Yells

“If you would just listen the first time, I wouldn’t have to yell!” If I had a nickel for every time I have said that phrase. But yet, they still don’t listen, and here I stand feeling guilty, because once again I yelled. I am not judging those who yell. I just confessed, I am a […]

Cursing and The Power of Our Words

“For the word of God is alive and powerful.  It is sharper than the sharpest two-edged sword, cutting between soul and spirit, between joint and marrow.  It exposes our innermost thoughts and desires.” Hebrews 4:12 How true it is that what is in your heart comes through in your words and tone.  When you are […]

I remember being told, pornography is just a “normal” thing that men (and women) […]

Confession of a Mom Who Hates to Cook

I did it again! When I say again, it means it’s a normal occurrence in our home. It was a rushed evening so grabbing a box of Hamburger Helper, a pound of FROZEN (not thawed) meat, I began preparing a meal for my family. I dropped the frozen hamburger in the pan, turned the heat […]

Learning to Trust God with Your Kids

“The Lord directs the steps of the godly. He delights in every detail of their lives. Though they stumble, they will never fall, for the Lord holds them by the hand” Psalm 37:23-24 One of the hardest things for me as a mom is realizing that while I’ll always be called mom, there comes a […]
