When You Feel Like a Bad Mom

We all have those days as moms where we totally lose control, forget an appointment, pass-over the much-needed shower and go to the store anyway, and even hide under the covers with the onset of another sibling tirade. Some times though the circumstances aren’t within ourselves but the choices and actions of our children causing […]

The Many Ways Moms Influence Their Daughters

I remember my littlest being my biggest imitator. She would walk around the house in her prized “clippy clops” with her purse and play phone in hand. A determined little one who had places to go and things to get done, she simply needed a car ignition big enough to fit the toy keys she […]

Is Spanking Your Children Biblical?

My son was arching his back and throwing a massive, ridiculous fit in the middle of a restaurant the other day and my first response was to grab his chubby, obstinate little hand and look him square in the eyes, “Cade, I have to spank you if you keep it up.” And within a few […]

Confessions of a Mom: Who Hates to Clean

As I lay me down to sleep I know my clothes are in a heap I told myself I would get to that But my best intentions again fell flat The dirty dishes reappear each day The counters are in constant disarray I send up a prayer for new resolve Hoping my mindset will evolve […]

In the Spirit of Christmas…

riMy children are getting to the age where they are noticing all of the Christmas excitement.  It is so exciting for us as parents, especially since Christmas is our favorite holiday.  As much as I love looking at the beautiful lights, decorating my tree with my beloved ornaments, and let’s not forget finding just the […]

We returned some books to the library and checked out some more. Then, we proceeded to go to our local grocery store for a few essentials. As I was […]

Brotherly Love

I am the mommy of three little boys. They are precious to me. I have a five year old, a four year old, and a 17 month old. I never, in all my dreams, would have thought I would be a “boy-mom”. I also never thought it would be the coolest thing I have ever […]

Passing Down Loyalty

Proverbs 22:6 NIV “Train up a child in the way he should go; even when he is old he will not depart from it.” My sweet strong-willed two and a half year old princess is not only a toddler, but a bit of a late communicator.  That being said, we are experiencing LOTS of tantrums […]

The Wisdom in Our Priorities

When I look at my children, as I speak to them I desire for them to not only hear my words but to know my heart behind them.  My heart is for them to learn from me as I guide them and continue to look at me with unending trust as if I know everything that is […]

What does HOPE look like to you?

I love how Joyce Meyer describes hope as “During a storm, Hope gives us the ability to look at things as they are and still be confident that something better is coming.” Each day we have a choice to make as we wake up and face internal and external distractions, emotions, situations, etc: We can […]
