Motherhood―A Thankless Job!

This morning I had to pull myself out of the daze of Spring Break and admit it was time to plug back into my routine. I did the best I could to prepare the night before: I cleaned my room, I made sure my daughter’s favorite dress was in the wash for tomorrow, and I […]

What Do You Do All Day? (A Letter From A SAHM)

Yes, I get that question often. Being a stay-at-home-mom is not the cool thing to do in this culture. Society says that a woman must have children and immediately put them in daycare and go back to work. Well, I am here to say that without SAHM’s this world wouldn’t be the same. I have […]

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 […]

How to Be Still for God Amid a Noisy Life

Not long ago, I was in my van with a 15-year old friend of the family and my kids. She and I were chatting a bit, the radio was on, and each of my children were singing―not along with the radio. The three of them were each singing their own song. I look over to […]

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 […]

False Messages in Our Society Today: College Degrees

Picture this…..a group of women waiting for seating in a crowded restaurant immersed in conversation. Everyone is enjoying time away from the family and the much-needed break from mom duties when the conversation turns with one question. “So everyone here has a college degree right?” and before an answer could come from everyone, the slamming […]

The Perfect Gift

I remember how excited I felt when I found out I was going to be a mom! I took bits and pieces I loved from those who spoke into my life and configured this model of perfect mom for my children. It wasn’t a bad model but more of a testament to those who spoke into my life, […]

Freedom From Motherhood

When you think about freedom, what comes to mind? Maybe this great country that so many of us are blessed to live in, the United States of America? Or possibly the freedom that comes through Christ, of Jesus dying on the cross to take away our sins? Freedom that comes from not having to worry […]

Running YOUR Race with Endurance

Hebrews 12:1 NLT “Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a huge crowd of witnesses to the life of faith, let us strip off every weight that slows us down, especially the sin that so easily trips us up.  And let us run with endurance the race God has set before us.” I believe there […]
