I hadn’t been divorced all of 3 months before I knew I needed to radically change the way I spoke to myself. To change the way I viewed life and love. To change the way I viewed myself. For so long I had looked in the mirror and spoken such ugly, hateful things to the girl […]

My morning starts with a prayer.  “God, you’re in control. Help me get through another day and remind me constantly that you’re in control. I trust you.  I love you. You’re in control.”  Then it’s time for my little pep talk.”You can do this.  You don’t need to find fulfillment in a man.  Through God’s grace, […]

It’s been three years since my last post. Wow. Does anybody even read this silly blog, anyway? Ha, I highly doubt it. So, why three years between postings?  Well, in three years, I had a baby (a homebirth, mind you, that was horrific and wonderful all at the same time), moved 2 days later, moved again […]

Last week I finished a month-long diet/fitness challenge with 22 other moms.  The idea comes from this book… Basically, you form teams and accumulate points for good behavior (healthy eating, exercising, losing weight, drinking enough water, implementing a new good habit, etc.) and are docked points for bad behavior (snacking, not sleeping enough, not breaking […]

It’s the end of the day and I’m tired.  And although I likely won’t be able to articulate this in the same way I’d be able to when my mind is fresh first thing in the morning, I just want to touch on something with you. I had someone text me this morning asking me for […]

My day away

I think every mom should have an occasional day away from all the demands of motherhood.  And last Saturday, I treated myself to just that.  I asked my husband if he would be on Dad Duty for the day and then I loaded up all my craft supplies and spent 6 glorious hours crafting away […]

The Lord God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone. I will make a helper suitable for him. Genesis 2:18 I came across an article yesterday talking about how same-sex marriage takes away from the uniqueness of gender and blurs the lines of who God created us to be.  I thought the article […]

Homeschool literature

I’m an avid reader.  Always loved books, always will.  God gave us such a magnificent thing by giving us the capacity to communicate via the written word.  Think about it for a second.  Reading allows us the opportunities to strengthen relationships, share our experiences, expand our knowledge, experience worlds that only the imagination can bring.  […]

Wowzers, what a month October has been!  I last posted on my birthday and since then my life has been beyond full.  Here’s what’s transpired since then…. Our landlord informed us he’s selling the house we’re renting. What does that mean for us?  Well, if you know me or follow my blog then you’re aware […]

Today I turn 30.  And today I celebrate. I celebrate who I am.  I celebrate who I was.  I celebrate who I will become. My 20’s were a whirlwind.  A tornado of activities that life threw my way. In my 20’s I…. Got married. By the saving grace of God, fought for my marriage and won […]
