Three years ago, I gave birth for the third time. But that third time would also end up being my last I never planned on the 3rd being the final, so knowing that I, most likely, will never do the baby years again has really shown me how to cherish them. I’m sad [...]
This 3rd child, first daughter, she’s so different than those boys! She’s a girl, really, really a girl. I’ve shown you how she tries to be like mommy in the kitchen and has a little mama’s heart, but she’s so much more than just my little shadow.
I know that God has big plans for her [...]
“Money doesn’t grow on trees.” Who else heard that saying during their growing up years? Were you given any explanation of how we earn money? I knew my dad worked and he made money and that we had enough. However, I also know that even into my young adult years I was still far too [...]
I’m not a new mom, but I am a fairly new girl-mom! Rachael wasn’t the first child I’ve potty trained, but the two ahead of her were boys and that’s all the experience I had.
The boys were more difficult to train and Eli definitely does things on his own time. I learned with him that [...]
I’ve posted before on some of my solutions for keeping a toddler/preschooler busy during school time with older kids, but I’ve recently had to rethink my game plan.

I woke up this morning as the mother of a seven year old.
That was the sound of me fainting….

As we are settling in to our new adventure of living in Ohio, we are also welcoming in a new season of life.
Living in Ohio brings with it a new home, new city, new region of the US to explore, new friends and new co-workers for Michael, but this move signifies a lot more for [...]
I’m still here and definitely haven’t forgotten any of you.
The last two weeks have been incredibly difficult for me as a mom and I’m happy that Michael is on his way home from Australia. I am thankful he was able to be with his family during this time, but am definitely excited to have [...]
“Mama, come me” she says as she tugs on my arm, pulling me toward the stairs.
“Baby deeping*” she says as she gently pats her baby. Yes, that’s a dish towel.
“Bankie, baby, mama?” She says, asking me to get her a real blanket for her baby. I dig out a flat fold cloth diaper that is [...]
Have you ever gone through a time when you just knew the enemy was at work in your life? Well, I’m there right now.
I have had such a difficult time recently with feeling so unqualified to mother these treasures.
I have been unkind and have not shown the Father’s heart to my children of late. It [...]
