Conquering Our Fear of Social Media

Up until a little over 3 years ago, I had a huge fear of Social Media. I guess you could say that I was a little old fashioned. Now old fashioned isn’t bad, but I guess it depends on just how far back in time you want to go. At some point we are put into a position to choose whether we want to launch into the future with the rest of the world or stay stuck in a wonderful memory of things gone by. I didn’t understand this silly need to post every little thing one was doing at home, on the road..in the bathroom…well you get the picture! Read more...

Remember, You'll Always Be Mom

I’ve been so excited this week for all the kids to go back to school. No, not because I want to get rid of them, I just know they are ready. Ready to get back into the swing of things..sports, friends, clubs. Dare I say...school work! All three of my kids are in new schools this year. My son is going off to college and I can’t tell you how many people have asked me how I’m feeling about that. There’s something about letting go of our kids, letting them be all that God created them to be..on their own. Something that a Mom's heart shouts with a joy cry…he’s a man now. It doesn’t happen over night you know, there are little milestones along the way. Then you reach a point when it’s just time. Time to say goodbye. Not forever, but to let them go and make their own way. Read more...

Creating Joy

Last night I texted all 7 of my kids. Oh ya, I’m pretty high tech. I don’t know why but I had come to a blank when trying to think up something to post about! Now if you know me, I like to chat it up so it seemed so crazy that I just couldn’t think! I asked my kids to help me and send me a quick answer to this question: Only a couple of kids answered back. I wondered why..it seemed like a simple question. Then I thought..I’m such a nut in my everyday life, how could anyone pin point just ONE thing I’ve done… Crazy and ridiculous is just part of who I am! I love to create my own kind of joy! Yep God and I can think up some pretty crazy things to do sometimes. Life can just be so hard, but God has given me a joy that goes beyond the everyday. Let’s just say that it spills over in some pretty unusual ways…like maybe the time…. Read more...

Meet The Moms: Shari Lynne

I always say that God wanted me to have so many children because I needed so much work. The truth is, I did and I still do need much work! I can’t think of a job that has caused me to grow more in the Lord than being a Mom and a wife. One thing I know for certain: God does indeed restore the years the locusts have eaten away! God has created YOU for amazing things. So let’s encourage one another and build each other up! I look forward to getting to know you! Read more...
