  • Talking to Our Children about Good Friday

    I will be the first to admit that I struggle with how to talk about this beautiful faith with my son. I’m afraid to say too much, not wanting to scare or confuse him. I’m afraid to say too little, fearing that oversimplifying these beautifully complex, painful, and miraculous stories will turn them into trite and meaningless fairytales in his mind. But I try anyway, fearing every time that I’m doing it wrong, but knowing that it is far too important to just stay silent. Read More
  • What does Easter look like for you?

    What do your holidays look like? Have you mastered the happy medium between driving-yourself-crazy and doing-absolutely-nothing? Do you have more ideas pinned on Pinterest than you could ever hope to accomplish? Or, do you make reservations at a local restaurant and call it good? Read More
  • Just in Time for Easter – DIY Girl’s Tutu!

    My daughter is approaching 16 months and has never owned a tutu.  With the arrival of spring, the reappearance of the sun, and the upcoming Easter holiday I decided it was the perfect time to fix that.  After all, every little girl needs to be introduced to the world of fashion without function.

  • Quick decorating tricks & clutter busters

    As a mom on a budget, I'm all about finding a thrifty way to turn my house into a comfortable, welcoming environment.  I love browsing decor magazines and gleaning good ideas so I've gathered my top ten list (plus a bonus idea) of fun tweaks you can accomplish with a few simple supplies that won't cost an arm and a leg, and less than an hour.  (Most of my ideas literally take minutes.) Plus you don't have to be the superwoman of crafts (I'm sure not!) to make these happen.  In no particular order, here are my favorites! Read More

  • I Don't Get To Control Everything

    I knew I had a long night ahead of me. You see, my beautiful baby boy, the one that melts my heart with his sweet, twinkling smile, is teething and is a rosy cheek crying mess in the middle of the night. Every part of my body wanted to climb back into my soft bed and drift off to sleep…but I knew my job as a mama was just beginning. Read More
  • My 4 Minute Exercise

    Today, the 45 minute window I had planned for my exercise time after work got bumped out because I ended up getting stuck in a meeting longer than anticipated. Instead, I went straight to take my daughter to her 9 month check up, then home to play with the kids for a bit before running back out to a dinner commitment I had made weeks ago. I made it home to put my son to bed, kissed my daughter good night as she was already sleeping in her crib and then made my way downstairs. I sat on the couch and then thought, some exercise is better than none, right? So, here is what I took 4 minutes to do: Read More
  • Tomorrow Girl - My Personal Superhero

    There is a super hero who visits me. She comes out at night and speaks to me as I’m drifting off to sleep. She’s full of enthusiasm and plans. Her name is … TOMORROW GIRL. Read More
  • All SAHM's Have Rich Husbands

    And Other Assumptions People Make

    Assumptions breed jealousy and judgment in our own hearts and build walls around the hearts of others. Authenticity becomes impossible and we can't share our brokenness with each other because we become too focused on living a life that others will assume is perfect - because we have to live up to the perfection we're falsely assuming in everyone else's lives.

  • The Secret of Waiting

    You alone get to control your attitude in the wait. But in order to get to that place where bitterness has lost it's hold, anger has melted away, and you can lift your head enough to pour out encouragement to others, you must do one thing. It's not a big thing, but at the same time, it's everything. Read More
