I've had to really step back and think about what I need … Continue reading Motherhood: Finding Refuge and Contentment

Since being married and raising children, I've put myself last. I assumed that's what you do when you get married and start having a family. I've gotten lost and I don't do much for myself because I'm too busy putting everyone else before me. You know how on a flight they say to put your … Continue reading Self Care Means Being Self Aware

Dear Not So Perfect Mom: Today you will not do everything right. Your children will get angry because you won't let them do something they really want to do.

But I've learned throughout my life that prayer changes things. I have been praying (along with many other folks) the storm would break apart, weaken, go … Continue reading Community Strong During the Storm
What's my purpose as a mom? Ever ask yourself these questions? I ask myself all the time. I'm the teacher, the counselor, the fashion coordinator, the housekeeper, the taxi driver, the "I feel like I'm everything to everyone" person. The struggle is real sometimes. I feel like I'm a broken record and constantly repeating the … Continue reading Mom Purpose
Well, the first week of school is done! And it was a good week. This year I've got a 7th grader, 5th grader, and 3rd grader. It's hard to believe how big they have gotten. Many people have reminded me to enjoy the younger years because you blink and they're in high school and heading … Continue reading New School Year
