Helping Your Kids Memorize

When your kids start school they have to memorize a variety of things.  They need to know their home address, home telephone number, spelling words and so much more.

I am going to share what I do to help my children remember their weekly memory verse.  You can use this technique for anything.
My children currently attend private school and every Monday in their homework packet is a memory verse from the Bible, they need memorized by Friday.

Don’t get too excited…

Donations for Baby Julian

An unfortunate situation occurred to a friend of mine and as a result, her less than 2 month old baby boy is in the hospital with serious injuries. The mother did not describe what exactly happened, so for her privacy, I will not mention it. As we all know, hospital bills stack up and the amount owed can be incredibly pricey. Because of the injuries, this tiny baby will most likely need lots of care for his future when he is released from the hospital. 

The family as well as friends…

10 Weeks Pregnant: Starting to Feel Like This is Real

I can’t believe we’re here: ten weeks pregnant. And while I know that anything can happen…we’re officially quarter of the way through this pregnancy.

It feels crazy to say that.

For the past several weeks, I haven’t really believed that I’m pregnant. I’m just…going through morning sickness. Counting the weeks.

But it’s starting to get more real. As each day goes by, it feels more and more like a pregnancy and less like I’m just sick. The more that I can relax, the more I…

It's 3 pm, and I can't remember what I'm supposed to be doing

For months, I've become interested in my son's memories: What will his first long-term memory be? What memories from this age will he retain?



But at some point, I've realized that I've started losing some of my memories. I…

Pregnancy Workouts: How You Can Be BUILT WITH CHOCOLATE MILK, too!

I’m not sure if I’ve made this abundantly clear or not, but I have a serious – and we’re talkingserious – obsession with all things chocolate. So when I heard that drinking lowfat chocolate milk is actually a way that athletes are refueling and rebuilding their bodies after strenuous workouts, you have to know that I was excited.

The first time I heard about this was during one of my early…

Bedtime Routine

Bedtime routines are important and also special.  I know as a parent there are some nights that are not as easy as other nights.  I try and remind myself before I know it they won’t want me to tuck them in bed and read them that same story book we have read 10,000 times.  There are those nights when I am tired and don’t want to do anything, I would like just to sit and relax.  As I watch my boys, I'm reminded they are growing so fast and won't always need me to pick out their pajamas and…

Ricky’s Birthday: Cowboys, Ponies and Trampolines Galore

So I went a little all out for Ricky’s birthday this year. Given how difficult the spring and summer were – and the fact that we barely had any barbeques this year – I just wanted to have a fun little celebration for my little guy turning two.

So…I may have ordered some ponies. But just for the day! Not to keep. Much as my husband would like to have a pony in the backyard.

And yes, that’s true. A hobby farm is definitely on his bucket list. But that’s a story for another…

Hair Video: The Quick Mom Up-do For Everyday Life

So, I have this thing during the week. I rarely wear my hair down, because it bothers me when it gets in my face while I’m working. I also have issues with actually styling my hair during the week, because…well, I’m short on time.

To help fix that, I’ve come up with several quick hair dos that make my mornings easier. And also prevent me from looking like the mom who literally just rolled out of bed to take her kid to school.

And because I love ya, I’m sharing one with you…

Five Reasons Why Adolescence Should Be Renamed The Art of Compromise

I have a 12 year old. He is not quite a “teenager” but for all intents and purposes, he acts like one (which is not all bad by the way – I happen to very much enjoy teenagers). I am deeply aware that I am firmly entrenched in early adolescence with my boy. Yesterday morning, he was tired and did not want to go to church. I have felt that way many times myself, and so I decided to allow him to lay low at home while the rest of us went to church. I told him, however, that staying home from church… Continue
