Parenting drama (trauma??!!) aside for the moment, I’m relieved to have the chance to pass off the reins tonight & let someone else amuse you with their own parenting journey!

Have you ever been held hostage by a bad party?
Come on, tell the truth.:-)
You know the kind that has as much appeal as your last dental visit, and equally as numbing!
But, out of obligation perhaps to a co-worker, family member or friend, you stayed and endured it. Undoubtedly you made a mental note that the next time “Penelope” gives a party, you’ll definitely be M.I.A. for the R.S.V.P. (Been there, done that).
Don’t get me wrong; it’s always a… Continue

….just so ya know, ya little punk! Thankfully, I’ve done a few things right as a Mom, one of which is to keep my kids talking. I make a real effort at ensuring they feel comfortable coming to me, because one of these days, it just may save their life.

That's no longer the case.I want God near.

Research shows that participation in musical games has many positive effects on kids.
When kids sing, they organize vowels and consonants in a rhythmic pattern which helps to build language and vocabulary skills.
Musical games also help to develop kids' fine and gross motor skills, resulting in better coordination. Putting movement and music together uses both sides of the brain.
Of course there's other reasons to introduce music into your kids' lives: It's just… Continue

“God allows us to experience the low points in life in order to teach us lessons we would not learn in any other way. The way we learn these lessons is not to deny the feelings but to find the meanings underlying them.” ~ Stanley Lindquist
To the joy of most children on a traditional school calendar, the 2009-2010 scholastic year is, once again, drawing to an end. In five and a half more weeks, according to one of my sons, ‘jail will let out.’ That mere comment, happily uttered… Continue

Call me old-fashioned, but a clean home does wonders for me. And not for just me, for my family.
At this stage in our lives, a time when four out of five of us are at home nearly all hours of every day, a clean home keeps us sane. Daily cleaning provides us with a sense of peace, routine and respect for our home and ourselves.

Jabez cried out to the God of Israel, "Oh that you would bless me
and extend my territory! Let your hand be with me, and keep me from
harm so that I will be free from pain." And God granted his request, 1 Chronicles 4:10
him more honorable than the rest of his brothers...the pain of his past
was not like the others. His Mother...bore him in great pain...hence
the meaning of his name. And many of us… Continue
