Recently I had the privilege of taking Illy out on a date. We'd been talking about it for a while and were long past due for an outing, but there always seemed to be something else going.

No BOYS allowed! ;) This time, however, I wanted to do something special and…Continue

They operate a shelter every Tuesday night and provide lunches for the next day. There are many PADS programs available all over with some even supplying permanent housing and supportive services for their…Continue
It had been a while since the last time Illy and I had gone on a date. Sure, we'd done things together as a family, but it wasn't concentrated time with just us. We checked out the calendar, selected a date, and put our names in the box. This was our date and Nothing was going to change that... hopefully. Well, the day finally arrived and, although I was already tired from a full day out with all three…Continue

I honestly don't know where the time has gone, but apparently, I blinked, and my kids are old enough to have the "sex talk" in school. I know -- crazy, right??!!!! Yep, the wonder of the ol' reproductive system has currently been the hot topic of fifth grade…Continue

As our blog has grown, so has our readership and because of that, we want to share the ones that, to this day, are still our favorites.…

Taboo. Plague. Stay-away-from-her were the thoughts and feelings I had while going through the most unfortunate of relational events - divorce. Not only is divorce devastating and painful, when kids are involved, the pain is indescribable. I decided to turn my pain into something productive - an event to encourage other mothers to find resilience in their inner and outer beauty. Beauty is power! Yet beauty is the very thing we let go of during and after divorce. This does not have to be…Continue
