Those of us who live in North America and Western Europe are truly blessed. We have so many things to help us get through the day that they practically get unnoticed, such as plumbing, hot water, showers and for most, at least two decent size meals a day.
As women we have laws that protect us just like our male counterparts and the liberty to shape our own destiny. We also have what most people in the world don’t have, hope.
This four letter word has been used so much in our…Continue

Raising children is extremely hard! We moms (and dads) have our work cut out of us. Life with children is not easy, they get in trouble, they make messes, they’re dirty, but they also show us more love than any other person on the planet could. The truth is though, at certain times, we ALL can stand to be better parents. I have comprised a list of important things, I think we should remember to tell our children because we do get busy and even though they know we love them, we don’t always…Continue

It’s a small word that requires great conviction. It’s a short word with a lifelong lasting impact. It’s a negative that achieves much positive. It’s the power of NO.
In today’s permissive society, it’s YES that’s the ruling force of the day. Parenting books and articles are replete with philosophies, expounding on the importance of understanding your child and showing him endless love. This is crucial, of course. Yet, when parents take these philosophies too far, the result can be a…Continue

The most precious gift you've ever received is… your child. Along with this priceless gift, you've also received your most all-encompassing task of raising your child.
Of course, establishing proper discipline is easier said than done. In fact, the most common question asked by parents is “HOW DO I GET MY KIDS TO LISTEN?!” However, there is no “one quick-fix solution,” because so many puzzle pieces must fall into place in order for a home’s harmony to resonate. Presuming that the…Continue

We generally struggle to find activities that will occupy the kids during church services on Sunday. I lug a large tote bag filled with different items each week and pray that we can keep them entertained enough for me to actually listen during the meeting.…Continue

On Friday, I handed two cellophane bags to my kids and we took a walk. They each began collecting small items from nature. Jellybean was way less selective than Buddy. She also listened better to the instruction: "Don't dump your bag until I get a picture!" …

Picture the morning routine of Jamie with an elementary and middle school student, both boys, and throw in Attention Deficit…Continue

I am constantly amazed at how fast time is flying by. Especially now that I have children. It is incredibly hard for me because my oldest son will be registering for kindergarten soon...Where has the time gone? It was not too long ago that I was up all night with him just about every night for two years and working at a job outside of the home. How I wished for some rest...Then it happened, the night his new baby brother came home from the hospital (which happened to be my oldest…Continue

As a mom with donor conceived children I have been doing what I can to put the word out there that I am open to finding half-siblings for my children. I post on my blog and elsewhere the Sperm Donors ID that we used and up until recently I had found one half-sibling on the DSR and another mom contacted me through my blog that she also had a child using Sperm donor BGM 9581 from …Continue

This letter has been 3 years in the making and many times written and erased. It brings me to tears when I think of all I want to say to you and all I would ask if I meet you. It also puts the realization into the fore front that my children, these three beautiful creatures are not just part of me, but part of an unknown! Everyday I look at them and watch them grow I can clearly see me in them, but the other parts, the ones that are so obviously not me, I can only assume…Continue
