College Planning- The Prerequisite Course

Every job has its parts that we could live without.  For me, there is a significantly large part of my job that I am not a fan of. I mean, I really, really don’t care for it. College counseling.  Its not for me and is by far, my biggest pet peeve.  Which is unfortunate, because it takes up a large chunk of my time I feel would be better spent doing other things.

Let me begin with an…

Great Expectations

I often wonder how we, as women, survive.  I know that I am not unusual, but I spend the majority of my time worrying about what I have to do, longing to do the things I want to do, and guilting myself out when I don’t get things done, because I was doing what I wanted to do for myself.

Why do we do this to ourselves?  Life is complicated enough without adding more and more layers of complexities.  Somehow, society has painted a picture of what the perfect woman should be.  She should…

Alone vs Lonely (Part II)

While writing "All Alone" earlier this week, my fingers actually kept tap-tap-tapping away. And I looked up, and the sun had not only set, it was pitch dark outside. And a whole story had poured out. The post was so long I had to chop it in half, wrap up my thoughts and finish it in this post.



These past few months I've been thinking a lot about what "loneliness" and "being alone" are. 'Tis typical for me every…

The importance of clarification

As the mother of three children, I am constantly reminded of the importance of clarification.  I have found that I have to be very clear about what I mean when I say something.  For instance, my idea of clean your room is apparently quite different from the definition that my kids have. To get the results I want, I… Continue

ROTARY-PHONE GOD

You know what?? Back in the day, rotary phones didn't have speed-dial or fast connection. No matter what, when making a call, we had to patiently DIAL ten digits, one-by-one & wait for the caller to pick up. As far as expecting immediate answers, rotary phones inadvertently taught us patience. Today, when I'm trying to call God, do you think I'm expecting fast-speed, immediate cell-phone service out of Him? Perhaps God is still taking calls His way...i.e., the rotary way. Maybe what I… Continue

Letting the Chips Fall Just Might Surprise You!

iStock_000004077514XSmall I have a story to share with you from a mom who I coached nearly 9 months ago. She sent me a message on Facebook the other day and told me her dilemma..... her son left that morning for school and ended up forgetting his soccer cleats for the big game after school. Now for some moms, this means dropping whatever you have going and running to bring your child the forgotten item in… Continue

Are You Treating Your Kids Like They Are Stupid?

It has been an interesting few days at our house since I picked up the book by Dr. Kevin Leman, “Have a New Kid by Friday.” Now I really truly HATE the title – I think it is rather misleading, but in any event I agree with nearly everything in it. It goes along the same lines as the… Continue
