For me personally, this created some anxiety for me 1st pregnancy. I…Continue

Several years ago, I began leading the children’s ministry at the church where my hubby and I attended at the time. We were in a small church, so I usually only had a handful of students. However, no matter the size of my class, it was important to me to give them all a solid…Continue

You’ll never be a rich brat. Mainly because we’ll probably never be rich enough to make you a rich brat, but you’ll be rich in laughter, adventures, and great memories of your parents loving each other. That alone will probably make you richer than all your friends.
You’ll never be the cool kid who throws epic parties. In fact, you’ll probably never be the cool kid, period. You’ll be the weirdo whose mom must know every single person in attendance and their parents. The kid who has to…Continue

Jesus said we should become as little children in order to be admitted into his Kingdom. Do you think his directive included a free pass for unbridled expression regardless of our age? Can you imagine if, as adults, we could speak out exactly how we feel unhindered by…Continue

I do not like limits in my life. At almost 28 I finally realize that there isn’t any and I can set any goals I wish, achieve them the way I prefer to choose, dream big and enjoy my life to the fullest. But for a couple of days I’m having an ongoing conversation with my mother over Skype about how important the limits are when you are growing up.
My mother did a great job. Modern parenting would most likely disagree with more than half of things that my parents were practicing, but to…Continue

When Elijah brought home the flyer for a “Me and My Gal” night at his school, I admit – at first I dismissed it as something I didn’t particularly want to do. I doubted that he even paid any attention to the note about a glow-in-the-dark themed…Continue

This is also the time when your kid prefers more privacy and seclusion from you. It is a pretty helpless state but with many…Continue
We've all felt it at some point. You took that last bite of food even when your pants begged you to stop. You told someone 'no' knowing you could have said 'yes'.

[what really happened] you sprayed the house with Febreeze, moved the basket of clothes to a different spot in the room, and shoved the toys in the closet. Your secret is safe with me. Eventually, our stomachs settle and…Continue
