How to Make Long Island Tea

Long island tea is a classic drink that you can get in almost any bar, a type of cocktail so old that nobody’s completely sure who even first created it. Despite its name, it’s not actually made using tea: in fact, it’s not even made in a similar way to tea…

5 After-School Snack Ideas for Busy Parents

As a busy parent, finding it easy to make snacks for the kids is essential. After a long day, the last thing you want to do is bake cookies.

Share a little something about yourself with other moms.
Blessed wife. Proud empty nester Mom. Work-in-process Christian. Sarcasm aficionado. Sappy soul whisperer. Sports junkie. I’ve run the gamut as a working, work-from-home, stay-at-home, and now empty nester. God’s kept me honest by pointing out the state of my heart, which is a template for the state of my demeanor, which is a mold for the meter of my faith, which determines the end product of my mothering. Sometimes you feel like a nut. Sometimes you don’t.

My journey of faith has been replete with profound wonder, humbling failure, painful diversions, and glorious blessings. Motherhood has stirred my soul, moved my heart, awakened my spirit, and filled my life with unending joy. My abiding love for Christ makes it impossible for me to keep my mouth shut about all He has done for me. My blog aims to help moms discover and rediscover God’s involvement in their busy lives through my candid, crazy mom stories and a dash of biblical insight.
What is your blogging philosophy?
My blog invites Christian mothers to discover and rediscover God's involvement in their busy lives through candid personal stories with compelling biblical insight and a touch of thoughtful humor. My hope is to connect through heartstrings and share in the love of motherhood.
I have been blogging since...

Over the years I’ve talked to moms and dads whose feelings about the organic transformation run up and down the emotional gamut. The spectrum is anywhere from…


Love Letter To My Sis-in-Law About To Have Baby #5

Posted on July 4, 2016 at 9:27am 0 Comments

Dear Amazing Mom, Beautiful Sis, Faithful Friend, Devoted Wife to My Brother & Loving Aunt to My Kiddos,

Can I be you when I grow up?

Sure, I’ve got you by eleven years and your current four children are age 7 and under, while my three are 18 and over.

So what?

Age and family dynamic are relative. We’re all “growing up” each day. The journey of life is timeless. Wisdom merely represents a singular point on a static spectrum.

Moms out there need to…


No one tells you how you are going to feel when…
