Most women as they set their goals in life one of their top priorities is becoming a Mother. They create a life and begin to set molds on how they should be and the things they will need.

A provider, the head of the household, one who takes care of everything.

Drinking, Drugs and Your Teen: Tips for Discussion

I've been very open on this blog and in many other areas of my life about my struggles with drinking. My kids were center stage for some of the dumber things I did during that time, and I regret that so much. They finally stopped the barstool jokes, but it took a couple of years.

Praying for Your Children

Children are a gift and a blessing, I have dreamed of being a mom for as long as I can remember.  When I think of children the word legacy comes to mind.  In my opinion, the most important legacy we can leave to our children is a legacy of faith. Giving our children a legacy of faith outweighs leaving them houses or things although it's great to do both.  I read a quote…

Why You Need to Be Ready for Peer Pressure

Puberty is a Sneaky Thing

Teenagers, and all the interesting things that come along with them, sneak up on us before we even think we are ready. I barely blinked before Cameron turned 13. His voice is getting deep, he's taller than me, and what is food? It disappears before I see it. This kid is still writing the parenting manual at my house because, clearly, this book will never be done.

10 Ways to be the difference in your child falling or flying

Family Sitting on Grass Near Building

I recently came upon a meme of a sad girl with the words across the chest of the tee-shirt she wore which said: She’s standing on the line between giving up and seeing how much more she can take. Powerful right? It’s loaded with the need for us as parents to make sure that this “line” is not a thin line.

The case for intentional laziness

I am trying to get better at not doing things for my son.

For example: He likes to cook, so twice a month, he has to cook dinner for the family. While either my wonderful husband or I will act as his sous chef, we make sure he does the bulk of the work. This gets hard if he claims he has had a "long day"…
