Couples Surviving the Holiday Season

With Thanksgiving around the corner and Christmas quickly following I want to encourage you to stay connected with your spouse this upcoming Holiday season.  I know it is easy to get caught up with all the shopping and get-togethers that life becomes even busier than it already is in the next few months.  It is easy to skip a date night because of school Christmas plays, family and office get togethers and even turning date night into Christmas shopping for the kids, which is fine as long…

My Birth Story-Baby #3

With my third pregnancy I learned in a greater way that each pregnancy and delivery is different.  I learned not to be in a hurry and to truly rest in God.  I had a great pregnancy with no morning sickness or complications, but because my other two boys were born before there due date, I thought for sure my third born would be born early too.   I planned and took time off work well…

Preparing Your Children

I find that my kids like to know what is planned for the day and week.  Even at a young age, ages 3, 5 and 7 like their mother who likes to know what is happening.  They do a lot better when they know the plan.

Family and Holidays

When you get married, it is not only a merging of two lives but two families.  With the upcoming holidays approaching have you discussed where you will spend Thanksgiving and Christmas?

My Birth Story-Baby #2

We were so excited to find out we were expecting baby #2, we were excited for another blessing and excited that our son Diego would be a big brother.  I knew what a wonderful experience God had blessed me with my first pregnancy I started to stand on God’s Word and knew this delivery would be even easier now that I knew what to expect.  I used my “Supernatural Childbirth” book by Jackie Mize, every day, listened to the audio as often as I could.  I listened while I worked at my father…
