“You are NOT leaving this house like that!” Did your mom or dad ever say that to you? Do you say that to your child? As a parent, I try to let my kids dress themselves. I am not concerned if my daughter wants to wear a pink sequined shirt and bright yellow pants with a sparkling purple headband. I dressed odd as a child and I turned out just fine. (well…sort of) The main thing that I am concerned about is that they are modest, dressed appropriate for the weather, and comfortable. That was my parent’s approach as...

It is no secret that the last 11 months have been very challenging for me and my little family. When we moved to a new state, left behind family and friends, and started a new life in this small town, I struggled.  I knew it was what God wanted for us and knew we were supposed to be here. But I did not totally agree. I was like a kid being pulled into a doctor office, trying to be brave, but unable to hide the terrified feeling and tears of what is to come.

Was that really 4 years ago? WOW! Just. Wow! My son should start kindergarden this year, but we decided that he is not ready. His birthday is at the age cut off and he would...

Hope! It’s a powerful thing, But, do you know HOW powerful it really is? I read The Hop Quotient by Ray Johnston while on our family vacation last week. It was so nice to relax by the pool and enjoy this uplifting book. There were a few things that really jumped off the pages and into my heart!  Here are my thoughts on this christian book. Synopsis: Using seven...

“Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more important than food, and the body more important than clothes? Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? Who of you by worrying can add a single hour to his life?”-Matthew 6:25-27 So there it is! And yet, I still do it—WORRY! WHY?!?!
