I am on this strange journey of life. We are in a new place with new people and experiences. I am certain this is what God has planned in advance for us to do. I have faith. But I also wonder why it is hard. When faith is not easy, what do you do? There are so many lessons that come from this–having faith, obeying, trusting, obstacles, and more!I am reminded...

 Today I want to talk about a simple two-word phrase that has a lot more power than you might think. Did you know you can connect with others using the simple phrase, “ME TOO!”Think about a conversation with a four-year-old. When you say, “I am so cold”, and he turns looks at you and says “ME TOO!” He realizes he is not alone and someone else feels the same thing he does. You can both work on finding a solution, whether it be cuddling together or turning on the heater. At that moment there is a connection! Think...

Today I had several Google hangouts for work. So I did something different. I showered, put on make up, did my hair and put on real clothing. I made myself presentable. I was very productive and was less self conscience in our meetings. When my daughter got off the bus we had a conversation… Her Where did you go today? Me: No where. Why? Her: You’re all dressed up Me: Oh, I had some meetings today. Her: Oh. Ok. You look like you are on a fashion show or something. It was hysterical! Me on a fashion show? That is so funny! Keep...

Have you ever said to yourself: “What am I doing here?” OR “Why now?” OR “I don’t understand!” I have been saying that a lot lately. We moved to Louisiana in October. I can not believe it has only been 2 months! WOW it seems much longer! I miss home. I miss my friends. I miss our house. I miss my family. I miss everything! The hard thing is that the kids are sad too. I am trying to stay positive for them. Encouraging them to meet new people, make new friends and try new things. My problem is...

So you may have read that we moved. We moved from an area that we had been in for over 30 years to a brand new area where we do not know a soul. Back at home I knew that if I left the house I was going to run into someone that I knew. It was a guarantee! It didn’t mater where I was going! After living in a 20 mile radius for 30 years we knew everyone! At times it was annoying but usually I loved it. I would meet up with my church friends about once a week and my best friend several times a week. Coffee meet ups were my “me”...

I shared how I am working to find balance in being a work at home mom. When I was coming up with my list to help balance work and life I started thinking about another word: judgement. When you work from home you have certain people who so not “get it”. We really work! We work hard! When I started working full time on my site and was making a monthly income I started sending my youngest to preschool. I really contemplated over this! To my surprise it was great for us both! For a few hours a day I could focus on my work and...
