This is a totally personal post but I just have to share this real chapter of my life with you. I have had health issues for months now and was finally at a breaking point. I decided enough was enough and went to my doctor. I get my thyroid check done every six months since I had radioactive iodine treatment for my thyroid years ago. My Doctor and I see each other at least that often and he knows me well. But this time was different because I knew something else was wrong. I just felt it. I am not going to go into detail on my medical...

Last night was special and so we went out with the whole family to eat. This does not happen very often especially on weeknights. But it was awesome and we had a blessed evening. But when we got home there was so much more excitement in store for us. Bed time had been pushed way back since we went out and the kids were more hyper than usual because of all the fun. As a result bedtime was a challenge. But once we felt like they were down for the night I decided to put off work till morning and go relax before bed. My husband stayed up...

The other day I was chatting with my mother in law about this year. We were discussing God’s provision and timing this year. This year has been full of ups and downs.

This is a very personal and real topic  that I am sharing with you. I was always a pretty confident girl growing up. Things started to change when I went to college and started gaining weight. In my early twenties I started taking medicines for my thyroid and depression. I have cronic depression and as a result I have been on medicines ever since then. As I get older and hormones and thyroid levels fluxuate I have to change medicines. Now I can not say 100% that it is the medicine causing it or the fact that I feel better and so I eat...

A few months ago a family moved in near us. On our block all the kids play with each other before and after school.This little boy immediately had targets. He was so mean! He even bullied ME! As an adult I didn’t take any of that! But the other kids would end up in tears. They were scared of him. He took their things, hit, insulted and was just mean! He would come to my home and insult me and my kids and have complete disregard to my rules and parental authority. He is what I considered a bully! When I told my husband about him...
