A 5-year-old lesson in Idolatry

The boys have been saving change for months, so we finally took their treasure to the bank. After talking through their "budget" (giving, spending, depositing), we drove to Five Below so they could get their one thing. Never did I realize how this action would pan out in the next 24 hours... At first, both... Continue Reading →

To the Working Mom

To you who have chosen and dared to not stay at home and raise your kids. Don’t worry. I’m not here to bash your career choices and hail all mothers to stay-at-home. I actually admire you because I know the work it takes to work AND be a mom. ALOT. From one former working mom... Continue Reading →

Children = Arrows

Okay! I'm going to hit on the next part of this series/study I'm doing: Children = Arrows. I got some good feedback on and off of WordPress about the last post, so I hope this helps and challenges you just as it has and continues to challenge me. This is a little longer than the...

While doing our family focus one year, my husband explained that he really felt our family verse needed to be Proverbs 3:5 (and... Continue Reading →

I thought this blog would present my views on those matters, but I realize not at this time. I don’t know why, but... Continue Reading →

“I’m losing my mind…”

I hit rock bottom… or maybe the rock hit me… either way, the other night was a heavy one I could not bear.   The myriad of changes that came to our home as a new (again) parent were normal but escalated to a 3rd-child degree. There was the increased laundry from the baby pooping and/or spitting up... Continue Reading →

Having children close in age is something new to me; my sisters and I are 10 and 17 years apart!  With the boys, it's been amazing to see how they interact with each other- in conversations, completing tasks, wrestling (it has begun...) and now more recently, playing in their band.  Yes... they have a band...
