A little goes a looong way

Sometimes we make things so complicated. Our kids aren’t looking for the next Pinterest worthy accolade. Sometimes it’s a simple love note in a lunch box or crayon doodles on the back of a paper plate waiting to surprise them when they get up in the morning for their first day of school. It’s so … Continue reading A little goes a looong way

Undeserved Love

Today was filled with little people whininess and attitudes and fussing galore. Lions and tigers and bears, OH MY! Just an all around crapola day to be frankly honest.   So to salvage some sanity I put the kids to bed early and have been enjoying some quiet mommy and Jesus time. #breathe #sweetJesus  I … Continue reading Undeserved Love

A Kids Eye View

A Kids Eye View. I'm praying that we can carry our cross in such a way that our children are inspired to chase this thing with everything within them. Let's finish this race well – not being satisfied with just sliding by. Let's go the extra mile. Love when it hurts, give when it's almost gone. Life well, love well.

Dare to Compare

I've really tried to be a regular blogger. Really, I have. And then life happens. I miss a few days. Then a few days turns into a week and a half. Then come the questions. And comparisons. I've felt the pressure. The expectations. I've questioned myself. More than you know.. How often should I post? … Continue reading Dare to Compare

Fill Up, Babe.

It is so amazing to me how God unveils life's greatest wisdom through gentle whispers, if we will only make time to listen. We may need to clean a little wax from our stubborn ears in order to clearly hear His voice. Maybe wipe the dust from the bible on the night stand that has … Continue reading Fill Up, Babe.

More Than Enough.

Another day of endless sibling squabbles. More than enough. "Give me that! I had it first! That's mine! Stop it! He's pushing me! She did it!" The oh so familiar repetitive routine will wear down even the strongest ones. Some days are so completely exhausting. *insert long dramatic sigh here* And when those days become … Continue reading More Than Enough.

Mom-to-Mom

Ever feel like you're utterly alone? Hunched over a sink full of dirty dishes at 11pm trying to scrub away all of today's mishaps and blunders. You'd find your way to the couch to relax and catch up on a few minutes of your favorite reality show, but piled up is a week's worth of … Continue reading Mom-to-Mom

Confessions of a Worn Out Mama

Girl, motherhood will either make you or break you. And lately, I have felt so broken. I went to bed last night with a throbbing headache and woke up at 4:30am to a little princess who just couldn't go back to sleep after daddy left for work. My head is still pounding. Granted, it could … Continue reading Confessions of a Worn Out Mama

Calm in the Chaos

I don't know about you, but our lives can be so chaotic. My husband works full-time, I work part-time, we both serve our church as youth pastors, and I'm currently getting ready for the She Speaks Conference and writing my first book.  Whew!  All this on top of typical wifey/mommy duties. There will always be … Continue reading Calm in the Chaos
