It’s been rough. And it’s been oh so rewarding.
It’s been rough. And it’s been oh so rewarding. One day everything is normal. The next day everything is falling apart. Then everything is great. Then we’re back to normal. We had a particularly terrible day earlier this week. Well, I did at least. One kid wouldn’t let me put him down, but still fussed…Keep reading
It’s okay to choose the easy option.
I remember crying on the kitchen floor because I was so overwhelmed by having to clean the kitchen before making dinner.

It’s because love isn’t words. Love is actions.
You ever tell someone you loved them and knew they really didn’t believe it? Ever have someone tell you they love you and YOU didn’t believe it? I’ve been thinking about why this happens, this misalignment of affections. How can two people say they love each other and neither feel it’s true? It’s because love…Keep reading

Motherhood… am I right? 😳 It’ll test your patience.It’ll test your will.It’ll push bush buttons you didn’t know you had. And I want to enjoy every minute of it. Sure, motherhood is hard.

Wanna know how to love your husband – even though he breathes too loud?
Often times we get into thought patterns that are not helpful. We notice that our husband isn’t going out of his way to romance us and we think that’s a sign he doesn’t love us, instead of trying to understand him. My husband spends most of his day at work, this means his mind is…Keep reading
And to keep my sanity, all the multipiece toys are stored out of reach…
One very helpful thing I’ve done is create a Toy Library. Very similar to a toy rotation, but a lot easier to manage. My kids have a basket of toys in the living room (things like Buzz, Woody, Potato Head and other dolls and dinosaurs), they have a drawer each in their bedrooms for their…Keep reading

One thing that’s brought us closer together in marriage and helped us to spiritually grow together:
I’ve seen the greatest impact in my marriage from communicating EVERYTHING with my husband. There’s so many things I didn’t think my husband would really care about or understand, or I didn’t take the time to understand either, but when I started to explain my thoughts and feelings, my behaviors made more sense.Keep reading

If you’ve been called to it, you’re qualified for it. End of story.
Embracing yourself just as you are is the greatest act of rebellion in a world that’s telling you who and what to be. Try to see the light in every set back. Don’t let any labels that are put on you scare you away from fulfilling your purpose.Keep reading
