One day, as I was pulling my car over to nurse a screaming baby, I saw my other two toddlers napping in the car on the way home after having been at church for the fourth time that week for bible study, and ministry meetings. I remember feeling overwhelmed, and like, if I kept going at the pace I was, I might be sacrificing the legacy I was dreaming of–a vision God had placed in […]
A few months back, I was having a conversation with my eight year old and he asked me how long I have been a Christian.
I got a little giddy, because I love intimate conversations like these with my kids. And I shared with him, this Spring is going to be my 20th Re-Birthday! Looking confused he said, “But Mom, you’re 35, did you forget?”
“Of course not son, but when I was 15 years old, that […]
You may have thought since our youngest is almost 5 years old, we were done, right?
One of the benefits I have never experienced before is that everyone is potty trained and SUPER helpful!

My little Megan isn’t so little anymore either, […]

I didn’t want them to know I was a blogger or an author. I was scared it would negatively effect the authenticity of the potential friendship. Meaning, I didn’t want people to be intimidated and I didn’t want people to be attracted to having a friendship with me […]

When I was first asked to check out Ken’s new book coming out this next week on Jan. 27th, 2015, my first thought was, I have way too many other books on my reading list that I am currently trying to get through. I’m a mom, a wife who’s husband is building a business, which means he works late… often. I don’t have time to read another book!
But then I met with Ken, we talked […]
There I was hiding in a closet with a cup of coffee and a cupcake.
Have you ever had those moments in Motherhood, or days even, when you just want to hide?
When you just want quiet time alone?
Ok, I am just going to be real raw here. Some days, even some weeks, are just hard. On these days, delighting in your moments as a mom, is simply the farthest thing from the reality you are walking in. […]
