Confession-I’m not ready for Easter!

It’s Easter in five days and I haven’t done a thing with my kids. Easter came fast for me. Maybe you can relate? Easter is my favorite holiday of all time yet I haven’t taken time to reflect on the significance of Easter or even help my kids reflect. It’s in these moments that I have to remember that a little is still a lot.

Warning! There Will Be Side Effects

One of our family goals this year is to read one parenting and marriage book per quarter.  Last week, I shared about the parenting book Jonathan and I read together called You Can’t Make Me by Cynthia Ulrich Thomas. Today, I will be sharing about the marriage book we read together called Kiss Me Like You Mean It by Dr. David Clarke.

The Secret of Being Content

What is the secret of being content? The apostle Paul tells us in our verses for today that he knows the secret of living content. What does it mean to be content? In today’s blog post, I will unpack this a little bit.

Update on my 2017 Goals + Habits

It’s already March! Wow, I can’t believe how fast this year is going. I wanted to give an update on how I am doing with my goals for this year. I will break it into two different posts. This post is about Myself and Marriage Goals. I have also included an update on my habits for the year.

Can I have a do over please?

Did you struggle to get out of bed this morning? Maybe you woke up and wanted a do-over. As you laid there, did you remember that terrible thing you said yesterday to your spouse or your kid or maybe even a friend? Oh, how you wish you could take it back. Or maybe you struggled yesterday to believe God’s truth over man’s lies. Maybe that script in your head kicked in and it was hard to fight it. And then you wondered to yourself, will I ever change?  YES!! A thousand times yes! You can change those bad habits. Every day, you get a fresh start.

Show Me The Way

Have you ever said to someone "show me"?  Often my kids will say that to me. The other day, God used one of those times to teach me. “Mom, I want to work on the big puzzle,” Caleb said to me while I was hanging laundry downstairs. I encouraged him to work on it. Not even a minute later “Mom, it’s too hard!! It has too many pieces.”
