There’s a gal on Instagram that I enjoying following. She’s a young lady, I think maybe in her mid 20’s, that lives in Texas. She’s a teacher and she also created an online digital planner among other cool tools. What I love about her posts and stories is her positive attitude and that she is… Continue reading Trust is: leaning on God
Last night as I finally called it a day, I rolled to my left side and pulled up the covers around me; and in that second between feeling the comfort and warmth of my bed, I thought of my two girls sleeping soundly in the room next to me and I was filled with such… Continue reading Unfolding What Matters
Hi there, it’s been awhile for sure! Before I just jump right in I want to say that I hope that wherever you are reading this from, I pray that you, your family, loved ones, and friends are well, calm, and healthy.

I picked up Lysa Terkeurst’s book “It’s Not Supposed To Be This Way.” Not because I’m currently going through life shattering heartache or pain, but I have been there before and I have close friends and family that are there now. I picked it up because sometimes pain, difficulties, or heartache don’t need to be… Continue reading Miraculous fixes without pain

The title is New Hope for Moms Who Won’t Give Up, with special speaker (author & mom) Sarah Parshall Perry. This lady had me laughing, nodding in agreement and wanting to… Continue reading Encouragement for Moms
I kept thinking about last night’s post and the whole idea of keeping that child like wonder in the midst of the daily grind. Don’t get me wrong, I’m the first to admit that frame of mind can be way easier said than done. There have been more times than I care to admit that… Continue reading Childlike wonder at Costco
A couple of weeks ago I woke up tired and cranky, and with a big checklist on my mind. It was Sunday and the last couple of nights sleep leading up to Sunday had been interrupted by the girls. Lack of sleep is always a deal breaker for me but it’s certainly the new normal… Continue reading Bring out the wonder and explore!
No matter how much I think I have things laid out and under control, nothing ever truly goes as planned. On my way to my parents house this morning to drop off Celeste before heading into work, I called my mom to let her know Celeste would be going to VBS today. So I would… Continue reading A whole lot of faith and grace
I sometimes wear this light blue beaded bracelet with the word “balance”. It’s a nice reminder when I’m feeling overwhelmed; sometimes it helps, sometimes it doesn’t. I often think of the quote “you cannot pour from an empty cup”. It’s the same idea of when you’re in a plane and they tell you that in… Continue reading Can there be balance in Motherhood?
A few days ago I was driving Celeste to her dance class and asked her how her day was going. As we got to sharing, I realized a few of the things she mentioned to me focused mainly on her little sister’s not so good behavior choices. So I asked her to tell me something… Continue reading The sibling bond – heart to heart.
