Why Losing My Children Is Not My Worst Fear…

Why Losing My Children Is Not My Worst Fear…

I used to say my worst fear would be to lose my children on this earth. It’s not anymore. I sat on my knees last night at my daughter’s bedside humbly shedding tears submitting to Him and understanding losing them is no longer my worst fear. My worst fear would be if they grew to […]

5 Tips To Be More Engaged With Your Kids

As a work-from-home mom of two, balancing work, family time and all the duties that come with motherhood can be challenging. I also have increasingly found it harder to clearly define work-time and mom-time (which happens to be 24/7 time).  There are times that I have to balance the two roles, but there are other […]

An Honest Q&A To My Daughter About The Reality of Motherhood

I’m a mother of two young girls and I want them to know the reality of motherhood. So often, we don’t know the truths about being a mother until we’re in the midst of motherhood, trying to survive. I know that as the years pass and I move out of this season of being a young […]

I did my best – a letter to my daughters

To my daughters, I did my best. There are days when you both cry inconsolably and the comfort of my arms doesn’t calm you down right away, but I want you to know I give you my best. There are days when you need a little more discipline then normal and time-out becomes an emotion […]

Our tiny sparks…

Our tiny sparks…

“In the same way, the tongue is a small thing that makes grand speeches. But a tiny spark can set a great forest on fire.” James 3:5 To me, the tongue is the most powerful muscle in our body. With its movement we can leave greatness or destruction. When I read this verse this week, […]

As many of you already know, we were blessed with our second addition earlier this month. Little Laylin Jane arrived at 3:28am on August 9th, 2014. She weighed 6lbs, 9oz and was 19 inches long.

A Poem for My Little One

A Poem for My Little One

I had one of those breathtaking moments last night as I held my daughter before bedtime. I watched our shadows on the wall and realized she’s not going to be this small for much longer. It was such a sweet moment as I rubbed her back and she rubbed mine, squeezing one another so tight […]
