Holy Moments Tucked Into Your Every-day-ordinary

It’s 9 o’clock at night at the time of this post. I’m exhausted. There are crumbs beneath my flip-flops. I feel them with every step. I hate crumbs on the floor. The science book and binder rest on our dining room table, along with a pink doll car, a headband, a protractor, a paper hole […]

One of the major challenges of living in the Internet age is the amount of information our children are bombarded with. Sadly much of that information is tainted with sexual content beyond their years. Don’t believe me?

Scripture Memorization For Children

Although you can pick any scripture to memorize, I like to pray and use scripture that best applies to our current situation.

This is what life looks like when you’re sitting in a hospital room. Seconds turning into minutes, minutes turning into hours, hours turning into days, days turning into weeks… time just keeps moving forward. Having our world stand still can be so difficult. Especially true, when looking out of your window you notice everyone else […]

Change Your Focus {Look Forward To The Celebration}

“Mom, I really want you to come home,” my chunka-wunka of a Princess is crying now. She’s five years old and to her, these 11 days of my son’s hospitalization (over an hour away from home), feel like an eternity. I understand. It feels like an eternity for me too. Before my husband drops us […]
