• Can We Stop Worrying?

    I was having a conversation with Jimmy today and it really spoke to me. He said he was worried about me, our family and some other things. It made me think, can we stop worrying?  I think it is hard to stop, but I think we can. What can we […]

  • The Fall Harvest

     To me Fall means harvesting and changing. Change is inevitable. However it also means a season of thankfulness.    As I think about this, I can’t help but think how God has worked in my life these past couple weeks. I have cried a lot of tears. I am talking […]

  • Letting Go and Trusting God

    I am so happy that August has come and gone. It was a super tough month for Jimmy and I. We had to put Cashew down midway through the month and that was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. Watching the pain in the eyes […]

  • Fun Ways to Pack School Lunches

    School is full swing and so are school lunches. I personally love to pack lunches. I definitely get this from my mom. She always packed our lunches growing up and I enjoy doing the same for my kids. When the kids moved in, they wanted me to pack their lunch […]

  • Motherhood is hard…But worth it

    Is motherhood supposed to be hard? Have you ever asked yourself that question or ask someone else that question? I have been thinking a lot about that question lately. The last month has been a hard month being a mom, I mean a really hard month. I have gone to […]

  • Let’s Be Present

    You know the saying: stop and smell the roses. I have been trying to do that lately. In the world we live in, it is hard to do. Everyone is always going, going, going, myself included. When we were on vacation, I brought my camera because I wanted to take […]

  • Let’s Gather Around The Table

    Are you stressing about Easter brunch or dinner? Are you worried that your house is a mess? Are you comparing yourself to other people on Instagram? Don’t do any of those things. If we think about it, Jesus talks a lot about hospitality in the Bible. In fact throughout the […]

  • Encouragement From The Kitchen

    In the past few weeks I have really been focusing on encouraging Jimmy and the kids. I think daily encouragement can be a game changer for anyone, including myself. It isn’t always easy to encourage others when things aren’t going the way you hope they go. This was very true […]

  • A Shift In Our Household

    One day last week when I was in the kitchen cleaning up after the kids went to bed I started thinking about how there has been a shift in our home recently. I am happy there has been a shift in our house, I feel like it has been a […]

  • What Is Productive For Moms?

    How many times have you thought at the end of the day, I wish I was more productive? I pretty much think that a lot, especially the past few weeks. Like I am wondering where the month of February went? I didn’t get done what I wanted to and some […]

  • The Old Us, The New Us

    Jimmy and I had our first date night since the end of last April. We had a rule that we were allowed to talk about the kids. I was actually scared that dinner would be silent, because we weren’t talking about the kids. Instead it felt like the old us, […]
