  • The last day of school arrived and as I drifted through the car line, I could picture it all. Over the summer we’d do all the workbooks, we’d be the family who fills out the reading log daily. We’d spend time journaling at the beach. We’d do school most mornings and then I’d send them back in the fall, brains overflowing with new knowledge. But then, we signed up for VBS and swim lessons and day camp and we had playdates and before I knew it, summer was almost half over and I wasn’t the summer Mom I thought I’d be.

  • It took me a long time to accept myself as being a human being mistake maker, one that sometimes makes wrong choices or simply makes a mistake in judgement. This stems from perfectionism. I grew up never being good enough…no matter what. So to compensate I developed a personality that wanted to do things “right” all the time, and although I knew deep down that I wasn’t perfect, I didn’t want you to know.

  • The words seemed to spin around in the air - into my head and then my heart. “I have cancer.” That’s what my dad told me over the phone a few weeks ago. As the words began to uneasily settle down into my brain, I found myself flooded with questions, the biggest one being - again? My dad had quite a fight with colon cancer four years ago. It was something that made me grateful I had previously reconnected with him after a couple years of being estranged. I used to often think, what if my dad dies and I wasn’t there for him? What if I never forgave him for the past?

  • I struggle to make sufficient time to spend time in prayer. It often seems like life is sucking out the little prayer spark we have left. My struggles to balance my time and create a perfect prayer space completely echo the hearts of many moms that work tireless both within and without of their homes. Do not despair, dear sister. Do you know there are several times these special opportunities come our way? I mean missed opportunities to let our hearts out and speak to our Heavenly Father.

  • I've worked outside the home for the duration of my motherhood, and I decided long ago to leave the mommy wars. Recently, I read a controversial article and scrolled through to the comments...and there, in the midst of them, was the comment that won the day. It was a reminder that stay-at-home moms are not only a luxury and a blessing to their families, but to all of us working moms as well.

  • As a teen mom I faced depression when I lost my boyfriend and most of my friends during my pregnancy. I dropped out of school and slept until noon. With each day that passed I put another brick on the wall I was building around my heart. Those bricks started tumbling when older women reached out to me with love and compassion. Because they loved me, I dared to believe God loved me too. Sometimes I wonder where I'd be today without those women.

  • Blueberry picking with the kids is one of my favorite summer traditions. Something about the simpleness of being out there with my family is special and relaxing to me. I think it must be all the memories that we've made while walking up and down those rows, filling our buckets.

  • We have three people that are not allowed to come to our home. Yes, you read that right. They are simply not allowed to cross the threshold of our door. They are people that disrupt our home and do everything imaginable that I wouldn’t want my kids doing.
