Kristina has two kids with her husband of eleven years. She loves camping, canning, and cooking. She’s learning that the story God is writing for her is better than the one she could ever write for herself, which is a hard lesson to learn, because she also loves planning, security, and predictability. Kristina is chasing her dream and trying to be brave at FamilyWorkLife.com.

  • I’ve taken my kids on airplanes a bazillion times. Okay, maybe more like twenty – but most of those times have been on my own, without my husband to help. There are tons of tips around the interwebs for traveling with infants, but what about older children? Turns out some things get easier, and some things get a little more complicated. Here are some of my top tips to make your trip go as smooth as possible.

  • Top Ten Tuesday
    You guys. I’m not a fashionista. And I’ll be the first to admit I don’t always “get” the latest fashion trends. But we’ve all seen those jeans with the plastic knees that have been making their way around Facebook the last couple of weeks, and it seems that most of us are in agreement.

  • Don't you love it when you find a recipe that's simple, versatile, and delicious? I threw this together in 5 minutes (not even exaggerating) and used it in three different meals in one week (again, totally true).

  • Top Ten Tuesday
    A few weeks ago I put together a round-up of cute – but modest – swimsuits and a reader commented that she has a hard time trying to find modest two-pieces for her teen. They’re an active family and they value modesty, but appreciate the function and ease of a two-piece (hello, discreet potty breaks in the wilderness). I can absolutely appreciate the need to combine fashion + function, so the hunt began for cute, modest two-piece swimsuits. And here’s what I found!

  • You guys. You know how I enjoy finding ways to save money, right? Especially simple, uncomplicated ways? Well I found something I just can't keep to myself. And this post isn't even sponsored. It's just one mom, who found something amazing, sharing it with all the moms she knows to help them save a few bucks. Because we gotta stick together.
