You’ll Have 3 Under 3!?

In my high school years, I never understood the desire for motherhood. Partially because of how my mother and father's marriage crumbled and disintegrated into a steaming pile of brokenness devoid of integrity. It made me a bit of a cynic regarding wifedom and motherhood. Flash forward to 23 year old me, I'd been married … Continue reading You’ll Have 3 Under 3!?

Budgets, Babies, and Back seats

I hate budgeting. I'm good at formulating budgets. I'm even diligent in saving and tithing each month. But I'm not good at change, unexpected expenses, or STAYING WITHIN my budget.

I carefully plan my outings for … Continue reading What We Feed Our Chickens

Meet Our New Flock

"Know well the condition of your flocks..." Proverbs 27:23 I've been really convicted lately by my own pride keeping​ me from walking in God's will. The consequences have been emotionally devastating. I have a proclivity to make decisions in haste and then ask God's blessing on them without first seeking His guidance in the first … Continue reading Meet Our New Flock

First Post-second-baby Workout!

Today was a milestone for me. It marks the first day I've had both the time and energy for a decent workout. My daughter is 4 months old and I'm feeling really good- better than I did at this stage after my son was born. So, since both Bambinos decided to take a long late … Continue reading First Post-second-baby Workout!
