On Days When You Don’t Like Your Kids…

Every mom has been there... If she says she hasn't, she's lying. I love my children. I'd take a bullet for them, no questions. But there are days when I really just don't like them. My oldest is 3. That should be enough said. Honestly, 3 has been worse than two by far. Terrible 2's? … Continue reading On Days When You Don’t Like Your Kids…

Thoughts on Marriage: Christ First

The biggest takeaways from my 9 years of marriage have been monumental in strengthening my relationship with God and my husband, but none quite so much as the lesson that came in year 2. We had just moved to North Carolina where my husband was stationed at Camp Lejeune, as an 0811, field artillery cannoneer. … Continue reading Thoughts on Marriage: Christ First

Fortunately, the church had a really wonderful … Continue reading Even the Rocks Cry Out

For starters, … Continue reading Sex without Responsibility

Toxic Humanity

Look out, here comes my soap box. Apparently masculinity is toxic. I know, baby H... I'm confused/ surprised too... I learned this from a razor company. So, I guess beards are right out too? Who knew? I thought they made and sold shaving implements that assist me with my morning ablutions (yes, I used to … Continue reading Toxic Humanity

When God Disturbs Our Plans

Today was supposed to be a bulk cooking day to get some meals in my freezer for when baby #3 decides to arrive...  Instead, I've been in the hospital, trying to avoid preterm labor.  So far, still no baby. Which is great for my son- he needs to bake in there some more. But it's … Continue reading When God Disturbs Our Plans
