Perspective on Loving My Children

A friend of mine from our homeschool co op shared this sweet little take on 1 Corinthians 13… it made me smile and brought courage to my heart. It is a day where I needed this strong reminder: all else (including freezing rain, cranky hearts, fussing siblings, sick kids, and halfhearted schoolwork) will fade away, […]

Big Kid Joys

I love babies. My mom might smile and tell you that’s largely because I’ve had “easy babies.” But let’s be honest: to at least a certain extent, babies are babies, and babies are also honed by the hard work of their mama. So while God definitely did give my babies their blessed personalities and natures, […]

He Makes All Things New

Acts 14:15 “…we bring you good news, that you should turn from vain things to the living God who made the heaven and the earth and the sea and all that is in them.” Revelation 21:5 “And He who was seated on the throne said, Behold, I am making all things new.“ Last month, I had […]

There are Days…

There are days when I am THAT mom. When I bring my daughter to storytime at the library even though she is coughing with a bark like a seal. When she sits in the front row, squished between total stranger toddlers, and proceeds to loudly make friends between conversations, giggles, coughs, and interacting with the […]

Be Encouraged, Mamas!

I recorded a little voice memo for myself not long after my husband bought me an iPhone. “Be encouraged. The work you are doing may be hard, and you’re in the thick of it. But you are doing GOOD WORK.” I often think about the good works God planned long ago for me to walk […]

Enjoy It

What is one of the first, last, and most common things that an older & wiser woman tells a young mama? Enjoy it. Enjoy these days, because they go by all too quickly. Oh! Don’t we know it! I do not begrudge the sentiment by a long shot, nor do I hold it against the throngs who […]

Photography Challenge, Week Twelve

Week Twelve: Artistic, Transportation Each week, I find myself trying various ideas and trying to be particularly artsy… but then I find myself back in my “real life mama” rut! So this week’s artistic interpretation of transportation, is simply a picture of all my babywearing gear. That’s how my littlest kiddos are transported around. And it’s […]

Life in the Weeds

I was gritting my teeth through the morning… two crying in one room while two squabbled in another… one wetting her pants while another filled his diaper… two boys throwing up hands because of math problems while the baby throws up milk because I didn’t pat out his burps while I want to throw in […]

Life as SAHM is (More Than) Enough

I praise my King, that He and His grace are sufficient (which means not only enough, but completely and totally filling it up to all the corners!) even for the moments where I muse about the following… where I wonder about myself and my work… where I ask Him, is it enough? and am I […]

Life in Ellipses

I know there are lots of jobs that dictate a life and routine with a rinse & repeat nature. Truly, that is how God created the world. Even He seems to live within a refrain ~ times and seasons, which are necessarily repetitious. It clearly does not mean that a repetitious, cyclical job is not […]
