Mommin’ Ain’t Easy

Today I am tired. Beyond tired. Exhausted may be the right word. I could just sit and cry. I love my sweet boy with all of my heart but today is hard. I just want to crawl back in bed and sleep the day away. Absolutely NOT possible with a busy, active 6 month old…

Boundaries with Kids

Another great reason I love this book on Boundaries is bc it talks about building boundaries with our children and doing that from a young age. We refer to boundaries with young children as discipline. It’s not an easy task as I am going to quickly learn, but I don’t want a little devil running…

Boundaries Part 2

So, I am back on the boundaries talk again today. As I am slowly working through this amazing book more and more is popping out to me. I really feel the Lord is using this book to teach me so much! Another law of boundaries is The Law of Responsibility. Many times we get off…

Boundaries

bound·a·ry ˈbound(ə)rē/Submit noun plural noun: boundaries a line that marks the limits of an area; a dividing line. This has been a BIG word in my life lately. I didn’t choose a word for 2016 like I usually do so I think I will choose this one for the 2nd half of the year. This…

Your Why

A reoccurring theme for me has been to figure out my why. Why do I do what I do everyday? What is the driving force? What keeps me going? I think I have a few basic answers for this but it’s definitely something I will be dwelling on over the coming weeks. As life changes…

I’m A Mom…weird 

When I think to myself that I now own the title mom I have to admit it’s weird lol. I never imagined I would have this amazing privilege and feel the way I do. Being a mom is definitely the hardest thing I have ever even attempted. Without the grace of God I couldn’t do…

What is your Beautiful Uncertainty?

This is the last day of the challenge. I adopted this challenge from author Mandy Hale. Her new book, “Beautiful Uncertainty” hit shelves yesterday and I can’t wait to read it! She is known as the “Single Woman” and I have followed her for a few years now. She is very inspirational and helped me…
