  • Trade In The Lawn Mower

    From helicopters to lawn mowers, parents are changing their parenting and making the generations ahead more ready to receive a participation trophy than ever before. In a great effort to protect our kids, are we hurting them more than helping them? No one wants their kids to fail but I think we would all agree […]

  • No “Because I Said So”

    “Because I said so!” There are no words more annoying that have ever been spoken to a child. Mostly because kids and teenagers think they know better than their parents do and I don’t know about you, but I thought my dad was quite dumb until my 20’s. (I have already confessed to being a […]

  • Baggage

    “No matter how deep your failure, if you return home to God through Christ, he will heal your wounds, clothe your nakedness, restore your sanity, and welcome you home with singing.” Far too may times, we get so wrapped up in the moment that we forget that our choices we make now will impact our […]

  • Clear As Mud

    The struggle is real. Quite possibly the most popular saying in today’s world. A saying that rings true through some seasons more than others. I haven’t sat down to type in over a week because honestly, I didn’t have a single idea what to say. There have been times in my life that I knew […]

  • Weighted Down Thoughts

    Weight! The subject no one wants to talk about yet the one I think about every single day of my life! I have had an issue with body image as far back as I can remember. I always felt heavier than the girls around me and in junior high began experimenting with my first eating […]
