Recently I felt to take time and study not only women in the Bible but rather the mothers in the Bible. Who better to start with with then the very first mom created. Where’s what we know: – She’s the first woman created by God. – She’s the first person to sin and be deceived… Continue reading Forgive yourself
Depression and anxiety are real things. Just as it rains on the just and the unjust, as is so with these. Have I experienced these? Not as deep as some others I know. I recently wrote a blog Overcoming Mom Guilt about the severe mommy guilt – my black hole I call it, I experienced… Continue reading Anxiety and Depression are real
I felt stuck in this valley alone – Isn’t that often the way we feel when our minds deceive us – alone. My thought life ran rapid. I regularly thought negative and had bad dreams. Those dreams often ended with me thinking my family was better off with out me. I know this isn’t true.… Continue reading Overcoming Mom Guilt

Some are blessed to have those desires destroyed right… Continue reading The struggle is real – one day at a time.

And I can remember her letting me hold her cup of coffee… Continue reading The best macaroni and cheese recipe!!
Coke bottle. That’s how some of my high school friends described my body. A coke bottle – All the curves in all the right places. Even then, I didn’t fully believe my body was anything to look at. It wasn’t until after I had children that I missed and appreciated those curves. After having children I started… Continue reading the wife of his youth
If you would’ve asked me a year ago what I thought my biggest struggle was, I would’ve said managing my weight. About six months ago I learned that my struggle has not been my weight.
