Most of my blog posts are 'in the moment' posts. Most of my ideas are not preplanned. When I write, I am typically experiencing whatever it is, in the moment. Today was no exception. From almost the moment I woke up, everything that could go wrong, did go wrong. With each pregnancy I experience lower… Continue reading When Things Go Wrong
The 'it is what it is' state of mind can be dangerous. This is saying, there are things happening outside of my control, there is nothing I can do to change what I'm going through or what the outcome might be. You deeply believe that this is it, the cards you've been dealt and now… Continue reading It Is What It Is…
Last week Anna and I popped into Walmart to grab a couple of things. I, of course, had to pep talk and bribe her with m&m's to make sure she knew today was a day she was riding in the cart, not walking. When we walked through the door, I seen a mom, close to… Continue reading Unconditional Love

You struggle to fall back asleep and think, 'what the heck is up with this wake up… Continue reading Be Still and Know
How did you like that Christmas bible study we worked through (refer back to my last post on Nov 6th if you can't remember)? Yeah... about that. There is no doubt, my next steps with Christ are along those lines of a bible study but a few things happened since November. 1) We found out… Continue reading God is not always fast, and neither am I
I'm sure I've written about this or perhaps I haven't. But I have spoken it to close friends many times. If I know 2 things about my relationships with God and what He has called me to do, it is to connect with people and to write. When I am deep in prayer, that is… Continue reading I’ve Got It!
We've been in our new house one full week, today. It feels good to have a home we know is going to be our forever home. We get to do things and make plans for the next 15+ years here. We are going to need every second of that time too because it's probably going… Continue reading If this, then that
You'd think as an adult, you would stop stop throwing the little tiny baby fits you had as a kid. Especially once you have kids because then you realize how ridiculous you're being sometimes.
