Anchors

  “When your children grasp for something to hold onto in the middle of the storm, they will reach for the anchor of your family.” “My mother was the most beautiful woman I ever saw. All I am I owe to my mother. I attribute all my success in life to the moral, intellectual and physical education I received from…

Boys will be Boys?

Boys will be Boys?

  Boys will be Boys? Seventy percent of all D’s and F’s are given to boys. Eight-five percent of stimulant drugs prescribed throughout the world are prescribed to American boys. Boys have fallen behind girls in virtually every area of education. According to The Demise of Guys, one in three boys is now considered a “heavy” porn user, with the…

2019 JumpStart!

2019 JumpStart!

As we enter this new year, I always find it both valuable and eye opening to take an honest look at where I am currently and where I would like to be. It is often times easy to stay on a familiar path and forget there are alternate routes and other highways that might open new opportunities, provide lighter loads…

Thanks Moms!

Thanks Moms!

  Newsflash…there is no such thing as a supermom.  Being a supermom in the sense of having a beautiful, immaculate home, working, keeping the laundry done, kids bathed, dinner on the table, wearing a size 4, driving the taxi with a song in your heart, being a math tutor and counselor may be a little out of reach.  However, laughing,…

Peaceable and Considerate

  “Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good, to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and to show true humility to all men” – Titus 3:1-2.

Oh Holy Night

Oh Holy Night

Oh Holy Night Let’s go on a journey of looking at the manger and take time to consider and ponder the events of the night. Within the moments is an intimate, personal experience for each of us; an opportunity to gaze into the eyes of the baby King and to those of His momma. As we celebrate the birth of…

Tree Envy

Tree Envy

Tree envy. Yep. I have it. Makes me laugh to say it that way. I didn’t actually say it quite like that, my friend Ana did, after I confessed to her that I am feeling slightly embarrassed by my Christmas tree last year. My coworkers and I were visiting about getting our decorating and shopping done and I shared with…

Seek Him

I love the holidays and I cannot even believe that they are upon us!  Time is flying by!  I have such fond memories of holidays spent at my Nana’s house with all of my cousins.  Those memories, no matter how distant, are still magical in my heart.  As an adult, who has spent some years doing this crazy adventure of…
