The Morning of No iPad and Television

Alright, friends.  Story time. Last week I had a couple of separate conversations with a couple of different people (a friend and my husband) on the topic of screen time.  Now if I’m being perfectly honest, my kids are staring at screens way more than I’d like.  Like… a lot.  And yes, I’ve read the […]

Dolladrama

A couple weeks ago I had to run into Dollarama to buy some special dishes for a yummy breakfast I was planning to soon make myself.  I was walking quickly through the aisles to get what I needed and I could hear a mom hollering at her kids from somewhere out of sight.  I felt a […]

5 Stages of Motherhood

I’ve been thinking a lot this past week about motherhood and how hard it can sometimes be and what a journey it is.  I’ve been thinking about how we compare ourselves to other moms and how we put so much pressure on ourselves and how we never feel like we’re doing enough.  Or is that […]

Mother’s Day

Spirit-Led Motherhood

I closed my eyes and imagined it, or Him, or whatever it was, I imagined it flowing through my veins.  I imagined it mixing with my blood, moving my limbs, telling me where to go, what move to make next.  Peace washed over me, a peace completely unknown to me before this moment.  I opened […]

I Am A Terrible Mother

Source: stephaniehowell.typepad.com via Chelsey on Pinterest   I never knew how hard it would be to love them. To really love them. To treat them as if they are Christ. To love them in Spirit — love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. I didn’t realize that mothers and children are both equally sinful.  I […]

Fighting Words

It begins with passion and excitement. A prompting from the Lord; a call to something.  I accept His calling, as I made a decision long ago to live a “yes” life. Somewhere along the way, Satan wedges himself into my heart.  He plants little seeds, seeds that grow into weeds and choke out the fruit: […]

Book review blog?

Hi friends, I know I haven’t written in a while and book reviews have seemingly taken over! When I started this blog I wanted to write about my journey through motherhood and hopefully offer some encouragement to other moms, or at least a soft place to land. I have been blogging here since January 2010, […]
