Soul Food Friday: I Need To See With A Pure Heart

It’s so hard for moms to find time for themselves.  For me, I tend to find time for reflection mostly in the car and before bed at night.  I keep the car radio on the Christian station and I try to really hear the words of the songs they play every time I go anywhere.  [...]

Teenage Self Esteem And Social Pressures


I don’t want to come across as a prude, but is it really necessary for young woman to “come-out” as sex icons as soon as they hit 18?  Well, even if I am, I don’t think my feelings on this subject are exactly prudish. I’m not talking about celebrities, although that’s relevant too.  I mean [...]

The Grass Is Always Greener

Why is it so hard to just be content? I feel like I spend an inordinate amount of time thinking about what I really want to be doing.  Questioning whether I like my life the way it is and trying to figure out what I can do to make it better. Don’t get me wrong.  [...]

No Easy Way

Reclaiming Our Sanity


All I did was turn off the TV, but it feels like so much more. As I sit here, reflecting on the day, I am struck by the overwhelming quiet and calm feeling that has enveloped our home.

I know: deep. Bear with me if you can.

Thoughts On Parenting: Who Am I?

I love my parents and I think they did an amazing job raising my sister and me.  Yet, since pregnancy, I have constantly agonized over the decisions I made (I know, par for the course) and the type of parent I wanted to be.  Even now, I could read a million and one books and [...]
