Praise Before the Breakthrough

God is everywhere, in the grief, in the pain, in the rejoicing, in the memories. God is found right in the faces of the people we love most. He is perfectly stitching the fabric of our lives together turning them into something so beautiful and brand new we sometimes have a hard time perceiving it. Life is new in this season. The way you handle life, nothing you have done or have been through will ever discredit you because the Lord is doing a new thing. Do you perceive it? And what are you going to do with it? . . . . . . #nanoinfluencer #discoverunder5k #influencerswanted #lifestyleinfluencer #influencernetwork #livinglifetothefullest #coastalva #hamptonroads #757 #microblogger #lovenn #easterfun #microblogger #propheticword #propheticblog #christiancreatives #mentalhealthmatters #griefsupport #faithblogging #christianblogger #anxietyhelp #mentalhealthcheckin

But Wait…This Hurts

Having a family of my own has forced me to look at what my family situation growing up actually looked like. We are now over 8 years into this whole parenting thing and I am realizing it is all just a case of the blind leading the blind. No matter how much we want to... Continue Reading →

Minnesota Unboxing

My 8 year old is obsessed with watching kids on YouTube review toys. This is a big thing. It is super weird and obnoxious but, it is a big thing. They call these "Toy Unboxings." My daughter has always had a huge love of baby dolls and as a result loves Baby Alive unboxings. If... Continue Reading →

Pity Parties in Thunderstorms

Let me tell you a secret about being a stay at home mom. We crave appreciation. CRAVE IT. Whoops, okay, maybe that is taking it too far. Maybe it’s just me? Maybe just once in awhile I would like my seven year old to stand up and sing my praises to the world for finding... Continue Reading →

Lost in Translation

I have had “suicidal thoughts” for the entire length of my depression extravaganza, but I had forgotten what it really felt like to be “done” until recently. The problem is definitions. Suicidal ideation is defined as “thinking about or planning suicide.” I learned early on that you have to really tame what you say when... Continue Reading →

The Trenches of Motherhood

Age gaps are peculiar things. I love my girls’ six year age difference. My oldest is the baby’s biggest fan. She cried happy tears for an hour when she found out she was going to be a big sister. To this day she is the first to get excited for any new milestone her baby... Continue Reading →
