Well, it happened. My 10 month old got a splinter.. right in the palm of his tiny hand. I was sitting with him at the kitchen table when I noticed the irritated, inflamed spot on his tiny, right hand. What in the world was i suppose to do? There's no way Joshua was going to… Continue reading Splinters
As a former athlete, one phrase I heard and used quite often is, "All In". A few weeks ago as I was reflecting on 2017 and praying for 2018 this phrase, "all in" kept coming up in my thoughts. I didn't think much of it, it's just something I used to say. It was no… Continue reading Is 2018 the year?
I recently came across the quote "comparisons are never productive unless Christ is the mirror" and man, did it sting. I absolutely love the Christmas holiday season. Snowmen, stockings, garland, poinsettias, lights, and even window snow in a spray can, I love it all.

We've changed from PS3 controllers, golf clubs and Fantasy Football to musical light up toys, slobbery teething toys, and noisy rattlers. We've changed from "you won't believe what I did today!" To "he pooped… Continue reading My husband and I, we’ve changed.

Those of you with a fitness tracker or smart watch will be able to relate to my frustration. A couple years ago I received a pretty awesome Christmas gift.. I got an apple watch. I fell in love with it but one thing about it really irritated me. I'd be on the couch, enjoying my… Continue reading Goal Achieved
Spotlight of Thanks Today, I write this from my back porch surrounded by dirt roads and many acres of harvested corn fields. It's quiet, the air is still crisp from the morning desert air, and I'm thankful for this solitude. As I sit in the peaceful silence, I am excited to share Todays "Spotlight of… Continue reading Spotlight of Thanks
This morning I hear Joshua waking up and I know my morning alone time is over. I sluggishly walk into his room, pick him up, change his diaper, fix his breakfast, clean up his mess from breakfast, throw the dishes in the washer, grab the clean laundry and sit on the floor with him to… Continue reading When it feels like just another day
