I'm a member of a large homeschooling group on Facebook, which has many differing opinions, to say the least! I have remained in the group because I value the input I receive there. At the same time, sometimes it's really difficult to keep my mouth shut when a question is thrown out there. Not too … Continue reading Do Moms Need Time to Themselves?
When I support a cause, I usually really support it. I'm not the type to halfheartedly give lip service to a very important topic and then let my actions speak otherwise. Abortion is that topic for me. My mind simply cannot wrap itself around how Christians in this country do not do more to speak for those … Continue reading Why I No Longer Shop at COACH and Bath & Body Works
There have been a cluster of sad stories concerning public school children recently. A few months ago the horrible Sandy Hook school shooting occurred in Connecticut, and a several weeks later an F5 tornado took the lives of 7 elementary school children in Oklahoma.

I've literally had tears well up over this, and … Continue reading The Time To Take a Closer Look At Our Public Schools is Now
Earlier in the week, I lost it. While all of my children are magnificent creatures, each one has their own strengths and weaknesses. I've learned over the years that God most definitely uses our children to sanctify us. The afternoon started as it usually does...my three-year-old's shoe was nowhere to be found. We were in … Continue reading Gospel-Centered Mothering
This week politics have been in the headlines, namely since Ted Cruz has suspended his presidential campaign. I'll be honest, I have been suspicious of Mr. Cruz from the beginning. Not that I think we have any good options, but I believe Ted did the best job of looking Christian, while trying to lie and cheat … Continue reading How a Christian Mom Can Help Shape Our Nation
