At the beginning of the year, on the morning of my birthday, I woke up thinking that I wanted/needed a scripture verse for the year. I read the verse of the day on my Bible app, which was John 14:27: Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to[…]

I am so excited to announce a new series about FEAR from a bunch of dear sisters of mine who will do me the honor of guest posting on the subject. In celebration of Helicopter Mom‘s launch, over the next few weeks we will be discussing fear, anxiety,[…]

This week has been long-anticipated for about 3 months in the Douglas School of Awesomeness. Jesse is in kindergarten and learns a new letter each week. This week it’s B- B for butterfly. And not unlike the rest of the country on Giraffe Baby watch, our family has[…]

This last week has been hard. I mean HARD! No, nobody died, I didn’t lose any limbs, the house did not burn down, and all our pets and houseplants are still alive… and  yet, I feel like I’ve been beaten on the inside with a baseball bat. I[…]

The following is a blog I wrote for Mom-Sense a few weeks ago. I had great feedback from it so I wanted to share it with you today. Scrolling through Facebook last night, I came across no less than 3 picture memes that all had to do with[…]
