Someone On My Side | Powerful!

I have always had someone on my side and you do too!

In light of the tragedy in Baltimore, a few photos began circulating the internet. While the news is showing us the horrible, scary side of these riots, a few people were posting photos that shared hope. One photo in particular, stood out. In fact, it stood out so much that it went viral within just a few hours. It was so perfect, this beautiful, positive photo that shone brighter than all the negative news of that day. I shared it […]

Mommy's flower garden. A hand and footprint craft for mother's day.

With Mother’s day just around the corner, and I mean JUST around the corner! It is high time I put together a Mother’s day gift for my mom.

Kolton and I created a cute “Grandma’s Flower Garden” to give my mom. I figured the kids I nanny would also like to make this for their […]

Dear Homemaker, Are the inmates running the asylum? I hear you. Sometimes I look around my house and wonder how things got so out of hand. When I was a little girl, I dreamed about getting married, becoming a mommy, and having my own home. I imagined a home that was more than just 4 walls, a roof, and a mortgage. I wanted to make a special place that was a magical mash-up of: a school, a playground, a refuge, […]

Just My Son and I

We made memories that day. Just my son and I.

It was a busy day. I didn’t have to go to work that day, but still got up at 6:30 to get started on my chores. The to-do list was a mile long. Food needed prepared so we could eat. Laundry needed washed so we wouldn’t need to wear dirty clothes. And the house needed cleaned because one can only take so much dirt, mud, dust and cat hair. So I worked. It was just my son and I in […]

Folks, that cannot be good. It was a (not-so)clear indication that our water was […]

Maple Glazed Salmon with Ginger Cream Sauce

Sponsored posts are what keeps the lights on around here. I love finding creative ways to share and showcase my favorite brands.

My Maple Glazed Salmon with Creamy Ginger Sauce is one such example. The more I considered the recipe concept that was in my head, the more […]

Rise Above the Mess

Learn to rise above the mess, free in Christ.

(Written on Thursday) In considering the coming of Easter Sunday and how we celebrate Christ’s rising from the dead, another thought occurred to me.

In that great victory, we are given the freedom to rise above as well. Rise Above the Mess: Rise above our fears Rise above our pain Rise above our […]

Food for Thought ~ Reading List

Food for thought. The books I've been reading lately on faith, family and blogging :)

I’m a firm believer in the fact that what goes in, also comes out. I feel like what we read and watch affects our entire mindset and world-view.

They went a long ways towards shaping me into the woman I now am.I As a young adult, I had far more freedom in choosing the books I read, and sad to say I didn’t […]

Removing Yeast from Cloth Diapers and my Disposable Choice

Removing yeast from cloth diapers is important if you are going to cure baby's yeast.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Huggies┬«. All opinions are 100% mine. When baby has a diaper rash that lasts for days, or even weeks, it’s a sign that something not good is going on. Such was the case with Kolton. A little research revealed that he probably had yeast. The thing with yeast is if you cloth diaper, then not only does your baby have yeast, but your diapers do as well. Not only […]
