Painting in the Snow

Yesterday was our first big snowfall of the this year! It’s weird because this winter has been cold, but not very white. Not like the last couple of years. I don’t mind really, even after seven years here I still don’t enjoy driving in it, but it’s one of the beauties of living here. Once […]

What’s a bonus to having another girl? We already have a ton of clothes from her sisters. However, a lot of the clothes we have were already hand-me-downs when my almost seven year old was born. So this year, I’m going through all our baby clothes and donating ones that are worn, out-dated, or ones […]

Prayer is so much more than a “last resort”

Prayer is so much more than a “last resort”

Last week at church, our pastor spoke on prayer. He spoke more on when we should have prayer, rather than just why. The short answer is often, not just when we feel it’s more needed, or a last resort. I’ve always believed in God. However, I used to be one of those people who only […]

How do you encourage the spirit of giving with your children? #GivingTuesday

It’s holiday season, and many of us just got done buying ALL THE THINGS. Right? While I didn’t go overboard, we did our fair share of toy shopping for the girls, and also to donate. Personally, I believe the best way to encourage our kids in the spirit of giving, is by discussing about giving – […]

Mini Rant: Kids DO Suck the Life Out of You

Mini Rant: Kids DO Suck the Life Out of You

If you’re looking for some encouraging words today, you’ll probably want to skip over this post. Last night, I bawled my eyes out. Yes, of course it’s because of the pregnancy hormones, but it’s also because I’m getting older and it sucks. In the last (almost) seven years I’ve had three (almost four) kids. I […]
