Smoke and Mirrors

How many times do you meet someone and wonder how they have it all together?  Or how many times have you found yourself envious of what someone else has?  We have all done it, so it’s okay.  No lying needed.  No cover up required.  Doesn’t mean it happens all the time.  It is a moment in passing, especially if you are working on your walk with our Lord.

Really?

Oh joy.  It’s February.  Valentine’s Day.  I am behind on my cool mom stuff I always try to do.  I don’t have my décor up.  I am sure being sick the past 3 weeks may have something to do with it.  But I have the mom guilt.  If you are a mom, then you know what I mean.  Mom guilt makes no sense.  But we have it.

Your Not Getting Brownie Points

Let’s make it simple.  Stop telling your children to treat others better than you are choosing to treat them.  Stop telling them to follow the Golden Rule when you yourself show the opposite.  Guidance and redirection doesn’t have to be put downs and intentionally hurtful. Continue reading

Not Their Responsibility

I have been wanting to write this for a while now.  I  was not quite sure if I could explain it the way my brain has thought it out.  Probably not, but it is worth a try.  Here goes transparency. Continue reading

Check Yourself

Mom and dad met.  I was born.  I had children.  I am married.  None of this I did on my own, and neither did you.  We are each guided by either God or the Enemy.  Seriously, take a look at the dumb stuff you have done.  We all have.  But God planned our existence.  He knows what plan he has for us.  There is a point where we have to decide which way we are going to choose.

Children Learning Truth

One of the greatest gifts we can give our children is the ability to be honest.  To teach them that lying is a sin.  We are just going to call it what it is.  One of the things that seems to be hard to overcome is explaining good vs. evil. I suppose it depends on where your religious views lie Continue reading

From The Hearts of Babes

This probably won’t be a very long post.  The picture says it all.  I try to incorporate God into every aspect of my children’s lives.  I am not perfect, I don’t claim to be.  Pretty sure I covered that already?  If not, then there you have it.  I may have seen a few squirrels. I do my best not to be judgmental, and if I have that human moment I am saved by the Holy Spirit kicking me in the face.  Really.  Sometimes we can all just be so stubborn.
