7 Important Scriptures Every Teen Should Know (Salt & Light Linkup #3)

“More than anything I want my kids to know who they are, who God is, and what He does. They need to know what God has already done and what He promises to do for them.” -Betsy DeCruz Let’s face it, being a parent is tough. It’s not for the weak that’s for sure, especially in today’s world. I know most of you will agree with this Momma’s heart when I say that I take…

How to Overcome Self Defeating Thoughts

I never thought I’d be a writer much less write a book. I knew how to write essay’s in high-school, and I’m fairly good at grammar, but although that’s real nice, it doesn’t make someone a good writer. There have been times on this journey of mine that I’ve almost given up. Sitting down at my silver laptop and writing words that I knew were there, have at times felt impossible. And that led to…

3 Ways to Stand Firm in the Faith (Linkup #2)

6
If you don't stand firm in your faith, you'll fall for anything. Here are 3 ways to stand firm!

“If you don’t stand for something, you’ll fall for anything.” Ever heard that quote? While it’s a true and positive quote and is used quite frequently in secular media, I prefer to say it this way “If you don’t stand firm in the faith, you will fall for anything.” It’s true, isn’t it? Satan does his best work when we’re not standing firm, and if we’re not careful we will find ourselves succumbing to his schemes…

How Being a Mom Has Drained Me

14
Mom-ing can be very draining, and sometimes we're drained until there's nothing left. Things like impatience, hate, bitterness...being a Mom has drained me of those things and I'm grateful!

It’s true, being a Mom has drained me. You get it. We give and give and give. There were days when mine were younger that I didn’t even want to get out of bed. It wasn’t that I didn’t love them; it was just that I had no energy to give. Watching one more episode of Teletubbies made me want to scream. Making sure they had breakfast and homework finished seemed like torture. I couldn’t…

The Amazing Struggle: The lessons in life we learn come through our struggles

The past year (or so) has been ridiculous (crazy is my definition of ridiculous) and the struggle has been real. God never promised us life would be easy. He DID promise us that He would be with us every step of the way. 2016 was certainly the year of struggles. Here’s my list: I struggled when I shared my story with the entire freaking world. {God gave me the words to speak} I struggled when…

To all the terrible Mama's: you're not so terrible

Welcome to the terrible Mama club! So, you’re a terrible Mama too, huh? Yeah, I get you. We were married 6 years before we had our first child, Alex Elizabeth. She came out looking just like her daddy. Uggh. Can I be honest? I was SUPER frustrated that this child looked nothing like me. I carried her for 9 months, 6 of which I threw up half the day. It was kinda nice when our…

Fiercely Fighting for my Marriage

Fiercely Fighting for my Marriage One night in April 2015, my husband moved out, leaving me and my three children alone in our home. I had sensed a separation brewing for many years, especially in the past six months.  After consoling our heartbroken children and dealing with my own pain that awful night, I was surprised to feel relieved. We had finally hit bottom, and the looming question of “When will he leave us?” had…
